Our technicians have tested no fewer than 130 lenses on Canon’s 50.6Mp EOS 5DS R Digital SLR. With the results for both prime and zoom lenses covering a diverse range of focal lengths, we’ve got all the data you need for picking out the right lens. In Part 1 of our three-part review, we bring you the analyzed and verified scores for standard zoom lenses as well as 35mm, 50mm and 85mm primes on the Canon EOS 5DS R.
As an equivalent to a 28-300mm, this mark II version is an update to the earlier retro-looking model by the same name. It features the darkened chrome cosmetics and finely-machined zoom and focus rings of the maker’s pro-oriented models, and now includes dust- and splash-proofing and new coatings. Read on to find out how well this new model performs.
Another Sony lens that’s not new, exactly, but one we’ve been asked in our forums to review is the Sony E PZ 18-105mm F4 G OSS. Featuring the maker’s G moniker indicating high-end construction, this stabilized 28-164mm equivalent has been designed for the maker’s APS-C format mirrorless models and is an intriguing addition to the lineup. Read on to find out how well this model performs.
This camera is the follow-up to the EM-10 from 2014 and features a similar 16-Mpix Live MOS sensor, but gains a similar (but not identical) 5-axis body stabilization system that helped make the upper-level OM-D models so popular. Read on to find out how well the sensor for this model performs.
As an 24-105mm equivalent, this model features a constant f/4 maximum aperture, four-stop optical stabilizer in a compact design boasting no fewer than four aspherical lens elements, a Zeiss badge, and a $1,000 price tag to match. Read on to find out how well this model performs.
Early in the year Canon updated its high-speed 35mm f/1.4 L series prime, which is the first revamp of this model since the original was introduced in 1998. Read on to find out how well this new lens performs.
Designed exclusively for Sony E-mount cameras and the full-frame A7 series models in particular, the Zeiss Loxia 2/50 (50mm f/2), like the Otus ZF models, deliberately avoids AF in favor of a mix of manual mechanical controls and electronic data transfer. Read on to find out how well this lens performs.
After releasing high-speed 35mm and 24mm primes, Sigma has turned its attention to more moderate f/2-speed models. But rather than competing head-on with fixed focal length models, the company has introduced a high-grade f/2 zoom instead. Read on to find out how well this intriguing model performs.
