    Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.4E ED Announcement

      News

    Nikon has just presented a prime, wide-angle AF-S Nikkor 28mm f/1.4E ED lens, which can work with both FX and DX sensors. The lens is a perfect choice for both portrait and landscape photography and, as the producer assures, that lens reproduces the natural expansion of a space.

    The lens consists of 14 elements placed in 11 groups, including two lenses made of ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass, and three aspherical ones.

    The lens is equipped with a 9-blade aperture, thanks to which it should create beautiful bokeh.

    A well-known Silent Wave Motor (SWM) is responsible for adjusting focus. The lens is also equipped with Rear Focusing System (RF), thanks to which the lenses placed at the rear are the only moving elements so the lens does not change its length during the adjustment of focus. The minimum focus distance is 0.92 ft. (0.28m).

      Samyang AF 35mm f/1.4 FE is a proof that the company has treated the development of the series of lenses with autofocus for full-frame Sony E system very seriously. Three lenses are already available on the market, and the next one has just joined them. Similarly to the previous ones, it has been designed having in mind both enthusiasts and professional photographers, who do not want to spend fortune on the systemic Sony lenses.

      The optical system consisting of 11 elements placed in 9 groups is responsible for image quality. Among the elements, we can find 2 aspherical lenses and 2 high-refractive ones. Some of the lenses are covered with Ultra Multi Coating, which minimizes the emergence of light leaks and lens flares. The used optical system and 9-blade aperture are to generate unique image plasticity with soft blurrings and pleasant bokeh effect.

      The lens is also equipped with an improved autofocus system – LSM (Linear Super sonic Motor), which is supposed to be quieter, faster and more precise. It is also supposed to work in harder lighting conditions.

      The lens weights 645g and possibly does not have any sealings.

      New Samyang, thanks to its minimalist design, is very similar to Sony lenses and it will certainly cooperate with full-frame mirrorless cameras of the producer.

      We don’t know the exact price of the lens yet, but we can expect it to be below $600, so around $1000 less than Sony Distagon T* FE 35mm f/1.40 ZA.

      What Brand of Camera Do You Use?
    • By MICHAEL GABLER
      For the last few weeks, we have been bombarded by the leaks concerning Nikon D850. Today, exactly at midnight EST, Nikon officially showed its newest creation, which proves that reflex cameras can still be innovative. Impressive resolution of 45-megapixel, fast continuous shooting mode, rich movie-making functions – these are the main features of the D850 model presented today.

      In many aspects, the camera presented today does not resemble its predecessor. The camera has undergone improvements practically on every level. As a result, we get a new full-frame BSI CMOS sensor, without a low-pass filter, with impressive resolution of 45.7 million pixels, which is supported by the EXPEED 5 image processor, known from Nikon D5. Thanks to this, we can take photographs within the ISO range of 64–25600 (with a possibility to extend to ISO 32–102400).
       

      1). Nikon D850
       
      Continuous shooting mode also makes a great impression. In D850 we can take photographs with the maximum speed of 7 f/s, with full AF support, and after plugging in MB-D18 battery grip and EN-EL18a/b rechargeable batteries, this speed increases up to 9 f/s. It is worth remembering that the camera has almost 46Mp! What is more, as the producer assures, the camera's buffer will be filled only after taking 51 photographs.

      The camera is also equipped with a totally silent electronic shutter, thanks to which we will be able to take photographs with the speed of 30 f/s. However, in this mode the photographs will be reduced to 8.6-megapixel.
       

      2). Nikon D850
       
      The autofocus is 153-point AF system with the central point's sensitivity up to -4 EV (other sensitive points up to -3 EV). Apart from that, the autofocus is to cover 30% more of the frame than the reporter model D5.

      The camera is also supposed to perfectly fulfil its role during the recording of videos. In D850, we can record movies in 4K (24/25/30p), in full size of the sensor. In addition, we get a range of helpful functions such as zebra patterning or focus peaking. We will also be able to connect headphones and microphone to the D850 model as well as transfer the uncompressed 4K 8-bit 4:2:2 material through HDMI connector. It is also worth adding that we will be able to record time-lapse movies in 4K.
       

      3). Nikon D850
       
      On the back panel, we will find a folding 3.2'' LCD touch screen, with the resolution of 2.36 Mp – known from the D500 model. The camera has two slots for memory cards – one for SD, and the second one for XQD. Of course, we can also find wireless connectivity (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth) as well as use SnapBridge.

      The body of D850 is, of course, fully sealed. The back and upper walls are made of magnesium alloy whereas the front one is made of material. The camera does not have a built-in flash, which significantly improves its impermeability and durability. The buttons, as in the case of other top bodies, are now illuminated.
       

      4). Nikon D850
       
      Nikon D850 is to appear on sale in September. Most interestingly, it will cost about $3300.
