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.
Launched side-by-side, the EOS 760D and EOS 750D (aka T6s and T6i in North America, respectively) share a lot in common, including the same high-resolution 24.2-Mpix APS-C CMOS sensor complete with Canon’s Hybrid CMOS AF III for fast and accurate focusing. We’ve put the two models through our labs coupled with a wide range of native and third-party Canon-mount lenses. Read on to find out how these models perform.
The EOS 7D Mark II is Canon’s flagship APS-C sensor DSLR, boasting a 20Mp resolution and a host of high-end features. It’s a popular choice for many serious enthusiasts and semi-pro photographers, so we’ve tested over 300 lenses on it to help you pick out the best one for you. In this first part of a two-part review, we round up the best zoom lenses for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II.
Designed specifically for use on smaller APS-C sensor DSLRs, the new EF-S 24mm is a wide-angle pancake prime featuring Canon’s STM step autofocus motor for smooth video capture. At just $149, it looks like a “no-brainer” for Canon APS-C video shooters, but how does it compare optically against a vast range of other options available? We dissect the DxOMark Lens Metric Scores to find out.
Introduced alongside the firm’s new top-of-the-range OM-D E-M1 model, this new pro-grade standard zoom is the long awaited rival to Panasonic’s constant aperture G X Vario 12-35mm f2.8 ASPH model. Read on to find out how well it performs.
After the runaway success of the full-frame 35mm f/1.4, Sigma is taking the initiative with this new ultra-high speed, pro-level standard zoom designed for APS-C format cameras. The specification is particularly promising, but does it mean the end of fixed focal lenses for APS-C? Read on to see how well this cutting-edge model performs in our labs.
For many people an introduction to photography is through a compact camera: usually, these days, one with a zoom lens covering medium-wide through to short telephoto. The next step is often an SLR and the “standard” zoom, covering the same range. The quality of this “standard” zoom can be the difference between great results and disappointment, so the choice is important. This Sigma 17-70 f2.8-70 f2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM C Canon is both good and versatile, no disappointment here.
