Sigma 85mm F1.4 Art : the playboy (test/review)

gen 12 2017 01:00 | Lieve in International

The brand new Sigma 85mm F1.4 Art on a Nikon D5.   Let's go straight to the point! It's an exaggerated lens.   Exaggerated in size and weight (1,160 grams), it claims to be mounted exclusively on professional cameras.   It's so big that...

Sigma Sd Quattro and 150 f2.8 OS, the power of...

ott 29 2016 11:40 | Silvio Renesto in International

It has been a great pleasure for me to try again the Sigma Sd Quattro, this time with a true macro lens, the Sigma 150mm f2.8 Macro OS. Thanks to the high reproduction ratio, I was able to make real close ups, with unusual composition and framing, to get something different not simply a document, but also abstract images from nature.

ott 09 2016 11:20 | Silvio Renesto in International

The image quality of the Sigma SD Quattro has been a real surprise for me. I tried it in a professional context and the camera revealed as an excellent tool for palaeontological documentation. I explain here how and why.

Fujifilm X30 a cute little camera.

dic 27 2015 16:20 | Silvio Renesto in International

My user impressions of the Fujifilm X30, a compact camera that joins an old fashioned rangerfinder-like shape with ease of use and good image quality, despite to the smallish sensor and a few quirks here and there.

Sigma 105mm f2.8 Macro OS ... in macro (test/re...

ago 29 2015 19:20 | Silvio Renesto in International

I'm a fan of macrophotography and during my life I think I have tried, either for work or for fun, nearly all macro lenses with Nikon mount; both original ones and those and from other manufacturers like Sigma, Tamron and Tokina, often in different versions.
For this reason I accepted with pleasure the offer to try the newest version of the  105mm f2.8 Macro Sigma, the one with OS (image stabilization).
