There are new additions to the DxOMark Samyang lens database with these two 14mm lenses.
See the whole measurements with the Canon mount: Samyang 14mm F2.8 IF ED MC Aspherical, Canon, the Nikon mount tests are available too. Once again Samyang provides us with a wide angle prime with an attractive set of features for a very competitive price.
The new entry level Canon kit lens has been tested by DxOMark and the results are now available. You will also find the complete measurements for the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f3.5 5.6 IS II and in conjunction with cameras such as: Canon EOS 7D, Canon EOS 50D or the older Canon EOS 20D.
The Nikon D5100 replaces the D5000 in Nikon’s lineup; it finds its place right below the Nikon D7000, according to Nikon’s marketing the D90 is still positioned between the D5100 and the D7000, however the spec sheet and the performances of the D5100 make this hard to believe.
This is because the D5100 shares the same Sony 16 megapixels sensor as the D7000. The major difference between the two bodies being the AF: 11 points with 3D tracking for the D5100 (presumably the “old” MultiCam 1000 already used on the D90) versus the 39 points with 3D tracking now used on the D7000.

As you well know, DxOMark, the world leader in image quality analysis conducts scientific and independent testing on the latest camera sensor technology available. This time around we have Fujifilm's latest creation; the FinePix X100 an APS-C camera with an impressive array of features, and one of the most awaited products in its category.

Carl Zeiss is one of those almost mythical lens makers. Focusing on quality, its lenses almost always rely on complex optical formulas. Their price reflects this involvement in quality, and logically Zeiss lenses are on the same shelves as the very high-end Canon or Nikon models. We have tested 14 of them so far, ranging from the ultra-wide-angle Distagon T18mm f/3.5 to the much heavier Makro Planar T100mm f/2.
The study of this group of 14 Zeiss lenses is interesting in many aspects. One of the questions arising after such an analysis is more than obvious: is high-end always the best choice? Zeiss is an interesting case since the company only produces high-end, expensive lenses. This positioning is completely justified by a superb build quality.
The EOS 1100D (Rebel T3) replaces the EOS 1000 as Canon’s entry-level body. It combines a 12-megapixel sensor, Canon’s 9-point AF engine coupled to the 63-zone metering system introduced by the EOS7D, and of course the now-standard Digic 4 image processor.
The EOS 600D looks much like the EOS 550D, which, however, it does not replace. Both bodies will remain in Canon’s lineup. The 600D utilizes most of the 550D’s hardware features, including its 18-megapixel sensor; it adds an articulated screen, along with the “beginners” functions and creative filters first seen on the EOS 60D.

But don't take my word for it, don't be swayed by pixel peepers on forums, instead check out the camera sensor tests at DxOMark to verify this. As you can see, they all share the exact same overall score, and show very similar performance... Read the article.
