I added a gallery of Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM Lens Sample Pictures to the site. You will quickly notice the ultra-wide angle theme that this lens invites.

Standardized test results have been added to the Zeiss 100mm f/2.0 Makro-Planar T* ZE Lens Review page.
 
Update: I have temporarily removed the ISO 12233 chart results for the Zeiss 50mm f/2.0 Makro-Planar T* ZE Lens and the Zeiss 100mm f/2.0 Makro-Planar T* ZE Lens review pages. While both lenses show excellent resolution right into the corners, the results are showing some flaring around the edges of the details in the chart. Zeiss does not think this should be happening, so I'm going to test a Canon lens simultaneuosly with a Zeiss lens - and perhaps test using two camera bodies. Stay tuned for the results (probably next week).

I was in the area, so I had to check out Rock Run in the Loyalsock State Forest.
 
Well, nothing is really in the area of this location, but it doesn't take much of an excuse to pull me to places like this. Prior to this trip, I did not find many Rock Run photos online, so I thought I would share a few of my Rock Run Pictures (Ralston, PA) with you.

I have updated the Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 Distagon T* ZE Lens Review.
 
In the review, I highlighted an exposure problem I was having with this lens. I'm letting you know that Zeiss replaced the faulty lens with a new one - and the new one works fine.

I was testing a Canon EF 600mm f/4 IS USM Super Telephoto Lens on a Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III Camera body for a new lens comparison tool (coming to the site in the near future). After completing a short test procedure, I removed the 600mm lens from the body - only to be greeted with a very-dishearteningly-noticeable amount of smoke.
 
I obviously had the 600mm lens framed too close to the sun for too long of a period of time - which I'm guessing was a minute or so. Here is a look at the blistered plastic in the 1Ds III.

Imagine taking an $8k lens off of a $6k camera and seeing a plume of very-black smoke come out. Wish I had video'd that! The good news is that the camera is fine - just cosmetic damage was done.

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.
