Fuji X-S10: First Snowstorm of the Season in New York City

Fuji X-S10: First Snowstorm of the Season in New York City:

Hey everyone.  We just had our first snowstorm of the season here in NYC, and we ended up with a lot of snow.  I decided to wake up really early, and get the shoveling out of the way.  Then, I took out the Fuji X-S10, which is what I’m currently reviewing, to see if I could get a few shots just around my neighborhood.

Sigma 30mm f1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens First Impressions L Mount

Sigma 30mm f1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens First Impressions L Mount:

I have another Sigma lens that I’ve been testing lately that I want to talk about, and this is actually the last of the three APS-C lenses for L mount currently out that I have in my hands: The Sigma 30mm f1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens for L mount.  For those interested, I’ve already posted the review of the 56mm f1.4, and you can also read my first impressions of the 16mm f1.4.  Getting back to the 30mm f1.4, it’s a 45mm equivalent focal length, which is like a normal lens making it great for a variety of subjects.  I’ve been testing this on the Leica CL, and here’s what I think of it so far.

Sigma 56mm f1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens Review L Mount

Sigma 56mm f1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens Review L Mount:

The Leica CL is one of my favorite APS-C mirrorless cameras but truthfully, I wish there were more native lenses.  I don’t think I am alone in this wish.  Yes, there are M mount lenses, and full frame L mount lenses.  Those are great alternatives, of course.  However, I don’t always want to rely on manual focus lenses, and full frame L mount lenses are often huge on the CL, especially ones made by Leica.  The good news is Sigma has released three APS-C lenses that come in L mount.  I’ve had the pleasure of using all three, and right now, I’ll be reviewing the short tele: the 56mm f1.4 DC DN Contemporary lens.  Here’s what I think of it.

Sigma 85mm f1.4 DG DN Art Lens First Impressions L Mount

Sigma 85mm f1.4 DG DN Art Lens First Impressions L Mount:

Sigma recently released the 85mm f1.4 DG DN Art lens but unlike their previous version, this one is designed specifically for mirrorless cameras.  In other words, it’s more manageable in terms of ergonomics and size.  I’ve been excited to give this lens a thorough test ever since I heard about it, and I was fortunate enough to get a loaner to try with my Leica SL2.  Here are my first impressions of it.
