Where we stand - thoughts after Canon and Nikon Mirrorless Announcements

2018 is shaping up to be an interesting and important year for the photographic industry. I should probably qualify that it is an important year for the photographic equipment industry though - as opposed to the photographic world as a whole - which I’ll elaborate on below. 2018 is also very definitely going to be remembered as the year where the two giants in the industry (Canon and Nikon) changed course to tack with the prevailing mirrorless winds. If you are reading this you are probably already aware of the introduction by Nikon and Canon of two full-frame mirrorless systems that are pretty much a harbinger of each company’s future development aspirations.

Zeiss Milvus Review - on Landscapegear.co.xa

Just before heading off for my first trip to Iceland I acquired a Zeiss Milvus 18mm f2.8 lens. I was mad, or so I thought at the time. The Zeiss is an extraordinarily expensive lens for what is a manual focus 18mm prime lens. However, it does offer landscape photographers something that can't necessarily be found in other lenses. After shooting in Iceland and a snowy Drakensberg Mountains, I put together a review for Landscapegear.co.za which can be viewed on this link.
