Fresh from OLAF Optical Testing is another batch of MTF charts, now available in the Tamron 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens and Tamron 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Lens reviews.
 
As always, there are many interesting comparisons to be made. I'll get you started. Keep in mind that wide open apertures are being compared and these are not equal in most cases.
 
Tamron 35mm f/1.8 VC vs. Canon 35mm f/2 Lens
Tamron 35mm f/1.8 VC vs. Canon 35mm f/1.4L II Lens
Tamron 35mm f/1.8 VC vs. Nikon 35mm f/1.8 AF-S Lens
Tamron 35mm f/1.8 VC vs. Canon 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens
Tamron 35mm f/1.8 VC vs. Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AF-S Lens
Tamron 35mm f/1.8 VC vs. Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art Lens
 
Don't forget to view the variance charts – that of the Tamron 45 VC is very impressive.
 
The Tamron 35mm f/1.8 VC and Tamron 45mm f/1.8 VC are in stock at B&H.

From the Lightroom Journal:
 
In October, we released Lightroom 2.0 for iOS which made it possible to use Lightroom on iPhones and iPads without a paid subscription, and the response has been phenomenal. Today we’re excited to announce Lightroom for Android version 1.4, which adds the same free offering for Android users. The ability to use Lightroom for mobile without a paid subscription means that anyone can take advantage of the organizational, editing, and sharing abilities that Lightroom for mobile offers. Signing up for a free trial or logging in with a Creative Cloud subscription adds the ability to synchronize files and edits with Lightroom on a desktop or laptop, as well as with Lightroom Web.
 
We’re really excited to continue our focus on Android and pleased that Lightroom for mobile was recently listed by Google as one of the top apps of 2015. We’ve seen Android grow as a platform over the years, with billions of users around the world. As a photography platform, Android is making huge leaps and strides. New devices are being launched all the time with better and better cameras, and with the launch of Lollipop and the ability to shoot raw DNG files, Android provides one of the most powerful photography platforms available. Lightroom for Android supports raw DNG workflows making it possible to enhance images and take full advantage of all of the quality and details found in images captured on Android devices. If you’d like to read more about the exciting abilities that DNG can offer, check out this awesome blog post by our friend, Martin Evening.
 
We’re committed to making Lightroom Mobile for Android better and better and can’t wait to share some of the improvements we’re working on. Keep checking back with us, but for now, download Lightroom Mobile for Android 1.4 today!

Photographer Martin Evening has written a thorough and informative article on the open standard DNG file format.
 
From the Photoshop Blog:
Is it wise to convert your raw files to the Adobe DNG format? If you are using Lightroom or Photoshop with Camera Raw, you have the option to convert your master files to DNG. In this article I want to focus on the benefits of converting, the reasons why converting to DNG may not always be ideal or necessary, as well as tackle some of the misinformation about DNG.
Read the entire article on the Photoshop Blog.

Typically speaking, B&H offers 2-4% Rewards on DSLR cameras and lenses. However, for a limited time B&H is offering 10% Rewards on select Canon DSLR cameras. However, you must use the link in the previous sentence to trigger the higher rewards.
 
The Rewards Program works like this: roughly 40-60 days after a qualifying purchase, the customer is sent a B&H Gift Card via email which is valid for 6 months after issue.
 
Keep in mind, 10% Rewards on the Canon 5Ds R would be enough to cover the cost of accessories such as the BG-E11 battery grip and the recently reviewed Feisol TT-15 Mini Carbon Fiber Tabletop Tripod.
 
Canon DSLR Cameras Eligible for 10% Rewards
 
  • EOS 1D X
  • EOS 5Ds
  • EOS 5Ds R
  • EOS 5D Mark III
  • EOS 6D
  • EOS 7D Mark II
Canon DSLR Camera/Lens Kits Eligible for 10% Rewards
 
  • EOS 5D Mark III with EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM
  • EOS 5D Mark III with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
  • EOS 6D with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
  • EOS 6D with EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Update: It looks like there are several Nikon DSLRs that qualify for the 10% Rewards as well.

I recently had the opportunity to photograph from the top of the Rockefeller Center, from the observatory decks named "Top of the Rock". The view from this location is excellent and the imagery waiting to be captured is eye-catching, but there are some things you should know before you go. I have posted a guide to help you maximize your time at this location along with many tips that can be applied to other similar locations.
 
The Ultimate Guide to Photographing at Top of the Rock (and Tips for No Tripods Allowed Locations)
 
This image was captured at 16mm with the amazing Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens, a great choice for this location. And, the Feisol TT-15 Mini Carbon Fiber Tabletop Tripod made this 2 second shot possible.
 
A larger version of this image is available on Flickr, Google+ and Facebook. Also, if reading from a news feed reader, click through to see the framed image.

I have one of these that looks like the EF 24-105L and it was always a hit when I worked in an office environment. These mugs make excellent stocking stuffers and are sure to be a catalyst for conversation when filled with one's favorite caffeinated beverage. [Sean]
