December 3, 2020 Meike 50mm F1.2L RF Review and Gallery

There’s no question that Canon has developed some very impressive lenses for their EOS R full frame cameras, and the new EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras are also impressive.  What is also undeniable, however, is that many of the new Canon RF mount lenses are also very, very expensive.  Case in point:  I spent [&he [Read more...]

December 1, 2020 Sigma 35mm F2 DG DN Review

In late 2019 I reviewed the Sigma 45mm F2.8 DN lens, and, while I loved the build of the lens, I concluded that it was a bit of an oddball.  It was released in concert with a couple of other lenses, one being the uber-premium 35mm F1.2 DN and the other being the 24-70mm F2.8 […] [Read more...]

November 23, 2020 Tamron 70-300mm F4.5-6.3 RXD (A047) Review

Tamron has been on a tear in the last few years on the Sony FE (full frame E-mount) platform, releasing one high-performing, reasonably priced zoom after another.  This started with the very well received 28-75mm F2.8, followed by the 17-28mm F2.8, then 70-180mm F2.8, the travel-ready 28-200mm F2.8-5.6, and now a longer tel [Read more...]

November 16, 2020 Samyang AF 35mm F1.8 FE Review

The size of mirrorless cameras has trended ever larger as the early focus on (mostly) smaller sensors and compact lenses has shifted to high resolution full frame sensors and professional grade lenses designed to match (or exceed) what was available for DSLRs in the past.  Some of us don’t mind this trend, as we are [ [Read more...]

November 11, 2020 Sony FE 28-60mm F4-5.6 Review

Sony has debuted a new kit lens with the a7C, a retractable zoom design.  This will likely replace the unlamented FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS lens, which, on paper, seems to have the advantage over a lens with a smaller zoom range, a slightly smaller maximum aperture on the wide end (F4 vs F3.5), and one […] [Read more...]
