Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro Lens
Right now, you can take advantage of a $300.00 instant rebate and free shipping on the Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro Lens (image quality) at Adorama – now just $669.00. Regularly $969.00.
 
For those looking to enjoy photography in the winter months without actually venturing into the cold, setting up a small indoor macro studio is a great idea (it doesn't take much room).
 
I photographed the inside of a red bell pepper this past winter using a macro lens. I fired a flash through the pepper's slightly transparent outer shell to give the inside an ominous, glowing look. The outer shell imparted the rich red color seen on the inside of the bell pepper. I used a red gel on a second flash raked across the top white area of the pepper to open up the shadows and match the color found on the inside.

BigValueInc Logo
By Sean Setters
 
Having had a good experience with BigValueInc when purchasing a 5D Mark III on a previous occasion, I decided to purchase another popular item from the discount eBay retailer – a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens. BigValueInc runs sales on this particular lens quite often (at considerable savings), and I wanted to see what one could expect from a purchase of one of their EF 24-105s.
 
The lens was purchased on December 2 via a deal we posted the previous day. I received a shipping notice later that evening.
 
As with my previous purchase, BigValueInc shipped the item via UPS instead of FedEx (even though FedEx was clearly stated in the auction). And, just as last time, this unannounced change in shippers didn't matter to me. However, some people may prefer one shipper over the other and dislike the unexpected change, so it's something to be aware of.
 
The package I received arrived in a plain box in good condition. Inside the outer box was a white box that contained the 24-105mm lens with caps, lens hood, and and soft lens pouch (you can see the lens pouch stuffed inside the styrofoam used to secure the lens). Note: This lens came with one of Canon's new center-pinch lens caps. Nice! But, no actual warranty card was included.

As expected, the packaging looks like BigValueInc simply took the lens right out of a 5D III kit. My hunch is that we received a lens that was originally packaged with one of the 5D III's sold for $2,445.00 on Black Friday. That would explain the white box and lack of dedicated warranty card (as the warranty card likely went with the camera).
 
My initial evaluation of the lens has been good. It works just as I would expect it to. I was also able to register the lens with Canon USA.
 
In conclusion, I had another relatively good experience with BigValueInc. I've never had to deal with BigValueInc in regards to returning an item, but I fear things may not go as smoothly with a return compared to more estabilished retailers such as Adorama, Amazon & BuyDig.com. Based on my experiences, though, I wouldn't be afraid to pull the trigger on an exceptional deal.
 
That said, with Adorama's significant deals as of late, BigValueInc's low-price advantage is becoming a little less relevant when it comes to choosing a retailer for lens purchases.

DxO Logo
From DxO:
 
December 4, 2013 – DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO Optics Pro v9.1 for Mac and Windows, an update of its image processing software for all demanding photographers. DxO Optics Pro v9.1 enhances its revolutionary PRIME denoising technology that restores the finest details in images even at the very highest sensitivities; provides support for eight new cameras; integrates the features of new DxO FilmPack v4.5 in plugin mode; and includes a new Export to Facebook option.
 
Even more spectacular images
DxO Optics Pro v9.1’s PRIME (Probabilistic Raw IMage Enhancement) technology has been enhanced to obtain an even more detailed rendering, particularly at high ISO. Textures and details are better preserved, and noise is eliminated more efficiently.
 
A DxO Labs’ exclusive denoising technology, PRIME, has been designed to achieve unrivaled image quality. Its algorithms analyze the structure of RAW images in depth: for each pixel, nearly a thousand neighboring pixels are studied in order to identify similarities and to reconstruct information. This unusual denoising produces spectacular results: details, color saturation (particularly in dark zones), and textures are preserved for a natural-looking rendering.
 
With PRIME denoising technology, DxO Optics Pro 9 offers a gain in image quality of up to one stop beyond the best noise reduction algorithms currently available on the market.
 
Support for new cameras and new DxO Optics Modules available
DxO’s laboratories calibrate the most recent equipment on the market. This means that DxO Optics Pro v9.1 supports the following eight new cameras: the Sony Alpha 7R (Elite edition only) and the Olympus OM-D E-M1 (Elite edition only); the Nikon D5300, the Pentax K-500, the Canon PowerShot G16 and PowerShot S120, the Panasonic Lumix GX-7, and the Sony NEX-5T.
 
DxO Optics Pro v9.1 also benefits from the addition of new DxO Optics Modules: nearly 500 new camera/lens combinations round out the library, which now contains more than 16,000 available modules. Developed in the lab, these modules contain exhaustive information about the characteristics of each camera and lens so as to automatically correct distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, and lens softness (lack of edge-to-edge sharpness) with an unmatched level of quality.
 
Faster display for greater productivity
DxO Optics Pro v9.1 is now faster for greater user comfort. Images now display instantly, facilitating sorting and speeding up photographers’ workflow.
 
All the creativity of DxO FilmPack v4.5 applied to RAW images
With DxO FilmPack in plugin mode (and thus without quitting the DxO Optics Pro interface), photographers can give their photos a unique look by directly applying to their RAW images the characteristics of any of dozens of analog films, as well as numerous filters, tonings, and visual effects — all of which they can customize in an infinite number of ways.
 
Integrating the latest features of DxO FilmPack v4.5, DxO Optics Pro v9.1 offers two additional new analog films – the legendary Agfa Scala 200x and Kodak Ektar 100 – as well as new Designer renderings and enhanced frame and light leak tools.
 
New Export to Facebook option
DxO Optics Pro v9.1’s new Export to Facebook option lets users share their photos via the popular social network. Photographers can publish their photos directly from RAW images, with processing and uploading combined into a single operation.
 
Availability and prices
The Standard and Elite editions of DxO Optics Pro 9 for Mac and Windows are now available at photo resellers at a special discount price through December 25, 2013:

  • DxO Optics Pro 9 Standard Edition: $99 instead of $169
  • DxO Optics Pro 9 Elite Edition: $199 instead of $299

Adorama carries DxO Optics Pro 9 and DxO FilmPack 4.
