Nikon Z 180-600mm f/5.6-6.3 VR Announced + Pre-Order Links

Nikon just announced the highly-anticipated 180-600mm f/5.6-6.3 VR! This lens has been several years in the making, beginning with the appearance of a 200-600mm “non-S” lens on Nikon’s roadmap in October of 2019.

Canon EOS R100 Announced: Basic Features, Great Price

The newest addition to Canon’s RF mount is the EOS R100, an entry-level APS-C mirrorless camera with a starting price of $479. Unsurprisingly, the EOS R100’s features are quite basic, and its tech feels a couple of generations old. But that’s by design – Canon’s goal here was price, not features.
