Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 25mm F1.8

The Olympus company has been enlarging its offer of Micro 4/3 lenses with impressive consequence. Although their line-up still lacks really fast models like f/1.4 aperture or better, the Premium series of high quality f/1.8-2.0 “primes” certainly...

Sigma 105 / 2,8 EX/DG/Macro/HSM/OS

CA (Chromatic Aberration) is very well controlled. Vignetting is minimal. Distortion is negligible. Although it has 8 aperture blades, bokeh (quality of OOF areas) is only OK (not as smooth as the Canon 100mm Macro for example).

Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40‑150mm 1:4.0‑5.6 R

Tamron 24-70mm

Tamron took a bold step in providing a lens with image stabilization in this category - perhaps sacrificing image sharpness to provide the hand-holding convenience. The question for the prospective shooter of this lens would be, do you value image...

Samsung 45mm F1.8 2D/3D NX (EX-S45ADW)

Samsung has made an intelligent play with the 45mm ƒ/1.8. 3D photography and videography is relatively new, and at the time of writing, it's not clear if it will take off or not.

Fujifilm Fujinon XF35mm F1.4 R

There's not much more to say that the test results don't already show: very good performance, even when used wide open, and excellent performance when stopped down just a little.

Lensbaby Edge 80 Optic

Muse owners may want to give the Edge 80 a pass, since it's just a little bit awkward to use with the push-pull focus and tilt system that it employs. But if you shoot with a Composer Pro, and are serious enough about Lensbaby photography to consider...

Pentax smc DA* 16-50mm F2.8 ED AL (IF) SDM

The 16-50mm is a full stop faster and a fraction sharper than the 17-70mm we tested last month. However, it feels noticeably more substantial in terms of handling and build quality, with a solid, weighty feel and impressive controls

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 24-70 mm f/2.8E ED VR

The history of fast, standard zoom lenses of the Nikon system aimed at advanced photojournalists can be dated from the Nikkor AF-S 28–70 mm f/2.8D IF-ED which appeared on the market in 1999 and was produced for eight years. The demands of digital full...

Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM

Conclusions The Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM is a solid zoom lens. It delivers crisper images than the 18-55mm that ships with many entry-level Rebel cameras, and more than doubles its zoom range. Its focus motor is more powerful than the...

Canon EF 17-40mm f/4.0L USM

The Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM is likely to be on your radar if you are considering an ultra-wide zoom for your D-SLR, but can't stomach the price of the EF 16-35mm lens. If you're willing to live with its shortcomings, it will get the job done. When...

The Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM is a great choice for anyone who wants to move beyond the 18-55mm kit lens, but doesn't want to sacrifice zoom range in exchange for a wider aperture. Its macro focus capability projects subjects onto your...

Sony DT 50mm f/1.8 SAM / SAL50F18

Construction of this 50mm Lens is definitely the bargain value meaning all plastic. Just giving the item a shake you can hear something inside has some play or maybe it's just the focus elements moving. Either way it has the reliability of plastic so...

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G is an excellent choice if you're a fan of the 35mm focal length, and its small size will help save some weight if you're carrying a huge full-frame D-SLR. It will pair well with a smaller body like the D610 or D7100....
