Review: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 DC DN (Sony E-Mount)

A few years back, Sigma made some waves with the release of three very affordable, but moderate aperture prime lenses for mirrorless cameras. The Sigma 19mm f/2.8, 30mm f/2.8 and 60mm f/2.8 are still among the very best values in the mirrorless world, providing very high quality optics at a fraction of the price of …

Review: Olympus Pen-F

It’s been almost seven years since Olympus entered the Micro 4/3 market with the Olympus Pen E-P1.  The Pen name harkened back to Olympus’ half frame line of film cameras that began in 1959.

Review: Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS

Today I’m taking a look at one of the first FE lenses released for the system, the FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS.  Until the recent announcement of the new G Master 70-200mm f/2.8, this lens was the only option for a native telephoto zoom lens for full-frame E-Mount.  It fills the classic telephoto zoom range …

Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS vs. Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L

Today, I’m taking a quick look at two telephoto zoom lenses: the Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 G OSS and the Canon 70-200mm f/4L, and how they compare on the Sony A7 II.  These two lenses may seem like odd things to compare, given that one lens is a native Sony E-mount zoom, while the other …

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR

Fujifilm continues the fleshing out of their already impressive lens lineup with their first supertelephoto offering: the Fujinon XF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR.  This telephoto zoom has an angle of view similar to a 150-600mm lens on a full-frame camera, providing some serious reach for the Fuji X-Series cameras.  The $1,899 asking price …
