January 20, 2020 Sony FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS Review

I personally welcomed the announcement of the Sony FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS lens for the simple reason that it created a way to get extended reach for Sony shooters without breaking the bank.  Tamron helped create a huge market for the “affordable super-telephoto” class of lenses when it released the 150-600m [Read more...]

January 18, 2020 Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DN ART Image Gallery

There are few lenses more important to photography than the 24-70mm F2.8 standard zoom, which covers everything from landscape focal lengths to one of the favored focal lengths for portrait photography.  Most photographers could do at least 80% of their photography with such a lens.  Sigma has followed up their excelle [Read more...]

January 13, 2020 Samyang AF 18mm F2.8 Review (Sony FE)

Korean lens maker Samyang (also sold as Rokinon in some markets) has had a bifurcated approach to lens development on Sony’s FE (full frame mirrorless platform). They have released (at this point) a traditional trinity of wide aperture F1.4 primes (35, 50, and 85mm – all of which I’ve reviewed if you click the link [&helli [Read more...]

January 10, 2020 Sony FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3G OSS Image Gallery

I personally welcomed the announcement of the Sony FE 200-600mm F5.6-6.3 G OSS lens.  Tamron helped create a huge market for the “affordable super-telephoto” class of lenses when it released the 150-600mm F5-6.3 VC USD back at the beginning of 2014.  Many amateur photographers will never be able to afford t [Read more...]

January 9, 2020 Yasuhara Anthy 35mm F1.8 RF Review

With any new camera system there is a vulnerable period where the quantity and quality of lenses available for the system can either make or break its momentum.  Canon has been weathering that storm on its “R” full frame mirrorless platform, where of the ten RF mount lenses from Canon at this point, only two [&h [Read more...]

January 6, 2020 Tamron 35mm F2.8 OSD M1:2 Review (F053)

The Tamron 35mm F2.8 OSD M1:2 (F053) is one of a trio of new prime lenses for Sony FE recently announced and released by third party lens maker Tamron. Tamron first entered the FE space with two zoom lenses (17-28mm F2.8 RXD and 28-75mm F2.8 RXD) which have been very well received, and now Tamron […] [Read more...]

January 4, 2020 Samyang AF 18mm F2.8 Image Gallery

The Samyang AF 18mm F2.8 is a welcome addition to Samyang’s “Tiny Series” of lenses.  It’s wonderfully compact (60mm long) and weighs only 145g, and yet covers a prime focal length for landscapes, astrophotography, and other wide angle work with a reasonably bright maximum aperture.  If the opti [Read more...]
