To provide photographers with a broader perspective about mobiles, lenses and cameras, here are links to articles, reviews, and analyses of photographic equipment produced by DxOMark, renown websites, magazines or blogs.
In the third and final installment of our Best Lenses for the Canon EOS 5DS R review, we’re taking a closer look at results for wide-angle and macro lenses. For wide-angles, we’ve sub-divided the lenses into ultra-wide-angle primes between 14 and18mm, standard wide-angle primes between 20 and 28mm, and wide-angle zoom lenses that cover all of those focal lengths and more. To wrap things up for this series, our Macro section considers close-focus prime lenses with focal lengths between 90 and 180mm.
In Part 2 of “Best lenses for the EOS 7D Mark II,” we’re looking at the performance of primes on Canon’s flagship APS-C sensor.We’ve analyzed over 300 fixed-focal-length lenses on the EOS 7D Mark II, including own-brand Canon EF and EF-S lenses that are designed specifically for use on the Canon APS-C sensor. Covering a range of third-party alternatives as well, our comprehensive analysis will help you pick out a prime, whatever your photographic needs.
16 years on from its launch the Canon EF 135mm f/2L prime is still going strong and available to buy brand new today. With a wide maximum aperture, useful telephoto focal length and good build quality it offers some attractive features. Costing $1,000 however it’s at the expensive end of the range for a standard telephoto prime. So with newer, fresher and cheaper competition coming on to the market all the time is this old-timer still relevant?
The Tamron SP AF 180mm f/3.5 Di LD (IF) Macro 1:1 Canon would make an ideal lens companion for nature and wildlife photographers who are on a budget. Affordable and lightweight, the lens excels in many of DxOMark’s image quality tests, but it is also tripped up in one important category.
