Canon’s Missing Fast Prime – The Sigma 28mm f/1.4 is Here

I have always been a fan of the 28mm focal length and long wondered why there was never an EF 28mm f/1.4 L lens in Canon’s otherwise exhaustive lens lineup.

Nikon F-mount is also available for pre-order, but it’s not yet clear when the Sony E-mont version will come to market. Later this year we should also see an L-mount version of this lens for Sigma’s upcoming full-frame mirrorless camera, as well

Sigma’s New 105mm f/1.4 Price Revealed…Wow!

I’m just getting caught up on all the latest photo news after a few weeks on the road. One of the things that jumped out at me right away is the price of Sigma’s new 105mm f/1.4 lens. The lens is available for order now at only $1599.

Ode to the Sigma 15mm Fisheye lens

About 3 years ago when I decided to start taking my shooting seriously, I also decided that I was going to need a fisheye lens. What action sports photographer doesnt have a fisheye right? Being a Canon shooter gave me two options, the Canon 15mm Fisheye or the Sigma 15mm Fisheye. At the time I remember reading something posted on the website Wheels And saying that the two were nearly identical in image quality. I had just bought a 70-200 2.8L IS so I though i’d save the money and buy my one and only non-canon lens with the
