The previously-delayed Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM lens has a newly listed ship date of May 15, 2013. It’s $3600, but it’s a constant f/2.8 throughout the zoom range. It is a beast of a lens. Hit the links below for more details.
I expect both of these models to be in high demand. I sat down with a representative earlier today and he said that while the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera will begin shipping in July, they are expecting a high demand that will lead to a hefty backorder log.
In short, if you want one, pre-order it now.
You can pre-order the Blackmagic Pocket Camera here at B&H Photo.
You can pre-order the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K here at B&H Photo.
Sigma’s new 30mm F1.4 DC HSM lens will be available later this month for $499. The new lens is designed for APS-C sensor DSLRs and will be offered in Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts. Check it out at B&H Photo at the following links.
(Note that there’s still a backorder message on the page at them moment, but that should be removed as soon as the inventory in their system is updated.)
The new Pentax MX-1 serious compact camera with a retro flare is in stock and now shipping. The MX-1 sports a 12MP sensor, 4x zoom lens, 1080p HD video and has a fast f/1.8-2.5 lens. Focus and shutter response are very fast for a point and shoot camera. I had a very positive first look at the MX-1 at CES 2013.
