Lens reviews on dpreview.com

If you’re looking for in-depth, detailed reviews of cameras, dpreview.com has been pretty much the best resource around for quite a while. Their focus has always been on higher end cameras, particularly DSLRs, so they don’t review every point-and-shoot that comes out, but the cameras they do review are given very thorough coverage. While they offer a lot of useful information on cameras, it used to be the case that their information became less useful once you had bought a camera and were looking to expand your lens selection. However, they’ve changed that. They just started doing lens reviews and they intend to expand this section of the site rapidly in the next few months. This could be a really helpful resource, since lenses are expensive and you want to make sure you’re spending your money well. Right now, they have reviews for two lenses each from Sony, Nikon, Canon, and Pentax, including the most common kit lens for each. Check it out: http://www.dpreview.com/lensreviews/

I’ve looked at a few of the reviews and they have a really sweet interactive display for exploring the sharpness (MTF) and chromatic aberration of the lens as a function of focal length and aperture.  If you’re a photography enthusiast you should really check it out.
