Nikon let a group of reporters loose on a crop of newly released Coolpix cameras and wide angle Nikkor lenses on the eve of PMA 2010. We put the Nikkor 24mm f/1.4 and 16-35mm f/4 lenses to work coupled to a D3S. Take a look at our full-res samples from the event.
What once was a trade show concept has become an imaging reality. A couple of years after the launch of the first Micro Four Thirds camera, the Panasonic G1, we're knee-deep in models from Panasonic and Olympus.

Canon announces today the arrival of a new digital Rebel - the Canon EOS Rebel T2i. The Rebel XSi drops out of their entry-level line to make way for the new flagship T2i. It boosts the feature set of the T1i with a sensor nearly identical to the almost-pro Canon EOS 7D. They introduce the T2i with a price starting under $1000.
Promotional materials on Olympus's site last week featured the image of a mystery PEN camera obscured by a hand. Today, they move that hand away and reveal the third Micro Four Thirds system in their digital PEN series, the E-PL1. They've offered DCR a first-look, pre-production unit and we've had our hands all over it ever since it arrived.
After teasing the release of a new digital PEN camera last week, Olympus has officially taken the wraps off the E-PL1. It's their third Micro Four Thirds model, a step-down alternative to the E-P1 and E-P2. It compromises some of the features and build quality of the previous models to bring the price down, and it adds a built-in flash to the lineup for the first time.
With CES 2010 only days away, Samsung has just made the NX10 interchangeable-lens camera official.

A trio of lenses accompany the launch of the "hybrid" NX10.
The Sony Alpha DSLR-A550 tops off the consumer-oriented portion of the Alpha lineup.

Our first look includes sample images and our initial impressions of the Sony Alpha A550.
