September 15, 2020 Fujinon XF 23mm F2 R WR Review

There is an ongoing debate as to whether Fujifilm’s choice to focus on APS-C is the right one.  I’ve engaged in that debate myself, but I think that lenses like the Fujinon XF 23mm F2 R WR represent the most compelling argument for their choice.  Their F2 (and F2.8 options like the 16mm) are compact, [&hell [Read more...]

September 2, 2020 Sony FE 90mm F2.8 Macro G OSS Review

I only began to review Sony products in 2017, and my focus has primarily been upon the newer cameras and lenses released since that point, so I barely missed the Sony FE 90mm F2.8 Macro G OSS, which was released just a few months before I started to cover Sony.  The 90G Macro (as we’ll […] [Read more...]

August 24, 2020 Viltrox AF 23mm F1.4 Review

Viltrox has quickly established a name for themselves because, unlike most other new boutique lens makers, they have quickly (and successfully) accepted the challenge of designing autofocus lenses rather than just manual focus options.  Many other newer brands have not yet taken that plunge, but Viltrox has shown a rapid ma [Read more...]

August 20, 2020 Traveling with the Tamron 28-200mm RXD

When I reviewed the Tamron 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 RXD in June of 2020, I theorized that it might just be the best travel option available on Sony.  I put that to the test recently and traveled to Mont Tremblant, Quebec (one of my favorite spots), and used the A071 (28-200mm) almost exclusively on that trip.  I […] [Read more...]

August 6, 2020 Sigma 85mm F1.4 DN ART Review

The arrival of the Sigma 85mm F1.4 in late 2016 left me very conflicted, which is reflected in my review of that lens.  On one hand, there was no question that the lens was very strong optically (one of the best to date), though there were a few quirks that I felt necessary to point […] [Read more...]

August 4, 2020 Fujinon XF 50-140mm F2.8 OIS Review

One of the unique strengths of the Fuji ecosystem is the wide range of lenses of varying quality and price points specifically designed around the APS-C sensor (in this case a 1.5x crop factor compared to 35mm/full frame).  Fuji’s APS-C-centric focus has allowed them to both maximize the potential of an APS-C sensor and a [Read more...]
