New from Olympus : 17mm f1.8

Olympus has added to their Micro Four Thirds family of lenses the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 17mm f1.8 lens (34mm in 35mm equivalent).

This high quality, compact lens features a metal body and a Snapshot Focus mechanism for pan focusing with a distance indicator.
 
The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 17mm f1.8 has an advanced optical system featuring three aspherical lenses, including a Dual Super Aspherical element to correct aberrations, as well as a High Refractive index lens to correct high spherical aberrations. Olympus’ exclusive ZERO (ZUIKO Extra-low Reflection Optical Coating) lens coatings are applied to the elements to reduce lens flare and ghost images even when shooting against the light.

The Snapshot Focus mechanism lets users easily take blur-free images by shifting the focusing point to a specific distance. Sliding the focus ring back reveals range markings on the lens barrel, including distance and depth of field scales, which can be used as guides as the user adjusts the focal distance by rotating the ring.
 
With a total length of just 1.4 inches, the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 17mm f1.8 is incredibly compact. The lens also employs Olympus’ proven MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) autofocusing mechanism for fast and quiet focusing.

The Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 17mm f1.8 Lens will be available in December for $499.99

75 Million Nikkors!

Nikon Corporation reached an amazing milestone this month : seventy-five million NIKKOR lenses produced for Nikon interchangeable lens cameras.

Nikon (then Nippon Kogaku K.K.) released its first NIKKOR lens for Nikon SLR cameras, the NIKKOR-S Auto 5cm f/2, in 1959 along with its first SLR camera, the Nikon F. Since releasing that first lens many years ago and establishing the NIKKOR tradition, Nikon has expanded its lineup of interchangeable lenses, recently adding a line of interchangeable lenses for the Nikon 1 cameras and bringing total production to an amazing seventy-five million.

Newly Designed Lens Caps from Canon


Canon’s newly-designed Mark II center pinch lens caps, incorporate a hook mechanism in the center of the cover, as opposed to the sides. Simply pinching the hook allows users to quickly remove and replace caps, especially handy when using lens hoods. The re-designed lens caps will start to be rolled out across Canon’s entire EF lens range from the beginning of January 2013, and will also be available to buy separately.
