Tamron 24-70mm lens

Tamron finally in the preparation to announce the replacement of its tamron 24-70 mm full frame lens built for Nikon Canon as well as Sony DSLR send SLT cameras

Point to be noted that the tamron 24-70mm FF lens already have built-in image stabilization that Canon 24-70 MM lens is missing. We expect the new version of that lens will carry advanced of image stabilization system as well better optical formula compared to the previous lens.

The current version of Tamron lens cost $400 less compared to Canon 24-70mm but the sharpness of Tamron isn’t satisfactory. They need to work on improving the optical quality of the lens.

Canon C200 camera image

Based on latest rumors Canon C200 camera will arrive sometime in June or may be in first week of July 2017. As we have told you earlier that Canon 6D Mk II camera will arrive in July so the announcement of C200 is about to happen prior to 6D Mk2.

The tipster of the rumor mill said the camera is “pretty loaded” with new stuff and 4K is present inside C200 model.

Canon C100 camera successor was Canon C100 Mark II. So, I don’t think it’s a successor C100 series camera.

We will update you soon as we get any new information.

Sigma 17-50mm lens image

Buy this lens from Amazon

Sigma 17-50mm F2.8

Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 Lens: Cost even less than half compared to the Nikon 17-55 mm f 2.8 lens.  The Sigma 17-50mm lens features fixed aperture and cost only $369. Surprisingly, when you look at the comparison between both the lenses When mounted on Nikon d500 camera (Nikon D500 and Nikon D7500 shares same sensor). The sigma lens sharpness score is 20 whereas the test score of Nikon is 19 only. The test score of both the lenses clearly indicates that despite of being 3x costlier than the Sigma lens to Nikon lens is unable to outperform Sigma during test condition.

Sigma makes excellent lenses and it will cost 3x  less than the Nikon lens and performs better than that.

Best Fixed Aperture Zoom

The Best portrait lens

and first lens we recommend for this camera is a portrait lens of 50 mm 1.4.  the fact is the 1.4 aperture lens is more brighter will give you more pleasant background Blur compared to an F1.8 lens, it will going to cost you a bit more compared to the 1.8 version. But getting an 50mm F1.4 lens mean extending the reach and limit of your creativity.

Nikon 50mm F1.8 is more affordable compared to the F1.8, Lens is one of the best portrait lens for your camera. The range you get from this FX AF-S Lens is 75mm (DX crop factor) which is perfect for shooting portraits under budget. While using the lens I have noticed that it produces exceptionally sharp images even when used at wide aperture. The bokeh quality of the lens is too perfect for its range.

The good: Best lens for shooting portrait

Nikon 40mm F2.8 AF-S DX  – It’s Tailored macro lens for DX format camera and delivers pixel to pixel level details. it’s a true macro lens that captures life-size macro images with excellent color and contrast. The only down side of the lens is lack of VR (Image Stabilization). So you have to keep your hands sturdy while shooting your subjects or you need to keep Tripods on.

The Good: Sharp images, affordable
The Bad: None


All Rounder lenses

18-300mm-image

Nikon 18-300mm lens from B&H and Amazon

NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR Lens A single lens that switch off the need of all the other lenses is.NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR Lens but with a compromise in image quality. This lens is also very important since when you are on travel and need an all in one solution then 18-300mm works for you. You can capture wide angle shot to super-telephoto from one lens. The images are bit soft at telephoto-end when used at Max aperture. The image comes sharp and usable when capture F7 at wide-end. Since, its an FX format lens so the range you get is 27-450mm lens. (approx 16X optical zoom).

The lens gives you longest possible zoom range available. So it made for those who don’t have the time and space to change lenses constantly.

The Good: Coverage
The Bad: Soft at telephoto-end @ Max aperture


We have two options here, the first lens is made by Nikon and features an decent specification with high-price tag. The other third party lens is build by Tokina and it’s performance and price is better than of Nikon.

Best Ultra-Wide angle lens

Nikon 10-24mm lens image

Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 ($896)
The lens is one and only ultra wide angle zoom lens. Available for Nikon D7500 camera. The 10-24mm is undoubtedly the best lens available for shooting landscape and architecture. It can be also used for shooting in streets or events, at night you may require tripod. The images from this lens is very sharp and exhibit minimal distortion. But what we don’t like is, the lens doesn’t carry image stabilization system and it’s cost in insane.

The Good: Image Quality
The Bad: No VR, Price too High

Affordable and better Ultra-Wide angle lens

Tokina-16-11mm-lens-image

Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 DX II ($449) Amazon and B&H

The F2.8 ultra-wide zoom lens available for Nikon camera that allow you to work without worrying about the lighting condition. Built-in internal AF motor works smoothly and fast.

Sony A9 Menu Shows 8K Recording Option

Sony A9

Early tester of the Sony A9 camera said, A9 built-in menu system showing 8K recording option. Take a look what he exactly said

Today I had the opportunity take a sneak peek at the Sony A9, and while checking the menu there’s a 8K VIDEO option but it’s disabled in the camera, when I asked more about this option the Sony representative took the camera away and noted that it could have been a pre-production error.

This report is Coming from an Sony user via SAR, when he was testing recently announced Sony A9 camera the Sony A9 model shows 8K video recording option.

We all know that to record a 8k video you need a 33 megapixel sensor. The current 20 Megapixel sensor of the Sony A9 camera cannot record a 8k video clip. But it’s also true that to create an 4K video footage Sony A9 camera records 6k videos,  the A9 does an Full pixel read-out and with the help of oversampling it creates 4K video files. That feature enormous amount of details with rich color and contrast.

But, future A7 series camera as well upcoming A9 may have the ability to record it with an higher resolution sensor. It’s an clear indication that Sony not only targeting professional DSLRs they are also keeping eye on cinematographers.
