Now although I’m a Nikon shooter, I’m not one of these people that gets tied up in the brand wars. I can fully appreciate when any camera manufacturer breaks new ground as I’m a technology geek, and with that in mind I thought it would be well worth mentioning Canon’s new 5D Mark II camera and pointing you to a site that has a stunning short film, shot entirely on a pre-production model of Canon’s new DSLR.

Photokina 2008, Nikon have announced the long awaited AFS version of the tried and trusted 50mm prime lens. More information can be found here. I’m looking forward to reading reviews on how this new lens performs on FF camera’s as I’ve been thinking about picking one of these up for the D3. It would make a handy throw-in-the-bag lens for when I’m out shooting with my telephotos.

That’s according to Nikon themselves who, in a very ‘Lost’ inspired way, answered a question by raising more! For anyone who hasn’t seen it yet…which can’t be many of you by now…over at Nikon Rumours.com there is a scan from the inside of Rangefinder magazine in which Nikon have placed an advert saying ‘something BIG is coming…’
