Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens
Image quality results from the EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens review.
 
As with yesterday's lens, the 18-135 STM is a decent performer, especially for the cost when purchased in a DSLR kit, refurbished or white box.

Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens
I have updated the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens review with the following:
 
  • Manhattan cityscape sample image added
  • Additional focal length angle of view example included
  • Replaced the 100% corner crops with a better set of examples
  • Distinguished between the two versions of the Samyang 14mm Lens
  • More info regarding the Canon 8-15mm fisheye lens
I'm loving this lens. I spent a cold Thursday in New York City with the 11-24, arriving home at 3:00 AM. I had a blast – and had to force myself to occasionally turn the zoom ring beyond 11mm.
 
Join the fun – get your Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens from B&H (preorder with deliveries expected soon).

Just posted: the Triggertrap Mobile Dongle review.
 
This little device has been a part of my [Sean's] kit for the better part of a year now. While there are products that offer similar functionality, I don't know of any that are as versatile as the Triggertrap Mobile Dongle at comparable price point.
 
The Triggertrap Mobile Dongle is small, easy to pack and gives you tons of options for creative imagery. Check out our full review for more information on this fun little device.
 
The Triggertrap Mobile Dongle is available direct from the Triggertrap website.

All of the standardized test results (image quality, vignetting, flare and distortion) along with specs, measurements, standard product images and the owner's manual are now available on the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens review page.
 
My plan is to have the full 11-24 L lens review completed this week.

First Looks at Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens
Image quality results have been added to the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens review.
 
To put these results into perspective, check out the Canon 11-24mm L Lens vs. Sigma 12-24mm DG II Lens comparison. Spin through the focal lengths and apertures. The price difference between these two lenses is significant, but so is the image quality difference.
 
Standard product images are also available. Create your own comparisons.
 
I knew how wide this lens was going to be, but I'm still blown away by the 11mm angle of view. Even my kids were enthralled by this extremely wide view.
 
B&H has the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens available for preorder. A significant second shipment of this lens model is scheduled to arrive this week.

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens
Image quality results from the EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens review.
 
The 100 L has become my most-used macro lens ever. I love the look that the longer 180mm L macro lens produces, but the light weight along with image stabilization make the 100 L my go-to macro lens.

Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens
Image quality results from the EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens review.
 
My preference between this lens and the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens remains a toss-up. I have had each individually and the two together. I currently own both.

Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Lens
Image quality results from the EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Lens review.
 
Probably the most notable difference between the 7D II and the 1Ds Mark III is the crop sensor camera's reduced vignetting as a result of utilizing the center-most part of the image circle. Otherwise, image quality is impressively close wide open between the two bodies.
 
The world awaits the comparison between this lens and the just-announced Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens. This comparison will be a top priority once Sigma's newest "Art" lens lands in our hands.

Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM
Image quality results from the EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens review.
 
There is a reason that Canon is showing this lens mounted to the new Canon EOS 5Ds. This lens has the resolution needed to take advantage of high density sensors.

Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens
I wanted to visually see the new Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens beside the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens and the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens. So, I sized the lenses to scale and composited a prime Art lens family photo. You can definitely see the family resemblance.
 
B&H is accepting preorders for the Sigma 24mm Art Lens with initial shipments expected to arrive March 20th, 2015.

Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens
Image quality results have been added to the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens review page.
 
I think that you are going to like what you see from this lens. You will notice strong barrel distortion at 15mm (details in the top crop sample get enlarged) and some chromatic aberration to be corrected, but overall this lens is looking good including at f/2.8.
 
Here are some comparisons:
 
Tamron 15-30mm VC vs. Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L II
Tamron 15-30mm VC vs. Canon 16-35mm f/4 L IS
Tamron 15-30mm VC vs. Tokina 16-35mm f/2.8
Tamron 15-30mm VC vs. Zeiss 15mm f/2.8
