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 wide-angle perspectives, bokeh, a BorrowLenses deal and Fracture gift cards.

  • In Peripheral Lens, David English considers the "correlation between wide-angle lenses and peripheral vision." He favors a 21mm wide angle, though, considering even 35mm too close to normal.
  • In Bokeh, can you see?, Jim Kasson compares the quality of bokeh (the rendering of out-of-focus objects) of the Sony 135mm f2.8 STF and the Nikon 135mm f2 DC-Nikkor, both designed to produce unusual bokeh.
  • BorrowLenses is offer 25 percent off rentals through Dec. 29 when you use the code HOLIDAYS2016.
  • Fracture is offering 20 percent off digital gift cards through Jan. 1.

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