Camera Labs tests all of Nikon’s kit lens offerings. This was a great idea for a comparison.
Since many owners end up using their first lens for some time, or even the entire lifespan of their camera body, it’s clearly important to choose the right one from the start. In this group test we’ll examine the four most popular lenses bought with Nikon DSLRs, whether the official kit models, or popularly bundled alternatives. All are DX models which means they’ll work with any Nikon DSLR, from the entry-level D40 to the professional D2X. They’re also all AF-S models which means they’ll auto-focus when fitted on the latest D40 and D40x bodies.
Head on over to see the results.
Popular Photography has reviewed the Casio EX-V7. What makes this little compact attractive is the unorthodox 7x zoom on such a small package.
Just when you’re about to give up hope, in walks Casio, who at January’s CES show, announced that they are making a statement about wimpy little zooms on point and shoot cameras. The 7.2 MP Hi-Zoom Exilim EX-V7 (street $ 400) fits in your shirt pocket and is the latest in Casio’s line of slim, sleek point and shoots. But, unlike the ultra-slim competition, the EX-V7 has a 7x (38-266mm f/3.4 – 5.3 35mm equivalent) optical zoom and a host of other features that make it an attractive option for those who want great features in a small package.

Update Apr. 4, 2007: DPReview’s new review of the TZ3.
A great range for 1.5x crop-factor sensors, the Tokina 50-135 f/2.8 fits right in where the 70-200 range used to be on 35mm SLRs. I love my Sigma 70-200 f/2.8, but sometimes I sure wish I could get that extra 20mm that this new Tokina offers. Check out Popular Photography’s review of this new lens. Also, note that Sigma’s got a similar lens with their little brother to my beloved 70-200, the Sigma 50-150 f/2.8 EX HSM.
