    Comes down to reality for me camera sales are now at late 90's levels ie pre massive boom period for digital the party is over in a big way. Hence the reason for lower profits but Nikon's latest figures show increased profits from a near 10% decline in sales. Canon are not losing money ie […]

    The camera market we're on about isn't aimed at phone cameras it's enthusiast based be it as a hobby or semi/full paid work all get lumped into the category where they will buy products of this type and the associated extras that come with them aka lenses flashes etc. Average Joe is probably happy with […]

Sony’s precision aspherics

In interviews about the new micron-accurate aspheric lens element moulding process used to increase the resolution of the latest Sony G Master lenses, a visual has appeared which shows the ‘onion ring’ effect that coarser mould machining causes in lens elements.

Working independently, I’ve been aware of this for years – and I have used . . . → Read More: Sony’s precision aspherics
