Sony has made some strong claims about its new G Master lens series. Unveiled earlier this week, the FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM is one of three in the lineup to make its debut. We had a few moments to shoot with the lens at Sony's press event in New York. Sharpness is impressive, as is the lack of axial chromatic aberration. Take a look at a handful of samples. Read more

Although I'm a scientist by training, having recently completed my Ph.D in biophysics, photography has always been a huge passion of mine. It's been an incredible opportunity to meld these two interests together here at DPReview!
Sony has just announced the APS-C a6300, an update to the immensely popular a6000. Its technological advances seem poised to break down some of the last remaining strongholds of DSLRs. Sony has released a few videos demonstrating some of these features. Have a look
Sony has created a new lineup of lenses for its full-frame cameras known as G Master (GM). These are the company's high-end lenses that sit above its 'G-series' lenses and, as you might imagine, command a premium price. The first three GM lenses include FE 24-70 F2.8, FE 85mm F1.4 and FE 70-200 F2.8. In addition to the lenses, Sony also released a pair of 1.4x and 2x teleconverters. Read more
Sony has introduced the long-awaited update to its popular a6000 mirrorless camera: the a6300. Featuring a newly developed 24 Megapixel APS-C sensor and a completely revamped AF system with 425 phase-detection AF points, the a6300 sits at the top of Sony's APS-C mirrorless lineup, and arguably addresses one of the biggest shortcomings of mirrorless by offering live view during 8 fps burst shooting.

The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II is the company's latest flagship DSLR. Its lineage and price tag make clear that it's aimed at professionals, but what does that really mean? We take a closer look at exactly who the 1D X II is for and how those features are relevant. Read more

In this article, we'll talk you through the biggest changes. Read more
Canon made some big claims about the development put into its 35mm F1.4L II. Its new Blue Spectrum Refractive optics is claimed to minimize longitudinal chromatic aberration, and a new 9-blade aperture promises smoother bokeh and 18-ray sunstars. With a copy of the lens in our hands, Sam Spencer put these claims to the test in a shootout against the Mark I version and the Sigma 35mm Art. Read more
Winter can be a stark wonderland in the Pacific Northwest, especially east of the Cascade mountain range. Editor Barney Britton spent some time with the new Nikon 24-70 F2.8 ED VR lens amongst the snow-covered rolling hills, waterfalls, forests, and even sunny beaches our beautiful state provides. See how the lens performed in this set of real-world samples. Read more
CES 2016 saw the announcement of two important DSLRs from Nikon, including an update to its flagship line, as well as an almost mythical product many had given up hope of ever seeing: a true D300 replacement. The D5 and D500 really refine the DSLR with a number of under-the-hood improvements. In case you missed any, we've compiled and analyzed some of the most important underlying technologies in these cameras. Read on
