Roger Cicala is a hard man to impress. His team tests a lot of lenses, but the new Sony FE 135mm F1.8 GM looks like it's a cut above the average tele prime. His verdict? 'This is the sharpest lens we've tested. Period'.
Canon's EOS RP is the company's latest entry-level full-frame camera, and it happens to be mirrorless. The company's previous entry-level full framer was the EOS 6D Mark II, and so we decided to take a look at how they stack up for different types of photography.
Canon's EOS RP may be small on the outside, but it's hiding a big 26MP full-frame sensor on the inside. We've been pushing forward with our full review and have updated our gallery with fresh shots, and have taken a look at how how it handles our studio test scene – see for yourself.
Olympus promised a 150-400mm F4.5 with built-in teleconverter back in January. It's an idea that starts to make sense when you see the prototype.

Canon has used the annual CP+ show in Yokohama, Japan to showcase a limited edition gold version of its newest mirrorless camera and a collection of working concept models, first unveiled in 2018.
The Zeiss ZX1 was one of the great surprises of Photokina 2018: a full-frame, Android-based compact with a 35mm F2 lens. We got a chance to play with a pre-production example at CP+ and found something unlike any particular camera we've encountered before.
With 'Deep Learning' autofocus, crazy-fast burst speeds and refined ergonomics, the E-M1X is the most focused action and sports shooting camera that Olympus has ever made. Here's how it squares up against some key Micro Four Thirds and APS-C competitors.
The Ricoh GR series has long been a favorite of street photographers, and the latest iteration - the GR III - brings a new sensor, redesigned lens, in-body stabilization and on-sensor phase detection. We spent some time with a pre-production model in London and have some initial impressions to share.
After a rare Seattle snowstorm finally subsided, DPReview editor Jeff Keller was able to escape the snow and spend some time with the impressive Fujifilm X-T30, a camera that offers a lot of bang for the buck.

At Dubai's recent Gulf Photo Plus event, Fujifilm showed off several of its early concept mockups for GFX cameras that (sadly) never made it into production. We took a closer look.
A quick glance at the spec sheet doesn't make the Canon EOS RP look that exciting. But having shot with it, we've become oddly fond of this little full framer.
Alongside the EOS RP, Canon showed us mockups of the six lenses it says are in development for 2019. There's a distinct high-end flavor to the options in the works.
Sony's new 'Real-time tracking' AF system promises much improved subject tracking performance, using machine-learning, pattern recognition and much more. Here's what's changed – and how it actually performs.
We're at the Gulf Photo Plus event in Dubai, where Fujifilm has given attendees a sneak peek at a working prototype of its upcoming 100MP medium format camera.
We're in Dubai, where Fujifilm is showing off pre-production and prototype samples of three upcoming lenses - the GF 50mm F3.5 - a compact, lightweight standard lens for medium format, the XF 16mm F2.8, and the XF 16-80mm F4 for the company's range of APS-C format X-series cameras.
A day spent shooting Panasonic's new S1R in the streets of Barcelona, Spain left us feeling satisfied with how the camera operates – but eager to get testing.

We've been shooting with the new Olympus OM-D E-M1X for a little while now, both in and out of our studio. Our standard studio tests show that conventional stills performance is little changed from the E-M1 II, but its high-res Pixel Shift mode is still impressive.
The Sony a6400 is, in many ways, just a refreshed a6300, but its overhauled AF system makes a big difference. We look at how it compares with its rivals in and beyond the E-mount system.

Sony had the full-frame mirrorless market to itself for nearly five years, but it's no longer alone – the Nikon Z6 and Canon EOS R have both arrived priced to compete with the a7 III. We take a head to head to head look at these three cameras.
As if it needed one, the triple-camera smartphone might really be the final nail in the compact camera's coffin. DPR contributor Lars Rehm brought the LG V40 on a hiking trip recently and found it to be a huge leap forward in terms of creative freedom.
