September is here and summer is drawing to a close but don’t be sad camera fans because there are still some pretty exciting releases scheduled for the last quarter of 2017. One such release could be the Canon G1X Mark III which we tentatively hope to be announced this month.

We would expect leaks to begin soon if...Read More

Not hard to argue is that the Sigma 14mm f/1.8 Art Lens has the best 14mm image quality available to date. This lens delivers impressively sharp images, ranking very high in the entire field of lenses (not just among its ultra-wide peers). The design of this lens is...Read More
