Photography Soup (August 17): Sony H3, T200 and T70 leaks do not get much reaction

  • The reaction to the leaks of the Sony H3 and Sony T200 and T70 has been rather subdued. Infact one could say that because of that Sony Style Canada has not taken down the microsites for the T200 and T20 yet!
  • According to DigitalCamera.jp the Sigma 18-200 DC OS for the Nikon mount will go on sale in Japan at the end of August for around 83,000 yen. Sigma Japan page (computer-translated). Also coming out in Europe for 450 euros according to photographie.de (german text)
  • Thanks to everyone voting in our Future DSLR poll. After 150+ votes, the Olympus E-P1 (E3) seems to be the one that most interests the readers of this blog, followed by the Nikon D3 (D3X / D3h) and then the Nikon D300 just ahead of the Canon 5D follow-up and 40D... There are some intermittent technical difficulties with the blogger polls. Unfortunately I have no control over how fast they get fixed.
