GADGET REPORT~SigMa F1.4 EX DG 50mm



Finally I picked up the sigma 50mm lens. I had a choice between this and the canon 1.4 50mm but I choose the sigma. Why? because of the sharpness of the images that this lens produces especially when shooting video. I love the bokeh effect this lens produces and I have to say the lens hood that comes with it is quite nice to. 🙂

The rumors are pointing to Sony getting ready to offer up new details at the show on the next generation PlayStation. At the same time, Microsoft is tipped to be talking about the next Xbox as well. Neither firm is expected to do much more than tease though.

We already know about the Wii U, but Nintendo is expected to talk price and launch date at the show. I suspect the Wii U might come in at the $500 range. I have a feeling that premium next gen consoles will be expensive.
