Review: Voigtländer 40mm f/1.2 Nokton

Voigtländer has been steadily releasing a rather full complement of lenses for the Sony E-Mount, from their ultra-wide 10mm and 12mm offerings, to the classic rendering 35mm f/1.4 to extremely high-end macro lenses like the 65mm f/2 and the new 110mm f/2.5.  Today we’re looking at one of their newer designs, the Voigtländer 40mm f/1.2 …

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 …

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 80mm f/2.8 Macro R LM OIS WR

Fujifilm has developed an exceptionally robust lens lineup over the last several years, but the one area that had been lacking was in a true 1:1 macro lens.  Fuji remedies this with their 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro, a lens with a slightly longer field of view than many macros, 1:1 magnification, an …

Review: Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM (Canon EF Mount) + MC-11

I don’t generally do reviews of Canon EF lenses, as I’ve been shooting mirrorless exclusively for the past 7 years.  However, with the availability of EF to E-mount adapters, and the Sony system still being a little thin in some areas, there are Canon mount lenses that may potentially be great alternatives for use on …

Review: Sony A7 III

The Sony A7 full-frame mirrorless system has now been around for 4.5 years, and while the original A7 was replaced after just a year on the shelf, the A7 II has had much greater staying power. That model was announced in November of 2014, and has enjoyed a nice stay as the ‘basic model’ in …

Mini-Review: Canon Powershot G7 X Mark II

Today I’m taking a quick look at a high-end compact camera. I recently went on vacation with my family to Orlando, Florida, to spend some time taking in the parks at Disney World and Universal Studios. Since this was a family vacation, and not a photographic journey, I didn’t want to carry anything even remotely …

Review: Voigtländer 35mm f/1.4 Nokton Classic (E-Mount)

As modern lenses become sharper, with fewer lens aberrations, one byproduct has been the explosion of lens size.  These highly corrected optics require more and more elements, made with special glass types and molding processes.  This is highly evident in the extremely large and heavy Sony/Zeiss FE 35mm f/1.4 and other recent full-frame f/1.4 wide …

Review: Sony A9

I’m finally getting around to writing my review of the Sony A9.  This is going to be a little different from my normal reviews, and is not going to be quite as in-depth as I typically like, as I didn’t get to shoot with it quite as extensively as I often get to with cameras.  …
