We know PMA is coming, but we’re seeing a little fallout from CES with product announcements like the RiDATA SMART (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) CF card, which helps prevent major data loss. If you want to try out the RiDATA Pro 150x 2GB, you can get it on the cheap right now.

B&H Photo has a used copy of this puppy laying around the warehouse for a super deal of $99,000 with case (plus shipping). Looks like they’ve only got one though. Darn, I was hoping for a pair.
This remarkable lens is the longest in the world with full autofocus capability. Two fluorite elements for superb image quality, make it ideal for many professional applications where it’s impossible to get close to the subject. Fully compatible with any EOS SLR, including digital bodies, autofocus performance is silent and instantaneous thanks to the Ultrasonic Motor. It’s also compatible with the Canon Extender EF 1.4x II (making it a 1700mm f/8) and EF 2x II (2400mm f/11). Available upon special order.
The Sony A100 is the first foray into the DSLR realm for Sony. The A100 comes from a blend of Konica Minolta’s experience of several decades of camera building. After Konica Minolta quit the camera business, Sony bought what was left of its DSLR business and carried on with the A100 as a rebuffed Minolta DSLR with a dash of Sony’s style. At 10.1 megapixels, the A100 delivers quite a punch for an entry-level DSLR, especially with the Super Steady Shot sensor-based shake reduction technology. [Read more…]

Here’s a shot of the rumored Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G VR mounted on a D2. (You can click on it to go to the Flickr page for larger images) There have been a few images of this lens captured in the wild. Some are convinced this is a photoshopped image of the 18-200mm; however, I think there are too many subtle differences and too many different angles of photos of this lens floating around the web for it to be photoshopped. Expect to see more of the new 16-85mm lens at PMA later this month. By the way, this is a great focal length for Nikon DX shooters.
More images here.

The Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM lens is a high-performance, L-series telephoto zoom lens combining light weight and compactness with an f/4 maximum aperture. Inner focusing and the ring USM enable quick and quiet autofocusing. Also, a circular polarizing filter can be attached and used without difficulty because the front lens element does not rotate during focusing. The tripod collar (sold separately) is the same one used with the EF 300mm f/4L USM. (Canon) [Read more…]
We will launch a strong product. Intermediate camera “EOS 5D” there will be increased durability and the subsequent pixel models listed. At the same price, we will launch better products.
Granted, that’s Google’s translation, but I think we get the gist from it. It sounds like we’ll be seeing something in between the current 5D and the 1 series cameras.
For what it’s worth, here’s another translation:
We will launch powerful products. A new version of the middle range 5D will be launched with more pixels and enhanced reliability in the market. This will be the best of the DSLRs in the same price. (Source)
More on the 5D Mark II (or whatever it’s called) on this page. Stay tuned for the latest.
We know PMA is getting closer because the rumors are getting tough to keep up with. Check out all of these purported photos of the Pentax K200D. (via DigitalFotoNetz.de) If they’re real, it sure looks pretty. Unfortunately, no additional word on the specs, yet. See the previous info on the K20D and K200D on this page.
