The video explores the 15mm f/2.8, 21mm f/2.8, 25mm f/2, and the 35mm f/1.4 lenses and touches on their practical optical performance, including commentary on their manual-focus design, build quality, and different mounts. Becker also showcases examples of how the lenses perform.
Pentax has released five new K-mount autofocus lenses for its series of APS-C format DSLR cameras.

Panasonic has announced their latest Micro Four Thirds format interchangeable lens mirrorless camera, the Lumix DMC-GX7. The GX7 is the follow-up model to the popular DMC-GX1, which was released in early 2012. The GX7 arrives with several notable upgrades and adjustments as well as the already strong features that will be familiar to any GX1 user.
Rokinon has recently introduced a unique lens, designed specifically for mirrorless cameras, the Reflex 300mm f/6.3 ED UMC CS. This lens pairs well with these generally smaller camera designs in that its main principle, too, is a relatively compact form factor, considering its telephoto-length perspective.
In this second part of our three-part primer on DSLR lenses, Larry Becker, of Kelby Media, discusses basic concepts such as autofocus, filters, and what various sensor sizes mean for the lenses with which you might pair them. (If you've ever wondered what "crop factor" means, this video clears that up.)
Fujifilm has just announced a three-part update to their X Series of mirrorless digital cameras and lenses: the X-M1 digital camera, the XF 27mm f/2.8 lens, and the XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. These additions to the system add even greater breadth to this expanding line of tools.

Rokinon has announced a new 16mm wide-angle manual-focus lens for DSLR and mirrorless cameras in both the APS-C and Micro Four Thirds formats. As a standard wide focal length with an f/2.0 maximum aperture, it is bound to please APS-C and Micro Four Thirds shooters who have been looking for just such a fast and versatile optic.

Sigma has announced a very interesting new fast-aperture zoom lens. The 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens, which is available for Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts, is an APS-C format lens with an exceptionally fast maximum aperture of f/1.8 throughout the zoom range.
The recently introduced Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM lens is the first lens to be part of Sigma’s Global Vision Sports line, and as such, strives to be a highly precise and optically sound lens that can function well in fast-paced situations.

Fujifilm has just announced a new lens for their X series cameras, the XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS. This new lens stands as the longest lens in the current XF lineup and picks up where their first zoom lens, the XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS, leaves off.
