April 18, 2018 The Château Laurier: When Luxury Came to Ottawa

  Who says you can’t mix business with pleasure? One of the best parts of what I do is the opportunity to take the lovely Mrs. A and a camera or two into new places and experiences. My camera has opened up a number of doors into some special places. Most recently that included a […]

April 16, 2018 Zonlai 22mm f/1.8 Final Review

A few years ago, my job was simpler. As a Canon reviewer, there were basically only four companies that made most all of the lenses: Canon, Sigma, Tamron, and Zeiss. Three Japanese companies and a German company who produces their SLR lenses in Japan. Then came along the Korean company Samyang/Rokinon who began to challenge […]

April 11, 2018 Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8 Distagon FE Review

The very first Sony FE lens that I reviewed was not a Sony; it was a Zeiss.  When Zeiss approached me about reviewing the Zeiss Batis APO Sonnar 135mm f/2.8 lens, I actually had no way of doing so as I didn’t own any Sony bodies.  B&H Photo bailed me out by loaning me an […]

April 9, 2018 Macy and Zachary

Macy and Zachary got married on an unseasonably cold day in April, but despite the blustery weather, it was a warm and happy event.  The couple had a beautifully decorated church and hall along with a few Star Wars themed moments.  Particularly poignant moments were when Macy’s father sang to her before giving her away, […]

It’s been a while since I’ve had a new lens in a Canon mount on hand, but the one I’ve got at the moment is an exciting one – the new Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 ART!  The one lens that Nikon has that has made a lot of Canon shooters jealous is the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 […]

April 4, 2018 Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Review

The very first Sony FE lens that I reviewed was not a Sony; it was a Zeiss.  When Zeiss approached me about reviewing the Zeiss Batis APO Sonnar 135mm f/2.8 lens, I actually had no way of doing so as I didn’t own any Sony bodies.  B&H Photo bailed me out by loaning me an […]

April 2, 2018 Zonlai 22mm f/1.8 Image Gallery

It seems like new lens makers are popping up all over the place now, and these galleries are dedicated to what is, to me, a brand new company.  I hadn’t heard of Zonlai before their distributor contacted me about potentially doing a review, but in many ways I’ve been quite impressed with this inexpensive, compact […]
