Thom Hogan posted the latest review on the brand new Nikon D3x and indeed a very thorough review IMHO.  His take on the Nikon D3X and I quote, “the D3x produces excellent, best-of-class images, but that comes at a price that’s the highest of any existing DSLR. You’ll need really top notch lenses and technique to resolve that performance. Are you really ready for all that portends?”

Wow, look at this cannon, well, it’s the all new Sigma APO 200-500mm F2.8 EX DG for the Nikon.  Not the usual white but of a military green. According to DPReview, “it’s the

  • The world’s first ultra telephoto zoom lens that offers a fast aperture of F2.8 at the 500mm focal length.
  • The dedicated “Attachment” ensures autofocusing at the 1000mm focal length.
  • SLD and three ELD glass elements provide high image quality from the maximum large aperture
  • Supplied with ø72mm filter holder at the rear

This lens is the world’s first ultra telephoto zoom lens that offers a fast aperture of F2.8 at the 500mm focal length and F5.6 at the 1000mm. It covers widely used focal lengths from 200mm to 500mm and as a large aperture of F2.8 throughout the entire zoom range. This lens can be used to create amazing image expression with various types of photography such as astrophotography, portraits, wildlife, sports. SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass and three ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) glass elements provide excellent correction for all type of aberrations.

The super multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides high image quality from the extremely large aperture. The lens hood, designed exclusively for this lens, blocks out extraneous light. A 72mm filter can be inserted at the rear of the lens, and a circular polarizing filter can be used in situ thanks to the ingenious internal rotation mechanism. The dedicated Li-ion battery BP-21 is used to power the zooming and AF operation. This battery is built in the lens barrel. For the convenience of the photographer, focusing distances and focal lengths can be viewed on the lens`s built-in LCD panel.”

This baby will be launched mid-December at a price tag of US$34,000. This one sure gives me the chill.
