Further readings for the Tokina AT-X 12-24 AF PRO DX 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.
Launched side-by-side, the EOS 760D and EOS 750D (aka 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 labs coupled with a wide range of native and third-party Canon-mount lenses. Read on to find out how these models perform.
The EOS 7D Mark II is Canon’s flagship APS-C sensor DSLR, boasting a 20Mp resolution and a host of high-end features. It’s a popular choice for many serious enthusiasts and semi-pro photographers, so we’ve tested over 300 lenses on it to help you pick out the best one for you. In this first part of a two-part review, we round up the best zoom lenses for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II.
This is the second and final part of our comprehensive lens recommendations for the new entry-level Canon EOS Rebel T5 / 1200D. This time we’ve assessed zoom lenses from both the Canon and third party makers to see how well they perform on the camera, and like before we’ll not only reveal the best performers but also take a closer look at the more accessibly priced options.
Introduced in July this year, the EOS 70D at first sight seems like a regular update to the maker’s mid-range EOS 60D model. It shares a number of features with the firm’s existing SLR range including a 19-point cross-type phase detection AF system, a 3-inch (1.040M dot) articulated touchscreen and built-in WiFi connectivity with remote viewing and image transfer. The camera can also shoot at up to 7fps and has 1080/30p video recording with stereo sound using an optional external microphone.
With its compact and lightweight body, the Canon EOS 100D / Rebel SL1 / Kiss X7 is the smallest DSLR in the firm’s line-up. While it adopts a similar performing sensor to the EOS 700D, the body is around 25% of the size of that model by volume and presents its own set of challenges when selecting lenses for it. In this review, we’ve taken a look at the optical quality of 130 different lenses fitted to the camera but this time we’re also making some limited recommendations about the handling and video capabilities.
The annual CP+, or Camera and Photo Imaging Show, takes place in Japan, the heartland of the photography hardware industry. With new lenses covering wide-angle through to extreme super-telephoto and options for all the different Interchangeable lens mounts and camera systems, this year’s show, seemed to be all about new glass for your cameras in 2013. We pick out and preview 11 lenses that caught our eye.
Very wide-angle lenses allow photographers to produce an image composed of a large number of objects and to frame very large subjects (such as buildings) at close proximity, and to photograph objects on different geometrical planes that can be very far apart. Such lenses also accentuate perspective, with the most noticeable result being the distortion of straight lines.
