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.

From Joby:
 
New Pro Sling Strap lets professional photographers shoot then secure their camera instantly and safely even in the most active situations.
 
SAN FRANCISCO, October 24, 2013 Building on the success of its UltraFit Sling Strap, JOBY introduces the Pro Sling Strap for professional photographers. With its patent-pending SpeedCinch pulley system, the Pro Sling Strap length dynamically adjusts, letting photographers quickly secure their DSLR camera in one moment and shoot in the next. Made with the highest-quality custom textiles, the Pro Sling Strap continues JOBY’s focus on marrying design and engineering to create innovative products.
 
The feature that sets the Pro Sling Strap apart from other camera slings is its SpeedCinch pulley system, which lets pro photographers secure their camera close to their body to keep it safe and then instantly deploy it to take a shot. SpeedCinch has two modes: a fast-cinch mode for instant deployment and a locked mode where photographers can run, hike or bike without putting their DSLR in harm’s way. For additional peace of mind, the Pro Sling Strap also comes with a camera tether.
 
"Many photographers, even pros, settle for stock camera straps which can be uncomfortable, bulky and unsafe," said Michael Jue, director of product design at JOBY. "We don’t think a $4,000 camera should just hang on your shoulder like a messenger bag. Today’s pro photographers shoot in more crowded, dynamic settings and need a camera strap that not only protects their camera, but also deploys quickly to capture the shot as it happens."
 
To build the Pro Sling Strap, JOBY searched globally for materials with the right combination of weight, size and durability. Using computer-controlled looms, JOBY created a custom textile for this new shoulder strap. The Pro Sling Strap compresses to a tiny footprint in a camera bag but is still extremely durable and supple. "As soon as photographers touch our camera strap, they’ll feel the research and design that sets it apart," said Fred Polito, JOBY designer.
 
Retailing at $69.99 (US MSRP), the JOBY Pro Sling Strap is available in S-L and L-XXL sizes. JOBY camera straps are available for purchase at popular photography retailers and consumer electronics stores.
 
Adorama carries the Joby Pro Sling Strap (S-L).
