Nikon Z 26mm f/2.8 Review

For this review of the Nikon Z 26mm f/2.8, I’ve tested the lens extensively both in the field and in the lab. This is one of the smallest, lightest full-frame lenses ever made, and not just by Nikon. But how does it perform?

The Best Micro Four Thirds Lenses: 11 of My Favorites

One of the advantages of Micro Four Thirds cameras is that Panasonic, Olympus (OM System), and third party lenses with a Micro Four Thirds mount can be used on any Micro Four Thirds camera.

Nikon Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S Review

I’ve been shooting with the Nikon Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S for just over a year, and I’ve finally completed all of the extensive lab testing necessary to publish a full review (including testing both TCs).

Pergear’s 14mm f/2.8, full-frame lens is a very interesting option for Sony, Nikon, Canon, and Leica mirrorless photographers. After all, it reaches wide and bright, yet costs under $300. But can it really deliver? I tested this budget ultra-wide in the field, and here’s what I found.

Sigma Joins the Nikon Z System with Three DX Lenses

Sigma just announced that three of their existing APS-C lenses – the 16mm f/1.4, 30mm f/1.4, and 56mm f/1.4 – are launching for the Nikon Z system later this year! I’ve been a fan of Sigma lenses for years, and it’s exciting to see them finally add some Z mount options.

Nikon Z 17-28mm f/2.8 Review

This is an in-depth review of the Nikon Z 17-28mm f/2.8, which was announced in September of 2022. Although the Nikon Z 17-28mm f/2.8 is a wide-aperture zoom with a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8, it is not part of Nikon's high-end "S-line," and the MSRP of $1200 is less...

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-45mm f/4 PRO Review

When you search for a high-quality lens for Micro Four Thirds, it's hard to avoid the PRO series from Olympus (now OM System). And in terms of a standard, midrange zoom, one of the best lenses is the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-45mm f/4 PRO. Unlike f/2.8 lenses, the Olympus 12-45mm...
