    Industry News: Nikon announces development of the D6 and AF-S Nikkor 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR lens

    Did anyone make note of the fact that the lens announced is the same focal range and f-stop of the now 'venerable' SIGMA 120-300mm f2.8?

    Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM coming in 2020 [CR1]

    So sorry to hear your eye trouble Mel. I will be praying for a successful operation to fix that retina. No fun at all. Had a fellow church member that went through that very same thing a bout 1 year ago. See's doing great now. But it was very nerve-wracking for her for several weeks.

    Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM coming in 2020 [CR1]

    Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM coming in 2020 [CR1]

    You need to understand the market segment that is shrinking. The shrinking segment by far is the consumer market. The Pro market is actually growing (or at the very least, flat). So who is Canon targeting with the early RF lens line-up? Pro's and well-heeled advanced amateurs/hobbyists. People...

    Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM coming in 2020 [CR1]

    You need a M5 or M6 with the EF-M 22mm f2.8. That is your light-weight, hiking/all-day use kit that still provides excellent IQ in a very compact but still 35mm FOV equivalency (on these APS-C bodies).

    And how about a pair of telephotos: RF 100mm f/1.4 and a 135mm f/1.4?

    The Canon EOS M5 Mark II and Canon EOS M6 Mark II are on the way [CR1]

    Yes! This. And I'm quite sure that Sigma would not be taking this step without very good info/assurances (maybe insider, or some tacit private agreement) that Canon would continue to develop and release M-series bodies.

    The Canon EOS M5 Mark II and Canon EOS M6 Mark II are on the way [CR1]

    Coupled with the fact that Sigma is introducing 4 new M-mount lenses soon. Remember that CR bit from a couple weeks ago...?

    Sky’s the limit: Luminar 4 introduces the first automatic Sky Replacement technology

    I would like Skylum or some company to introduce an AI tool to remove people from images. It's exceedingly hard these days to get 'clutter-free' images of the various waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge (especially on the Oregon side) without an over-abundance of people in the pictures. A few...

    A Canon RF 16-28mm f/2L USM is coming [CR1]

    Try the new Tamron 35-150mm f/2.8-4.0 VC OSD for FF (35mm equivalent FOV ~ 56-240mm). Or, for (APS-C) crop sensors the Sigma Art 50-100mm f/1.8 (35mm equivalent FOV ~ 80-160mm). Both are very good performers. Caveats: the Sigma has no weather sealing the Tamron does have weather sealing and VC...

    Canon EOS 90D Specification List [CR1]

    I guess I don't get the whole video w/crop factor. For full-frame I can sort of see cropping. But why the need to crop 4K on a crop sensor? Or am I just dense? I'm not much of a video guy.

    IBIS is coming to select next generation Canon DSLRs [CR2]

    I would have zero qualms about taking a Pentax anywhere on the planet. The one exception - a volcano. But then I wouldn't go there either.

    IBIS is coming to select next generation Canon DSLRs [CR2]

    Well, in Olympus models they are fast buggers, shooting-wise, and are built like small tanks. Very rugged, especially the EM-1, EM-1 Mk II, and the new EM-1X. These models have very high frame rates. Of course they are also mirrorless and 4/3d's. The Pentax models are also built like tanks with...
