Gear Review: Sony Zeiss 16-35mm Vario-Tessar FE F/4 ZA OSS E-Mount Lens

The Sony Zeiss 16-35mm Vario-Tessar f/4 is a zoom lens built for Sony’s full frame mirrorless camera lineup. Featuring a wide angle zoom range, a weather resistant solid metal build, and optical image stabilization, the Sony 16-35mm is a dream come true for travel photographers. I recently took this lens with me to Iceland as my only option, and will detail my experience in this review.

Gear Review: Neewer (Meike) 35mm f/1.7 Manual Focus Prime Lens

At around $130, the Neewer 35mm is a tempting alternative to Sony’s $450 35mm offering. The two key features that account for the $300+ price difference is a lack of auto-focus and image stabilization on the Neewer 35mm. The Neewer 35mm is a lens that punches well above it’s weight though, providing impressive build quality, optics, and performance at the $130 price point.

Gear Review: The iPhone 7 for Hiking and Travel

When the first iterations of the iPhone were released, the camera performance left a lot to be desired. With the latest version of the iPhone 7, there aren’t too many situations that leave me wishing I had packed my Sony a6000. I’ve had my iPhone 7 since it was released in 2016. Over the past few months, I’ve been able to test it in full and will share my experience in this review.
