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: 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: Sony FE 85mm f/1.8

The Sony full-frame E-Mount lens lineup is beginning to get crowded at the 85mm focal length, but Sony’s latest entry, the FE 85mm f/1.8, is the first to come in at a relatively affordable price: $598.  The lens joins the existing Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 ($1199), the Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 ($1399) and the Sony …

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 50mm f/2 R WR

Today’s review: the new Fuji 50mm f/2 R WR. This is the third lens in Fuji’s new compact f/2 prime series, joining the 23mm f/2 and 35mm f/2.  All three of these lenses offer slower apertures than similar faster primes in the Fuji lineup, but Fujifilm has maintained high optical quality with these slower lenses, …

Review: Fujifilm X-T2

Fujifilm, after having been stuck with more or less the same sensor for around 4 years, has been updating their rather robust lineup with the new 24 Megapixel X-Trans III sensor.  First up was last winter’s long-awaited X-Pro2, and then this past summer, Fuji moved to update their extremely popular X-T1 with the new X-T2. …

Review: Fujifilm X-Pro 2

After four long years, it’s finally here: the Fuji X-Pro 2.  Fuji fans have been waiting for an update to the original X-Series interchangeable lens camera for a long time, and Fuji has seen fit to update quite a bit with this new rangefinder-styled flagship.  While the exterior of the camera looks very similar to …
