Nikon AF-P 70-300mm f4.5-5.6E review

Here's a shot taken by +Thomas Rubach with the new Nikon AF-P 70-300mm f4.5-5.6E ED VR for his now-complete review at cameralabs! The AF-P 70-300mm E is a worthy successor to the popular AF-S 70–300mm G from 2006. The new model has better optics, is lighter, has better image stabilization, is faster and quieter to focus and offers improved sealing against the elements. But it also costs 50% more than the current street price of its predecessor. In his in-depth review (linked below), Thomas compares their performance, along with Sigma's recent 100-400mm, to help you find the best telephoto for your Nikon DSLR!

Sony FE 70-200mm f2.8 G Master review-so-far

You're just a hop, a skip and a jump from my Sony FE 70-200mm f2.8 G Master review-in-progress at cameralabs.com! I'm compiling a bunch of sample images galleries for all the Sony lenses I've shot with, and today's the turn of this pro telephoto zoom. It's fantastic paired with the Alpha A9 seen here but also powerful on cropped bodies too as you'll see! #SonyAlpha https://www.cameralabs.com/sony-fe-70-200mm-f2-8-g-master-oss-review/

Grand Palace, Thailand with Sony 18-105mm and A6500

If you're an owner of a Sony APSC mirrorless camera, you'll almost certainly have also experienced the 16-50mm kit zoom. It's certainly an impressively compact lens, but one that trades performance for size, so the question is what to go for if you want something better? Some suggest the Sony Zeiss 16-70mm, but the samples I've tested have failed to set my World on fire. For me, the best general-purpose zoom for Sony APSC mirrorless cameras is the 18-105mm Power Zoom and to demonstrate its flexibility I shot with it almost exclusively on the Alpha A6500 during a recent trip to Thailand. Here are my sample images from that trip. #SonyAlpha

Canon EOS Rebel SL2 / 200D review

Hi everyone, I've been working furiously to bring you one of the first in-depth tests of Canon's brand new compact but very capable DSLR, the EOS Rebel SL2, or 200D as it's known outside North America. It's the cheapest - and smallest - Canon DSLR with a 24MP Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensor and articulated touchscreen which, with the mic input, makes it ideal for vloggers or anyone looking for a more affordable version of the 80D. Anyway, check out my review and as always if you're ever shopping for anything at all from Amazon, B&H or Adorama, you can support me by first clicking through to them via the links on my reviews - thanks!
