New Lens reviews (and US Sigma deal reminder)

Share

Short break from rumors! I have to catch up with some lens reviews posted by important reviewers:

Kurt Munger posted the full Sony DT 18-135mm lens review: “What’s actually welcome is the updated ‘SAM’ focusing (quieter and faster than the old ‘SAM’) with well implemented direct manual focusing, and the new metal mount; ok it’s cheap, but better than plastic.

SLRgear posted the Sigma 30mm review: “It holds its own in our tests, providing a sharp image even wide open at ƒ/2.8, with only slightly notable chromatic aberration in the corners.

David Kilpatrick tested the old and new Sigma ultra wide zooms: “The test made me even happier with the 8-16mm, especially with the thought that some modification could make it a unique lens to use on the Alpha 900 or a future full frame EVF model (A99)
