A couple of news items

I found these two snippets of news which maybe of interest.

Lexar Professional 133X cards, tested
Pre-PMA 2006: Lexar has today announced new professional series storage cards with a speed rating of 133X (20MB/sec). Available in both Compact Flash and Secure Digital formats at a range of capacities these professional cards also include Lexar's proprietary Write Acceleration technology. These cards promise to be the fastest currently available, we have had a selection of them on hand for a few days and have some test results inside.

And.

Zeiss Lenses for Nikon F Mount
After a mini-teaser campaign and numerous leaks it's now official. Zeiss has announced that is to introduce a range of new 'ZF' lenses which will have a Nikon F Mount (although it's not clear at this stage how much communication will go on between the lens and body). These new lenses appear to be the result of Kyocera's decision to ditch Contax. The first lenses to be introduced will be the Planar T* 50 mm F1.4 ZF and the Planar T* 85 mm F1.4 ZF. These lenses are slated to become available in 'Spring 2006' with 'several more.. ..during 2006' (at Photokina in September).

Interesting to note that they've 'caught up' with the Sandisk Extreme III. With the Sandisk cards going cheap (see the post elsewhere here), Lexar have their work cut out.

Also with those cards going cheap is that a sign of the pending introduction of an even faster range of cards from Sandisk.

Zeiss lenses for Nikons Looks like Nikon users may be getting another great source for lenses. Although at what price.

Sounds about right - the 35mm f/2 Summicron on my Leica was about £900 as I recall...
