"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending August 3rd, 2013
In the news...
On Monday, Canon released firmware updates for three 1-series bodies - the 1D III, 1Ds III, and the 1D Mark IV. While the firmware updates fixed relatively minor issues, their release sheds light on Canon’s long-term commitment to supporting pro-grade bodies well after they’ve been discontinued.
On Thursday, Sigma announced a lens mount conversion service. The new service allows current owners of Sigma’s global vision lenses to return their lenses to Sigma’s service department to have the mounts changed to any other supported camera mount. The service will cost anywhere from $80.00 to $250.00, depending on the lens.
In site news and reviews...
On Tuesday, Bryan published the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens image quality test results. Featuring a wide, constant f/1.8 maximum aperture, solid build quality, and good image quality, Bryan noted, “This lens is looking like another Sigma hit to me.”
And, for our deal of the week…
On Tuesday, we posted a deal from Adorama where you could use a promotion code to get the Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM "Sports" lens for $300.00 off - or $3,299.00 with free shipping.
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"
