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. This time we look at Marion Péhée, the Voigtlander 50mm f2.0 lens, the Nikon Z 5, autofocus, Reddit Photoclass 2024 and John Warnock.

  • In Traveling by Train Between Dire Dawa and Dewelé, French photographer Marion Péhée goes to Ethiopia "to tell the story of the end of a railway line that crossed an entire country, to photograph at that moment, something that is destined to soon disappear."
  • Kirk Tuck shoots some Midday, Urban Landscape Photography with his Leica SL and the Voigtlander 50mm f2.0 APO-Lanthar. "Sharp like a scalpel. Bursting with personality. Goading me to enjoy the 'miracle' of vignetting," he jokes.
  • In Why Nikon's APS-C Z-Mount Is Worth Another Look in 2023, Dan Bracaglia explains why he moved to a four-year-old camera, bought second hand. It was the glass.
  • In Autofocus Is Improved, Thom Hogan questions the continually claims of improved autofocus when "some camera brands have been focusing 'perfectly' for quite some time." What's improved?
  • In Reddit Photoclass 2024, Chelsea London announces instructors, changes to the curriculum and a new sub starting in January.
  • We mourn the passing on Saturday of Adobe co-founder John Warnock at the age of 82. The page description language PostScript, which he co-invented, launched the desktop publishing revolution.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look five years back. And please support our efforts...
