Nikon Z series lens road map

12 January 2019 - 10:52 AM

Hi all,


Nikon released their updated roadmap for lens development with their Z series mirrorless full frame camera at the CES show.

Sadly, there are no (announced) plans for either macro or fisheye lenses in the next 3 years. Of course, existing F mount lenses can be used with the FTZ lens adapter. It is hard to know how or if this will affect IQ or performance.

Dear Wetpixel community,


It is with tremendous sadness that I share the news that Wetpixel member and contributor Dean Burman (DeanB) suddenly passed away on New Year's day. Dean was a filmmaker, with numerous film credits including a film featuring some amazing behavior footage of pike in an award-winning short film called "Lair of the Water Wolf." His input into the Wetpixel forums was immense, with over 3,000 posts and he was always prepared to offer support, encouragement, and advice both on and offline. It is true to say that he was often the life and soul of the party but he was also a thinker, deeply concerned about the plight of our natural world and issues of social justice.

I remember many wonderful interactions with Dean over the years. He had the enviable attribute of being able to make serious points while keeping the conversation light-hearted. During one conversation, we were moaning about equipment issues but his sense of humor meant that we both ended up in fits of laughter! 


Dean is survived by his daughter and parents and our hearts go out to them along with his many other friends at what must be a devastating time. 


Please feel free to share thoughts, memories, and images of Dean in this thread.


Go well, Dean...

As many members of the Wetpixel community start their holidays, we would like to wish you all a very festive season. We hope that: If you share gifts, you will get the imaging tools that you desire. If you are lucky enough to be diving, your subjects are plentiful, and if you are sharing time with friends and family, you have much joy and happiness.

Author, musician, photographer, scuba pioneer and explorer Bob Halstead has died after an illness.


Bob qualified to dive in 1968 in the Bahamas and moved to Papua New Guinea in the late 1970s, becoming the first person to promote dive tourism in PNG. Widely credited as having invented the genre (and coined the term) of "muck diving," Bob was well known for exploring areas that other divers had not visited, in a quest for new species and unique environments. 

Please feel free to share memories, thoughts, and images in memory of a life well lived
