New products from Nikon, Olympus, and Canon; Budget portrait lenses
This week, we got a raft of product announcements:
- Nikon: 85mm f/1.2 & 26mm f/2.8 pancake lens
- Sigma: 50mm f/1.4 DG DN Art lens for Sony & Leica
- Olympus: 90mm f/3.5 macro
- Canon: R8 & R50 mirrorless cameras
We then took to answer a listener question about using manual focus portrait (and other) lenses on mirrorless cameras via a mount adapter. There are quite a few very good manual focus lenses that are inexpensive, and perform very well on today’s mirrorless cameras, especially if you use focus peaking to assist with focus.
