Sigma 12-24mm f4 Art review
  • Written by

The new Sigma Art AF 12-24/4.0 DG HSM is a worthy successor to Sigma’s AF 12-24mm 4.5-5.6 II DG HSM model from 2011. Optical performance is very good and other aspects of the lens are also improved: The focal ratio is now a constant f4.0, AF is faster, and you get compatibility with Sigma’s USB dock to fine tune…

Zeiss Otus 28mm f1.4 review
  • Written by

The Zeiss 28mm f1.4 Otus is a unique lens. It is the only current f1.4 28mm lens for full-frame bodies and it delivers beautiful-looking images and superb quality across the board, even with the aperture opened to f1.4. This performance coupled with the tank-like build-quality and new design support Zeiss’ claim to have developed and…

Sigma 20mm f1.4 Art review
  • Written by

The Sigma 20mm f1.4 DG HSM Art is a one-of-a-kind lens: It simply is the widest full-frame f1.4 lens around and it also delivers very good image quality.

Sigma 24mm f1.4 Art review
  • Written by

The Sigma 24mm f1.4 DG HSM Art is a very compelling addition to large aperture wide-angle lenses: it combines very good performance overall with Sigma’s build-quality of the “Art” series. In optical performance this lens has only two flaws: It has some field curvature and a dip in resolution at the DX-corner but that does…

Tamron 35mm f1.8 VC review
  • Written by

The Tamron SP 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD is a very interesting addition to large aperture wide-angle lenses: it combines very good performance overall with image-stabilization that adds two stops of hand-hold-ability (in my tests) to its already bright f1.8 aperture. With this lens you can shoot under low-light conditions hand-held that you could not…

Nikon 16-35mm f4G VR review
  • Written by

The AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm f/4.0G ED VR is the gold-ringed sister to Nikon’s 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED. It’s an ultra-wide angle zoom lens that’s compatible with Nikon’s full-frame FX format DSLRs and was announced in 2010. It also works on cropped-frame DX format models, where it becomes equivalent to a 24-53mm zoom. Interestingly for a wide-angle…
