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 Hasselblad X1D sample shots, a review of the Nikon D500, two new sites to buy old gear and Leica wide-angle lenses.

  • Ming Thein posts his Very early shooting impressions (with full size samples) of the Hasselblad X1D. The test images assess "quality of bokeh, edge sharpness, flare resistance, dynamic range, lateral CA etc." Includes bullet points covering, well, almost everything you can after 36 hours with a new camera.
  • Thom Hogan has published his Nikon D500 Camera Review, although it might seem he had another body in mind. "Coupled with its built-in flash, the D7200 is probably the DX camera most people should be buying," he concludes. "The D7200 is an excellent all-around performer and one you can’t overlook in considering the D500."
  • Derrick Story is selling some old gear on TheFilmCameraShop his Etsy storefront and his even less expensive Outlet Store for Used Gear.
  • In Guide to Leica Wide Angle Lenses on Sony a7 Series Bodies, Joey Miller provides a visual reference for wide-angle M mount lenses on Sony mirrorless bodies. And while you're there, don't miss Roger Cicala's A Letter To Our Customers.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
