Of course, many more rumors could come and go between now and the expected August 25 announcement date. This latest info comes from a tip over at Canon Rumors, which also points out the marketing convenience of a 30MP sensor when sandwiched between the 5Ds, 1D X Mark II and 6D Mark II models. At 30MP, the camera wouldn’t step on any toes and would give other models room to grow without becoming redundant.

Adobe has released Lightroom for Apple TV. Using the app, you can view photos that you’ve synchronized with Lightroom for mobile or uploaded through Lightroom on the web.
You can present your photos one by one or in a slideshow with the ability to stop and zoom in on the details, right on the screen connected to your Apple TV. And, with the synchronized photos living in your Creative Cloud account, the most up-to-date versions will always be what’s in your collections on your Apple TV.
You can download the new Lightroom app by going to the App Store on your Apple TV. The app requires a 4th generation Apple TV and a Creative Cloud subscription to login.

Nikon has announced the new AF-S 105mm f/1.4E ED lens for $2199. The lens is FX mount with internal focusing with manual override and a rounded 9-blade diaphragm.

The Nikon AF-S 105mm f/1.4E ED lens should be available in August. You can pre-order it now here at B&H Photo.
