Sigma 24mm 1.4 ART Lens Review – A real world wedding review shot on Nikon

Using the Sigma 24mm 1.4 ART Lens for weddings First of all I’ll get the usual “this is not an in depth chart and numbers review” disclaimer out of the way and just let you know this is a real world review. If you want to check out the in depth MTF charts and everything…

Pentax Lx Review

Pentax Lx: Pentax’s best 35mm film camera and possibly one of the best 35mm cameras ever made. My main film camera is now the Pentax LX :) This little blog is about my experience and findings with this little gem of a camera rather than a fully blown technical review, but I hope it gives others a little insight…

The Nikon 85mm 1.8 G is the lens I’ve owned for the longest and is part of my 35 / 85 lens combo I use for weddings. Its light, fairly quick to focus and is sharp wide open. It’s the lens I’ve owned the longest as it’s one of the most useful. Is it my…

Sigma 35mm 1.4 ART Lens Review – Taken on a Nikon D800 & F100
