    Micro 4/3 Debating the Olympus 75mm VS Sigma 56mm

    Hello. Spring is here and I'm having ideas of dog portraits in different areas, especially the low light ones like forest paths. I will use my Olympus 40-150mm f 2.8 PRO for action but I would like a faster lens for static and posing moments and achieve some shallow DoF. I can get that with the...

    Lens Rokinon 75 f1.8 X

    Here are a few photographs from a couple of nights ago when I took this newly acquired lens out for the first time. I've also included 100% crops from each. All of these were shot at ISO 3200 and I processed them through DXO Pure Raw which tends to soften them ever so slightly. (Also, the...

    Fuji Anyone have the Rokinon or Samyang AF 75mm f/1.8 FE Lens?

    This looks like a moderately fast lightweight 112mm equivalent lens. It says it has "5-point weather sealing" and linear autofocus. Does anyone have experience with one of these lenses?

    Leica Showcase 7Artisans 75mm F1.25

    On the M9, quick tests right out of the Box. No adjustments required, I use a 1.25x magnifier for focus. First impressions- this lens is FAST, and compact. Much smaller than my 50/1.1 Nokton. Click stops for the aperture mechanisms. Focus very smooth after a brief workout of turning from 0.8m...

    Leica New Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH

    Leica's newest portrait / near telephoto was announced today. I personally don't need that kind of speed or shallow DOF at 75mm, but it could be a great lens for those who do. And for only $13,000. Link to Leica Store Miami for more details: Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH

    Portraits are perhaps not my strong suit...

    A friend of mine needed some publicity shots for her new book, so I grabbed the GX7 and the Oly 25/45/75 lenses and headed into downtown Seattle on what could easily be described as the crappiest day of weather I've seen in years. Cold, rainy, windy. Ugh. Anyway, we shot a bit in the massive...
