What's New 2011


December 22, 2011 - I would like to wish all my readers Happy Holidays and a healthy and prosperous New Year. I made brief updates to my reviews of the Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6, Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, and the Tokina 12-24mm f/4 lenses. In a nutshell I switched to the Tokina 12-24mm.

December 07, 2011 - Fujifilm released a statement addressing the X10 and the white dot syndrome:

'Fujifilm engineers have examined a number of sample shots and have concluded that the camera is working within prescribed tolerances. The blooming issue is something not uncommon to many types of digital camera. It is possible to reduce the effects of blooming either by increasing the ISO or widening the dynamic range on the camera. However, after receiving a number of comments from users, we can understand their concern and plan a firmware upgrade to lessen the effects of blooming. We will announce in due course when the upgrade will be available.'
