Not even two months after announcing the remarkably compact Lumix S 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens, Panasonic is back with another lens for its full-frame cameras. The Lumix S 28-200mm f/4-7.1 Macro O.I.S. all-in-one zoom lens may not move the needle much for pros, but it fills an essential role in Panasonic's L-mount lens lineup. The new lens marks Panasonic's first wide-to-tele zoom for Lumix S Series cameras.

Sony FE 24-50mm f/2.8 G Review: A Solution in Search of a Problem

Sony FE 24-50mm f/2.8 G Review

When it comes to general-purpose standard zooms, Sony has you covered. With some classic choices like 24-70mm f/2.8 G Master II and 24-105mm f/4 G or the unique Sony FE 20-70mm f/4, there is something for everyone.

I got my hands on one to try, and here is what I found.

Sigma 500mm Review

When I heard about the latest Sigma lens, the 500mm f/5.6 DG DN Sport, I wanted to revisit the Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary. The new lens sounded ideal because it is unobtrusive, lightweight enough to handhold easily, and has the reach to capture these elusive Wolfdogs in their natural surroundings.

Sigma 500mm f/5.6 DG DN OS Sports lens

Sigma has long struck an exciting balance between offering high-quality alternatives to lenses the major camera makers offer and creating unique optics that offer something different from existing lenses. Sigma's two newest lenses both mostly fall into the latter category. The Sigma 500mm f/5.6 DG DN OS Sports lens is not wholly unique but fills an empty void in the E-mount and L-mount systems.
