With PhotoPlus Expo only weeks away, there are plenty of new products to write about. Since yesterday morning, we've seen a new lens from Zeiss, a DSLR and lens from Pentax and, just after midnight, the latest full-frame camera from Nikon—the D610.

For more details, visit our sister site's blog PDNPulse (links to those write-ups are below), but here's a glimpse at the products that were just introduced:

lensThe first announcement came from Zeiss with a new 55mm, f/1.4 lens. It's the first in Zeiss' new Otus line of high quality DSLR lenses and Zeiss promises the same quality and performance with the Otus 55mm and Canon or Nikon DSL as one would expect from a medium format system.
