The Canon 24-70 f/4 IS is here and sharper than ever. Also part of this new upgrade was a hefty price upgrade, not so much from the retail price of the 24-105mm f/4 IS, but because the 24-105 can be found at greatly reduced prices due to the packaging of this as the kit lens in so many Canon cameras. Either way, the Canon 24-70 f/4 IS is now here and here to stay so let's take a look at the performance this has to offer.
With Canon discontinuing the 5D mark II, it is clear that the Canon 6D is here to fill the cheaper full frame void that the 5D mark II is leaving behind. However, can this new smaller, cheaper body fill this void successfully or will it merely leave you wanting more.
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.
