"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending October 26th, 2013.
 
In the news...
 
On Tuesday, Canon announced the development of firmware updates for the EOS 1D X and 1D C DSLR cameras. The 1D X will receive several AF improvements as well as a feature Bryan’s been requesting for ages – exposure compensation when using Auto ISO.
 
The 1D C firmware update will improve communication between the camera body and EF lenses as well as allow audio recording from Line inputs. The 1D C firmware will be available in November of this year, with the 1D X firmware’s availability scheduled for January 2014.
 
On Wednesday, DxO announced Optics Pro 9. The headline feature in Optics Pro 9 is PRIME denoising. The PRIME algorithm allows Optics Pro 9 to better distinguish between noise and fine details – thereby preserving those details while reducing high ISO noise.
 
DxO allowed me to test drive the software a couple of weeks before its release. I must say, I was quite impressed with Optics Pro 9’s overall user experience in addition to its PRIME noise reduction. DxO Optics Pro 9 is available now at photography retailers.
 
Also on Wednesday, LensRentals announced the first annual Photogeek Geek Photo Contest. A few of the categories include Sharpest Corner, Bokehliciousness & Largest Number of Accessories Between the Lens and the Camera. If that sounds a bit odd to you, then you should really check out the prizes as well! And while you’re on the LensRentals Blog, check out a familiar name in the judges list.
 
On Friday, one of the biggest questions regarding the Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM lens was finally answered – its price. The lens will carry an MSRP of $899.00 and will be available in November.
 
In site news and reviews...
 
On Wednesday, Bryan posted his full review of the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens. The lens proved to be a significant upgrade to its predecessor – especially in the areas of autofocus and image quality. For the entry-level price, this lens turns in surprisingly good results. Check out Bryan’s full review for all the details.
 
And, for our deals of the week…
 
On Monday, BigValueInc posted two incredibly good deals on eBay. First, the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM for $639.99. Second, the 5D Mark III for only $2,549.99. Both deals featured free shipping and significant savings compared to traditional retail price.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"

Sigma 24-105mm F/4 DG OS HSM Lens
From Sigma:
 
Versatile and stabilized standard zoom lens starts shipping in November for street price of $899
 
NEW YORK, NY — Oct. 25, — Sigma Corporation of America, a leading researcher, developer, manufacturer and service provider of some of the world's most impressive lines of lenses, cameras and flashes, today from PhotoPlus Expo 2013 announced the pricing and availability of its new 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM Art lens.
 
This new Art lens was developed as part of the company’s Global Vision and will be on shelves next month, starting with Canon mounts, for the street price of $899. The full frame lens, which will also work with APS-C sensor cameras with an effective increase in focal length, will be available in Nikon and Sigma mounts in December, and Sony mounts will soon follow. All but the Sony mounts will incorporate Sigma’s proprietary Optical Stabilizer (OS) technology to compensate for camera shake. This functionality is omitted from Sony mounts to accommodate for that manufacturer’s in-camera image stabilization system.
 
The 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM covers the basic shooting range from wide to medium tele with an inner focusing system that eliminates front lens rotation, enhancing the lens stability and allowing the use of circular polarizing filters. Moreover, it was designed to surpass the required quality inspection of every Global Vision lens with Sigma’s own modulation transfer function (MTF) “A1” measuring system to create a new optical standard to align with the high-spec cameras on today’s market.
 
“This is a top-notch lens in its design and image quality. Our engineering team in Japan continues to wow the industry with the caliber of the new lenses we’re producing and we expect Sigma users to be just as pleased with this new 24-105 F4,” said Mark Amir-Hamzeh, president of Sigma Corporation of America.
 
The lens offers the largest possible fixed aperture to zoom ratio that will maintain optimal integrity for many kinds of photography, including landscapes, architecture, portraiture and still-life. With a minimum focusing distance of 45cm and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:4.6, this lens is also excellent for close-up photography.
 
High-performance glass elements, including SLD and FLD, which is equal to fluorite, and glass-molded single- and double-sided aspheric lenses have been included into the optical system to prevent aberration, field curvature, distortions and color aberration. The 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM lens is also able to suppress chromatic aberration very effectively at the telephoto-end, and can achieve superior image quality throughout the zoom range. Unlike lenses with similar specifications, this lens overcomes low peripheral brightness. Although it is designed for full frame cameras, it also works with APS-C sensors, giving an increase to focal length.
 
The lens’ Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) ensures a silent, high-speed auto focus function and enables full-time manual focusing capability. The 24-105mm is also compatible with Sigma’s USB dock allowing photographers to update its firmware and change focus parameters using Sigma's Optimization Pro software. It is also compatible with Sigma’s recently announced Mount Conversion Service.
 
Adorama has the Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM Lens for Canon available for preorder.
