June 7 2011


New arrivals, and choices.

The Rokinon 35mm F/1.4 lens is now in stock.  Full frame users may want to look closely at this item, it’s probably similar in quality to the 85mm F/1.4.   For APS-C users; skip this lens, and go directly to the almost perfect Sony 35/1.8 (review here) for way less money, I suspect it’s also better, although not quite as fast.  I’ll be reviewing the Rokinon 35/1.4 in the future.

If you’re feeling lucky, the Sigma 120-400mm is available.  Order half a dozen and keep the best one.   Sigma primes seem to have pretty good QC, but the telephoto zooms are trouble.
