Weekend Recap for Nov. 10 - 16, 2013

"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending November 16th, 2013.
 
In the news...
 
On Wednesday, Canon released firmware updates for the C100 and C300 cinema cameras. The firmware updates included several user-interface improvements as well as expanding the maximum ISO setting and peripheral illumination database. Unfortunately, the firmware updates caused discrepancies in color balance leading to Canon removing them from their site late Thursday. Expect the fixed firmware updates to be available once again very soon.
 
On Thursday, Canon Japan finally introduced the body Asia has been hinting at since late last week – a white Kiss X7 (aka Rebel SL1) with matching special edition EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lens. The camera is set to be available in Japan at the end of this month. Whether or not Canon will be releasing a white SL1 aimed at the North American market is, as of yet, unknown.
 
In site news and reviews...
 
On Tuesday, Bryan posted his full review of the Zeiss 15mm f/2.8 Distagon T* ZE lens. In short, the Zeiss 15mm lens has found a permanent home in Bryan’s landscape lens collection because of its superb image quality, durable build quality, and compatibility with front mounted screw-in filters. See Bryan’s full review for more details.
 
On Thursday, Bryan updated the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4 L IS USM review to address concerns about focus shift. Bryan found the lens does exhibit a rearward focus shift; however, the focus shift is unlikely to cause significant issues for most shooters.
 
And, for our deal of the week…
 
On Tuesday, we posted a deal from Adorama where you could get a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM lens for $1,899.00 with free shipping after $300.00 mail-in rebate. That’s a $300.00 savings off the normal after-rebate price.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"
