Canon 90D DSLR Short Review

It’s no coincidence that Canon has released the 90D and the mirrorless EOS M6 Mark II camera at roughly the same time. These two cameras have quite a few of the same features, including the same image sensor.

Where the M6 II is one of the best mirrorless cameras on the market, we can’t say quite the same thing about the EOS 90D. This DSLR can’t match full-frame cameras from Canon or Nikon in terms of image quality or performance speeds. (It’s quite a bit cheaper too.)

But versus other intermediate-level DSLRs with APS-C sized image sensors, the 90D is near the top of the list. With 32.5 megapixels of resolution and excellent operational speed, this camera is well worth the purchase for someone new to DSLR photography or for someone looking to upgrade an older DSLR.

If you’re more of a fan of the smaller camera body found with mirrorless ILCs, you may be better served going with the M6 Mark II. It carries a lower price point than the 90D, yet it’s able to deliver similar results with video and still images.

But if you like the heft and size of a DSLR, we really enjoyed shooting with the 90D. It’s easy to recommend this camera, even though we’d like to see its introductory price point be just a little bit lower. It also has a built-in viewfinder, whereas the M6 II has a detachable viewfinder.

It performs well for all kinds of image and video scenes, giving you outstanding versatility. No matter what kind of photography you have planned for the day, you can feel confident taking the Canon EOS 90D with you and achieving strong results.

Canon M6 Mark II Mirrorless ILC Short Review

The Canon EOS M6 Mark II mirrorless ILC is an impressive piece of tech. It has quickly jumped to the top of the chart of the Canon family of mirrorless cameras, featuring impressive levels of performance along with outstanding image quality and video quality.

At 32.5 megapixels of resolution, the M6 II can pick up details in a scene that older Canon mirrorless models can’t match. With such a high level of resolution, you can crop photos successfully, while maintaining plenty of resolution to make large prints. And its color accuracy is excellent.

With the DIGIC 8 image processor, the EOS M6 Mark II is a fast performer, delivering a burst mode up to 14 frames per second. Its high-quality autofocus system works almost instantly in most photography situations.

You’ll appreciate the ability to record 4K video with this camera at speeds up to 30 frames per second as well.

It’d be nice if Canon had chosen to build an electronic viewfinder into the camera body of the M6 II, instead of allowing you to add an external EVF by attaching it to the hot shoe. And advanced photographers will really wish Canon had more pin sharp M mount lenses available. The quality of the M lenses almost holds the M6 Mark II back just a bit in terms of image sharpness. (Canon DSLR owners may want to invest in an adapter, so they can use their DSLR lenses with the M mount.)

Ultimately, if you want outstanding performance speeds and image quality, all in a mirrorless camera design that’s quite a bit smaller than the majority of DSLRs, the EOS M6 Mark II is a choice that won’t disappoint. It’s easy to recommend that Canon M6 and M5 owners should make the jump to the M6 Mark II.

Fujinon GF23mmF4 R LM WR Short Review The Fujinon GF23mm F/4 R LM WR is not a lens that every photographer needs, primarily because it is designed specifically for Fuji’s GFX series mirrorless medium format cameras, and not everyone has or wants a medium format body. However, if you are invested in the GFX system, this lens filled that ultrawide prime gap the system has been missing. Until its release in the summer of 2017, Fuji’s widest lenses were the GF32-64mm F/4 R LM WR zoom and the GF45mm F/2.8 R WR prime that is equivalent to 36mm on a 35mm format. Not only that, but it also delivers sharp and clean image quality as well as extensive weather sealing. It may not have the best autofocusing in low lighting situations, it’s a bit slow with its F/4 maximum aperture, and it’s big and bulky. However, if you’re in need of a wide-angle lens for your GFX body, this has your name all over it. Just be prepared to spend $2,599 for it. Fujinon GF23mmF4 R LM WR Image Gallery

The advice contained in this piece will apply to any lens, naturally, but please know our praise for the new Tamron 35-150mm is genuine.

Here’s Sally…

With all of the prime lens options on the market, it can be hard to choose the best focal length for your work. From fashion portraiture to wildlife photography, photographers around the world are always researching the latest and greatest technology when it comes to lenses. From the versatility of zoom lenses to the stunning beauty that comes with a prime lens, there are truly a vast amount of choices.

What if I told you that you could have all the picture-perfect portrait focal lengths in one lens without sacrificing wide aperture?

Tamron has created the 35-150mm F/2.8-4 Di VC OSD (Model A043) stabilized lens, a well-made zoom lens with incredible image quality and the capability to shoot every great focal length photographers require for portraiture.

| Manual | 95mm | F3.5 | 1/250 | ISO 320 |

Photographers desire and demand image quality and the Tamron 35-150mm delivers. Its sharpness, contrast, and ability to create beautifully compressed images make it an all-in-one dream lens. Check out this crop of the above image:

Tamron 35-150mm: 95mm Portrait Crop

Portrait photographers often require shooting at low apertures to blur their backgrounds and create beautiful bokeh. I believe Tamron had this in mind when creating this lens. Every captured shot is not only incredibly sharp, but also renders beautiful bokeh, which is surprising for a lens that costs less than $800.

Tamron 35-150mm: 150mm Portrait

| Manual | 150mm | F4 | 1/640 | ISO 200 |

Quite often, affordable lenses have bokeh that is distracting with harsh tones. But the Tamron 35-150mm, as you can see above, produces soft-looking bokeh that is undeniably pleasing.

Whenever I encounter a photographer coming into the industry, one of the first questions I get asked is, “what the perfect focal length is for portrait photographers?” I always say that it depends on what kind of portraiture you choose to shoot. The remarkable thing about the Tamron 35-150mm is its incredible versatility. In other words, you never need to compromise which length is the best because you have them all in the palm of your hand!

35mm

The Tamron 35-150mm begins at 35mm, a perfect focal length for portrait photographers who want a little flexibility. Why? Because it’s the widest angle you can shoot close to a subject without distortion. And it’s great for surrounding your subject with beautiful scenery.

  • Extra tip: make sure your subject sticks out from the background in wider shots because you have less compression at 35mm

Tamron 35-150mm: 35mm Portrait

| Manual | 35mm | F2.8 | 1/800 | ISO 200 |

50mm

The 50mm focal length has long been an ideal portrait focal length because you’re still relatively wide and can include more stunning surroundings, but also because you’re getting more compression and shallower depth-of-field than with 35mm. 50mm is always a go-to for me when shooting weddings because of this very reason. I absolutely love all that 50mm has to offer.

  • Extra tip: use 50mm on the Tamron 35-150mm to take full body shots while isolating your subject from a distant background. A field with tall grass or flowers is perfect for this!

Tamron 35-150mm: 50mm Portrait

| Manual | 50mm | F3.2 | 1/800 | ISO 200 |

85mm

85mm, the bread-and-butter of portrait photography. Photographers gravitate to the magnificence of the 85mm focal length because it typically blends beautiful lens compression and subject sharpness. If you try nothing else as a photographer, set the Tarmon 35-150mm to 85mm and you’ll be set and ready to go. As you can see from the below images, this lens is amazing.

  • Extra tip: if your camera doesn’t have Eye-AutoFocus, make sure to set your focal point on your subject’s eye

Tamron 35-150mm: 85mm Portrait

| Manual | 85mm | F3.5 | 1/400 | ISO 200 |

105mm

Some folks don’t like shooting portraits at higher focal lengths, but I love to have them in my arsenal. The longer the focal length, the further you can be away from your subject, which happens to be amazing for wildlife photographers and photographers that need the length for beautiful subject compression for ad campaigns. 105mm is definitely one of my favorite focal lengths on the Tamron 35-150mm because of the way it makes your subject pop from a beautifully compressed background.

  • Extra tip: unless you’re trying to incorporate or juxtapose your background, try to make your subject fill the whole frame.

| Manual | 105mm | F4 | 1/400 | ISO 200 |

Tamron 35-150mm: 105mm Portrait

| Manual | 105mm | F4 | 1/640 | ISO 200 |

 

135mm

135mm has become the hot new focal length for prime lenses, and it’s no different in the Tamron 35-150mm. If you thought the bokeh and background compression were creamy at 105mm, 135mm is even more beautiful and somewhat dreamlike. Anytime I get to shoot portraits outside, 135mm is my go-to longer focal length as it’s a nice compromise between 105mm and 150mm.

  • Extra tip: try shooting with soft backlighting (closer to sunset), which creates a halo effect around your subject’s hair.

Tamron 35-150mm: 135mm Portrait

| Manual | 135mm | F4 | 1/640 | ISO 200 |

Tamron 35-150mm: 135mm Portrait

| Manual | 135mm | F4 | 1/400 | ISO 200 |

150mm

150mm, the lesser-known option for a portrait focal length. Because there are actually very few options when it comes to purchasing a 150mm prime lens, I am so glad Tamron added this focal length to this zoom. 150mm is for when you want to get as tight as possible to your subject. No context. No background. Just you and your subject. As for the results? I absolutely love and adore every single image created at this length. The’s an elegance to the contrast, sharpness, and compression that similar to the Tamron 100-400mm telephoto zoom lens.

  • Extra tip: at 150mm, you’ll be so far away from your subject, don’t forget to communicate with them as you set up your framing.

Final Thoughts

The Tamron 35-150mm F/2.8-4 Di VC OSD offers much more than focal length versatility. It boasts impeccable design, beautiful image quality, creamy bokeh and you can use it with both Nikon and Canon’s full-frame and APS-C camera bodies. This is an incredible feat for a zoom lens to blend this much performance and quality for such a low and reasonable price. Looking at the image above created for this piece, the Tamron 35-150mm quickly became a favorite lens of mine, and I plan to shoot with it for a long, long time!

Canon Rebel T7 Short Review

The Canon EOS Rebel T7 is a solid entry-level DSLR delivered at a desirable price point. Its performance level and feature set certainly are not going to meet the needs of experienced photographers, as the T7 is squarely aimed at beginners.

Unfortunately, Canon missed some chances to make the Rebel T7 a better entry-level DSLR for beginners. The LCD screen is not tiltable, and it does not have touch features. The screen’s quality isn’t as good as some other entry-level DSLRs, either.

In fact, the Rebel T7 lags other similarly priced DSLRs in quite a few categories. Its burst mode performance is a disappointment. It does not offer a Bluetooth connectivity option. Its battery life is below average versus other DSLRs (although it does compare favorably to mirrorless cameras).

However, if you’re just seeking an entry-level DSLR that delivers good image quality at a low price, the Rebel T7 is a nice choice. In fact, the T7’s image quality is the one major area where it outdoes its predecessor, the Rebel T6. There are a few other entry-level DSLRs on the market that we like more than the T7, but it’s still a good camera, especially if you can find it at a bargain price.

Nikon D5600 Short Review For those who are seeking a first DSLR or who would like a second DSLR to pair with an advanced Nikon model, the D5600 is an excellent choice. Its image quality, performance levels, and ergonomics are all above average when compared to other entry-level DSLRs.

Canon RF 28-70mm F/2 L USM Short Review

The Canon RF 28-70mm F/2 L USM MSRPs at $2,999, which is a pretty steep price to pay for a standard zoom lens. To put that into perspective, Sony’s FE 24-70 mm F2.8 G Master lens for its A- and E-mount full-frame cameras is $800 less, Nikon’s Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S for its Z-mount mirrorless system is $700 less, and the Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD is only a fraction of that price at $800.

That is, it’s massive size doesn’t get in the way of shooting, things like fringing, flare, and ghosting are extremely well-controlled, and that fair amount of vignetting is quickly fixed in Lightroom.

On the other side of those, you’re getting very sharp and clean images with beautiful colors. You’re also getting weather-sealing, fast and accurate AF, a large minimum aperture that’s constant throughout the focal length range, beautiful bokeh and, of course, the versatility that a standard zoom lens affords.

Sure, there are a number of more affordable rivals out there. But if you’ve just invested into the Canon EOS R system, you’ll want the Canon RF 28-70mm F/2 L USM in your bag if you want a versatile lens that takes incredible images. You’re just going to have to save up for it.

Fall is in the air, folks, which means it’s time to give away another Tamron lens! That’s right, we’ve partnered with Tamron USA to host a portrait photo contest and one of you is going to walk away with a shiny new zoom lens.

Let’s get back to basics for a moment. What is a portrait, exactly? Simple, it’s a photograph where a person is the main subject. Portraiture may be the most important photography genre because its whole purpose is to capture the humanity of another person. And we see portraits every day, from our class photos as children to headshots for actors and corporate employees to fashion and clothing catalogs to wedding, pregnancy, and engagement photos. Heck, even your awkward driver’s license photo is a portrait.

The key to a stunning portrait is to tell a story about your subject, giving us a glimpse into who they are as a person (or the fictional person you’re trying to create). At the heart of this glimpse taken or story told, you’ll find tack-sharp EYES. Remember that old saying, the eyes are a window into the soul? It’s never truer than when you’re shooting portraits. Another trick is using longer focal lengths and a shallow depth of field, which are in-camera tricks to isolate your subject from the background. Other portrait photographers like to shoot wide-angle and include the person’s surroundings.

Tamron Logo

For this portrait photo contest, we want you to explore any and all types of portraiture. Color and black and white. Wide-angle and telephoto. Shallow depth of field and infinite. Documentary style or posed subjects. Whatever your style or theme, as long as it’s a portrait, you can enter in this contest. And, you know what, I’m feeling generous so let’s include ANIMALS in our contest as well. Same idea as above, but instead of humans, feel free to submit your best shots of your furry, feathered, and scaly friends too.

Tamron 35-150mm F/2.8-4 Di VC OSD

 

THE PRIZE

The Steve’s Digicams staff, acting as judges, will award one talented photographer with one Tamron 35-150mm F/2.8-4 Di VC OSD ($799 MSRP). Everyone else could earn a day featured as the Steve’s Digicams Photo of the Day!

We’ve yet to complete our in-house review of the Tamron 35-150mm F/2.8-4 Di VC OSD, so stay tuned for that. But here’s a rundown of the key specs and why we’re excited about this lens.

  • Available for Canon EF and Nikon F-mount cameras, which includes their new RF and Z mount mirrorless systems with adapters.
  • F/2.8 max aperture at 35mm; F/4 max aperture at 150mm
  • Includes marks for all key portrait lengths (35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 105mm, 135mm, 150mm)
  • Minimum object distance: 0.45m (17.7 in) across the whole zoom range
  • 9-bladed aperture for creamy bokeh
  • Measures only 4.9″ long (124.3mm)
  • Weighs only 27.9 oz (790g)
  • Dual MPU (Micro-Processing Unit) for fast autofocus and vibration compensation
  • OSD (Optimized Silent Drive) for near-silent AF
  • Moisture-Resistant
  • Fluorine Coating to prevent fingerprints on the lens
  • BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating to reduce ghosting and flare

In short, this is an affordable all-in-one portrait zoom lens that offers the same flexibility as of a bag full of prime lenses, but without ever having to pick just one. It’s not only perfect for portraits, but also for families who travel or parents who want to shoot sports or a ballet recital or the school play. For more details about this lens, click HERE to see Tamron USA’s official product page!
