Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM Lens
It has been 2-days short of a year since the last Canon L lens announcement (for the ultra-expensive, but amazing, EF 200-400mm f/4 L IS USM Extender 1.4x Lens), so you are not likely surprised to hear that I have been experiencing ever-increasing new-L-Lens withdrawal symptoms. Well, that anxiety has just been lifted. The long Canon pro gear drought has just ended thanks to the announcement of the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM Lens.
 
The Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM Lens review page contains a preview of the lens including:

With a moderate price tag and an impressive-looking MTF chart, I highly recommend that you preorder this lens immediately at B&H to preserve your place in line. This will likely be a very in-demand lens and has the potential to be hard to get for some time. You can always cancel a preorder, but getting a good place in line is far harder to accomplish later.

Memory Card Cases
That became a pertinent question for me lately as the SDHC/SDXC memory cards I've most recently purchased came without the little plastic case included. While I think the manufacturers should include the inexpensive cases by default, none have yet asked me for my opinion. The other problem is that I've started to accumulate a variety of memory card case sizes that have become at least slightly annoying to deal with.
 
I was looking for something very compact but wanted at least a little protection for the cards. My memory cards are usually kept in other cases or my pocket where they have an additional layer of protection afforded them.
 
For me, the right solution was found on eBay. For $6.95 with free standard shipping, you get 10 small plastic cases just large enough to comfortably hold SDHC cards. I purchased two lots and now have all of my cards neatly stored in much less space than the pre-latest-purchased cards consumed.
 
If you prefer the more protective, larger case size or if you need to store CompactFlash/CF cards, this eBay auction may have the cases you are looking for. Same seller and same price.
 
For more rugged and larger capacity memory card cases, check out B&H's memory card case category. Notable entries include those from Ruggard, Pelican and Think Tank Photo.

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens
Just posted: Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens Review
 
With excellent image quality and great design, this lens becomes the easy 50mm AF lens choice. AF consistency remains this lens' biggest weakness.
 
With the demand this lens is seeing right now, I suspect that the 50 Art is going to be hard to get for some time. Preorder the Sigma 50 Art Lens now at B&H for earliest access.

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens
Image quality, vignetting and distortion test results along with specs/measurements and product images are now available on the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens review page.
 
Here are some direct comparisons you might be interested in:
 
Canon EF 50mm f/1.2 L USM Lens
Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 Lens (at f/1.8)
Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM Lens (not the "Art" version)
Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 Distagon Lens
Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 Planar T* Lens
Zeiss 50mm f/2.0 Makro-Planar T* ZE Lens
 
The Nikon 50mm lens results are also available, but they are captured using a Nikon DX3 vs. the Canon EOS 1Ds III. Use your discernment in making these comparisons.

10 Stop Neutral Density Filter
Just posted: 10 Stop Neutral Density Filter Review
 
Learn what I consider to be the ultimate 10 stop neutral density filter and why.
 
I have a drop-everything review to work on right now, but with a lot of work done on the black filter review, I'm going to turn it loose. These filters are very useful and can easily turn mundane images into impressive ones. I intend to revisit this review with samples pictures and more suggestions.

Canon EOS Rebel T5 / 1200D DSLR Camera
Just posted: Canon EOS Rebel T5 / 1200D DSLR Camera Review
 
While experienced DSLR photographers are not going to find this new camera too drool-worthy, the T5 is a very nice upgrade from the Rebel T3 / 1100D. Highlights include a higher resolution imaging sensor, a larger/higher resolution LCD, significantly improved video capabilities and a rubberized grip surface.

Polyphemus Moth
In the latest tips article to be added to the site, I explain How to Calculate Lens Working Distance.
 
While this distance is easy to calculate with a tape measure or other distance measurement tool, you can also use the site's Lens Specifications and Measurements tool to obtain this information without leaving your seat.
 
Those having read the yesterday-posted Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro Lens Review will recognize the discussed formula.
