About me:

Allison has her father to thank for introducing her to photography at a young age. She's written professionally about cameras and consumer technology since 2008, including several years as Editor of DigitalCameraReview.com. She comes to DPReview from North Carolina where she wrote about smartphones, ate more biscuits than she'd care to admit to and spent several months accumulating bruises while training to become a roller girl. She's excited to be writing about photography again full-time and eager to explore Seattle with a camera at her side. Her Instagram account is shamelessly flooded with photos of her cat.

Best gifts for photographers in 2020

Sigma 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG DN OS sample gallery

Sony 12-24mm F2.8 GM arrives in August for $3000

Sony has added a 12-24mm F2.8 to its top-shelf 'G Master' series of lenses. It's the widest constant F2.8 zoom currently offered for full-frame, with a hefty price tag to match: it will sell for $3000 when it ships in mid-August.
