May 2008 news and reviews
Just posted! Our new lens review of Canon's top-end fast telezoom, the EF 70-200mm F2.8 L IS USM. This is Part Two in our planned tetralogy of reviews featuring 70-200mm F2.8 lenses tested on both APS-C and 35mm full frame cameras (coming soon! 'The Tamron Menace' and 'Revenge of the Sigma'). In our last review we found the Nikon 70-200mm F2.8 VR performing superbly on DX but struggling on the 35mm full-frame FX format, so how does Canon's equivalent stand up to our exacting tests?
We've just posted a gallery of samples from the new Olympus E-420 digital SLR, including a selection taken with the new Zuiko 25mm F2.8 'pancake' lens. The E-420 updates the 'world's smallest SLR' (the E-410), whilst the new lens offers an equally compact alternative to the more common 14-42mm zoom kit lens.
