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 Hogan's Sony A6000 review, Johnston's Sigma lens solution for Sony, the Canon 25mm pancake lens and 12 free rental days from BorrowLenses.

  • Thom Hogan's Sony A6000 Review demonstrates the difference between its JPEG rendering and the 11-bit Raw manipulated in Camera Raw.
  • At The Online Photographer, meanwhile, Mike Johnston laments Sony's lens offerings while praising Fujifilm. Johnston does salute Sigma for its DN series for the Sony NEX/Alpha mirrorless cameras.
  • Photography Blog has posted a short review of the $149 Canon EF-S 25mm f2.8 pancake lens. Manual focusing leaves something to be desired but autofocus performance was "quick" with little hunting.
  • BorrowLenses will add 12 free days to your rental if it is due Dec. 25 when you use the coupon code FREEWEEK14. Even with a three-day rental starting Dec. 22, you can keep the gear until Jan. 5, 2015.

More to come...
