  1. Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1, as the very name suggests, has the focal length of 150mm and the 1:1 mapping scale, thanks to which it is to ensure very convenient work during macro photography. Due to the longer focal length, we will be able to avoid covering the light falling on photographed objects and scaring them away. The optical system of the lens is based on twelve lenses placed in nine groups – there are three low-dispersion elements and four made of high-refraction glass. The producer assures that the distortion should be reduced to the level of 0,01%. The lens is equipped with the internal focusing system thanks to which the whole construction does not change its size during focusing. The lens’ aperture consists of eleven blades and it can be closed up to the value of f/32. The characteristic traits of the device should be nice background blurring and the diffraction which should happen later than in other lenses of such a type. Sharp photographs can be taken already from the distance of 34.5cm. 1). Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 The lens has the "Dragonfly" finishing, which means that it is a combination of advantages of "Firefly" and "Blackstone" lenses – the frame has been made of aluminum and the housing – of aluminum and magnesium alloys with composite elements. The whole construction has been sealed with particular focus put on the most sensitive places (front lens, focus lock ring, focus ring and bayonet). The lens is relatively light and small, its dimensions are 87 × 135mm and its weight - 840g. We will be able to mount filters with the diameter of 77mm on its front. 2). Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 The ring with the rotation scale of 270 degrees is to ensure high precision and culture of work. There is also a possibility of blocking the focus ring. The lens’ processor enables the control of the aperture from the level of the camera and the AE mode makes it possible to use semi-automatic modes (PASM). Thanks to this, the information on confirming focus from the level of the camera will be saved in the EXIF data. 3). Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 If we buy the Irix 150mm f/2.8 Macro 1:1 lens, we will receive it in a stiff case in which we will also find a deep sunshield and the tripod grip in the Arca Swiss standard. The lens will be available with the Canon EF, Nikon F and Pentax K mounts. We don’t know yet when the lens is going to appear on sale. Its price is also unknown.
  2. Two of the biggest telephoto Canon lenses - EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM and EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM have become renewed. In their third versions, the devices have significantly lost on weight, they became sealed and their ergonomy has significantly improved. Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III, with the dimensions of 163 × 343mm, lost more than one kilogram - from 3850g to 2840g. A slimming treatment of the bigger of the lenses, EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM, has been a little less successful and the lens now weights 3050g (its predecessor - 3920g) and it has the dimensions of 168 × 448mm. Both lenses have been sealed and the white finishing which characterizes the lenses from the L series is thermal insulation, thanks to which the devices are supposed to work better in extreme temperatures. In order to facilitate keeping the lenses clean, the external surfaces of the first and the last lens have been covered with the fluorine coating. 1). Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM Both lenses are equipped with the control elements on the body enabling focus adjustment, blocking and stopping focus settings. With the use of the ring knob we can go to two pre-programmed focus positions at any time. The focus mode, focus range, programmed focus restoration and the IS controllers are placed ergonomically. 2). Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM The optical systems of both lenses are similar - in both of them we have seventeen lenses placed in thirteen groups, a 9-blade aperture which can be closed up to f/32, while the nominal aperture for 400 mm is f/2.8 and for 600mm - f/4. In both lenses we will find the elements of fluorite lenses and the SubWavelenght Structure Coating (SWC) so we can expect significant reduction in chromatic aberration, flares and blurring while maintaining high quality of the reproduced colors, high resolution and contrast. 3). Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM The autofocus has also been treated as priority. New Canon lenses are equipped with ring USM motors with autofocus and an effective processor enabling fast and quiet AF work. Both lenses make it possible to obtain the "pull-focus" effect with focus regulation and focus preset. Manual focus adjustment in full-time is also available and the focusing speed can be adjusted also by manual electronic regulation. 4). Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM The lenses are to appear on sale in December and they will cost respectively: Canon EF 400 mm f/2.8L IS III USM - $12,000 Canon EF 600 mm f/4L IS III USM - $13,000 In the sets we will find only soft cases. Hard suitcases and new short hoods will be available optionally.

  4. The second lens which had its premiere today is Fujifilm Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR, an ultra-wide angle zoom which ensures the equivalence of 12-24mm f/2.8. This lens will surely be gladly welcomed by many landscape and architecture photographers. Inside a new wide-angle Fujijon zoom we will find the optical system consisting of 20 elements, placed in 13 groups. Among them there are 4 aspheric lenses, which are supposed to control distortions and spherical aberrations, as well as 3 ED elements and 3 super-ED ones. Additionally, the back part of two front lenses is covered with the Nano-GI coating, which is supposed to eliminate light leaks and flares caused by a diagonal incidence of light on optical elements. 1). Fujifilm Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR A 9-blade aperture with a nominal f/2.8 hole, which can be closed up to f/22, is responsible for image plasticity. The construction of the lens is supposed to guarantee the advanced image reproduction functions within the whole range of apertures and focal lengths. 2 liner autofocus motors are responsible for focusing. This should positively influence the speed and precision of focus adjustment – also from the minimum focus distance of 25cm. 2). Fujifilm Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR New Fujinon is also supposed to work effectively in hard, demanding conditions. The tube is made of magnesium and it is additionally sealed in 11 places. As a result, the lens is to be resistant to dust, splashes and low temperatures (-10°C). The lens weighs 805g and it has the dimensions of 122 × 88mm. Fujifilm Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR is to appear on sale at the end of November. It will cost $2,000. Today Fuji also presented an updated map of lenses. We've found three interesting constructions there: XF 33mm f/1 R WR which ensures the equivalence of 50mm f/1.5, wide-angle fixed lens 16mm f/2.8 and a stabilized zoom 16-80mm f/4. 3).

  7. The Sigma's Art series will soon become enriched by a new macro lens. The optical system of the new lens is unique and it cannot be found in the previous models of the series. As it is usually the case with Sigma, the lens has to be different than all other lenses available on the market. This one is equipped with a different mechanism of external focusing, which is going to be a disadvantage for many macro photographers. However, Sigma is of opinion that it is impossible to create a perfect lens of such a type, which adjusts focus not changing its external length at the same time. Zeiss lenses work in similar ways and they cannot be considered as poor with regard to optical parameters. 1). Sigma 70mm f/2.8 DG Macro Art The optical system of the lens consists of 13 elements, placed in 10 groups, among which 6 are special low-dispersion SLD and FLD lenses. Besides that, there are also aspherical lenses, thanks to which the image sharpness is supposed to be even within the whole frame.

  11. Sigma has presented its latest baby - the 14-24 mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art lens. The lens, thanks to the use of the newest technologies, is supposed to determine a completely new standard on the market of wide-angle lenses. Optically, the lens is to be adjusted to the requirements of sensors with a huge number of megapixels, which are more and more often used in cameras. The sensors used in Nikon D850 or Canon 5Ds easily show the weaknesses of the optical system. 1). Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art Inside the latest Sigma zoom, we are going to find an advanced optical system consisting of 17 elements placed in 11 groups. Three of them are FLD lenses, the next three are made of low-dispersion SLD glass and there are also three aspherical elements. As a result, the lens should offer perfect contrast and image quality of high resolution. Besides that, each lens has been covered with anti-reflective coatings which are supposed to ensure effective elimination of light leaks and flares. 2). Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art - Construction The lens is equipped with a 9-blade round aperture. The angle of view of Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art (for full frame) is 114.2°-84.1°, and the maximum zoom is 1:5.4. The thing that the producer is proud of is minimal distortion, at the level of 1% (if we adjust focus to infinity), which is certainly a great achievement when it comes to ultra-wide lenses. The photographers using this lens for architecture photography will be extremely satisfied. A quick and precise HSM motor has been used in the lens. It enables any kind of focusing of a photographed scene, without a need to switch to the MF mode. The minimum focus distance is 26-28cm. 3). Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art is the first of the producer's lenses from the Art series which has seallings. Possibly, a competitive company - Tamron - has forced Sigma to do this since they have often used this fact in their marketing materials. The new Sigma is fully sealed, which should be obvious if the lens is to be used by landscape photographers. Besides that, the lens should also satisfy film-makers. In order to meet the expectations of such users, the authorized service of the producer offers a payable replacement of a tulip solar cover for the wheel cover, which makes it easier to mount additional accessories. The lens will be available with Sigma, Nikon and Canon mounts. The lens is also compatible with the MC-11 converter, thanks to which Sony users will have possibilities of connecting the lens with the Canon mount. Unfortunately, we don't know the price and the date of availability of the 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art model. 4). Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art - Sample Photo 5).

  14. Today, Leica presented a new wide-angle lens with the equivalent of 27mm, developing a bit a humble, as for now, Leica TL system. Leica Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 APSH, as this is the full name of the new lens, is going to be the widest lens of the system. The lens will also be very compact – it has the dimensions of 21×62mm and it weighs 80g so it’s going to be a great companion in reportage photography. 1). Leica Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 APSH and Leica CL The optical system of the new lens has been built on the basis of 8 lenses placed in 6 groups, among which we have 4 aspheric lenses, which are to guarantee good resolution, both in the centre and on the edges of the frame. The lens will enable focus adjustment from the distance of 30cm from the photographed object. Electronic aperture can be closed up to f/16. 2). Leica TL Lens Family The lens is going to be available on the market at the end of November and it’s going to cost $1,300.
  15. Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 Power O.I.S shows perfectly the greatest advantage of using the Micro Four Thirds system, offering the equivalent of 400mm for full frame and the light of f/2.8. Its dimensions are merely 174×87mm and it weighs 1245g. In comparison, Nikon 400mm f/2.8 weighs 134oz. (3.8kg) and it has the dimensions of 6.3in (159.5mm) × 14.09in (358mm). These figures speak for themselves… The optical system of the new Leica consists of 15 elements placed in 13 groups, among which we have two low-dispersion lenses, which are to perfectly deal with chromatic aberration. But the most impressive property is the minimum focus distance which is only 1.15m. This will make it possible to use the lens in taking photographs which would be impossible to take with the use of ordinary 400’s. The 9-blade aperture can be closed up to f/22. 1). Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 Power O.I.S Apart from that, the new lens is equipped with the POWER O.I.S optical stabilization system and sealings, which should protect the lens from dust and splashes. We also shouldn’t forget about the 1.4× teleconverter added to the set, which is supposed to change the lens into a telephoto lens with the equivalent of 560mm. Filters with the diameter of 77mm can be used on the front lens. 2). Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 Power O.I.S The lens will cost $2,999. It is to appear on sale in January 2018.
  16. Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 is a successor of the SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD model, presented in 2012, which for many years has been a great alternative to much more expensive lenses of producers such as Nikon and Canon. The optical system of new Tamron consists of 17 lenses placed in 12 groups. It includes 2 XR elements with high refractive index, 3 low-dispersion ones, 3 aspherical GM lenses and one hybrid apsheric lens. eBand Coating, the technology which improves anti-reflective effectiveness and working against the light, has also been used. The front lens is covered with fluroide layer, which makes it easier to remove dirt from its surface. 1). Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Tamron SP 24-70 mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 is equipped with dual MPU processor, which is responsible for the whole control system, including image stabilization and USD motor. Thanks to that, the autofocus should be much faster and more precise than in the older model. The minimum focus distance is supposed to be barely 15" (38cm). 2). Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 When it comes to design, the new model matches other lenses from the whole Tamron series. The lens is, of course, sealed. Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 is to appear on sale in the second half of July 2017. It will cost around $1,200.
  17. Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM from the professional G Master series is a new lens intended to be used in landscape and architectural photography. The optical system consists of 16 elements placed in 13 groups, including 5 aspherical lenses and 2 made of low-dispersion glass. Such a solution is to ensure perfect focus within the whole frame view and minimize chromatic aberration. Additionally, the lenses are covered with Nano AR coatings, which are supposed to reduce light reflection and ensure high contrast. The front lens is additionally covered with a fluorine coating, which makes it easier to clean the lens from dirt and other forms of contamination. 1). Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM with Sony Alpha a7R Similarly to other lenses from the G Master series, Sony used a 11-blade aperture. A well-known system of two ultrasonic DDSSM motors is responsible for adjusting focus. The whole construction is, of course, sealed and it weighs 680g, which is a good result for such a professional lens. 2). Sony FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM The lens is to appear on sale in August and it will cost $2,200.
