Canon RF 28-70mm F/2L DxOMarked (impressive optical performance)

Canon RF 28-70mm F/2L Rf Mount Canon Eos R

RF 28-70mm F/2L at a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2 to f/22
  • Ultra-Low Dispersion Elements
  • Ring-Type Ultrasonic Motor AF System
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

DxOMark posted their review and test results for the Canon RF 28-70mm F/2L, a highly regarded lens for the EOS R system.

DxOMark gave the RF 28-70mm F/2L a score of 33, and see it performing better than the amazing Canon EF 24-70mm F2.8L II.

From the conclusion:

With such a fast F2.0 maximum aperture at all focal lengths, the new Canon RF zoom certainly feels like it’s showcasing the potential of switching to the new RF mount. Given the possibilities for low-light shooting, when switching between primes isn’t ideal, a lens like this is sorely tempting. At a dollar shy of $3,000, though, it is a pricey proposition. Still, it has very impressive optical performance, and when viewed overall, it’s even a slightly better performer than the highly-regarded Canon EF 24-70mm F2.8L II USM. Its appeal is somewhat niche, but if you need a lens like this, there isn’t anything else on the market quite like it.

Sigma 28mm F1.4 DG ART Review (premium 28mm lens, D. Abbott)

Sigma 28mm F1.4 DG Art

Sigma 28mm F1.4 DG ART at a glance:

  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16
  • Two FLD Elements, Three SLD Elements
  • Three Aspherical Elements
  • Super Multi-Layer Coating
  • Hyper Sonic AF Motor, Manual Override
  • Weather-Sealed, Protective Front Coating
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm
  • Compatible with Sigma USB Dock

Photographer and reviewer Dustin Abbott published the full review of the Sigma 28mm F1.4 DG ART lens. A lens that catches a lot of attention.

Among the things D. Abbott liked are the excellent build quality, quick and accurate AF, sharpness starting at f1.4, bokeh, contrast, well controlled chromatic aberrations, and more.

From his conclusion:

In many ways the Sigma 28mm F1.4 ART is the lens that the 35mm F1.4 ART should have been.  It delivers better focus accuracy, richer image quality, and has a superior build.  I would actually like to see Sigma build a 35mm F1.4 ART Mark II in the future and update it with some of the experience gleaned since its release (it was the first of the ART series lenses).  The only negative that I can point to by comparison is that the price has crept up to where the 28ART can no longer be considered a bargain even if it is cheaper than direct competitors.  And that may be the primary obstacle to it being a sales success for Sigma.  The 28mm focal length is not intensely popular (though incredibly useful), so the price tag (though probably warranted by performance) may be steeper than many want to pay. 

If you want a premium 28mm lens, however, it’s hard to rule out the Sigma 28mm F1.4 ART.  It does so many things very well, and produces truly beautiful images.  What more could you ask for?

Despite being a real world review, D. Abbott’s review of the Sigma 28mm F1.4 ART lens covers everything you might want to know and comes with a huge set of sample and test pictures. This is the kind of review I look for when I want to learn about gear.

Canon Rebel SL3 Review (strong fun factor, DPReview)

Canon Rebel SL3

Canon Rebel SL3 at a glance:

  • 24.1MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 8 Image Processor
  • 3.0″ 1.04m-Dot Vari-Angle Touchscreen
  • UHD 4K Video and 4K Time-Lapse Movie
  • 9-Point AF System; Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • ISO 100-25600
  • Built-In Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

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.
