Chris Gampat The Phoblographer Sony 28mm f2 lens review product photos (2 of 7)ISO 4001-125 sec at f - 2.8

Besides the 55mm f1.8 and 35mm f2.8, the only other compact autofocus prime lens that we have for the full frame E-mount is the Sony 28mm f2. It was recently introduced as part of the growing line of full frame E mount lenses. Targeted at street photographers, architecture shooters, candid shooters, and many more this lens is one of the few primes that also isn’t Zeiss branded.

With nine aperture blades, nine elements in eight groups, no image stabilization, and weighing in at 7.05 oz this lens has the potential to become a very standard lens for many.

One of the things that we often get asked is what the best camera is for each system if you just want the most bang for your buck. So what determines this? For the most part, it has to do with the feature set since not a single camera these days can take a bad picture. However, that also needs to be weighed accordingly with the price.

We’ve gone through our reviews to find which camera gives you the most bang for your buck.

Chris Gampat The Phoblographer Sigma 150-600mm f5-6.3 Contemporary Review product images (3 of 7)ISO 4001-180 sec at f - 2.5

Sigma offers the 150-600mm f5-6.3 lens in two different flavors: Sports and Contemporary. For those of us that failed Phys Ed, the company designed the Contemporary lens with a smaller size and lighter weight over the Sports’ better image quality and better optics. But that doesn’t mean that this lens is a slouch at all–and for what you’re paying for it, it shouldn’t be.

This lens is aimed at the high end enthusiast, though at its current price point it’s really not badly priced considering what you’re getting in a package like this. But at the same time, we think that the person using this lens really has to know what they’re doing–and a couple of specific ergonomic changes are only part of what makes us think that.

Chris Gampat The Phoblographer Lensbaby Velvet 55mm f1.6 product images (1 of 6)ISO 4001-140 sec at f - 2.0

Lensbaby’s Velvet 56mm f1.6 is a pretty new lens, and one that many of us didn’t necessarily expect. In the past couple of years, the company has been working on alternative lenses for various systems, and the first sample images look really cool in a lo-fi type of way. Indeed, Lensbaby has always been about seeing the world in a new way, and their newest lenses seem to make you do that, just in a more vintage style.

That’s not to say that these lenses have plastic optics at all, but if you’re a film lover then the Lensbaby Velvet 56mm f1.6 lens will give you quite a treat.
