Fujifilm 35 mm / F 1,4 XF R

Conclusions An f/1.4 lens is always appealing for photographers who like to capture images in dim light or with a very shallow depth of field. The Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm F1.4 R hits those notes, and it delivers images that are crisp through most of...

Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM C for Nikon

The 150-600mm Sports is an excellent lens. While larger and heavier than its contemporary (no pun intended), it offers incredible value for the price. This is a telephoto superzoom made for experienced photographers, that offers long range without...

Olympus Zuiko Digital 25mm 1:2.8 Pancake

The Olympus Zuiko Digital 25mm F2.8 Pancake is an idiosyncratic little lens with its own unique 'personality', and therefore really rather difficult to categorize. Unusually for a Zuiko, we're not exactly shouting from the rooftops about its optical...

35 mm Nikon F75

The F75 provides an affordable route into the world of Nikon SLR photography, while offering truly advanced features such as a new 25-segment 3D Matrix Metering system, auto focus sensitive to speed and distance, and accurate flash exposure metering....

Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 EX DG OS APO HSM

Sigma has an enviable corner on the f/2.8 long telezoom market: Its massive 200–500mm and more manageable 120–300mm full-framers are the sole occupants of the niche. Now, Sigma has upgraded the latter, adding image stabilization to this pro's 70–200mm...

Tamron SP AF 180mm f/3.5 Di LD IF Macro

I hope to find time to complete a Tamron 180mm f/3.5 Di Macro Lens review at some point in the future. For now, please enjoy the standardized test results available for this lens.

Panasonic Lumix G 20mm F1.7 II ASPH for Micro 4/3

I use this lens when travelling with a one body, one lens combo, as it's fast, reliable, and I find the 40mm (equivalent) focal length a great halfway between a wide angle and portrait lens. I have seen some minor CA around the edges on high contrast...

Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmar 100-400mm F4.0-6.3 ASPH Power OIS

When mirrorless systems were launched on the market they usually featured standard kit lenses or classic primes. As the time passed their offers have been enlarged but only now, after several years of their market presence, they include also more...

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.8G

I bought this lens to replace the 24mm 2.8 nikon and I am very pleased I did. Although not quite as lightweight, it is still light and nicely balanced. It focusses quickly, is very sharp and has wonderful colour rendition. It is prefect for travel,...

Pentax smc FA 43 mm f/1.9 Limited

Conclusions The Pentax SMC FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited is just as much a gem today as it was when it was introduced nearly two decades ago. It's small, light, nicely built, and, most importantly, deadly sharp. You don't expect such a compact lens to capture...

The market for 3CCD prosumer cameras is heating up thanks to the recent introduction of Panasonic's AG-DVC30. These types of cameras are a complete blend of the consumer and professional worlds. By trying to serve the needs of both they occasionally...

Sigma 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM | C

The Sigma 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM lens trades some optical quality for a compact design, low cost, and long zoom range.

Sigma 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM for Sony A

The Sigma Art 85mm f/1.4 is capable of producing beautiful images. While the metal construction makes it taller and the 14-element design makes it longer, the lens is only a beast in terms of size and weight. If you can handle it, it performs...

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm F2.8E ED VR

Conclusions The 24-70mm lens is the go-to zoom for most event and wedding photographers. It covers a wide angle for scene-setting shots, or for those times when you're close to the action and want to fill the frame. Zooming in turns it into a short...

Pentax 150

Conclusions The Pentax HD D FA 150-450mm F4.5-5.6 ED DC AW is a big beast of a telephoto lens that doesn't cover as long of a range as you'd expect by looking at it. It's heavy, but that's in no short part due to its exceptionally sturdy build quality....

Canon EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM

The Canon EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM ($599.99) may be a budget lens when compared with the company's line of L lenses that are often paired with full-frame Canon cameras, but it's a quality zoom nonetheless. It doesn't offer fixed wide aperture of...

Fujifilm Fujinon XC 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS

The Fujifilm Fujinon XC 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS is a solid option for Fuji shooters looking for a basic zoom lens, but the more expensive 18-55mm is a better choice.

Panasonic 35-100mm f/4-5.6 MEGA OIS LUMIX G X VARIO

Optically, the Panasonic 35-100mm Mega O.I.S. Lumix G X Vario is very good for the price - there are some very slight issues with corner softness and de-centering with our review copy, but nothing to write home about.

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G

If you're in the market for a 50mm prime for your Nikon SLR, the standard version of the 50mm f/1.8G is a solid choice; we awarded it a four-star rating. This lens is the same product at a higher price, so we're rating it just a bit lower. If you buy...
