Review: Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar T*

The Zeiss name has been synonymous with high-end optics for a century.  In the past 30 years, they’ve become known for creating lenses with beautiful color and contrast and biting sharpness.  This legacy continues with the Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Sonnar T* for Sony E-Mount.  Zeiss and Sony have long held a partnership in the …

Review: Sony A7R II

Sony has been quite busy the past two years in fleshing out what is still the only full-frame mirrorless camera system.  The latest addition to this growing set of the cameras is the impressively specified A7R II.  The A7R II follows up the very successful A7R by giving it the same upgraded body style that …

Review: Olympus M.Zuiko 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO

The Olympus 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO adds the ultra-wide angle range to the PRO line of f/2.8 zoom lenses recently introduced by Olympus for the Micro 4/3 system.  The 7-14mm f/2.8 is a faster and supposedly superior optic to Panasonic’s excellent 7-14mm f/4 lens that has been a staple of the Micro 4/3 system for many …

Review: Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Biogon T*

Zeiss has an interesting strategy when it comes to the Sony FE mount. There are three lines of Zeiss lenses.  The first, is a joint venture with Sony to co-design native lenses such as the FE 16-35mm f/4 and FE 55mm f/1.8.  Then there’s Zeiss’ autofocus Batis line, and finally the small manual focus Loxia …

Fuji’s hard work at fleshing out their X series lineup continues at a frantic pace.  Today I review the brand new XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR, a lens that has the field of view of the classic 135mm long-portrait lens that has been a staple of many systems over the years. The 90mm f/2 …

Review: Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS

Sony has been heavily concentrating on fleshing out the full frame E-mount system with quality lenses, which is something that they didn’t really do with their APS-C e-mount lineup. As such, less than two years after the introduction of the A7, the FE lineup has grown into a rather full featured system.  Today, I review …

Review: Fujifilm X-T10

The new Fujifilm X-T10

The Fujifilm X-T10 follows the tremendous success Fuji had with the first camera in the X-T series, the X-T1.  The X-T1 has been the X-Series flagship for a bit more than a year, and the X-T10 provides a lot of what made the X-T1 great in a smaller and much more affordable package. The X-T10 …

Review: Sony FE 28mm f/2

Sony’s full frame FE lens lineup is somewhat small, but expanding quite rapidly. While Sony has done a nice job of filling in the gaps of the lineup, one of the downsides to the FE lens lineup has been the relatively high cost of almost all the lenses.  That changes with the addition of the …
