In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Turnley captures Vladimir Putin, the Pentax KP, the Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 50mm f0.95 and Foodphoto Festival 2017.
- Straight in the Eye: Vladimir Putin by Peter Turnley was taken 16 years ago, "the first exclusive portrait of Putin since he had taken power," Turnley says. It has also never been published before.
- Derrick Story reviews the $1,099 Pentax KP in two parts. In Part One he covers the Mode dial, Function dial and other controls on the top panel. In Part Two he looks at the back panel's LCD, the menu system and other buttons and dials. In The Relentless Pursuit of Insanity, he reflects on his prep for the review with a few AL lenses.
- Jim Kasson bought the Mitakon Zhongyi Speedmaster 50mm f0.95 and likes it even if he still doesn't know what he'll use it for.
- The the Foodphoto Festival 2017 will be held in Vejle, Denmark, from May 18 to 21. It features a free exhibition in the famous Spinderihallerne and other locations throughout the city, plus workshop and conferences.
