Gone is stuck-in-molasses feeling in Nikon View 5.5 for Mac
If you've felt like Nikon View for Mac has been stuck in molasses ever since the release of v5 earlier this year, then v5.5, released today as a free download from Nikon USA's web site, is for you. Prior to v5.5, the program struggled to keep up with simple tasks such as selecting multiple thumbnails, often registering mouse clicks a full second or more after the click. Now, mouse clicks register immediately, and attempts to browse large folders of photos don't send Nikon View into a spinning cursor depression. Instead, thumbnails begin to draw soon after the folder is selected. Previewing both JPEGs and NEFs is also reasonably quick. In other words, Nikon View 5.5 for Mac, running in either OS X 10.2.3 or 9.2.2, now nearly matches the sprightly feel of its Windows counterpart.

Nikon announces digital-only DX Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G
Just when it seemed clear that the direction for digital SLR photography was nothing but full frame image sensors, along comes Nikon. Announced today, the DX Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G, a lens that's purpose-built for the company's line of digital SLR cameras, signals that Nikon may not be dispensing with its smaller-than-35mm image sensor approach anytime soon. This spells good news for those seeking less costly professional digital SLRs in the future, since smaller sensors are inherently cheaper to manufacture, but bad news for those who perceive that a sensor the same size as a 35mm film frame as being the ultimate digital goal.
