The Online Photographer - Tue, 11/24/2015 - 07:30
It was before my time, really, but film SLRs in the "MMM" (metal, manual, mechanical) era used to come with a "standard lens" which was usually a moderate-fast 50mm. This was eventually replaced with an inexpensive normal or standard zoom,... Michael Johnston

Like its predecessor, it couples a full-frame sensor with a fast, wide-angle prime, but this time it's equipped with a 42.2MP chip to complement its 35mm F2 lens. We were pretty darn excited to get outdoors with the RX1R II and see what it can do. Read more
