Every year, the Photo Plus expo gives us a chance to check out new gear for the first time in the flesh. This year was no exception. While many of the products had already been announced, this is the first time we -- and in some cases anyone -- has had a chance to go hands-on. Here's a collection of some of the newest products at the show.
Zeiss 25mm F/2 Distagon Lens
According to the fine folks at the Zeiss booth, we were among the first 50 people ever to touch their new manual-focus, wide-angle lens. It's set to debut at the beginning of next year, but they say it'll likely be the middle of the first quarter before the bigger shipments start hitting shelves for $1,700 each. Like other Zeiss glass, the zoom ring feels sturdy and incredibly smooth, and it's extremely sharp. We tried the Canon mount, which will be available first, and the focus indicator seemed spot on.
