April 10, 2022 Canon RF 100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM Image Gallery

I recently finished up my review of the L (luxury) series Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS – a lens that is thoroughly premium in both performance and price (retailing for about $2900 USD!).  That price point is a prohibitively high bar for many photographers, however.  Fortunately Canon has already created a much les [Read more...]

March 31, 2022 NiSi V7 Landscape Filter System Review + Gallery

My first encounter with the company NiSi was actually to review their first lens.  NiSi has historically been a company that has made filters for other people’s lenses, and a search of their products shows a lot of filters with very high reviews.  But at some point they clearly decided that their optical glass ex [Read more...]

March 28, 2022 Laowa 20mm F4 Shift Lens Review

Laowa (Venus Optics) has never been afraid to take on challenging lens designs.  It is hard to find a “conventional” lens in their lineup, as every lens has some kind of unique twist to it.  Macro at very wide angles or extremely high magnification levels, a design that emphasizes zero distortion in a very [Read more...]

March 22, 2022 Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM Review

When the Canon EF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6L IS II released in the beginning of 2015 it effectively ended the question of what the best telephoto zoom in or around this focal length was.  The 100-400L II was a clearly superior lens, with a fabulous build, some new innovative design elements, great autofocus, and amazing image qual [Read more...]

March 4, 2022 Fujinon GF 110mm F2 WR LM Review

I started to get requests and suggestions to review the Fujinon GF 110mm F2 R WR LM from the moment that I started to review Fujifilm’s medium format systems.  I was assured that I would love the lens, and that it was optically one that could really take advantage of the resolution of the sensors.  […] [Read more...]

February 28, 2022 Fujinon GF 35-70mm F4.5-5.6 WR Review

Fujifilm has been slowly expanding their lineup of lenses for their GFX Medium Format system.  In times past Fuji has largely operated as a closed platform, with almost all lenses being first party (Fujinon) lenses.  That’s starting to change on the APS-C front, but in the medium format space it remains the case.
