Just posted! Our new lens review of Olympus's ED 12-60mm F2.8-4.0 SWD, designed as the standard zoom for the high-end E-3 DSLR. With its extremely useful focal length range, relatively fast maximum aperture and new 'Supersonic Wave Drive' autofocus dubbed 'the world's fastest' by Olympus, does this lens live up to its considerable promise?

Just posted! Our new lens review of Olympus's ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6, the diminutive kit lens supplied with their lower end DSLRs such as the new E-420. This is the last in our opening series of reviews featuring kit lenses from the 'big five' manufacturers, but is this lens the least in anything other than size?
Just posted! Our new lens review of the Sony DT 16-105mm F3.5-5.6, the premium kit lens for the Alpha 700 and a tempting upgrade for existing Sony and Konica Minolta DSLR owners. With its remarkably useful 24-160mm equivalent zoom range, does this lens count as a unique selling point for the Alpha system, or are the compromises inevitable in such an ambitious design just too great?
Just posted! Our lens review of Nikon's 18-200mm superzoom for DX-format DSLRs. The AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF ED, to give it its full title, crams a hefty 11.1x zoom into a package smaller than its name might imply. But does this lens' enviable convenience come at the cost of compromises in its optical performance?
Just posted! Our new lens review covering the latest iteration of Nikon's 18-55mm kit lens, as seen on the new D60 DSLR. The Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR adds this season's must-have feature - optical image stabilization (or Vibration Reduction as Nikon would have it). This entry-level offering could help sway prospective buyers towards the Nikon brand, so can it live up to the fine reputation of its predecessors? (Note that this is the first ever review of this lens).
