IRIX 150mm f/2.8 MACRO 1:1 lens additional coverage

The new Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 lens for Nikon F-mount will start shipping in December – the current date listed at the B&H pre-order page is December 26th. Some more information on the new lens ( see also this post ): Irix 150mm f/2.8 is a modern and versatile macro telephoto lens designed for full-frame high-resolution DSLR cameras. Its fast aperture of f/2.8 facilitates shorter exposure times, while its moderately long focal length of 150mm provides an excellent compromise between the narrow viewing angle desired in macro, advertising and portrait photography, and the convenience of hand-held photography.

Nikon at the 2018 PhotoPlus Expo

Some photos and videos from the Nikon booth at the 2018 PhotoPlus Expo: Nikon changed their booth this year. Instead of glass cabinets where you had to vie with everyone else to ask a Nikon staffer to see a given camera and lens, they set up most of the booth like an Apple Store with Parsons tables

More Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lens reviews: First, check this 500mm f/5.6 blog post by Bruce Leventhal (a full guest post is coming soon). “The extra stop of light afforded by the AF-S 500mm f/4E FL ED VR will appeal to some, but if you’re shooting with one of Nikon’s latest full-frame DSLRs, cranking up the ISO by a stop to achieve the same shutter speed with the AF-S 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR isn’t that big of a deal.” ( Techradar ) “When I was told the lens I was testing was a 500mm 5.6 I started to think about hitting the gym before the shoot
