When posting my latest image to Flickr, I noticed that the EXIF shows that I took the image using the Zeiss Milvus 50mm f/1.4 lens.
 
Sigma 50mm f 1.4 Art Misidentified as Zeiss Milvus 50 f 1.4 Lens

However, the image was actually taken using the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens.
 
"Hmm...," I thought to myself, "We have a problem here."
 
I did a little investigating and traced the incorrect lens identification bug back to the latest version of Adobe Camera RAW (v.9.3.1). It seems that ACR is misidentifying images taken with the Sigma 50mm Art. This bug will be especially problematic for those who use automatic lens profile corrections when importing RAW images into both Adobe Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC as the wrong lens profile will be applied.
 
To counteract the issue, when using the Sigma 50mm Art be sure to manually choose the Sigma 50mm f1.4 DG HSM A014 lens profile from the drop down list if a correction profile is desired. Also note that images saved and converted by Photoshop will display the incorrect lens in the EXIF even if no lens profile correction is applied.
 
Update: Adobe has let us know that they are aware of the issue and that it will be fixed in the next release of Adobe Camera RAW.

I actually held onto this press release for a few days hoping a better version of it would surface (the release looks like it was authored in another language and run through Google Translate). Unfortunately, a more eloquent version never appeared. [Sean]
 
DECEMBER 28, 2015 – Kenko Tokina Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce the new AT-X 14-20 F2 PRO DX.
 
Characteristics
 
The fast F2.0 Zoom lens of Tokina
Since the maximum aperture of F2.0 is given this lens, it's possible to support the low sensitivity photography used ISO64 and ISO100 setting. The maximum aperture of F2.0 shows its power for the photography using the blur feeling and photography with the low brightness (In the room, In the night).
 
Adopt highly precise Plastic Aspherical lens
The 2nd lens group in this lens is adopted the plastic aspherical lens which improved surface accuracy, and is given antireflection coat. This lens is designed tough against ghost flare.
 
Arrange highly precise Glass molded Aspherical lens
2 pieces of super low dispersion glass molded aspherical lens is located in the back goup of the lens, and various aberration are corrected by these lenses.
 
Compact Body and Excellent Operability
Tokina’s exclusive One-touch Focus Clutch Mechanism allows the photographer to switch between AF/MF simply by sliding the focus ring, forward side for AF and back toward the camera for MF. This lens is designed as the fast aperture F2.0 in all focal range, but it is a compact body. This lens has a thread in the front frame, so it’s possible to attach filters of 82mm size.

Happy New Year from Bryan and me! I hope everyone had an enjoyable and memorable New Year’s Eve gathering with friends and family. With each new year, we have the opportunity look back at what we've accomplished in the previous year while also looking forward to what we want to accomplish in the year ahead.
 
With that in mind, we want to know – What are you focusing on this year? (pun intended)
 
We want to know about your photography goals for 2016. Are you going to attempt an up-until-now unexplored branch of photography like landscapes, architecture, portraiture, or macro? Or is it your goal to refine and hone your skills to become a recognized master in your already-chosen specialty?
 
Do you want to check off some of your bucket list locations and travel to far-flung destinations? Or do you want to concentrate your efforts on documenting family events, immortalizing a child's growth and youthful exuberance? Maybe your goal is to shoot more, possibly even every day?
 
As for me, my goal is to use my photography equipment to complete more video projects this year. With that in mind, I have purchased a Tascam DR-40 to augment my audio recording capabilities and I'm planning on getting a DJI Phantom 3 in the not-so-distant future. We'll see how that goes...
 
So, what is your focus for 2016? Let us know in the comments.
