Sigma is one of the few manufacturers who produces AF lenses for Sony E-mount cameras. The 30mm F2.8 DN Art is a compact prime for Sony APS-C cameras. It has been on the market for a while, but is still one of the most popular lenses due to the combination of high image quality and reasonable price.
The Sony 100-400mm GM is a super telephoto lens for full frame E-mount cameras and currently the longest native zoom lens available for this system. GM is short for G Master, Sony’s premium lens line. So is it just an expensive piece of glass or a masterpiece? Let’s find out if Sony is able to match the expectations.
A short review of the Sony Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 2,8/35 ZA (SEL-35F28Z ) prime lens for Sony full frame mirrorless cameras.
This is a first impression review of the Tamron AF 100-400mm F4.5-6.3 Di VC USD telephoto lens, adapted to the Sony A7 III with the MC-11 adapter.
The Tamron AF 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD is a new lens for Sony E mount cameras. Not only is it the first zoom lens for E mount from a third party manufacturer, it is also a completely new design exclusive for mirrorless full frame cameras.
The Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM is an inexpensive telephoto prime lens for full frame cameras. It has been on the market for quite a while, a little over 20 years to be more precise. Can it still convince in terms of optical performance on a modern, high resolution camera? I have tested this lens with the Sigma MC-11 adapter on the Sony A7 III.
With the FíRIN 20mm F2 FE MF, Tokina offers a very interesting wide angle prime lens for the Sony E-mount system. The lens has been specifically designed for full frame mirrorless cameras and is therefore relatively compact and lightweight compared to traditional DSLR lenses in this category.
This is a review of the Olympus 25mm F1.8 prime lens for the Micro Four Thirds system.
There are many things that can be wrong with a photographic lens. Optics require tight manufacturing tolerances in order to produce high resolution images. Copy to copy variation is a serious issue, even (or especially?) nowadays. While most lenses leave the factory in good condition, a non-negligible percentage reaches the market with unacceptable optical flaws. One of the most common issues is decentering.
Since this happend to me a few times already, I decided to write a short article about it. I will first explain what decentering means and then continue with a simple procedure on how to test a lens.
The Zeiss Batis 2.8/18 is an ultra-wide angle lens for full frame Sony E-Mount cameras. I had the pleasure to try this lens and am happy to share my initial impression in the following review.
