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 …

Review: Sony 21mm Ultra-Wide Conversion Lens (SEL075UWC)

Alongside the new FE 28mm f/2, Sony released two conversion lenses that attach to the 28mm and turn the combination into a 21mm ultra-wide lens and a 16mm fisheye lens.  Today, I’m reviewing the 21mm ultra-wide conversion lens, otherwise known as the SEL075UWC.  The 21mm conversion lens attaches to the front of the FE 28mm …

Review: Panasonic Lumix 35-100mm f/4-5.6 OIS

This past fall, Panasonic made several announcements in advance of Photokina, but one that flew under the radar a bit was the addition of a very compact 35-100mm f/4-5.6 lens.

In late 2013, Olympus released the M.Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO lens.  It was their first foray into the ‘PRO’ line, which has now been joined by the 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO and will soon add a 7-14mm and a 300mm f/4.  I didn’t get a chance to review the 12-40mm back when it was released, but …

Review: Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II

It’s been three years since Olympus first rolled out their highly successful OM-D line of cameras with the E-M5.  That camera redefined what a mirrorless camera could be, and was the first mirrorless camera that truly made a push for the enthusiast photographer.  Since then, the exceptional E-M1 has followed as well as a lower …
