Daily Photography Gear News & Reviews Roundup – Oct. 30

Ricoh announced the HD Pentax DA 16-85mm f3.5-5.6 ED DC WR lens. All those acronyms stand for HD coating (more light transmission, reduced reflections), an ED element (fewer aberrations, better colors), a DC autofocus motor (smoother, quieter) and WR (weather resistant) construction.

The Photography Blog reviewed the new Fujifilm X100T, a minor update to the venerable X100S. I didn’t know they had a ranking even higher than ‘Highly Recommended,’ but they do. Apparently, the X100T is ‘Essential.’ Really?

Sony USA is again upping the ante against Nikon and Canon by rolling out a professional support program.

PDN PhotoPlus Expo starts today in New York City. Nothing major has been announced, as Photokina stole all the thunder a few weeks ago.

The Canon 7D Mark II starts shipping today in the USA.


Expect floor deals from the various camera stores at the PhotoPlus Expo.
