It seems odd that Nikon didn't have a fast 28mm prime in its portfolio. Now it does.
One of Canon's most popular lenses gets better optics, coatings, and bokeh--but costs $1,000 more and doesn't get image stabilization. New wide-angle prime lenses do get it, though.
The Japanese company has updated its compact camera line with the GRD III, whose optics should appeal to enthusiasts.
Tamron announced yesterday that its 28mm-300mm f/3.5-5.6 XR Di VC LD Aspherical Macro lens now has a built-in AF motor allowing it to be used with Nikon's D60, D40x, and D40
The new pro camera has better autofocus, overhauled mechanics, and a price just shy of $6,000. Also new at Photokina: Schneider Kreuznach's 28mm leaf-shutter lens.
The SX260 HS, Elph 530 HS, Elph 320 HS, and D20 round out Canon's 2012 PowerShots.
The new 12-megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP8 features a 28mm wide-angle, 4.6x Leica DC lens, and promises fast start-up and AF speeds.
Ricoh has announced the second firmware upgrade to its 10MP GR Digital II 28mm single focal length compact camera.

The Ricoh Caplio R7 is a truly impressive compact camera, boasting 8 megapixels, 28mm wide angle lens with 7x zoom and optical image stabilisation -- but you probably won't see it on the high street
