With the recent announcement of Zeiss's Milvus line of lenses
, it's no surprise that some of their older lenses would be discontinued. However, if the source is accurate, a few of the discontinued lenses have not been incorporated into the Milvus lineup thus far.
Can we expect to see the 18, 25 and 28mm Milvus lenses in the not-so-distant future or are those particular focal lengths falling by the wayside?
What do you think?
Most of these lenses
(and their Canon equivalents
) currently qualify for instant savings up to $300.00.

From Tamron: Lens Case A011 (Model LA011) A new lens case compatible with SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD (Model A011)
October 8, 2015, Saitama, Japan – Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Morio Ono), a leading manufacturer of optics for a wide range of applications, announces the launch of a lens case compatible with SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD (Model A011). The new lens case will be sold as a separate accessory. Tripod mount ring (long type), an optional accessory for A011 (Model A011TL) A newly-designed optional tripod mount ring for SP 150-600mm VC USD extends the base surface of the tripod mount to improve stability and versatility
In addition to the Model LA011 lens case, Tamron also announces the launch of a tripod mount ring (long type) for SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD (Model A011).
Tamron has designed a new long-type tripod mount ring for its well-received SP 150-600mm VC USD. By comparison with the supplied tripod mount, the new long-type design provides an extended base surface. This extra space not only makes it possible to add a second screw hole for secure mounting, thereby enhancing stability and versatility, but also makes it easier for users to hold the base surface and carry it around. The new mount ring will be sold as a separate accessory. Date of Launch:
October 15, 2015** Both products will be launched first in the Japanese market, with overseas launches to follow. Note:
The long tripod mount ring was originally announced
in February but is now finally set to launch next month. [Sean] B&H

From the Adobe Lightroom Journal:
The Lightroom team wanted to let the community know that we’re investigating some critical performance and crasher bugs, and will be issuing an update shortly to address them.
If you are experiencing crashing or slowdowns, please try the following:
I think it’s important to provide some context to why we made changes to Import.
- Go to Lightroom > Preferences.
- Click on the General tab
- Uncheck “Show ‘Add Photos’ Screen”
- Restart Lightroom
Over the years we’ve done extensive studies of customers interested in Lightroom. The studies have been comprised of people passionate about photography and who use their cameras as a creative outlet. In short, their motivations share the same motivations as people who already love Lightroom.
We visited them in their homes, and asked them to install, launch and use Lightroom. Since this was their first interaction with Lightroom, we were interested in observing specifically where they encountered obstacles, and therefore where we needed to focus our attention.
Customers were universally unable to decipher the Import dialog without getting frustrated. Some people pushed forward, bolstered by spending time searching the web for help. They might have been successful in importing files, but they didn’t feel successful. Others gave up, deciding that Lightroom might not be the right product for them.
The previous Import experience literally made people push back from their computers in frustration. Keeping the existing Import experience isn’t an option, and we needed to evolve the Import experience.
We’ve heard great feedback on the changes, and we’ve always evolved the Lightroom product with feedback from photographers and look forward to continue to evolve the experience going forward with your feedback in mind.
Please keep the feedback coming!
