Review: Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art (Sony E Mount)

Sigma has recently jumped into the full-frame E-Mount system by creating new native E-Mount versions of many of their very well received Art series lenses. Today I’m looking at one of those well regarded lenses, the Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG Art for Sony E-Mount. The Sigma 135mm f/1.8 is a monster of a lens, with …

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. However, Fujifilm’s digital renaissance really began with the X100, a relatively compact prime-lens compact with an APS-C sensor. That camera’s legacy lives on with the X100F, but Fujifilm continues to experiment with …

Review: Think Tank Retrospective 30 v2.0

As photographic companies are concerned, Think Tank is fairly young. The company was founded in 2005 and quickly rose to be one of the premier camera bag manufacturers. Taking on established companies like LowePro and Domke, they created products that have generally been well received. They recently revised their quite popular Retrospective line of bags, …

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 …
