Dpreview: Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM Art Lab Test Review Apr 17, 2014
Dpreview: Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM Art Lab Test Review
Andy Westlake at dpreview.com just posted a Lab Test Review for the new Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art.

Here is an excerpt:

"From the lab test results, the Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art goes a long way to living up the high expectations that have been placed on it. Indeed it's one of the best-performing lenses of its type, bettered only by the much-more expensive Zeiss Otus 1.4/55 - and even then, not by all that much."

Profoto B1 Firmware Adds TTL Metering for EOS 1D X Mar 31, 2014
Profoto B1 Firmware Adds TTL Metering for EOS 1D X
Profoto releases the first firmware upgrade for the B1 off-camera flash and the AirTTL system, enabling TTL metering with Canon EOS-1D X.

When launched in November 2013, the Profoto B1 off-camera flash caused such a buzz in the photographic community that the company’s website crashed. The B1 was the world’s first cordless monolight with TTL. The words “game changer” have appeared in reviews and forums ever since.

The TTL metering is made possible with Profoto’s patent-pending AirTTL system. Already at launch Profoto promised to continuously update the AirTTL system. One of the most frequently requested features is TTL metering with Canon’s flagship model: the Canon EOS-1D X. Today, this feature is made available free of charge through an easily installed firmware upgrade.
