Photography Soup (8/5/07)

More Canon Rumors!

  • A new EF-S 18-55 IS lens?
  • More on the hypothetical Canon EOS 40D here, and here. A shell of a page for the 40D allegedly appeared on the Hong Kong website of Canon.
  • Meanwhile someone has started a countdown to the 40D announcement. Another user hopes/wishes for a 1.3x sensor instead of the 1.6x

    Overheard in the dpreview forums
  • Discussion of the analog memory card Velvia 50 :-)
  • The four new M-series lenses announced by Leica have created a buzz: here and here. If you are not familiar with the Leica line-up and get confused by the names, here is an easy mnemonic: The R-series is not the Rangefinders :) The M-series is the rangerfinders!
  • A new definition of Bridge cameras proposed by a forum user. Also an interesting take on Image Quality
  • Sunday is a great day for wild debates. Here are some of the most exciting ones:
  • Bayer vs Foveon
  • Full Frame vs APS-C/Cropped
  • E500 silver or black?
  • Is the new compact 14-42 better than the previous Olympus kit lens?
  • And some love for Windows Vista ;-)
  • NASA picks a side on the Canon vs Nikon war
  • How about a Kenya safari kit?
  • A reasonable question to ask: Why two green pixels for every red and blue?
  • Let's talk Infrared!
  • Why Nikon not joining 4/3rds?

    Threads with pictures
  • Hong Kong with the Fuji F30
  • The Sunday Bird
