Writers, after finishing a manuscript, are told to stick it in a drawer for 6 months and ignore it, so that when they do finally pull it out, they can review it with fresh eyes. It’s a good practice, and one that I’m going to start applying to the reviews I do here. You’ll find that many of my past equipment articles now have a section at the bottom: After further reflection.
You’re not likely to find me doing a complete 180-degree flip (although I suppose it’s possible). But what you can expect is a second, more seasoned opinion. It’s all too easy to be enamored with a lens right out of the box, only to grow disappointed with it later. Or, conversely, to poorly rank a feature that you later decide is useful after all. Hindsight is 20/20.
I’ve decided to include this for the same reason that I do the reviews in the first place – so that hopefully someone else can benefit from my experiences, good and bad. Hopefully you find it useful!
Below is a partial list of reviews that I’ve updated:
