Daily Photography Gear News & Reviews Roundup – Oct. 28

Imaging Resource took the Pentax 645Z through its paces. They love it and regret having to hand it back to Pentax.

PhotoZone added the Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 for Sony to its ever-growing list of lens reviews. It doesn’t score that high. Unless you want the Zeiss bokeh, the site suggests you get the Sony E 35mm f/1.8 OSS lens instead.

The Phoblographer reviewed the Fujifilm X30. It gets four out of five stars. There are tons of sample images. The site touts the lens’s bokeh, but I’m not sure I agree with that impression, based on the sample images. Then again, bokeh is often a personal preference.

Ahead of PhotoPlus Expo in New York, Epson announced the Epson Surecolor P600 inkjet printer, which promises ‘the richest blacks’ and ‘smooth tonal transitions’ for B&W prints. Estimated price will be $800.
