The Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM is a large and heavy alternative to Canon and Nikon’s 70-200’s with a good reputation. It is also more affordable. But does it desserve its reputation ?
TTArtisan has announced a new 25mm f/2 lens for multiple APS-C mounts that costs a measly $55.

Given the fact that all the rage was about full-format gear in recent years, such a visible commitment to the format was certainly a relief. In this review, we’ll have a look at the lens that is probably the most interesting of the bunch – the Sony E 11mm f/1.8.

A couple of years ago, with samples taken on the last major overseas trip I took before Covid closed the world for quite a while, I reviewed the Laowa 100mm macro.
