The Sony SLT A99 II is the Japanese electronic giant’s latest full-frame, DSLR-style, interchangeable-lens camera. Packing a 42Mp backside-illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor, the A99 II offers a significant jump in resolution over its predecessor and achieves an impressive overall DxOMark score of 92 points. Benefiting from a pixel arrangement that increases the volume and quality of light captured by its imaging elements, a BSI sensor improves low-light image quality.
In addition to revamping the premium-quality Zeiss-branded Vario-Sonnar 16-35mm f2.8 ZA SSM, Sony took the opportunity to do the same with its 24-70mm f2.8 sibling. Read on to find out how well this updated lens performs.

One of the hottest launches from this year’s Photokina trade show, the Nikon D750, has grabbed the attention of serious amateurs and pros alike.

Sigma are well known for their accessibly priced models and at just under $1,100 the 150-500mm f5-6.3 APO seems like a promising alternative to the premium offerings from the camera makers. Although one of the older models in the firm’s range now, does it still have what it needs to compete with more modern rivals?
As an moderately priced full-frame high-speed standard zoom, the Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 seems like a promising option to the far pricier offerings from the camera makers. Read on to find out how well it performs.
As the lower pixel count of the two full-frame A series mirrorless models from the firm the Sony A7 has been somewhat overshadowed by its pricier sibling. But with a less demanding 24-Mpix sensor and on-chip phase detection AF, the A7 sounds promising for legacy glass as well as offering faster focusing with the existing E and new FE mount lenses. Read on to find out how this intriguing new model performs.
