Dear members,

we are installing today a few addons. To be able to get them to work we will have to change slightly the subdomainname for the forum.

The main domain name stays untouched. Only the subdomain name, which covers our Hasselblad Forum...
Hasselblad announced the world’s first compact mirrorless digital medium format camera!

50MP CMOS Medium Format Sensor • 725g • New Lens Range • WiFi & GPS • ISO up to 25,600 • Shutter speed 1/2000 sec • Dual Card Slots • Phocus 3.1 • HD Video • And more...

Feel free to discus this news in our Hasselblad forum (formerly
Tamron had already a teaser for 2 new lenses for this CP+ show next week. But nobody knew which lenses this will be. Now it leaked. The lenses will be:

Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD and
Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di MACRO 1: 1 VC USD

with mounts for Canon, Nikon und Sony.

In addition to the Sigma Art telezoom, Sigma will also announce a successor of the well known 30/1.4 (APS-C) lens. It will be a lens from the Contemporary line, no Art line, which is good for the wallet :)

Specification so far:

  • Lens design: 9 elements in 7 groups (double-sided aspherical lens high refractive index and high dispersion glass)
  • Aperture blades: 9 (circular aperture)
  • Filter Size: 52mm
  • AF motor: stepping motor
  • Shortest focusing distance: 30cm
  • Inner focus...
Sigma will announce 2 new lenses next week for the CP+ show. Oe of them will be a telezoom from the Art series: Sigma 50-100/1.8 DC HSM Art. I guess again for the Canon, Nikon and Pentax mount.

The disadvantages of this big aperture are the filter size of 82mm, the weight of 1490g and the price of around 1.400$

Announcement Merry Christmas!
Dear members,

we wish you a Merry Christmas and a peaceful Christmas season with your friends and families.
