Meet our new model – Sara

I am proud to welcome Sara, beautiful professional model in the Verybiglobo family. Sara should help us to make our field lens and camera tests more exciting but also more controlled. Sara wasn't cheap, it cost me most of my savings and I made a rookie mistake by ordering outfits that are too small :-(…

Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D on Sony A7, user review

Laowa 12/2.8 Zero-D is one of the most anticipated lenses in my book, since it covers ultra wide angle yet without optical distortion (ZERO-D). Few months ago, I was able to briefly try it on Photokina 2016 and I made a short "hands on" review - http://www.verybiglobo.com/laowa-12mm-f2-8-and-laowa-15mm-f2-2-uwa-lenses-from-venus-optics-with-close-to-zero-distortion/, where you can find specification and sample shots.…

Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 Hands-On (Photokina 2016)

I already published Loxia 85/2.4 hands-on in the Photokina coverage article, but it deserves its dedicated space, so here it is, slightly reorganized and with some new content. I had a short interview with Mr. Cristophe Casenave, senior product manager in Zeiss and expert on weather sealing. VBL:Aren't you afraid that Batis and Loxia are…

Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 Review

During our reviews of Zeiss Loxia 21/2.8 and Zeiss Batis 18/2.8, we mentioned several times also Batis 25/2. It was about the time, to give it its own review space and to take a deeper look on its performance. Let’s start with Technical specification (all data belongs to Zeiss a.g. - original link: http://www.zeiss.com/camera-lenses/en_de/camera_lenses/batis/batis225.html) Technical…

Zeiss Batis 18/2.8 Review

To make a complex review as we like to do here, we need to have lens for at least 3 weeks, ideally for much longer. When the new gear comes however, producers can't give as testing samples for so long, thus we can either lower the quality of our tests or wait until it become…

Zeiss Milvus 50/1.4 vs Zeiss Otus 55/1.4 vs Zeiss Planar 50/1.4 – Comparative Lens Review

During testing of three Zeiss 85mm lenses - http://www.verybiglobo.com/zeiss-milvus-851-4-vs-zeiss-otus-851-4-vs-zeiss-planar-851-4-comparative-lens-review-2/2/ we spent some time with their 50(55)mm versions too. Large portion of our findings from already mentioned - 85mm review, can be simply copy pasted here, with exception of Milvus 55/1.4 bokeh, which does show some onion ring effect, because it have aspherical element in its…
