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 the new Canon 100-400mm zoom, another storm shot, a Christmas card and a George Eastman House matching grant.

  • In A Brief 400mm Comparison, Roger Cicala tests Canon's new 100-400mm zoom against its predecessor, noting "the difference in resolution between the original 400mm DO and the Mk II version was rather amazing to me."
  • We're not the only one posting storm pictures. Derrick Story got Highway 101 After the Storm with his Olympus OM-D E-M1 and its 14-42mm zoom (without a polarizer, too). He used OpticsPro 10 to process the Raw file.
  • Harold Davis has posted his Christmas card Seasons Greetings: Graced with Light!. He doesn't say but we're guessing the lovely interpretation is of the rose window at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.
  • George Eastman House has received a planning grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities which requires them to raise matching funds of $33,769 before year-end. You can help with a donation.

More to come...
