First look at the Leica APO-Summicron-SL 50mm f/2 by Jonathan Slack
How does Panasonic's new 24-70mm Lumix S Pro zoom compare with the Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90mm? On paper, the new Lumix offers a good deal.
According to the latest rumours, the world's smallest full-frame mirrorless camera, the Sigma fp, will cost under £1,900, some £1,000 less than previously thought
The UK price of he Sigma fp and the kit (wth the 45mm f/2.8 prime) have now been announced. Stocks should reach dealers early in December.
The L-Mount Alliance has given the camera indusry something new. It's a cross-manufacturer standard similar in scope to the micro four-thirds co-operative ten years ago and it looks as though it is succeeding. Sigma in particular is making a lot of headway, expecially with its high-quality Art lenses and the new and unusual fp camera which is proving a best seller in Japan.
Thinking of buying the £10,250 Leica 75mm Noctilux. Just for a moment, perhaps? But what about £450 for this 7Artisans look-similar. Is it worth a punt?
Did you know that a physical aperture ring on a lens can be useful? Or that it comes as a surprise to photographers brought up with fully automatic controlless lenses?
Two more lenses for L-Mount bring the Panasonic LUMIX range up to six. There are now over 46 lenses from Leica, Sigma and Panasonic available to owners of Leica and LUMIX cameras.
Sigma's new Art lenses for L-Mount offer fantastic value for money when compared with equivalent Leica SL lenses. But are they worth buying?
Leica's much-rumoured replacement for the innovative SL has arrived at last. With a bigger sensor, in-body stabilisation and class-leading video, it is likely to have a wider appeal than its predecessor.
