Two new updates today, greatly delayed by the recent flurry of major SLR announcements we had to cover over on Imaging-Resource.com. There may be light at the end of the posting tunnel though.
New lenses up today are an OK tele zoom from Nikon, the Nikon 70-300mm f/4-5.6D ED AF Nikkor (the Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR Nikkor is half again more expensive, but much better optically, and has VR image stabilization built in), and a fantasticaly sharp macro lens, the Sigma 70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro.
There are more lenses still in the "old test" queue, and a bunch of Olympus Zuiko lenses just tested and awaiting writeup. (Nice-looking glass, BTW.) The good news is that we're breaking in a new editor whose time will be largely dedicated to SLRgear and lens reports, so there may (finally) be some light at the end of the tunnel for our lens-testing editorial bottleneck. Stay tuned, the pace of lens postings should pick up considerably over the next month or so. Backlogged test reports currently include the Nikon 50-200mm VR zoom (amazing that they managed to cram in VR for such a low price), the new Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L II (which looks to be a noticeable improvement over its predecessor), and a nice-looking 28-75mm f/2.8 from Tamron as well.
Meanwhile, here's a list of other lenses we've posted results for recently:
