The main sample images gallery page was getting too large, so I have created a new Images Gallery menu that allows selection of sample images galleries by gear type (such as Canon Zoom Lens Sample Pictures).
 
By request, I have modified the image galleries to be able to show more gear (tripod, tripod head, filters, extenders ...) specifically used for each image. And by more-specific request, the American Southwest Gallery has been updated with this gear. I don't know if I will get time to retroactively update other images on the site, but I will add this information to all new images.

I would not be surprised to see a Canon EOS 60D arrive this fall, but DxO Labs is apparently sure enough to publish the it. Update: Now Removed: The Canon EOS 60D is listed on the DxO Optics Modules Roadmap for inclusion in November.
 
I caution against making plans based on unsubstantiated rumors, but thought you might find this interesting. Canon typically makes new DSLR-related gear announcements in August.

ISO 12233 Resolution Chart Crops have been added to the Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 DI II Lens Review page.
 
The Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 DI II Lens and I are off to a rocky start. The first copy backfocused at all focal lengths. The second copy backfocused at 24mm. And by backfocusing, I'm talking about the lens focusing behind the subject by an unacceptable amount (not just a tiny distance) on both a 50D and a Rebel T2i. The third purchased-retail lens appears to be focusing accurately.
 
I have added ISO 12233 Chart results from the last two lenses (select the specific lens results to view using the drop-down box) - I was hoping the wide open results from the first-tested lens were an anomaly, but ... they apparently were not. You will not want to use this lens wide open very often.
