Photography Information: Five New Lenses, Rumored Telephoto Zoom for Nikon Z

A very sensible AI-based robotic, ChatGPT, has not too long ago appeared on the internet. You may ask it questions, and it responds with uncanny accuracy. I requested it a easy query this Saturday: “Are cameras with a full-frame sensor higher than these with an APS-C sensor when capturing at excessive ISO?”

Inside seconds, I bought this reply: “Normally, cameras with a full-frame sensor are inclined to carry out higher at excessive ISO settings than cameras with an APS-C sensor. It is because full-frame sensors are bigger, which permits them to collect extra gentle and produce much less noise at excessive ISO settings. Nonetheless, there are various different components that may have an effect on a camera’s efficiency at excessive ISO, akin to the standard of the camera’s picture processor and the lens getting used, so the precise benefits of a full-frame sensor over an APS-C sensor can differ relying on the precise camera mannequin.”

That’s a heck of a factor for a robotic to say. (And a heck of a factor to ponder a robotic that writes higher than most of Photography Life’s opponents 🙂

I made a decision to confirm the robotic’s declare and took my Birdman into the freezing climate of a mountain forest. How did my experiment – straight evaluating the Nikon Z9 and Nikon D500 cameras – end up? You can find out quickly. However for now, you’ll be able to learn what images information final week introduced.

The Rumor Mill

600mm Z-Mount Zoom Lens – Who will likely be first?

Nikon has already introduced the brand new tremendous telephoto Nikon Z 600mm f/4 TC VR S. The lens is definitely superior, little doubt about it. However not many individuals can afford the gear on the value of a automotive. Should you, like me, are in that group, then you might be ready for Nikon to introduce the long-awaited 200-600mm zoom. This one has been on the Nikon lens roadmap for a while now, however I nonetheless don’t have any studies that it will likely be launched any time quickly. So it’s fairly potential that we’ll see one other, comparatively inexpensive lens that ends on the similar focal size sooner – the Sigma 60-600mm f/4.5-6.3 DG DN OS Sports. Sigma already makes a lens on this vary, however solely for DSLRs and Sigma SA mount.

At Sony, they’ve given this some thought, and the end result could quickly be a lens with an unconventional vary: a 20-70mm.

I suppose this will likely be a a lot sought-after lens, particularly for those that wish to journey gentle, and might use it as an alternative of a separate ultra-wide.
