LearningCameras puts the new Canon 35mm f/2 IS against the new Sigma 35mm f/1.4 to see which is sharper, focuses faster, and offers better performance and value. We also test test these lenses out on the new Canon 6D camera as well as a Canon 5D mark III.
Can the new Sigma 35mm f/1.4 hold its own against the 40% more expensive Canon L lens? And can a cheaper, 3rd party lens actually beat the longstanding Canon champ in sharpness, build, and focus speeds? LearningCameras puts these two lenses side by side to see which one is the greater of the two using some of the best DSRL cameras in the business.
A review of the new Sigma 35mm f/1.4. This lens offers some amazing abilities for a fraction of the price of the Canon & Nikon competition. But can Sigma compete with the long standing build quality, focus speeds, and sharpness from the big 2 manufactures?
We take the Nikon D600 up against the Canon 5D Mark III to test Dynamic range, low light performance, easability of use, and overall hardware. While the 5D mark III is more expensive, the D600 boasts professional level specifications in a smaller and lighter body. Can the D600 win over professionals looking for a cheaper or smaller alternative? Will the 5D Mark III's size and weight keep it from being the perfect backup body or travel camera? Let's find out.
An unbelievable DSLR at an unbelievable price widely available almost immediately after an announcement? This surely cannot be true. While many waited months for the D800 & 5D mark III and others waited the better part of the year for the D4 and 1DX, this ever important camera is now available after only a few weeks. And at first glance, the results are amazing. Stay tuned for this full review. It will be updated daily with new information, impressions, sample photographs, and results.
We go hands on for a review of the Yongnuo YN-560 Flash & RF-603 Trigger. Can this inexpensive flash & trigger hold up to our tests and are they worth your money or will they simply become your next door stop.
We take a look at the new HP Envy 15 and give a full look at everything good and bad in the current model. We also compare it hands on with the 2011 HP Envy 14 to give a full perspective on what has changed, what is better, and what could be better. Spoiler: it has a great looking screen.
There is an obvious lack of wide aperture lenses for Canon & Nikon’s 50mm equivalent focal length for cropped sensor cameras. While canon has some great L lenses in this category such as the 24mm f/1.4L and the 35mm 1.4L, these lenses are often over $1,500 placing them out of reach of most prosumer camera owners. Sigma has come to the rescue though offering quite a few lenses in this range, most notably though, the Sigma 30mm f/1.4.
