June 1, 2020 Samyang RF 85mm F1.4 AF Review

At the beginning of this year I was delighted when Samyang released the Samyang AF 14mm F2.8 lens in an RF mount.  It was an autofocusing lens (and one that autofocuses very well on the Canon EOS R that I tested it on) and also had a beautiful, weather sealed build.  To this point there […] [Read more...]

May 27, 2020 Pergear 35mm F1.6 Image Gallery & Review

Pergear has delivered another ultra-cheap lens to follow up on the Pergear 25mm F1.8, that I reviewed earlier this year.  That lens roughly corresponded to a traditional 35mm focal length on full frame (37.5mm), while the new lens, the Pergear 35mm F1.6, has an 52.5mm equivalent focal length, making it a “normal” [Read more...]

May 18, 2020 Samyang AF 75mm F1.8 (Sony FE) Review

In late March, Samyang contacted me to see if I wanted to look at a new lens.  I agreed, but they didn’t specify what the lens was.  I didn’t know until it arrived, but was very interested to discover a compact, portrait oriented prime lens at a focal length that I’ve never tested before – [&hel [Read more...]

May 13, 2020 TTArtisan 11mm F2.8 Fisheye Review and Gallery

Fisheye lenses are out on the extremes of photography.  Whereas often I’m evaluating lenses and critiquing if they have distortion, fisheye lenses are really all about embracing the distortion and using it in creative ways.  It’s not for beginners, and certainly can be used poorly, but there are also a lot [Read more...]

May 12, 2020 Voigtländer APO-Lanthar 50mm F2 Review

After reviewing a few Voigtländer lenses earlier this year (110mm Macro – review here and 40mm F1.2 – review here), I had a number of requests to cover the new Voigtländer APO-Lanthar 50mm F2 lens.  I explained that Voigtländer reviews were limited due my not having extensive access to them, but one of my vie [Read more...]

May 2, 2020 Sony 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 G Master OSS Review

The Sony FE 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 G Master OSS is an indispensable lens if you need versatile reach for sports or wildlife photography.  Other telephoto lenses that reach beyond 400mm grow exponentially, leaving the 100-400mm to often being the smallest, lightest, most convenient package to get serious reach.  Probably th [Read more...]
