Chasseurs d'Images 261: test of lenses.
Feb 13, 2004

Sorry to disappoint those die-hards of the F-828 (no offence meant), but in the last edition of Chasseurs d'Images (see here: http://www.photim.com/Arrive/Sommaire.asp - you can order the edition on-line) the "cheap" EF-s 18-55 of Canon was tested better than the Carl Zeiss of the Sony F-828, and on a par with the Dimage A1.

More surprisingly, the 17-40 L was tested to be better on a EOS 10D/300D combination than on the EOS 1Ds, and, for all what Olympus claimed, the lenses for the 4/3 format were not exeptional (I'm summerizing)...

The "Centre Essais de Chasseurs d'Images" (CECI - test centre of Chasseurs d'Images) worked close together with the French software company DO Labs ( http://www.dolabs.com ) and is claiming to test all lens/camera combinations available (and to come) on the market. Impressive.

Sorry guys! For those that speak some French (it's never too late to learn), this edition is very interesting and IMO leaves Phils reviews (no matter how comprehensive and thoroughly) a dot behind...
