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.
Samyang have launched an updated version of their 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC lens for the Canon lens mount. Featuring an ‘AE’ chip the new lens enables electronic communication between camera and lens for changing aperture values, and checking focus, via the camera body.
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.
Following on from our series of selecting the best lenses for the Nikon D800 with its potential for massively detailed images from the 36Mpix sensor, we’ve now turned our attention to that camera’s younger sibling, the 24Mpix D600.
Launched in April 2012, this wide-angle prime lens from Nikon, with a fast maximum aperture of f/1.8, suggests it may be a great choice for landscape, architectural and reportage photography. A light weight of 330g also ensures it’s easy to travel with and won’t weigh heavily in your bag.
The Samyang 35mm F1.4 AS UMC wide-angle, with its f1.4 aperture, is made up of 12 elements in 10 groups. Its manual auto focus uses a floating focus mechanism for a better image quality on the whole range of focus distance.
And this design seems to be very efficient in term of image quality.
