Sigma Lens Tests & Reviews

Sigma lenses are popular amongst many photographers for two reasons… They either offer a very similar product to what the major camera manufacturers do, but at a lower price point, or occasionally Sigma offer something completely different. Examples of where Sigma offer something different include their extreme wide angle optics and their f/2.8 super telephoto…

Samsung NX System Lens Tests & Reviews

  Samsung’s NX system was the first mirrorless compact system with interchangeable lenses to use an APS-C size sensor, promising better quality at high ISOs and improved dynamic range. Samsung have a reasonable range of lenses, although third party manufacturers seem to have steered well clear of this system for now.

Pentax Lens Tests & Reviews

Pentax make some great cameras, but the range of lenses can be a little limited when compared to the likes of Canon, Nikon or even Micro Four Thirds. The greatest asset Pentax have is their K-mount, which maintains compatibility with lenses right through the manual focus era.

Micro Four Thirds Lens Tests & Reviews

Micro Four Thirds is the original mirrorless interchangeable lens camera system, which promises similar flexibility and image quality to a digital SLR camera, without the size and bulk of an SLR system. As well as being the original system to adopt this approach, Micro Four Thirds currently sports the widest selection of additional lenses, from fisheye to…

Nikon AF Lens Tests & Reviews

As I use Nikon equipment for my own work, I always have a slight vested interest in Nikon optics when I test them for ePHOTOzine, even though I can’t actually afford to buy any of them. Still, it’s nice to see first hand how these lenses perform, just in case I win the lottery, (without…

Fujifilm X-Pro1 – XF Lens Tests & Reviews

I was very lucky to get hold of a Fuji X-Pro1 one just after release, to test the three available lenses for ePHOTOzine. There seems to have been massive amounts of buzz surrounding this camera due to its fancy X-Trans sensor, rangefinder-like design and professional pretensions. For my uses, this camera wasn’t really my cup of tea. AF…

Canon EF Lens Tests & Reviews

Aside from the photography I do, I also work writing various articles on camera equipment and technique for various websites. One of those websites is ePHOTOzine.com and although I used to write about all sorts of equipment, I tend to only do lens reviews for them these days. Here are links to the articles I’ve written,…
