Lens reviews update: test data for the Nikon 58mm f/1.4G

DxOMark has recently reviewed Nikon's AF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G, a high-end (and very expensive) standard prime for full frame SLRs. As a taster for our upcoming review we've added the test data to our lens widget; as usual you can compare it to similar lenses, including the Nikon and Sigma 50mm F1.4s. Click through for more details and analysis, and a link to DxOMark's own review of the Nikon 58mm F1.4.

Hands-on with the retro Nikon Df

We've had a chance to spend some time with Nikon's retro Df digital SLR. This full-frame camera, which is designed to resemble Nikon's classic manual focus film SLRs, is loaded with dials for virtually every function imaginable, and is backward compatible with nearly every Nikon F-mount lens ever made. If you want to see the Df from every possible angle, then click to view our hands-on gallery.

Lens reviews update: the Sigma 120-300mm F2.8, and Nikon telephotos

DxOMark has recently tested the Sigma 120-300mmm DG OS HSM, and as part of our ongoing collaboration we've added the test data to our lens widget. We've also added a range of Nikon telephoto lenses including the AF-S Nikkor 200-400mm f/4G ED VR, which can be compared with each other and their Canon counterparts. Click through for more details and analysis.

Lens reviews update: a quick look at the Nikon 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6 VR

DxOMark has recently tested the Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, which in some markets will be sold as a 'kit' zoom with the latest D5300 SLR. As part of our ongoing collaboration, we've added the test data to our lens widget, so you can compare it with Nikon's other current DX standard zooms. We've included test data on both the D7000 and D7100 - the latter should be a good indicator of its performance on the D5300. Click through for the data and analysis.

Sigma USB Dock quick review

Sigma's USB dock is a unique device, which lets you tinker with your lens's settings to get the best results. In this quick review we give an overview of the device and the accompanying Sigma Optimisation Pro software, and see what adjustments it offers.

Lens reviews update: DxOMark data for Sony NEX primes

DxOMark has been busy testing lenses for the Sony NEX system, and has just published an article detailing which lenses score best on the NEX-7. As part of our ongoing collaboration, we've added the test data for most of Sony's own E-mount primes to our lens widget, which you can use to assess their performance and compare them against each other. We'll be adding Sony's zoom lenses and third-party primes very soon, but for now you can explore the test data for the Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* E 24mm F1.8 ZA, E 20mm F2.8, E 30mm F3.5 Macro, E 35mm F1.8 OSS and E 50mm F1.8 OSS.
