Nikon Z 50mm f/1.8 S Review

The Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S is the third lens released for Nikon’s Z-series mirrorless cameras, and one of the most important as well. In this in-depth review, we will take a look at the performance of Nikon’s first mirrorless “Nifty Fifty” and discuss whether it lives up to...

Venus Optics Laowa 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 Review

In this detailed review of the new Laowa 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 for Nikon Z mount, we will take a look at the world's widest rectilinear full-frame zoom lens and see how it performs on the Nikon Z7 mirrorless camera body. We had a chance to test this lens for a few...

Profoto B10 Review

This is a review of the Profoto B10 AirTTL OCF Flash Head, a lightweight, portable and battery-powered flash designed for professional portrait photographers. Although Profoto had previously released battery-powered flash heads for on-location work such as the B1 (see our Profoto B1 Review), B1X and B2, they were all either...

Nikon Z 14-30mm f/4 S Review

The Nikon Z 14-30mm f/4 S was one of the most hotly anticipated Nikon Z lenses, especially given that it is the first ultra-wide for the new mirrorless system. So far, every Z lens has received near-universal praise for its image quality. However, photographers’ initial impressions of the ($1300) Nikon...

Nikon Z 35mm f/1.8 S Review

The Nikon NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S is a professional-grade prime lens that was released as part of Nikon's first full-frame mirrorless system release in 2018. Although the Nikon Z6 together with the 50mm f/1.8 S were slightly delayed, the 24-70mm f/4 S and the 35mm f/1.8 S were the...

Fuji X-H1 Review

One could argue that Fuji's timing of the X-H1 release in February of 2018 was a bad marketing move due to the release of the X-T3 months after the announcement. I wholeheartedly agree, as the X-H1 certainly did fall into the shadows of the X-T3 and all the fanfare that...

Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM Review

With the introduction of Canon's first full-frame mirrorless camera, the EOS R, an important challenge arose: releasing spectacular lenses that convinced photographers of the new system's potential. The first two "crown jewel" lenses in the new lineup are the RF 28-70mm f/2L zoom and the RF 50mm f/1.2L - the...

Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Review

The Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM is the first kit lens introduced with the new EOS R full-frame mirrorless system. The term 'kit lens' is misleading, though, as the Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM bears Canon’s L designation and promises professional-level performance. At the time of publishing this article,...

Canon EOS R Review

2018 was a big year for mirrorless cameras with Nikon, Canon, and Panasonic all announcing their first full-frame mirrorless systems. Nikon struck first when it released the Nikon Z-series cameras in the summer, but Canon wasn’t too far behind when they introduced the EOS R a couple of months later....

Tamron 100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD Review

Announced just eight months after the Sigma 100-400mm F/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary lens, the Tamron 100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD gives photographers a similarly priced alternative to the highly successful Sigma offering. Both lenses compete in a market segment that remains unexploited by the likes of Canon and Nikon....
