We've had access to one for a lit
After last week's mega roundup which topped 50 camera models, this week's Firmware Friday post is a comparitively short and sweet affair. It's also a little unusual in that we only have news of lens updates this time around, with no new firmware landing for interchangeable-lens camera bodies or fixed-lens cameras in the past seven days. Without any further ado, let's get right dow
German optical manufacturer Meyer Optik Goerlitz has launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund the construction of a new version of its Primolpan 75mm F1.9 portrait lens that will be designed for sensor sizes from Micro Four Thirds all the way up to medium format.The so-called P75II will have a much wider image circle, to enable it to be used with the smaller medium format sensors such as the Hassel
Click here to see our Olympus 17mm f/1.2 and 45mm f/1.2 Galleries In late October, Olympus announced the new 17mm and 45mm f/1.2 PRO lenses for Micro Four Thirds. We've had some hands-on time with the new fast prime lenses and have now published a variety of gallery images for each of the primes. While full hands-on reports for each lens will be pu
After getting his hands on the new Sigma 14mm f/1.8 Art lens recently, photographer Alyn Wallace decided to take it out into the Elan Valley Dark Sky Park in Wales to put it through its paces. His first test: shooting the Milky Way handheld.“With the f/1.8 aperture you can let in so much light onto your sensor,” Wallace says. “This is the fastest super-wide-angle lens ever made.
More than once, we've called the Sigma 14mm F1.8 DG HSM | Art lens an astrophotographer's dream lens. From the moment it was announced, we were dying to get our hands on it; and once we did, it did not disappoint. But what's the big deal? Why pay $1,600 for this lens when the very capable Samyang/Rokinon 14mm F2.4 will cost you half as much and resolve nearly as much detail (if not more)?Light...
If you're thinking of picking up a great ultra-wide astrophotography lens, chances are good you've looked at the three 14mm primes featured in this video. The old Samyang 14mm F2.8 is a classic and affordable choice; the updated Samyang 14mm F2.4 is faster, higher quality, and not prohibitively expensive; and the Sigma 14mm F1.8 Art is a lens astrophotographers have been drooling over ever since

For Leica M mount users, they will soon be able to purchase a very fast 75mm prime. The German company has announced the Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH lens and this intriguing optic comes with an eyewatering price tag of US$12,795. This lens packs in a lot of interesting technology and appears to be well-suited for portraiture. The high-speed portrait lens has a "sophisticated optical compos

A lens like the new Sigma 14mm f/1.8 lens stands out as a good choice, for example, and Rokinon makes numerous fast wide lenses.
