Non Scientific Comparison: Olympus 75mm f/1.8 vs Canon Ef 135 f/2L

Canon Ef 135 f/2L

Absolutely non-scientific comparison by Tyson Robichaud between the Olympus 75mm f/1.8 and Canon EF 135 f/2L lenses, the former mounted on an Olympus OM-D E-M5 and Panasonic GX1, the latter on a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and Mark I. Different systems, different sensors, different worlds – but if you are interested to learn how these lenses compare then Tyson's review is right for you.

Yet Another Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Review and Sample Pics (slrgear, shockingly sharp images)

slrgear reviewed a pre-production model of the awesome Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 lens, the first to give you a constant f/1.8 across the zoom range, and at an affordable price ($799). An “an incredible lens at an amazing price” that’s “shockingly sharp”. I am sure this will be the most interesting lens this year (and easily also next year). Can’t wait to have it. Simply speaking: Sigma made everything right with this lens!

The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L lens could be set to be discontinued by Canon.

It appears that some customer who tried to get their lens fixed have been told that there are no spare parts left to repair the EF 70-200mm. Another user said his EF 70-200mm in need of repair was replaced with an EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II (at no extra cost). Read the rest of this entry →
