Review: Fujifilm XF10

Fujifilm’s X Series has become a fairly nice success for the company, with the interchangeable lens camera system continuing to grow and improve.

Review: Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD (Sony E-Mount)

As the full-frame Sony E-Mount system matures, the available lens selection has continued to grow year after year. While Sony and Zeiss have created a wide variety of lenses from 12mm through 400mm, third-party lens makers have yet to fully embrace the system, save perhaps for Voigtlander, which has released a fair few lenses for …
