DPReview posted their full review of what is the world’s smallest DSLR, the Canon Rebel SL3. The Canon Rebel SL3 got a rating of 79% and a Silver Award.

From the conclusion:

The EOS Rebel SL3 is, overall, a nice little camera with a strong ‘fun factor’ appeal, delivers good image quality and offers the versatility of both an optical viewfinder and a really polished live view experience on the rear screen. For those who don’t want or need the optical finder or the battery life the SL3 offers, I think the EOS M50 is a better fit. But there are those who will end up preferring the larger size and more comfortable grip of the SL3.

The SL3 not the best camera in its category for those wanting to shoot video (and if you already have a modern phone, it’s best to just use that, honestly), it’s not the best option for shooting fast action sports, and it’s not for power users that need more controls. But it just isn’t meant to fulfill those needs – the excellent guide mode for beginners should be evidence enough of that. The SL3 succeeds in producing reliably good image quality under a variety of conditions, and with minimal fuss.

Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Review (best bang for buck ultra-wide zoom)

Tamron SP 15-30mm F/2.8

Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 at ag glance:

  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • Three LD and Three Aspherical Elements
  • AX, eBAND, BBAR, and Fluorine Coatings
  • Ultrasonic Silent Drive Autofocus Motor
  • VC Image Stabilization
  • Moisture-Resistant Construction
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm
  • Rear Drop-In Gel Filter Holder
  • Compatible with TAP-in Console

The Phoblographer posted their full review of the Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Canon Mount).

From the conclusion:

Likes

– Fast maximum aperture

– Excellent image quality

– Versatile ultra-wide angle focal range

– Moisture resistance

Dislikes

– Not compatible with conventional lens filters

– Big and heavy

Although US$1,299 is certainly not an inconsequential sum of money, the Tamron SP 15-30mm f2.8 Di VC USD G2 is one of the best bang for your buck when it comes to ultra-wide angle zooms currently available on the market. While Tamron’s original 15-30mm f2.8 was an impressive lens in its own right, the addition of moisture resistance along with enhanced vibration compensation and improved lens coatings are certainly welcomed improvements. We just wish Tamron would put the lens on a diet so that it was less cumbersome to use, but that would probably require that they bend the laws of physics. With that said, we’d still recommend this lens to anyone that’s in the market for a versatile ultra-wide angle zoom lens.

The Phoblographer’s review comes with a huge set of sample pictures and analyses all optical aspects of the lens.

Tokina Opera 16-28mm F/2.8 Review (Photography Blog)

Tokina Opera 16-28mm F/2.8

Tokina Opera 16-28mm f/2.8 at a glance:

  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • Three Aspherical Elements
  • Three Low Dispersion Elements
  • Multi-Coating
  • Silent Drive DC Motor Autofocus System
  • 9-Blade Diaphragm
  • Built-In Lens Hood

Photography Blog reviewed the Tokina Opera 16-28mm F/2.8 lens for full frame DSLRs.

From their conclusion:

Sporting a more modern design that made its debut on the Opera 50mm f/1.4, this lens is well-suited to Canon and Nikon’s high-end full-frame DSLRs in both styling and size. 

Less appealing is the slightly sluggish, audible AF system, the inability to fit a traditional filter system, and the lack of any weather-sealing, whilst the push/pull focal clutch mechanism is satisfyingly retro but less convenient than automatic manual focus over-ride.

Image quality is very good. Chromatic aberrations are well controlled and bokeh is surprisingly appealing when shooting at 28mm. 

The only real optical issues are obvious vignetting and some barrel distortion at at the 16mm wide-angle focal length, a slight lack of centre sharpness when shooting wide-open at f/2.8 throughout the zoom range, and rather poor corner sharpness between f/2.8-5.6.
