Camera / Lens Reviews

These are quick links to the reviews and commentaries i’ve done on various lenses, cameras, and other equipment.  If there is anything you would like to see, feel free to let me know.  I do not receive any of this equipment for free or for review, or on loan.  I either own or rent the equipment for professional photo shoots.  I generally only review after I have used the equipment for a while and put it through several serious shoots. (either clients, or personal)  The pictures I post don’t always reflect this due to not being able to publish client shots all the time…but know if I have posted on a lens it means it has passed the real world test for me.  I like to have a good feel for the characteristics before making any opinions.  Specs are less important to me than what I end up with in real use.  There is a section at the bottom for older reviews I did before this was a dedicated Olympus blog.  The Leica lens reviews are still quite valid with an adapter.  Just remember the 2x factor!
