Zeiss introduced 12 new lenses today, well 6 for Canon and 6 for Nikon. All these new lenses are part of the Milvus series which is their first series of weather-sealed DSLR lenses. They may be the only MF-Only weather-sealed lenses but I’m not 100% sure.  If such lenses exist, the predate out lens database which, thanks the Zeiss Milvus launch just exceeded 1000 lenses!

There are actually 1009 fully searchable lenses, just try our Lens Search feature if you have not done it before. There is an interesting distinction between the two and that is the presence of a declickable aperture-ring on the Nikon (ZF.2) models. Check the whole list of Zeiss lenses here.

The other news of the day is a new Gear Article. The Mirrorless EVF Size parallels our orginal  DSLR Viewfinder Sizes article which to this month, is one of the top 10 visited articles on Neocamera. While it was written over 9 years ago, it’s  content is updated in real-lime from our product database. The same is true of the Mirrorless EVF Size article. Be sure to check it out if EVFs on mirrorless cameras are important to you.

Nikon D810

Nikon recently unveiled their newest digital camera, the D810 which replaces the D800E and D800 twins. They have taken the no anti-alias filter route and provided it with completely upgraded internals:

  • A new 36 megapixels CMOS sensor with base sensitivity of ISO 64, expandable down to 32. The normal sensitivity range reach ISO 12,800 and expands to 51,200.
  • An EXPEED 4 processor with unprecedented image-parameters for finer control over image rendition than any other digital camera.
  • A revised shutter and mirror mechanism to reduce vibrations. The D810 can sustain 5 FPS continuous shooting with a deeper buffer than its predecessor.

Many more processing and capabilities have been refined too. Read Neocamera’s Nikon D810 review to see what it can do.
