It's already a good day for Sony fans with the company announcing the new Sony A7 III last night, and Sigma has added even more excitement for Sony mirrorless shooters. Sigma Corporation has announced that nine of their Art lenses will be released in native Sony E-mount versions, including their two new lenses, which you can read more about here. Sigma has previously released some lenses for
Last year, Rokinon launched their SP series for Canon full-frame cameras with the SP 14mm f/2.4 and SP 85mm f/1.2, two distinctly fast prime lenses. This year, they kicked things off with the autofocus 14mm f/2.8 and now they're following with the SP 50mm f/1.2 standard prime. While not equipped with autofocus, the SP 50mm f/1.2 employs numerous advanced optical technologies including aspheri
Pre-order the Zeiss Loxia 25mm f/2.4 here For Sony E-mount photographers, Zeiss just announced a new member to their Loxia full-frame, manual-focus prime lens lineup, a 25mm f/2.4 optic. Squeezing in between their ultra-wide 21mm f/2.8 and the classic 35mm f/2 wide-angle lens, the new Loxia 25mm f/2.4 offers a happy medium of sorts for those who want a wide-angle perspective that's not too wi
If you're a photographer, chances are you're at least somewhat familiar with the word "bokeh". Originally a Japanese term for how lenses render the out-of-focus parts of an image, it's rapidly turning into the latest photography buzzword. Most people have little idea of what bokeh really means, though, thinking that any kind of blurry background is "good bokeh." If they knew just slig
Click here to read my Fujifilm GF 45mm f/2.8 Field Test The latest lens to join the Fujifilm GF lens lineup is the GF 45mm f/2.8 R WR, which I recently had the chance to use. This 35mm-equivalent prime is relatively compact for a GFX lens, weighing in at just over a pound (17.3 ounces/490 grams) and balances very nicely on the GFX 50S body. It offers f
In an interview with Shinesparkers (a Metroid Prime fan community), former technical lead engineer on the first three Metroid Prime games Jack Mathews looks back at his experience developing each title.  ...
Leica Camera has officially announced a pair of new lenses for its SL system. The two new Summicron-SL lenses are the APO Summicron-SL 75mm f/2 ASPH and the APO Summicron-SL 90mm f/2 ASPH. With the addition of these two SL primes, the SL lens lineup now has three prime lenses to go with its pair of zoom lenses. Let's take a closer look at each of the new optics. Starting first with the APO Su
Numbers might not sound like they need discovering, but a crowd-sourced project has now identified the largest prime number known. The number was discovered by the Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS), an online project of citizen scientists who spot and verify prime numbers using specialty software. It's been dubbed M77232917 – and if you're wondering why it needs a codename, well, w
The fifth autofocus lens in Rokinon's lens lineup is their first for Canon EF-mount. The 14mm f/2.8 AF lens has been designed from the ground up for full-frame Canon EOS DSLR cameras and is weather-sealed. The lens offers an angle of view of 116.6 degrees on a full-frame camera and its autofocus system has been designed to minimize weight and offer accurate, fast autofocus performance. The le
It is a proven, scientific fact that the longer one shoots, the more one craves lenses. Camera bodies are important, no doubt about it, but lenses can last a lifetime and separate your imagery from the crowd. They are as important to a photographer as a high-end microphone is to a seasoned audio engineer, and at IR we spend a lot of time discussing and debating (and dreaming about) these little g is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics. We focus on hi-tech reviews, gadgets and geekery but we like almost anything that's awesome, appealing and thought-provoking! er6i9ds5mz
