One of the most appealing booth at the Photokina 2006 is that of Canon where they have displayed its horde of imaging products. Well, we are to talk about the Canon lenses. From the very launch of the EOS camera systems, Canon has rolled out notable number of 30 million interchangeable EF lenses. At present, there are more than 50 models of EF lenses that have a focal length varying from 14mm to 600mm along with an array of macro, tilt/shift, fisheye and Image Stabilizer models. The Canon’s L series RF lenses are quite a name among the professional photographers.
While the Canon revealed a flock of lenses at the Photokina, Zeiss also tried to steal the charm by showcasing four new Zeiss ZF lenses for the Nikon F Mount. The four new lenses displayed are: Zeiss Distagon T* 2/35 ZF -Full 35mm frame -Wide-angle coverage and swift speed -Detailed scenic capture Zeiss Distagon T* 2,8/25 -Full 35mm frame -High-quality sharpness and wide-angle close-ups -Excellent for outdoor photography ZEISS Makro-Planar T* 2/50 ZF -A ‘floating element’ optical system -High-quality focus ZEISS Makro-Planar T* 2/100 ZF -Outstanding optical performance for still images -Unparalleled picture clarity -Selective focus. Both the Zeiss Distagon T* 2/35 ZF and the Zeiss Distagon T* 2,8/25 are priced at €699. The ZEISS Makro-Planar T* 2/50 ZF will cost €899 while the ZEISS Makro-Planar T* 2/100 ZF will set you back €1399.
Remember the heftily-priced Leica M8 digicams, which were recalled earlier owing to some glitches. Well, the company has now released a firmware update, which they claim to solve the problem of M8′s high sensitivity to infrared light. Initially, Leica offered UV/IR filter for all lenses to sort out the problem but that led to the tribulations with the color cast of wide-angle lenses from 16-35mm. The new firmware upgrade is claimed to address this very problem. What else can we say other than ‘Better late than never.’ Via: Adorama
