Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens
The site's first tested Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens was provided by Sigma. That Sigma could have handpicked a superior lens was questioned, so I picked up a retail copy of this lens to verify the image quality this lens model delivers.
 
The image quality results from the second lens are now included in the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens Review. The first link loads a comparison between the two lenses with the new lens shown on the left (sample "1"). I would say that the second lens is even slightly sharper than the already-impressive first lens. AF consistency for the second lens is the same as the first.
 
Image quality test results from the EOS 60D are also now included for this lens.

FreeFly MoVI's biggest competitor, the DJI Ronin, is set to be available beginning next month. DJI's stabilizer seems to equal FreeFly's in every way except for price – the Ronin can be preordered for only $2,999.00 (compared to $4,995.00 for the MoVI).
 
Only time will tell if the DJI Ronin is as good as the ground-breaking MoVI; the lower price will certainly make the Ronin very alluring for a lot of filmmakers.

Mosquito Bites Black Bear Cub
See the mosquito on this black bear cub's ear? The black bear is at the top of the food chain in Pennsylvania, but that does not mean they don't get bit. Getting bit is certainly going to be on the back of everyone's mind when photographing a bear cub this small as the highly protective mother is guaranteed to be nearby.
 
A mother bear nearby makes the zoom capabilities of the Canon EF 200-400 f/5.6 L IS Lens highly desirable. To capture this picture of a tiny cub required use of the built-in extender for 560mm of focal length (plus a small amount of cropping). To capture a full body portrait of the much larger mother (with or without cubs in the frame) required a wider focal length. Bears are very unpredictable and may not have tolerated (or stayed long enough for) a lens change. The 200-400 L lets me work fast, capturing the ideal framing potential from the situation.
 
This was a very productive bear session (and not the same as the recently shared bear picture was captured during). I'll try to share a few more shots from this encounter with you soon.
