Further readings for the Tokina AT-X 16-28 F2.8 PRO FX Canon
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.
Following its intriguing 24-70mm f2.8 stabilized model, Tamron has added a high-speed ultra-wide 15-30mm f/2.8 version, also with stabilization. Read on to find out how well the Canon-mount model performs.
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.
Canon has been instrumental in offering lightweight f4 lenses for professional users, and this new ultra-wide angle zoom L-series model is the first from the maker to include stabilization. Read on to see how well it performs.
With a full-frame 18-Mpix CMOS sensor and twin Digic 5+ processers that’s capable of continuous bursts of up 12 fps – the fastest of any professional DSLR currently - the Canon EOS-1 Dx is the firm’s flagship press camera. We’ve assessed it with over 100 EF mount lenses, to see how well they perform. Read on to find out which models are the best optically and which, if any, you should avoid.
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.
After comparing the imaging chain of the full-frame Canon EOS 5D Mk III across a raft of lenses, we’ve now turned our attention to the APS-C format EOS 700D / REBEL T5i / Kiss X7i. The 18.1-Mpix ‘Hybrid CMOS’ sensor in this camera is similar to those of the same size and pixel count used in the firm’s other models, including the semi-pro EOS 7D, so it may still be of interest even if you don’t own a EOS 700D / REBEL T5i / Kiss X7i.
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.
