Sony big April event: Two new FE lenses and a High End E-mount camera!

It looks like we are finally getting some reliable rumors about the upcoming Sony April announcement. Sony plans to launch the following new E-mount stuff:

  1. 16.-35mm f/2.8 GM
  2. 100-400mm FE G
  3. New Sony High End E-mount camera

The High End E-mount camera is rumored to be displayed at the NAB show. This is probably going to be an ultimate “hybrid” camera with serious video performance and no overheating issue…LOL :)

I don’t think this is going to be a purely sort of Canon C100 cinema oriented DSLR styled camera. I heard the camera is good for sports photographers too as it has about 20fps and the best autofocus system of all mirrorless system cameras (at least that’s what Sony marketing claims).

Fuji is really working on a Very High End X camera!

Trusted sources at Fujirumors confirmed that Fuji is developing a new Very High End X camera that will be placed above the X-Pro2 and X-T2. Those are the key aspects of the camera:

  • Correct: Fujifilm is working on the ultimate X-series X-Trans APS-C camera
  • Design based on X-T line (We don’t know the name yet, but it’s should not be “X-T3“)
  • The camera is still under development, hence the camera price has not yet been set
  • The only sure thing is that the camera will be more expensive than any other X-series camera currently on the market
  • Best Fuji APS-C camera for video work

This sounds like a sort of X-T camera on steroids with all the best stills and video tech Fuji has to offer. I like it! But I am not surethat at $4,000-$5,000 this will really sell…or am I wrong?

Zeiss keeps teasing the new Batis FE lens…

Zeiss keeps posting images shot on the yet to be released new Batis telephoto portrait prime lens for the Sony E-mount system. There are no official specs yet although we bet this to be a new 135mm lens (F/2.8 or slightly faster).

One the image you can see on top of this article you can evaluate the Bokeh performance which seems to be rather excellent in my view!
