Sigma has announced that it will be launching three new lenses for Canon EF-M mount: 16mm, 30mm, and 56mm f/1.4 primes that will fit Canon’s compact range of M-series cameras.
I’ve always passed on 35mm prime lenses. On paper, they always seemed too close to what I could already capture with my phones or what’s duplicated in my 24-70mm professional zoom lenses. It turns out, I didn’t know what I was missing until I tried out the Tamron SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD lens.
Zeiss has just officially announced the new Otus 100mm f/1.4 lens for the Canon EF and Nikon F mounts. It’s the fourth Otus lens to be announced and the one with the longest focal length so far.
For a while now, Samyang has been producing some very popular lenses. Their lenses are known for being excellent when it comes to optical performance without the premium price tag. This is why so many photographers love their lenses.
Canon recently redesigned two popular super-telephoto lenses in the new Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III and EF 600mm f/4L IS III. Both lenses are designed to be significantly more portable than their predecessors.
“Both lenses possess a dramatic weight reduction and high-image quality, making it ideal for shooters to easily transport and capture images during action-driven scenarios, such as sports and wildlife,” Canon says.
The difference between prime lenses and zoom lenses can often be a source of confusion for photographers who are picking up a camera for the first time.
I remember when I first started with photography, wondering why someone would choose a lens with a fixed focal length over one with a whole range of focal lengths built into one.
