Choosing a lens

Are you looking for a good lens with a mount for a specific brand? Or an interchangeable lens for a specific topic? A lens with a fixed focal length, a zoom lens or a walk around lens? Use this page to find the lens reviews you are looking for.

Lens reviews sorted by lens mount, lens brand, lenstype or subject:

WYSIWYG: Inclusive in-camera lens corrrections

All lens reviews are, with: "What you see, is what you get" in mind, based on standard (sharpened) jpg files straight from the camera. In this overview final scores are listed for zoom lenses. The test results for individual focal length (zoom lenses and fixed focal length) are shown in another table.

Pure performance: Without lens corrections

All lens reviews are based on the results of RAW files straight from the camera. All different RAW files have been converted using the same (3rd party) RAW converter, suing identical settings. In this overview final scores are listed for zoom lenses. The test results for individual focal length (zoom lenses and fixed focal length) are shown in the table below.

Individual focal length test results

LensReviews

The tested focal length ("[email protected]") is expressed as the focal length equivalent for a lens on a camera with a full frame sensor. Doing this yields test results for lenses tested at different sensor sizes, which can be compared directly.

Both results inluding in-camera lens-corrections (jpg) and uncorrected, sharpened RAW files 9RAW) are shown in different tables
