Attirée par les contrées lointaines, Emilie Chaix réalise des reportages autour du globe pour les magazines dédiés aux voyages et à la découverte du monde.

Super Telephoto Zooms

Matthew Richards tests eight long telephoto zoom lenses that really go the distance

SuperTZ01The Contenders:
Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM
Nikon AF-S 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR
HD Pentax D FA 150-450mm f/4.5-5.6 ED DC AW
Sigma APO 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 DG OS HSM
Sigma150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM | C
Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM | S
Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6 G SSM II
Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD

SuperTZ02 SuperTZ03 SuperTZ04 SuperTZ05The Sporty Sigma Takes Top Spot
Sigma’s new 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM S wins out
Sigma’s 150-600mm S-class lens is the new champion of reasonably priced super-telephoto zooms. It’s packed with high-end features, has excellent handling characteristics and delivers superb image quality. Indeed, image quality is better than from other lenses on test at focal lengths of around 300-400mm, and also beats that of the Sigma C-class and Tamron 150-600mm lenses in the extended 400-600mm range. The only catch is that it’s about 50 per cent heavier than some lenses in the group– and nearly twice the weight of others.The Canon 100-400mm and Nikon 80-400mm lenses are very good performers but lack the extra reach of the 150-600mm lenses, and they’re more expensive to buy. The Pentax is another classy lens with some exotic features but it’s a bit lacking in sharpness, and there aren’t yet any full-frame Pentax D-SLR bodies to make the most of its full-sized image circle. The Sony 70-400mm isn’t quite as sophisticated as the Pentax, but proved a little sharper at both ends of the zoom range. It’s directly supported by the A99 full-frame body and other A-mount APS-C format cameras,and can be used with Sony E-mount bodies via an adaptor. In the budget stakes, it’s a close call between the Sigma C-class and Tamron SP 150-600mm lenses. They’re both very similar in size, weight and image quality, but the feature set of the Sigma is a little more advanced, making it better value at the price.

Explorer le LEICA Q avec Alex Habermehl à Copenhague

Alex Habermehl est parti avec le Leica Q, juste avant son lancement : c’est un appareil pour le moment, ou pour un trip photo. Il couvre tout ce qu’on peut attendre d’un appareil avec la qualité que l’on attend de la part d’un Leica.

AlexHabermehl08a AlexHabermehl08b AlexHabermehl08c AlexHabermehl08d AlexHabermehl08eAlex Habermehl was one of the few photographers given the chance to test out the new Leica Q before it was launched. Born in 1975, Habermehl took over a photo studio in Frankfurt after he had finished his training. The photographer chose downtown Copenhagen for the first field trip he took with the Q-System.
