Rumor has it Tamron is about to update a very popular lens. The lens maker's current 24-70mm f/2.8 was released over five years ago in 2012, and if the recently updated 70-200mm is any indication, photographers should be very excited about the 24-70mm f/2.8 G2.

Nikon’s ‘Worst’ and ‘Best’ Zoom Lenses Compared

I'm going to preface this by saying that this isn't a lens review article, there are many photographers better suited for this topic, so if you're after refraction index comparisons and chromatic aberration charts this article probably isn't for you.

A Beginner’s Guide to Canon and Nikon Lens Abbreviations

Welcome to the world of photography, where geeky scientists make great lenses... and use all their secret codes to confuse consumers. Fret not, this guide will explain those EF-S, STM stuff to you, and a small history lesson to help you better understand.

Why You Should Use Back-Button AF on Nikon DSLRs

I finally have a chance to write a few thoughts down on the new Nikon D500. Were you (like me) one of the thousands of Nikon photographers who waited seven years for the successor to the D300s?

Nikon D5 Pro Review: The Batman of the Camera World

Powerful, insanely fast, supremely agile, hauntingly accurate and a master of the dark. The Batman of the camera world.

I could end the review there, but what fun would that be?

Sony Goes World Class: LensRentals Puts the 24-70mm GM to the Test

I was one of those who noted Sony had some troubles, as manufacturers often do, with some of their first generation lenses for full-frame FE mount cameras. When they announced the G Master lens series I was really excited to test them.

How I Bought a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 Lens for $50

Pawn shops are hit and miss for photographers, but when they're a hit, they can be a freaking HIT.

During one of my bi-monthly visits to all the local pawn shops in my town, I came across the sight above. It was a popular Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens that had an "As Is" label and a $99.99 price tag. A hundred bucks? Even for a broken copy of this lens that's a great deal -- you can sell just the parts on eBay for between $200 and $500...

Running a 10K Mud Obstacle Race with a Nikon DSLR in Hand

Nikon D750 Review: Nikon… You’ve Created a Monster

This Nikon D750 Review by Ross Harvey was originally published on his blog, and is being reprinted in full with permission.

What this review isn’t: pixel peeping and statistical comparisons between various cameras.

What this review is: a real world account in a professional environment from a gear lover with high standards. It's not intended to be a catch-all review, it's specifically tailored for my own needs and shooting style.

How to Do DIY Dust Cleaning Surgery on 6 Popular Canon and Nikon Lenses

Here's a question I get asked about 15 times a week: “How can I get the dust out of my lens?” The right answer is you don’t. All lenses have dust in them and it doesn’t affect the images at all 99% of the time. Even if you clean it all out, it will be back after you use the lens a few times.

Photographing Cars with Jay Leno

Every so often, a photo shoot comes along, and in the middle of it, you find yourself taking a step back and mentally trying to reckon with the idea that you should be paying just to be there.

But is that really the case? Maybe the humble kit lens has more to offer than we think, so today we will look at our five favorite kit lenses of all time.
