That’s the full press text (Click on link to read it).
November 7, 2013, Commack, N.Y. – Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Morio Ono), a leading manufacturer of precision optics, has announced the development of an innovative ultra-telephoto zoom lens with a focal length range of 150mm to 600mm for full-frame and APS-C format DSLR cameras. The lens sample will be on display in the Tamron booth at the Salon de la Photo 2013 that will be held from November 7-11 in Paris, France. Pricing and delivery information are not available at this time.
Tamron’s current 200-500mm (Model A08) is a popular, compact, easy-to-use ultra-telephoto zoom lens, but customers have shown great interest in having a lens that provides an even greater focal length range.
This all-new ultra-telephoto zoom lens features VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization, speedy, precise USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive)(3), state-of-the-art eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating, which significantly reduces the unwanted light reflections that cause flare and ghosting, and a sophisticated and stylish new external finish.
Its 4x ultra-telephoto zoom capabilities, with a focal length range from 150mm to 600mm, enhance the creative potential of telephoto photography, a captivating feature for all photographers, particularly nature, wildlife, and sports shooters.
(3) USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) is Tamron’s proprietary ring-type ultrasonic motor.

Fujifilm has announced the launch of the Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic, the latest edition to the company’s acclaimed range of Instax cameras.
The Mini 90 is a premium, fully-fledged camera design that sets itself apart from the “cute” image projected by its predecessors in the Instax range. It automatically detects localised brightness and then adjusts the optimum amount of light for the flash and shutter speed to improve image quality.
It features a variety of photography modes allowing more freedom, control and creativity in your photography. In addition to the standard ‘point and shoot’ the user can also select from the following modes:
The Mini 90 produces credit card sized prints within seconds of clicking the shutter. Gabriel Da Costa, product manager for Fujifilm, explained more: “The Mini 90 Neo Classic is the grown-up brother of the Instax range. Instant print cameras are the perfect antidote to the disposable digital age and the format illustrates the renaissance that film photography is enjoying at the moment. Its design obviously gives a nod to Fujifilm’s X Range of digital cameras and combines retro styling with cutting-edge technology. The Mini 90 appeals to both the ‘happy snapper’ who enjoys the fun of an instant camera and the more serious photographer who can experiment with the various modes to produce some truly great results.”
Aftershokz Bluez allow you to enjoy your music as a background to your life, instead of isolating you from it. Once you put the headphones on, the music is “there”. You can be walking down the street or talking while in the office. If someone comes in to talk to you there’s no need to take an earplug out or take off your over-the-ear headphones. These headphones work by resonating the music through your bones instead of using the ear drums (whi5Y0A7853ch convert the audio waves we hear to vibrations our inner ear can pick up). They are great. They are meant for running, as they allow you to pay attention to your surroundings while immersing in your tunes, but work great anywhere else you want to listen to your headphones but have to keep constant contact with your enviroment.
This is the Sony FE Lens roadmap! What we can expect:
- One Zeiss fast prime lens in 2014 (hurray!)
- One Zeiss f/4.0 wide angle zoom
- One G macro lens
- By end of 2015 a total of 15 lenses will be released (today’s five announced lenses included).
