Our Zeiss CP.2 collection is complete!

On this blog, Through The Looking Glass, I discuss whether the Sony NEX-7 is worth twice the cost of the NEX-5N; we announce the addition of the 50mm and 100mm t/2.1 CP.2 Compact Primes from Zeiss, which complete our rentable collection across the whole range, and in other lens news we unveil the awesome AF DC-Nikkor 135mm f/2D lens, which allows you to shift the bokeh in front of or behind the focal plane; Manfrotto/Gitzo tripod trade-in event at our retail store, which gives huge discounts with a trade of almost any tripod; and we share the news of our updated ARRI ALEXAs with the new firmware (SUP 5.0), allowing for framerates up to 120fps.
