A superzoom option that offers wide-angle through to long telephoto in a single lens, the FE 24-240mm is a versatile option for those occasions when changing lenses is going to be a pain. Good DxOMark scores are rare for superzooms, though, so let’s see how the Sony does.</paragraph></section> Friday 22 May 2015 00:00:01 GMT HTC One M9 Review: M8's successor on DxOMark /Mobiles/HTC-One-M9-Review-M8-s-successor-on-DxOMark#8147 <img src="http://cdn.dxomark.com/var/ezwebin_site/storage/images/mobiles/htc-one-m9-review-m8-s-successor-on-dxomark/116868-1-eng-US/HTC-One-M9-Review-M8-s-successor-on-DxOMark_small.jpg"> <p><?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <section xmlns:image="http://ez.no/namespaces/ezpublish3/image/" xmlns:xhtml="http://ez.no/namespaces/ezpublish3/xhtml/" xmlns:custom="http://ez.no/namespaces/ezpublish3/custom/"><paragraph>Announced in March 2015, the One M9 is the latest update for the HTC One series, replacing the highly-respected One M8. It’s more evolutionary than revolutionary, though, with a design that looks very much like its predecessor. It does feature an updated camera module with a 20 megapixel resolution, so we’d hoped for an improved showing in our industry standard lab tests.</paragraph><paragraph>However, the One M9 achieved the same DxOMark Mobile score as the M8, putting it outside the top 20 in the rankings....</paragraph></section> Monday 11 May 2015 00:00:01 GMT Sony Carl Zeiss Distagon T* FE 35mm f1.4 ZA lens review: Razor-sharp German precision /Reviews/Sony-Carl-Zeiss-Distagon-T-FE-35mm-f1.4-ZA-lens-review-Razor-sharp-German-precision#8110 <img src="http://cdn.dxomark.com/var/ezwebin_site/storage/images/reviews/sony-carl-zeiss-distagon-t-fe-35mm-f1.4-za-lens-review-razor-sharp-german-precision/116610-1-eng-US/Sony-Carl-Zeiss-Distagon-T-FE-35mm-f1.4-ZA-lens-review-Razor-sharp-German-precision_small.jpg"> <p><?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <section xmlns:image="http://ez.no/namespaces/ezpublish3/image/" xmlns:xhtml="http://ez.no/namespaces/ezpublish3/xhtml/" xmlns:custom="http://ez.no/namespaces/ezpublish3/custom/"><paragraph>We continue our optical analysis of Sony’s latest FE-mount lenses, this time examining the performance of the $1598 Sony Carl Zeiss Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA. A professional-grade “fast” aperture wide-angle prime, the new lens is specifically designed for use on <link target="_blank" node_id="5047">Sony A7</link> hybrid cameras.

With only a modest number of FE lenses available until now, the new lenses — including two wide-angle primes, two ultra-wide angle converters, a close-focus macro and versatile superzoom — open up more possibilities on Sony full-frame hybrids. They’ve kept us busy in the lab, too, and the scores are in and verified for the FE 28mm F2.</paragraph></section> Monday 27 April 2015 00:00:01 GMT Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge review: Top-ranking Smartphone has the Edge /Mobiles/Samsung-Galaxy-S6-Edge-review-Top-ranking-Smartphone-has-the-Edge#8022 <img src="http://cdn.dxomark.com/var/ezwebin_site/storage/images/mobiles/samsung-galaxy-s6-edge-review-top-ranking-smartphone-has-the-edge/115956-20-eng-US/Samsung-Galaxy-S6-Edge-review-Top-ranking-Smartphone-has-the-Edge_small.jpg"> <p><?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <section xmlns:image="http://ez.no/namespaces/ezpublish3/image/" xmlns:xhtml="http://ez.no/namespaces/ezpublish3/xhtml/" xmlns:custom="http://ez.no/namespaces/ezpublish3/custom/"><paragraph>Achieving outstanding scores in DxOMark Mobile industry standard tests, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge becomes the new top-ranked device in our database.
