November 16, 2018 Fujinon XF 200mm F2 OIS WR Image Galleries

I’ve just started a brand new partnership with FUJIFilm where I will start to spend some time reviewing some of their products, and I’ve started with the newest and brightest – their X-T3 Flagship camera body and the monster XF 200mm F2 OIS lens.  This is a high-end, high-priced super telephoto with the bu [Read more...]

November 14, 2018 Tamron SP 15-30mm F2.8 VC G2 (A041) Review

The Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD entered my collection a few months after my review of the lens in February 2015.  It resonated to me as a lens that, while large and heavy, really delivered a fantastic optical performance.  It was also the only wide angle zoom at the time to hit 15mm […] [Read more...]

November 12, 2018 Canon EOS R Image Galleries

Canon has FINALLY released a full frame mirrorless camera – the Canon EOS R.  They have also launched a new lens mount – the RF.  While many people advocated for Canon to retain the EF mount, early development for the platform shows that the RF mount may be the most exciting component thus far, with [&helli [Read more...]

November 6, 2018 Skylum Luminar 2018 Photo Editing Software Review

Many photographers like myself have used Adobe’s Lightroom and Photoshop software for editing our photos for many years, but a few years back Adobe switched to a Cloud model that seemed a bit too much like renting software for a lot of photographers.  A number of photographers began looking for alternate pieces of sof [Read more...]

November 5, 2018 Zeiss Loxia 35mm F2 Biogon Review

The original idea behind mirrorless cameras was they would be smaller, lighter alternatives to DSLRs due to the differences in technology while providing similar levels of optical performance.  As I’ve noted in many subsequent reviews this idea is often lost, as frequently lenses designed for mirrorless (like the Sony [Read more...]

October 29, 2018 Tamron 17-35mm F2.8-4 OSD (A037) Image Galleries

There have been a variety of high end wide-angle zooms and primes released over the past 4-5 years, but very few in an important demographic – the affordable end of the full frame spectrum.  Tamron is looking to address that with their new 17-35mm F2.8-4 Di OSD lens.  It sports a nicely weather-sealed body in [&h [Read more...]

October 26, 2018 Tamron SP 15-30mm F2.8 VC G2 (A041) Image Gallery

The Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD entered my collection a few months after my review of the lens in February 2015.  It resonated to me as a lens that, while large and heavy, really delivered a fantastic optical performance.  Since that point nearly four years ago I’ve pitted it against many other wide [&helli [Read more...]

October 24, 2018 Sigma 24mm f1.4 ART Review

Sigma has faced a bit of an uphill battle with the FE versions of their ART series if the anecdotal feedback I have received is a valid indicator of the market.  Size matters, and the ART series lenses were already typically either the largest and heaviest in their class or close to it…and that was […] [Read more...]
