Canon and Microsoft Logos
From PC Mag:
 
Microsoft said the deal covers patents for digital imaging and mobile consumer products, among other things.
 
Canon is the latest company to ink a patent licensing deal with Microsoft.
 
The deal provides Microsoft and Canon with access to licenses for each other’s patent portfolios. Exact terms were not disclosed, but Microsoft said the agreement covers a broad range of products and services each company offers, including certain digital imaging and mobile consumer products.
 
“This collaborative approach with Canon allows us to deliver inventive technologies that benefit consumers around the world,” Nick Psyhogeos, general manager and associate general counsel of the IP Licensing of the Innovation and Intellectual Property Group at Microsoft, said in a statement. “Microsoft believes cooperative licensing is an effective way to accelerate innovation while reducing patent disputes.”
 
The two companies have worked together before. In 2009, Microsoft said that Canon was among the first firms to sign up for a licensing program for its Extended File Allocation Table (exFAT) technology.
 
Microsoft said it has now inked more than 1,100 patent licensing deals since its IP licensing program started in Dec. 2003. Many of the headlines surrounding that program have focused on Microsoft’s efforts to license its Android-related patents (Yes, Android).

Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Lens
From JerseyShooter's Blog:

"Once in a while, when you are ready to resign things to being just the way they are and give up, the planets align, the clouds part, and the gods smile down, making everything right again. Well, perhaps I’m exaggerating a bit. However, my initial testing of the new firmware Version 1.01 for the Canon mount Sigma 120-300 f2.8 “Sports” lens is complete and things are looking good.
 
To briefly recap, my issue with the lens and original Version 1.00 firmware was basically two-fold. First, despite all sixteen adjustable focus points available in the Sigma Optimization Pro software being perfectly calibrated using the USB dock, the lens would badly front-focus in between the 200mm and 300mm settings. Second, the lens required completely different Optimization Pro focus parameter settings for the 1D Mark III and 1D Mark IV compared to Canon’s other bodies like the 7D, 5D Mark II and 50D. This meant my lens was either “set up” to work with my 1D bodies, or my other bodies, but never ALL my camera bodies at once. I began my testing with a very methodical approach. I needed to find out first if the new firmware fixed the issue of the different parameter requirements for the different bodies. I also wanted to get a baseline to see how different my new Optimization Pro setting would be from my old ones, and I wanted to do it for all my different camera models."

From the looks of post, JerseyShooter is quite impressed by the new firmware. Check out his full post for all the details.

Canon EF 1300mm f/5.6 L USM Lens
eBay seller "ala2200" has posted an auction for a Canon EF 1200mm F/5.6 L USM lens (review). (thanks Matt)
 
Right now the top bid is only $2,025.00 – and that's especially reasonable considering the used value of the lens is upwards of $100K+.
 
Caveat Emptor: While the seller has a good feedback rating, it's not someone we're familiar with and the listing appears a bit suspect. We suggest proceeding with extreme caution when purchasing expensive gear from unknown sources.
 
Update: The auction listing has been removed.
