April 19, 2019 Zeiss Loxia 25mm F2.4 Distagon 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...]

April 12, 2019 Sony a6400 Review

Sony surprised some of us with the announcement of the Sony a6400 APS-C mirrorless camera.  Many of us expected Sony to continue moving upscale with an a6500 replacement, but instead it appears that Sony is going flesh out their APS-C mirrorless offerings with more of an upgrade to the a6300 (in the a6400) while then [&hell [Read more...]

April 7, 2019 Irix Edge Filters Review

Irix made their mark with a bevy of well-received wide angle lenses, including a super-wide-angle 11mm F4 lens along with a 15mm F2.4 that I reviewed last year.  Their most recent lens release has set their sites in a different direction – a telephoto macro lens.  The Irix 150mm F2.8 1:1 Macro is a very [… [Read more...]

April 6, 2019 Samyang AF 85mm F1.4 FE Image Gallery

The Samyang AF 85mm F1.4 for Sony FE has been one of the lenses I’ve been most excited about since Samyang told me it was coming.  Why?  On a personal note, because I’ve been wanting a good portrait lens for Sony.  I’ve been adapting the Tamron SP 85mm F1.8 VC lens, which is a nice […] [Read more...]

March 29, 2019 Fuji XF 16-55mm F2.8 LM WR Review

A few months back I reviewed the newest Fujinon lens in the Fuji “trinity” of fast, F2.8 zoom lenses.  That lens (the XF 8-16mm F2.8 WR) makes up the wide end of the spectrum while the XF 50-140mm F2.8 OS WR covers the telephoto end.  In between those lenses lies the most commonly used option […] [Read more...]

March 27, 2019 Sigma DN 56mm F1.4 C Image Gallery

Sigma has once again managed to do for mirrorless what they seemingly cannot do with DSLR lenses – make an optically excellent, COMPACT lens.   The Sigma DN 56mm F1.4 C is the 6th (by my count) of Sigma’s DN line for APS-C (and Micro 4/3rds) mirrorless cameras.  The first series were the ART primes (ti [Read more...]
