Photography Gear News & Reviews Roundup – Dec. 22

SLR Lounge reviewed the Nikon D750. As reviewers sometimes tend to get over the top, so do they, calling it a ‘Must Have!.’ Sounds a bit much for me, but I do agree with the five stars.

DP Review also posted its Nikon D750 review, done by no less than five writers/editors. They give it 90% and the Gold award.

PhotoZone did a fast review of the eagerly anticipated Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 USM L IS II lens. Highly Recommended.

PhotoZone reviewed the Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 USM IS, an update from a lens Canon had left unchanged for 24 years. They say it’s ‘all-in-all not an obvious choice but certainly not a bad one either.’

Gordon at Camera Labs posted his review of the Fuji X100T, an update to the X100S. It’s a worthwhile read as he discusses why the X100T calls out to him even though he also has the Fuji X-T1. The T gets a Highly Recommended rating.

The Phoblographer gives the Sony 16-35mm f/4 OSS lens four out of five stars. The only thing they didn’t like was the price.

As promised, Fuji made its new firmware for the X-T1 available. Among many other new features, it adds electronic shutter speed of up to 1/32,000s and the vaunted Classic Chrome film simulation.

Phase One released version 8.1 of Capture One, a free update.

Canon updated its Digital Photo Professional software to version 4.1.50. Canon offers these updates by camera, but if you just want one link instead of navigating through the Canon Support site, use this one:

Happy Holidays!
