Is The Sigma 35mm f2 DG DN Contemporary Worth It?

In Pro Camera Reviews, we recently looked closer at the Sigma 35mm f2 DG DN Contemporary lens.

The Sigma Contemporary lineup have sort of struck us as odd. And the Sigma 35mm f2 DG DN Contemporary is just that lens. In fact, we still don’t totally know what to think of it. It’s a solid lens, but Sigma does some things that are very odd to us. And we discussed that in our recent episode of Pro Camera Reviews.

In This Episode:

Is the Sigma 35mm f2 DG DN Contemporary Worth It?

We’ve spent the last month or so testing the Sigma 35mm f2 DG DN Contemporary lens. This is Sigma’s third 35mm lens. It’s also their most affordable of the bunch. While being stuck mostly inside with the pandemic, we found ways to be creative with the lens. We’re going to talk about our findings with the L mount version of the lens. And in the end, we’re going to decide whether or not it’s right for you. Will this be your next 35mm lens?

Canon R5, Sony a1 or Fujifilm GFX 100s: Which One?: Canon, Sony and Fujifilm are at the top of the innovation game right now. And we’re going to break down their three top cameras. We’ll weigh them by lens systems, autofocus, build quality, ease of use, image quality, and talk about their innovations. Hopefully, by the end, you’ll be able to make a more informed decision on which camera to buy. Yes, they’re all expensive. But let’s be honest, photography is an expensive hobby and profession!

What Are Speed Boosters? First Impressions of Hasselblad’s XH 0.8 Converter: Most photographers have heard about and know about teleconverters and what they do. However, far fewer photographers know about speed boosters and what they can do. In this episode of Pro Camera Reviews, we will take a quick look at what these converters are, what they do, and the pros and cons of them. We will also give a first impressions look at the new Hasselblad XH 0.8 converter (speed booster) that allows Hasselblad H lenses to be used on Hasselblad X mount bodies like the X1 D II and the 907X.
