May 23, 2022 Viltrox AF 13mm F1.4 STM Review

Viltrox has proven to be an aggressive new player on the lens market that isn’t afraid to take some risks.  I started reviewing manual focus lenses from them, which quickly turned to autofocus lenses.  They’ve boldly gone into new market space – Fuji X, Canon M, Canon RF, Nikon Z, along with the Sony [Read more...]

May 12, 2022 Fujinon XF 70-300mm F4-5.6 OIS LM WR Review

Every camera system needs some reasonable options for telephoto reach, and for many full frame platforms, the standard focal lengths are 70-300mm and 100-400mm.  The Fujinon XF 70-300mm F4-5.6 R LM OIS WR covers both in a sense, as it carries the standard 70-300mm focal range designation, but since it is designed for Fujifi [Read more...]

May 2, 2022 Sony E 70-350mm F4.5-6.3 G OSS review

Sony’s development for it’s APS-C mirrorless E-mount has been rather underwhelming, with new releases (from Sony, at least) being very rare.  I’ve reviewed plenty of E-mount lenses over the past five years (including many autofocusing lenses), but they tend to be from Tamron, Sigma, Samyang, and Viltrox.&n [Read more...]

April 21, 2022 Jackery Explorer 1000 Portable Power Solution Review

Several months ago I took a chance on Jackery, a company that specializes in remote power options like powerful battery systems and portable solar panels, and reviewed their Explorer 300 and SolarSaga 100 (solar panel) combination.  I was very impressed with the build and execution of the package, and I’ve taken to fr [Read more...]

April 18, 2022 Canon RF 100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM Review

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...]
