Panasonic-GH4-camera-front

Holy cow! Panasonic’s new 4K GH4 is now available for pre-order for a mind-boggling $1699. That’s a 4K camera with a large, Micro Four Thirds sensor for $1699. Panasonic just fired a big shot across the rest of the industry’s bow. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

You can also pre-order the GH4 with the Interface Unit for $3299. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

The YAGH Interface Unit itself retails for $1999. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Priced at $799, Available in July

Sigma 18-35mm

Sigma’s new 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens (yes, a constant f/1.8 zoom) just got an official price point of $799 and it will start shipping next month. It is available for Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax and Sigma DSLR mounts. You can pre-order the new lens with free shipping here at B&H Photo.

My thoughts are that this is perfect pricing for this lens, and I think Sigma is going to sell a ton at this price with the overly positive early reviews we’ve seen. Sigma is knocking it out of the park lately, and this is yet another home run.
