By popular demand: The 10 Sharpest APS-C Lenses for 2019


I decided to launch this lens a few weeks early in order to help people with their Christmas lists! And it’s a video made by popular demand. If you want to see the video about full-frame lenses, here it is:

These are:
1) APS-C lenses I’ve tested (and I mostly test on Canon and Sony gear, and some Fuji lenses (more to come!) so sorry, but no Nikon, Micro 4/3 etc.)…
2) …which cost under £1,000 GBP (approx. $1,300 US)


q) Where is the Sigma 16/30/56mm f/1.4? a) Haven’t tested them yet…although that is due to change soon.

q) Where is my favorite Fuji lens? a) I refer you to my previous answer 😉

q) Why haven’t you tested any Nikon lenses? a) I’ve answered this question many times – it’s basically just a lack of time. I love Nikon equipment but I simply don’t have time to test lenses on every camera system. I had to draw a line somewhere, so in future I’ll be reviewing lenses from all different manufacturers which are available on Canon, Sony and Fuji cameras. I may be reviewing the new Nikon full-frame lenses in the future – I certainly want to – it depends on if I can get the Patreon funds together to hire a Z7 and the lenses.

All pictures and footage shot by me on Canon 60D, 70D, and EOS M3 cameras, and Sony a7R II, a6300 and a5100 cameras.
