These are the first images of the new Leica T and the first two lenses, the Vario-Elmar T f3.5-5.6/18-56mm ASPH and the Summicron T f2/23mm ASPH.

There will be also an external EVF!

    Leica goes mainstream. The lenses don't have an aperture ring, so it's automatically controlled. Accordingly the "T" will have autofocus and I guess also a touchscreen, Filter thread is 46mm like my m43 glasses. Nice, no need to spend money for ne...

The brand new Sony A7s can now be preorders in Australia for 3499 AUSD (via DL). With current conversion this is around $3200 US dollars or 2350 Euro. A  competitive price (if correct).

    Keep in mind Australian prices are usually a lot higher than other countries

    You don´t need to go that far, in Sweden it can be preordered for 2199 eur: www.dealsrunner.com

Well, this is a small revolution for digital photography! Finally Lytro released a real useful Light Fiel camera, the new Illum! It has a much larger 1 inch sensor (the predecessor had a 1/3 inch sensor) and an astonishing 30-250mm f/2.0 constant aperture lens!

You can get all the info and see image samples at https://www.lytro.com/

This might well become the future of photography don't you think?

    I, on the other hand, welcome such development. To me an ideal camera would be the one that allows to capture intensity, direction, wavelength, polarization, etc. essentially shifting all the manipulation to post process. It does take away somethi...

    No this is pointless. And I wouldn't call it "photography"...
    I wouldn't buy it even at the same price of a conventional camera.

    Great camera indeed, we'll see if iq is good enough.

    Is it possible to make an ilc with this concept?

A newly published Fuji patent (PDF file here) discloses the design of the 18-250mm f/3.6-6.5 lens. This would become a terrific travelers lens!

There is no info yet if and when such a lens will be released.

    I still see no point in superzoom lenses for CSC. Small body with poor grip and huge lens do not make a good pair.

    It´s even f6,5, which is one of the slowest superzoom lens (for APSC) on the market.

    Not bad, if image quality will be good. There's no scarcity of super zoom lenses on the market, but to the best of my knowledge only two of them are decent, and both are not designed for mirrorless (Canon 28-300 L for full frame SLRs and Panasonic...

Double firmware release today:

Fuji released the X100S firmware 1.20 / X100 firmware 2.10 to add support the new TCL-X100 converter.

Panasonic improved the movie quality performance of the Nocticron lens (firmware here).

Well, the most popular mirrorless camera isn't an OMD, a Fuji or Sony A7r. It's the GoPro that is ALWAYS on top of the Amazon Ranking (Click here to see the list). And as you probably have heard a new 4K GoPRO is coming soon. But I guess most of us "normal" will not care as long as you can do such creative GoPRo videos like the one you see on top.

Hilarious!

    It looks like the length is in operational mode. When turned of i expect it to retract to less then 20 mm. There is also very little glass in this lens. That indicate very low cost and weight. I guess it will be a new kit zoom for the EOS-M series...

    Unless the lens retracts significantly from the quoted lens length when not in use and provides extraordinary iq, I really don't see any benefit this would bring over the 18-55 kit lens.
