By request, I have added two smaller lenses to the big lens comparison tool. Allowing a smaller lens to be placed beside one classified by the site's product image tool as "big" allows a better visualization of the size of the larger lenses.
The two selected "small" (relatively speaking) lenses are the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens
and the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens
. These were selected because they are among the most likely lenses found in one's kit prior to stepping up to one of the big guns (and I have them in my own kit, meaning they were immediately available). Those looking at Nikon lenses can still use the smaller Canon lenses for comparison purposes as these are very similar to their closest Nikon equivalents in size.
Also now available are the standard images for the Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM Lens
. Here is a comparison placing the DO II between the two just-added smaller lenses: Canon 70-200 vs. 400 DO II vs. 100-400 L II
Because of its size, the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports Lens
does not fit in the frame of the standard product image comparison and I must declare it "big". This lens now has product images available
in the big lens image comparison tool. Responsive Design
As I mentioned
before, I have implemented "responsive design" on the site. Browsing the site on smaller devices including phones and tablets should be easier since the initial update. Many additional improvements are now implemented including most of the tools now being mobile-ready. One exception that remains is the Lens Image Quality Comparison Tool
. Since looking at 100% resolution crops is the primary purpose of this tool, letting images resize to a smaller browser viewport is defeating to its purpose. Until I come up with the right solution, I'll let this one break out of the browser window size. Up Next
Look for the 400 DO II review to be completed early next week. I have a second copy of the Sigma 150-600 Sports Lens coming in this week. That lens will be the next priority on the to-do list. The Sigma 150-600 Contemporary Lens should also be arriving any day now. There is a lot of interest in telephoto zoom lenses right now and I'm anxious to see how these new lenses compare to the previously available Canon 100-400 L IS II and the Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens
