    CP+, an international "comprehensive camera and photo imaging show", presents the latest products and technologies to help further development of the photo industry and photographic culture. This trade show provides the joy of "shooting", "viewing" and "connecting" pictures in versatile formats from Yokohama, a city of photography, and propagates photographic and imaging culture from Japan-the heartland of the photo imaging industry-to the world.

    Nikon 800/5.6 http://nikon.com/news/2013/0129_lens_06.htm

    AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR compatible with the Nikon FX format and offering a maximum aperture of f/5.6
    Focal length can be increased up to 1000 mm when the supplied teleconverter is used

    TOKYO - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR compatible with the Nikon FX format, and the dedicated AF-S TELECONVERTER TC800-1.25E ED.

    The AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR offers the longest focal length of 800 mm in the history of NIKKOR autofocus (AF) lenses, as well as a maximum aperture of f/5.6. Adoption of two fluorite and two ED lens elements has resulted in excellent rendering with effective reduction of chromatic aberration, superior resolution, and high contrast. In addition, Nano Crystal Coat makes for clear, consistent rendering with incredible ghost and flare suppression. When the teleconverter is used with this super-telephoto lens, the electromagnetic aperture enables stable exposure (AE) with high-speed continuous shooting. The lens is also equipped with a vibration reduction (VR) mechanism offering performance equal to an increase in shutter speed of 4.0 steps*. This new lens enables certain capture of the perfect moment for professional sports and press photographers, as well as advanced amateurs who enjoy photographing birds and wildlife.

    The dedicated 1.25x AF-S TELECONVERTER TC800-1.25E ED is supplied with the AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR. Together, a focal length of 1000 mm is achieved, making it the perfect combination for recording the dynamic movement or expressions of athletes from distances. What's more, the AF-S TELECONVERTER TC800-1.25E ED is Nikon's first teleconverter to be constructed with an ED lens element. It is designed specifically for use with the AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR to ensure the same level of performance available when the lens is used alone for incredibly sharp images.

    http://www.pentax.jp/english/news/2013/20130130_1.html

    PENTAX RICOH IMAGING COMPANY, LTD. is pleased to announce the launch of the PENTAX WG-3 and PENTAX WG-3 GPS digital compact cameras. In addition to the best waterproof and shock-resistant performance among PENTAX waterproof digital cameras, these new models feature a high-performance, large-aperture zoom lens and a dual shake-reduction system to capture high-quality images both in the water and in the field.

    Developed as the top-of-the-line models of the dependable, heavy-duty PENTAX WG series, the WG-3 and WG-3 GPS offer the series’ best waterproof performance (down to 14 meters underwater) and shock resistance (against a fall from a height of two meters). They also feature a newly designed, large-aperture, four-times optical zoom lens (with the maximum aperture of F2.0 at wide-angle end), a high-sensitivity, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, and a new-generation imaging engine to deliver high-quality, low-noise images — even in the water, at night and indoors where the subject is poorly illuminated. Adding such outstanding features as –10°C cold resistance, dual shake reduction system, Full HD movie recording (1920 × 1080n pixels) and a high-performance, wide-frame 3.0-inch LCD monitor, the WG-3 and WG-3 GPS perform dependably and brilliantly in a wide variety of demanding outdoor scenes.

    The PENTAX WG-3 GPS model also features advanced GPS functions to record position data and travel log data onto captured images — along with a pressure/altitude/depth gauge, a digital compass and a wireless recharging system — to facilitate outdoor shooting.

    I was hoping Pentax would release the k3, and finally let us pentaxians join the full frame revolution!
