Sony has in 1 swoop delivered 3 new FE lenses and probably the most valuable ones to date. We have a 24-70 f2.8 OSS, 70-200 f2.8 OSS, and an 85mm f1.4. All these lenses are apart of a new range of Sony G Master lenses (GM) and feature higher resolution power as well as softer transitions in bokeh. We had the opportunity to use all three lenses today so stay tuned for the full hands on as well as sample images. The Sony FE 24-70mm f2.8 GM will be available in March for $2200 while the 85mm F1.4 GM also available in march will be priced at $1800. The 70-200mm F2.8 GE will arrive in May with an unknown price and will be introduced alongside a 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverter giving Sony some much needed options for longer focal lengths.

After much speculation, the new Olympus Pen F has just arrived...though with some inflation unfortunately. With a new 20MP sensor, faster processor enabling 10fps with a mechanical shutter, and improved AF performance via the 81 point contrast detect focus system. Unfortunately, the rest is fairly standard (but still good) affair with a 3" articulating touch screen, 1/8000 mechanical shutter, 1080p video up to 60fps, 5 axis in camera image stabilization, and built in wifi. Unfortunately this new setup costs a high $1,199 (body only) when it goes on sale March 15th which seems a bit high for a micro 4/3 camera and lacking some more impressive features we expect for high end systems. That said, specs aren't everything and Olympus may have something special with the Pen F's stunning retro design.

Day 9 has arrived and now is your chance to own an iconic Hasselblad camera at almost reasonable prices. This is not just for the cameras either, Hasselblad lenses (AKA Sony) are also on a massive sale so for all you Sony NEX owners, you may want to jump on this before the day is up. All cameras come with a free copy of Lightroom in case you need an extra shove in the right direction. Hey, it's Christmas! Maybe that iconic "H" is worth the extra cash. I will say that these come packaged in some amazing looking cases and the real Italian leather straps and wood grain are legitimate upgrades.
Check them out now while we wait for another day of savings!
