Announcement Regarding the Nikon D600 Digital SLR Camera

March 28, 2014

With regard to the issue with which multiple granular black spots are reflected in images captured with the D600 digital SLR camera, Nikon sincerely apologizes for any concern and inconvenience suffered by D600 users, retailers, and all concerned.

Because Nikon takes this matter very seriously, we will continue to offer users of the D600 a special service with which cameras are inspected, cleaned, and if necessary, shutter and related components are replaced free of charge, even after the product warranty has expired. However, if a number of multiple granular black spots are still noticeable in images captured with a D600 upon which the above service has been performed several times, Nikon will replace it with a new D600 or an equivalent model.

Nikon will continue to work to improve the quality of its products and services even further.
We hope that you will continue to choose Nikon products for your photographic needs.

Panasonic Announces Availability and Price of Leica DG Summilux 15mm F1.7 ASPH

Wed March 26, 2014

Panasonic announced that the LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15mm/F1.7 ASPH. will be available in the U.S. in May with an MSRP of US $599.99.

PRESS RELEASE

LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15mm / F1.7 ASPH.

High Speed Prime Wide-Angle Lens

NEWARK, NJ (March 26, 2014) – Panasonic is proud to announce the LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15mm / F1.7 ASPH interchangeable lens for the Micro Four Thirds format.  (35 mm camera equivalent: 30 mm). The new LEICA DG SUMMILUX 15mm / F1.7 ASPH. allows photographers to capture images with beautiful defocus features produced by F1.7 lens. The SUMMILUX 15mm lens is very compact and lightweight.  The lens will be available in the U.S. at www.shop.panasonic.com and photo specialty retailers.

The new lens system is comprised of nine elements in seven groups and uses three aspherical lenses. The aspherical lenses suppress spherical aberration and distortion effectively while realizing downsizing of the lens unit. Panasonic’s Nano Surface Coating technology is adopted to minimize the reflection at entire visual light range (380nm-780nm) by applying the extra-low refractive index coating with nano-sized structure on the surface of the lens. It results in a super clear picture with a dramatic reduction of ghost and flare. The lens incorporates a superior inner focus system, which enables excellent resolution and contrast from close-up to infinity. The inclusion of a newly developed stepping motor makes the focusing action smooth and silent for use in both photo and video recording. Notably the performance of Auto Focus (AF) is by far superior to the phase-difference AF when a fast lens with smaller aperture value is used. It is also compatible with the sensor drive at max.240 fps to take maximum advantage of cameras with high-speed AF when mounted on the cameras of LUMIX G system.
