In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at a Canon 16-35mm f4 IS, buying used, Eyefi Connected and Secondhand.

  • Following up on his Canon wide-angle zoom comparison, Roger Cicala takes apart a Canon 16-35mm f4 IS. "Now that I've seen the insides," he writes, "I'm very optimistic that this lens will be less likely to deteriorate optically over time and will be more easily corrected when it does."
  • Kirk Tuck gives a little advice you'll never see on a click farm site: Buy used. In one case, he "basically got to use, play with and leverage a fun, full frame and very professional camera for a year -- for free." Because he didn't just buy it but eventually sold it, too.
  • Eye-Fi has announced plans for its first ever Eyefi Connected photographers conference on Oct. 11 to 12 in Mountain View, Calif. The "interactive and engaging event with a wonderful group of professional photographers, fellow enthusiasts and industry experts" is designed to "share insights and ideas with the focus on taking great photos."
  • From August 4 through May 31, 2015, Pier 24 Photography will present Secondhand, "an exhibition featuring artists who build repositories of found images, from which they appropriate, construct, edit, and sequence in order to create something entirely new." The show includes works by Maurizio Anzeri, John Baldessari, Viktoria Binschtok, Melissa Catanese, Daniel Gordon, Erik Kessels, Mike Mandel, Matt Lipps, Richard Prince, Rashid Rana, Joachim Schmid, Larry Sultan, Hank Willis Thomas, and selections from the Archive of Modern Conflict.
