Zeiss Batis 18mm f2.8 Video Autofocus Test on the Sony a7R III and First Images

The Sony a7R III is quickly becoming my favorite camera of all time. Stills wise, the image quality is top shelf. Video is something that I am just starting to play around with, and I […]

ZEISS Loxia 85mm f/2.4 Lens Review on the Sony a7R III

Since I’m coming from a Leica system, I previously reviewed and absolutely love the Leica 75mm f/2 APO lens. Unfortunately, the 75mm APO won’t perform the same on a Sony as it does on a […]

Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Review (Update) – This time on the Sony a7R III

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve owned this lens and reviewed it last. Initially, I liked the lens but wasn’t all that enamored with it. Well, times and opinions change. I bought this […]

Laowa 15mm f/2 Initial Impressions on the Sony a7R III

In my other recent articles, I’ve been singing the praises of the Zeiss Loxia Lenses. However, the widest Loxia lens is 21mm. Sometimes, you just want wider. I’ve heard good things about the Laowa 15mm, […]

This Presidents Day weekend, our family headed down to Long Beach, WA. Time to bring along the 90mm Tele-Elmarit-M f/2.8, and test out this lens some more. Previously, I wasn’t too impressed with the sharpness […]

1970s Leica Leitz Canada 90mm Tele-Elmarit-M f/2.8 Review

I already have a 75mm APO Summicron lens that I am quite pleased with. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t want to own a 90mm APO Summicron as well ($4,200 new). Since a new 90mm […]

Leica 75mm f/2 APO-Summicron-M ASPH Review

Without a doubt, this is my favorite lens and focal length to date for the Leica M system. That pretty much sums up this review right here. What do I like about it? I actually […]

Sigma 16mm f/1.4 for Sony E Mount Review

For the last couple of months, I’ve been shooting with a Sony a6500 (prior to selling it for a Panasonic G9). One of the lenses that I purchased to use with the Sony was the […]

Panasonic G9 – Review

Review Summary: This Panasonic G9 is the best Micro 4/3 camera ever! It’s so good when matched with Olympus f/1.2 primes that it gives the Sony a6500, Fuji X-T2, and Canon 5D Mark IV a […]
