Nikon apologizes for the delay of the new Nikkor 300mm f/4E PF ED VR lens, forgets to mention their “silent recall”

Pin It

Nikon Japan issued an apology for the delay of the Nikkor 300mm f/4E PF ED VR lens - because of the high demand, sale exceeded factory production output and the lens will be out of stock for a while. Of course Nikon forgot to mentioned their "silent recall" caused by VR issues that was the main reason for the delay.

Cambo Actus and Nikon D810 (part 1)

Pin It

This post is by Laurent Thion who shares his experiences using the Nikon D810 with the new Cambo Actus and medium format lenses (click on images for larger view):

Cambo Actus and Nikon D810: a new great opportunity to use many lenses (and D810) at their best possibilities

A few years ago, I wrote an article about the CAMBO X2 Pro and Nikon D800 and included some typical photography examples. I've just upgraded my set with the new Cambo Actus,  the excellent Nikon D810 and some "new" interesting lenses never tested by DxO :-).

New Cambo Actus system

The ACTUS has both similarities and differences with the Pro X2: same concept (lens panel - body with bellows - camera mount) with a great difference. The interchangeable front lens panels, which are available in the following formats: Copal 0, Copal 1 (on request), Hasselblad C Bayonet, M39 Leica thread, Mamiya RZ/RB bayonet, Mamiya 645 Pro bayonet, Leica R Bayonet (for mirrorless bodies only) and the Nikon-F Bayonet (for mirrorless bodies only, can only swing and tilt.

The fixed rear panel is set only for horizontal and vertical shift. An other difference is that the exchangeable bayonets (for Sony E-Mount, Nikon F, Canon EOS, Fuji X-series and Micro 4/3) are fixed with 4 screws on the fixed rear panel and not on the bellows. It's not possible to change the bayonet very quickly.
