Viltrox EF-L Pro - Quick Review
For extra stability and good compatibility, this EF-L adaptor plays nicely with the latest LUMIX bodies and older EF lenses.
Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 - Long Term Review
This is a hard lens to leave at home. It delivers quality and sharpness for landscapes and the night sky, plus has a neat party trick with rear pocket for ND filters. Worthy companion to any full-frame mirrorless camera. (Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG DN)
The Best 35mm Lens for My LUMIX
If you appreciate the value of a 35mm prime lens, you’ll also appreciate that there are a good many 35mm designs to choose from now. Here are my favourite two 35mm lenses from Panasonic and Sigma, both for full-frame L-Mount bodies, and why they appeal to such wildly different photographic styles.
EF to L-Mount Adaptor by Fotodiox
This is an alternative to the Sigma MC21 that lets you mount Canon EF lenses onto your new Lumix S-series bodies such as the S1R and S1H. The short version of this review is that they work just fine for AF lenses and represents excellent value.
Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sport
Lens review for the latest of the Sigma super telephoto zooms, a sports model that reaches 600mm and delivers exceptional image quality. Don’t let the f/6.3 specification fool you, this lens is sweet to the edges and delivers fast and confident autofocus to make chasing wildlife a pleasure.
New Life for EF Lenses
Not only does the AF system on the LUMIX S5II deliver amazing results for native L-mount lenses, but the performance of EF lenses is exceptional to the point of giving Canon owners a legitimate upgrade path at an affordable price.
The Perfect Lens and Why They Dont Exist
When it comes to lenses there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all. You have to try a lens before you know if it really suits you, and sometimes you grow out of the old one and move onto something new. just like us photographers, no lens is perfect.
SIGMA 60-600mm Field Review
I spent a few weeks in The Outback with the new SIGMA 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG DN OS SPORT L-Mount. The name is a mouthful, and the lens is a handful. This super telephoto represents the latest in AF and OS technology from Sigma, packaged into a superbly flexible and optically impressive full-frame wildlife lens.
Butterflies in Bhutan
I'm going to miss Bhutan when I head home, but this time for the most tiny of reasons. The butterflies. Having a few days to step into their miniature world of scaly wings and hairy heads has been an absolute joy.
Sigma 105mm F2.8 DG DN Macro Art
I spent a week in the desert looking for macro level inspiration, and this lens did not disappoint. Excellent value, remarkable optics and a dreamy bokeh make this a uniquely creative lens for your kit.
How to Bounce a Canon 1D MkIV
Normally when you get your hands on a lovely new piece of DSLR equipment it's a good idea to treat it carefully, avoid scratches and knocks, and try not to drop the unit from a height of 1.5 metres onto a concrete footpath.
