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.
Nikon’s latest flagship FX-mount, full-frame DSLR — the D5 — is a performance powerhouse, featuring a new 153-point autofocus system and 12 fps burst shooting of up to 200 14-bit RAW files. Designed for the traditional customer base of sports, press and wildlife pros demanding top performance, the D5’s increased 20.8Mp resolution and enhanced low-light capabilities has further broadened the D5’s appeal. As well as boasting enough pixels for advertising, magazine, and even landscape photography, the D5’s image quality improvements at the mid-ISO 1600–12,800 range will interest a range of professionals looking for great results in low light.
In Part 2 of “Best lenses for the Nikon D750” we’re looking at the performance of primes on Nikon’s latest full-frame DSLR. We’ve analyzed over 60 fixed-focal-length lenses on the D750, including Nikon’s own Nikkor brand and third-party alternatives. Covering focal lengths from 14mm through to 600mm, the scores include some of the best results our technicians have ever recorded.
The $499 Ultron 40mm f2 SL II Aspherical is a standard focal length prime from legendary Viennese manufacturer Voigtlander. Despite its tiny proportions it promises to deliver excellent image quality scores in our industry standard lab tests. With the lab data in, recorded and verified our in-depth review analyses the results.
Nikon has revamped its popular full-frame AF Nikkor 35mm f2D model replacing it with this completely redesigned 11-element G-series ED version. Read on to find out how well this promising new model performs.
Street photography is an appealing genre for many photographers, and has become increasingly popular in recent years thanks to the proliferation of small high quality digital cameras and lenses. We’ve put together a concise round up of moderate wide-angle and telephoto lenses from each of the major camera systems. Read on to see which of the models we’ve chosen and what to expect from them in terms of image quality.
After years of unadventurous, unexciting “slow” speed zooms “fast”, high-quality primes are experiencing a comeback thanks to the popularity of full-frame DSLRs and the merging of video capture. The moderately wide 35mm focal length has seen numerous new versions from most lens makers over the last two years or so, including this ultra-high speed offering from Sigma. Read on to see how well this lens fares on the highest resolution DSLR currently available.
Here is a new series featuring the results of Pentax prime lenses mounted on the compatible camera with the best resolution thus far, the Pentax K5. (But as usual, you can consult DxOMark to see the results for these lenses when mounted on other compatible camera bodies, such as the Pentax K7 or Km.)
DxOMark continues its study of Nikon’s vintage AF-D Nikkor series, this time focusing on the 35mm f/2.
Photographers enjoy shooting with this lens because of its versatility and its very light weight. Mounted on a full-frame camera, this wide-angle’s field of view is the equivalent of a 53mm lens mounted on a Nikon APS-C (such as the D7000).
“Nikonists” still highly appreciate the AF-D-series lenses, all of which appeared in 1994. (Nikon usually adds the “D” after the aperture, as in “50mm f/1.4D AF,” rather than “50mm f/1.4 AF-D,” but both refer to the same lenses.)
