David at phillipreeve.net reviews Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon Sep 09, 2017
David at phillipreeve.net reviews Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon
FM member @DavidBM just posted his review on the Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon.

Here is an excerpt from David’s conclusion:

“I recommend this lens. If you want a fast 24mm class lens, there is no alternative in native mount, and this is better than any I know of in any mount. I own the lens, have had it since fairly soon after it was released, and find it a very useful optic. If you like zooms, though, as I discussed above, you will get good performance from most of the Sony zooms at 25 mm. So you need to know that you need the bokeh possibilities, slight resolution and contrast advantages, handling advantages or perhaps flare advantages of the Batis prime.” - Read the entire review at phillipreeve.net.

Jordan at Admiring Light reviews Sony FE 70-200f/2.8 GM Sep 03, 2017
Jordan at Admiring Light reviews Sony FE 70-200f/2.8 GM
FM member @Jman13 (admiringlight.com) just posted his review on the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM:

Here is Jordan's conclusion:

Pros
  1. Robustly built lens with very solid construction
  2. Excellent haptics, including positive switches and well damped zoom and focus rings
  3. Very fast, quiet and accurate autofocus
  4. Outstanding image sharpness at all apertures
  5. Excellent color and contrast
  6. Beautiful out of focus rendering
  7. Excellent control of both lateral and longitudinal chromatic aberration
  8. Excellent image stabilization good for around 4-5 stops of extra handholdability
Cons
  1. Expensive
  2. Some distortion throughout the zoom range
  3. Some vignetting that doesn’t go away when stopping down

The Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM is an outstanding telephoto zoom lens. The lens is very solidly built and has a pro-grade feel like anything out of Canon or Nikon. It’s also outstanding optically, with great sharpness, contrast, bokeh and color and a very fast and accurate autofocus system. It’s truly a pro grade lens, though you’ll certainly pay for it.

Photozone reviews Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G Sep 02, 2017
Photozone reviews Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G
Klaus Schroiff at Photozone.com just posted his review on the Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G.
Note: Imatest charts are positioned at close distance and therefore these results could differ when compared to testing the lens at infinity.

Here is an excerpt from his verdict:

“The Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G is a bit of a surprising lens in a couple of ways. Upon first contact, you will notice how small it is compared to similar (DSLR-)offerings. It's even more obvious in term of weight (565g vs 1150g for the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 HSM ART). Now you may expect that this comes with a couple of compromises but there are actually only a few. The resolution characteristic is very decent. It's already pretty good at f/4 (except at 24mm) and quite impressive between f/5.6 and f/8.”

“If ultra-wide perspectives are simply your thing then the Sony is a no-brainer. Highly recommended!”

Official: Canon EF 85/1.4L IS, TS-E 50/2.8, 90/2.8L & 135/4L Macro
Canon has unveiled four new lenses tonight. There is a fast EF 85mm f/1.4L IS with 4-stop stabilization, nine-blade aperture and dust and weather-resistance. It's the cheapest at $1,599.

The other three are tilt and shift lenses: TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro, TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro and TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro. They feature enhancements such as molded aspherical glass, UD lenses and a larger tilt range compared to their predecessors.

The TS-E 50mm F2.8L and 135mm F4L use SubWaveLength Structure Coating to reduce ghosting and flare, and a new anti-reflective Air-Sphere Coating is used in the TS-E 50mm f/2.8L and TS-E 90mm f/2.8L lenses. All TS-E lenses are priced at $2,199.
