Sigma 135mm f1.8 Art review
  • Written by

The Sigma 135mm f1.8 ART is a mid-length telephoto lens with a bright aperture, available in Canon, Nikon or Sigma mounts. It’s corrected for full-frame DSLRs and works on Sony’s mirrorless bodies with an adapter. Find out why Thomas reckons it’s Sigma’s best ART lens to date in his in-depth review – one of the first published!…

Tamron’s SP 70-200mm f2.8 Di VC USD G2 is a 2.9x telephoto full-frame zoom available in Canon and Nikon DSLR mounts.

Sigma 85mm f1.4 Art review
  • Written by

The Sigma 85mm f1.5 Art is a short telephoto prime lens designed for full-frame bodies and available in Canon EF, Nikon and Sigma mounts. It’s a highly anticipated update to the previous 85mm f1.4 from Sigma and anyone following the Art series won’t be disappointed as Thomas declares it the best 85mm f1.4 with autofocus he’s tested!…

Tamron 150-600mm G2 review
  • Written by

The Tamron SP 150-600/5-6.3Di VC USD G2 (A022) is a nice upgrade of Tamron’s original 150-600/5-6.3 (A011) super-telephoto zoom. It has improved optics and weather sealing, effective image stabilization, and solid build. But its price tag puts it at the top of comparable 150-600mm zooms right there with the Sigma’s 150-600mm “Sports” and even above…

Samyang 135mm f2 review
  • Written by

The Samyang 135mm f2.0 ED UMC is a top-performing lens. It delivers beautiful-looking images with excellent contrast and sharpness on a high resolution full-frame camera, even with the aperture opened to f2.0. In addition it has the very low longitudinal CAs of an apochromatic lens and offers a beautiful background Bokeh. And this all at…

Canon EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L IS II USM

If you want a quality telephoto zoom with longer reach, consider the EF 100-400mm IS USM, now available in a Mark II edition. Compatible with both cropped and full-frame bodies (and delivering equivalent coverage up to 640mm on the former), it’s ideal for capturing distant action or wildlife. The ‘L’ build quality is superb and…

Canon EF 70-300mm f4-5.6L IS USM

Canon’s EF 70-300mm f4-5.6L IS USM brings L quality to this popular zoom range. You get tough build quality, quick and quiet USM autofocusing, full-time manual focusing, effective image stabilisation and great optical quality in a barrel that’s comfortably shorter (albeit fatter and heavier) than the EF 70-200mm f4L IS USM. It may not feature…

Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8L IS II USM

Canon’s EF 70-200mm f2.8L IS II USM is a professional workhorse for both cropped and full-frame bodies. Like the model above it enjoys USM focusing, Image Stabilisation and ‘L’ quality, but what makes it really special is the constant f2.8 aperture allowing faster exposures for action shots and delivering nice blurred backgrounds for portraits. This…
