TTArtisan 21mm f/1.5 lens for Nikon Z, Sony E, Canon R and Leica L

The TTArtisan 21mm f/1.5 lens is now available for Nikon Z, Sony E, Canon R, and Leica L mounts.

Fast and wide, the 21mm f/1.5 from TTArtisan is an ultra-wide prime designed for mirrorless cameras. The broad field of view is complemented by the bright f/1.5 maximum aperture, which excels in low-light conditions as well as for isolating subjects using selective focus techniques. The lens’s manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 2.3′ away and it features a 10-blade diaphragm that contributes to a smooth bokeh quality. Additionally, a lens hood is included that protects the front of the lens as well as reduces stray light from causing flare.

The lens is currently available on Amazon.com and  B&HPhoto ranges from $250 –  $429. Continue reading “TTArtisan 21mm f/1.5 lens for Nikon Z, Sony E, Canon R and Leica L”

Primoplan 58mm F1.9 II Lens for Canon EF, Nikon F, MFT, Pentax K, Sony E, Fuji X, Leica M & L

The Meyer-Optik Gorlitz brand has expanded its range with a new full frame lens – the Primoplan 58mm F1.9 II. As expected, this new lens has been released for various mounts: Canon EF, Nikon F, M42, Pentax K, Sony E, Fujifilm X, Leica L, Leica M, as well as Micro Four Thirds.

The Primoplan 58mm F1.9 II lens is marketed by the manufacturer as a “reborn” version of the original lens, developed by Meyer-Optik designer Paul Schefter 80 years ago. Then this lens became popular due to the extremely high aperture for that time, as well as the ability to create a wide range of bokeh effects – from swirling to “creamy” with small details in a blur.

The manufacturer focuses on the quality of the optics assembly, high-quality color reproduction with high sharpness of the image, and, of course, on the possibility of creating an expressive bokeh effect (see sample images on the Primoplan 58mm f/1.9 II).

Price and availability

The cost of the Primoplan 58mm F1.9 II lens is $899 and it can be purchased via the B&HPhoto website. Here are all updated/new Meyer Optik Görlitz lense. Continue reading “Primoplan 58mm F1.9 II Lens for Canon EF, Nikon F, MFT, Pentax K, Sony E, Fuji X, Leica M & L”

Nikon Releases NX Studio Software That Combines ViewNX-i and Capture NX-D

Nikon has announced the release of NX Studio image. The video editing/viewing software combines the best bits of Nikon’s View NX-i and Capture NX-D software applications in a single piece of software.

The newly released Nikon NX Studio is essentially a replacement for both applications, offering almost every feature of the pair in a single program. Capture NX-D and ViewNX-i will remain available for download, but are unlikely to be updated to add support for new cameras or compatibility with future operating system updates.

Nikon digital camera users can download the software, free of charge, from today and those who currently use View NX-i and Capture NX-D are advised to switch to NX Studio as View NX-i and Capture NX-D will no longer be updated so they’re compatible with the latest OS and new functions won’t be added either.
