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.
Announced in September 2016, the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM A (Sigma 12-24mm f/4 A) is a wide-angle zoom for full-frame DSLRs available in Nikon, Canon, and Sigma lens mounts. This review considers the performance of the Nikon-mount version. Sitting in Sigma’s high-end lineup of “Art” lenses, the $1499 Sigma 12-24mm f/4 A offers an advanced optical construction with 16 elements, including 3 aspherical; 2 super-low dispersion (SLD); and 2 new “F” low dispersion (FLD), which are engineered to offer similar performance to the fluorite elements now included in some new Nikon lenses (such as the 70-200mm f/2.8E).
We summarize the scores and analyses of multi-purpose zoom lenses in this second part of our review of the best lenses for the Nikon D5. More versatile than primes, zoom lenses are often a more convenient choice for shooting in fast-paced environments when you don’t always have time to switch lenses. Although primes generally deliver better image quality, with noticeably improved edge sharpness and transmission, zoom performance has steadily improved, and now some come close to rivalling the performance of a prime.
The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.8G ED (Nikon 24mm f/1.8G) is the seventh f/1.8 prime G-type lens to be added recently to the Nikkor lineup. Designed to maximize the resolution potential of sensors such as the 36Mp Nikon D810, these latest lenses have been breaking new ground for optical performance on Nikon DSLRs.
Tamron’s popular 24-70mm f2.8 VC model, the maker has added a high-speed ultra-wide 15-30mm f2.8 version, complete with stabilization and a sonic-type AF motor. Read on to find out how well this new model performs.
Although Sony has concentrated on the E-mount lens range for their mirrorless Alpha range, it hasn’t entirely forgotten the A-mount lens range. This lens is an update to the highly-regarded Zeiss-designed full-frame 16-35mm f2.8 SSM model. Read on to find out how well this updated zoom lens performs.
Launched at the same time as the 50-MPix EOS 5DS and 5DSR DSLRs, the EF 11-24mm f4L USM is the widest rectilinear lens for photographers in the world. Read on to find out how well this brand-new model performs.
The Nikon D750 is an affordable 24.3Mp full-frame DSLR with attractive-looking specs for both the enthusiast and the professional photographer. It’s capable of producing outstanding pictures, but the quality of the lens used has a bearing on image quality. We’ve analyzed the performance of 105 lenses on the Nikon D750, and in part one we bring you an analysis of the top three zoom lenses in six different categories.
Whether it’s for landscape, architecture, or just to be able to squeeze a bit more into the frame, a wide-angle is an important lens for many photographers. They’re not the cheapest optics, however, and with varying image results across the different options, knowing each lens’s strengths and weaknesses will help you decide which one is the one for you. We weigh up the DxOMark lens scores of Nikon’s latest 20mm wide-angle prime against some of the competition.
In this second installment of lens recommendations for the Nikon D810, we’ve been analyzing the best performing models for landscape and wildlife photography. Admittedly when it comes to fast-paced photography there are better choices in Nikon’s range but there’s always a case for high-resolution imagery but the Nikon D810 also serves to highlight the best performing models, and particularly in the longer focal lengths where it’s more common (and often more practical) to use cameras with lower pixel densities.
Aimed at professional studio and landscape photographers, the full-frame 36-Mpix D800E with its modified AA filter effectively increasing resolution over the standard D800 model is the closest 35mm full-frame camera yet to rival larger formats in rendering fine detail. If you’re undecided over which of the two models to choose, we’ve analyzed the image quality of the Nikon D800E with over 100 different lenses to discover how well this groundbreaking camera performs.
