Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS Tear-Down and Imatest Jul 31, 2014
Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS Tear-Down and Imatest
Roger Cicalla at LensRentals.com teared down the newly released Canon 16-35mm f/4L IS lens. The article called:
Of Course We Took One Apart, shows improvement in weather sealing design and engineering.

Here is an excerpt:
"Now that Ive seen the insides Im very optimistic that this lens will be less likely to deteriorate optically over time, and will be more easily corrected when it does. We wont know for sure until weve got a years experience with it, of course, but from a design and assembly standpoint it looks really, really good."

In another blog article, Roger compares Canon's super wide angle lenses. The new EF 16-35mm f/4L IS is the best performing ultra wide angle from Canon currently. See the results.

B&H Photo has limited stock of the EF 16-35mm f/4L IS with free expedited shipping within the USA.

Nikon D810: The New DxOMark Full Frame Leader Jul 25, 2014
Nikon D810: New DxOMark full frame leader
DxOmark just posted their review on the new Nikon D810 SLR. It's very likely it uses the same D800E and Sony A7r sensors but Nikon has managed to squeeze even better performance. It's currently the new Full Frame sensor leader.

Here is an excerpt:
"Overall we could hardly expect a major-breakthrough in a mid-term update like this but it is nonetheless an excellent result. Landscape and Architecture and Interior photographers will welcome the new lower native ISO (now ISO 64) and with it the slight increase in dynamic range. New features, such the electronic second curtain and improved mirror balancer are sensible additions for high resolution captures. Anyone who hesitated over investing in one of the D800 models will likely find the extended capabilities of the Nikon D810 sorely tempting."

Pre-order your D810 SLR today:

New HCam TS Master 14-24mm Jul 22, 2014
New HCam TS Master 14-24mm
HCam TS Master 14-24mm: Tilt and Shift adapter for the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 and Sony A7R.

Features:
  1. 5mm shift bidirectional at 14mm
  2. 10mm shift bidirectional at 18mm
  3. 7mm shift bidirectional at 24mm
From HCam.de:
The quality of the Nikon 14-24mm is well known to be on top of superwideangles, to be compared with the best Zeiss Primes like the 15mm Distagon but with less distortions.

Even shifted and stitched at 14mm you will get about 34x46mm or if used on an HCam-B1 (or an FPS) with an IQ250 a full shot with 14mm focal length.

Parts will be sold separately if needed.
Nikon 14-24mm lenses may be also serviced and modded.
Prices still to be determined. Check out their Facebook page.

Photozone Review: Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS Jul 04, 2014
Photozone Review: Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS
Klaus at Photozone just posted his review on the new Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS.

Here is an excerpt:
"The Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 USM L IS is definitely a step forward for Canon. The lens is capable of delivering an impressive performance throughout most of the range but especially between 16-24mm. The center quality is stellar here and the borders and even corners are sharp." - Read full review
