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.
We’ve tested 130 lenses on Canon’s flagship camera, the full-frame 18-Mpix Canon EOS-1D X Mk II, covering focal lengths ranging from an incredibly wide 11mm up to a super-telephoto 600mm.
We’ve split the results between primes and zooms and then arranged them into three groups according to use. This equates to ultra-wide and wide-angle, standard, and telephoto to help you narrow down the best performer in each.
However, this time we’ve compared lenses from the perspective of the camera’s intended market — the photojournalist. While they’re not really any different from the next photographer when it comes to choosing focal length, there are some models that perhaps require further consideration.
In the third and final installment of our Best Lenses for the Canon EOS 5DS R review, we’re taking a closer look at results for wide-angle and macro lenses. For wide-angles, we’ve sub-divided the lenses into ultra-wide-angle primes between 14 and18mm, standard wide-angle primes between 20 and 28mm, and wide-angle zoom lenses that cover all of those focal lengths and more. To wrap things up for this series, our Macro section considers close-focus prime lenses with focal lengths between 90 and 180mm.
Launched side-by-side, the EOS 760D and EOS 750D (a.k.a. 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 lab tests, along with a wide range of native and third-party Canon-mount lenses. Read on to find out how these models perform.
In Part 2 of “Best lenses for the EOS 7D Mark II,” we’re looking at the performance of primes on Canon’s flagship APS-C sensor.We’ve analyzed over 300 fixed-focal-length lenses on the EOS 7D Mark II, including own-brand Canon EF and EF-S lenses that are designed specifically for use on the Canon APS-C sensor. Covering a range of third-party alternatives as well, our comprehensive analysis will help you pick out a prime, whatever your photographic needs.
Samyang is earning a reputation for good quality yet sensitively priced, high-speed full-frame manual focus primes. Can this new APS-C only 24mm equivalent model offer similar value and optical quality? Read on to find out.
Following on from the lens recommendations for the earlier full-frame Nikon D600, we’ve now had the opportunity to assess a wide range lenses with that model’s replacement, the 24-Mpix D610. We’ve analyzed a total of 95 Nikkor and third-party prime and zoom models with the D610 to assess image quality, and we’ve come across some unexpected results. Read on to find out more about that and which lenses perform best when paired with the camera.
In the lead up to Photokina 2012, Canon announced the new Canon EOS 6D full-frame entry-point model within days of Nikon publicizing their most-affordable full-frame camera to date, the 24-Mpix D600. While the EOS 6D boasted some attention grabbing features including built-in WiFi and GPS and slightly undercut the Nikon on price, it couldn’t match its rival in one or two key areas, namely the less populated AF system and lower resolution sensor.
The second in our series of selecting the best-quality lenses for your camera concentrates on one of the most highly-anticipated cameras of our time, the successor to the hugely popular EOS 5D Mark II. But by the time it was announced, in early March, it’s probably fair to say Nikon had taken fair amount of interest away by announcing the 36M-Pix D800 and D800E models the month before. Be that as it may, there’s no denying the 22.3 M-Pix EOS 5D Mark III is a remarkably capable camera, and a formidable rival to the Nikon.
There is a very particular look available to photographers who have a ‘Super-Wide-angle’ lens in their gadget bag, a ‘look’ that puts a whole new perspective on things. To get it you really need something quite extreme. Nikon do it, Canon do it, indeed most of the camera makers do it, but so do some of the independent lens makers. Of these who does it best? And do you get what you pay for?
