This ultra-telephoto
zoom lens covers a telephoto range up to 500mm and allows photographers to bring
the subject close and short perspective. Sigma's original OS (Optical Stabilizer)
function offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower. It is
ideal for sports, wildlife and landscape photography with handheld shooting. Three
SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction for chromatic
aberration. This lens is equipped with a rear focus system that minimizes fluctuation
of aberration caused by focusing. The super multi-layer lens coating reduces flare
and ghosting. High image quality is assured throughout the entire zoom range.
This lens incorporates HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), which ensures a quiet and high-speed
AF as well as full-time manual focusing capability. The addition of the (optional)
1.4x EX DG APO or 2x EX DG APO Tele Converters produce a 210-700mm F7-9 MF ultra-telephoto
zoom lens or a 300-1000mm F10-13 MF ultra-telephoto zoom lens respectively. A
removable tripod socket (TS-31) is included as a standard component.

BenVista announces today the release of a major update for PhotoZoom Pro 2. The
new version 2.2 for both Windows and Mac OS X platforms is now available. PhotoZoom
Pro 2, BenVista's digital image resizing software, was initially released in August
2006. BenVista continued to work on further improvements and additional features,
which have now been added in today's release.



The S-Spline XL resizing technique, which (together with the original ?S-Spline
technique) is unique to the PhotoZoom software range, has been improved and now
gives even better results. PhotoZoom Pro 2 comes both as a standalone application
and as an export plugin for Adobe(R) Photoshop. The plugin version is now compatible
with Photoshop CS3. While the standalone version already was a Universal application
for the Mac, the plugin now too is Universal (when used in CS3).



Other improvements are speed boosts, preference settings for a more convenient
workflow, and a fully rewritten, up-to-date manual.



The latest version of PhotoZoom Pro 2, for both Windows and Mac OS X, can be downloaded
directly from www.benvista.com.
PhotoZoom Pro 2.2 comes as a free update for registered PhotoZoom Pro 2 users.

Olympus Imaging America Inc. has introduced the new Zuiko Digital ED 8mm F3.5
Full Frame Fisheye Lens. The Zuiko 8mm fisheye is designed to be digital specific
and render sharp edge-to-edge images, in an easy to handle size, and with a close
focus of less than 5 ½ inches.



Along with its many attributes this 8mm fisheye promises to set a new professional
standard for ultra wide-angle underwater photography because it can be used in
conjunction with the EVOLT E-300 digital SLR and the new PT-EO1 underwater housing
and PPO-E04 lens port at depths of up to 196 feet (60m).



This full frame fisheye lens has a 180º field of view diagonally to the Four
Thirds image sensor, and a focal length of 8mm (equivalent to 16mm in a 35mm camera).
Because of this it can be used to create extremely dramatic photographic images
that cannot be seen unaided with the human eye. Because this lens is specifically
designed for digital cameras and conforms to the "Four Thirds System,"
it will provide reliable photographic performance even at the edges of the images.




With a minimum focusing distance of 5.3 inches (0.79 inch from the front of the
lens to the subject), this lens can be used to approach the subject aggressively
for wide-close-up photography. This feature is the key to the creation of images
with exaggerated perspective effects.



Because of the different refractive indexes of light in air and water, the angle
of view underwater will be reduced to approximately 153º, and since it is
often more difficult to capture light underwater, it is necessary to get closer
to the subject. To remedy the problem, the super-close-up capability of this lens
allows photography of the subject just 0.79 inch from the front of the lens to
achieve the wide-close-up effects for which fisheye lenses are famous.



The new Zuiko Digital ED 8mm f3.5 Fisheye will go on sale in January 2006.



Estimated Street Price: $799.95
