Canon PowerShot G7X III review so far

Panasonic Lumix S Pro 50mm f1.4 review so far

The Lumix S PRO 50mm f1.4 is a high-end prime lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras using the L-mount. 50mm is an ideal general-purpose length while the fast f1.4 focal ratio allows shallow depth-of-field effects. Leica’s optical design delivers excellent results, albeit at a correspondingly ambitious price. Check out my sample images and bokeh tests in my Lumix S PRO 50mm f1.4 review so far!…
