One of our sources sent us these images of the new Zeiss Milvus 35mm f/1.4 lens. It will be announced within 24 hours. This is a manual focusing lens that will come in Nikon F and Canon EF mount. But of course it can be easily used on any mirrorless system camera too.
Ricoh is staring at huge losses as the market for multifunctional printers, Ricoh’s cash cow, evaporates and its global sales network racks up high costs.
Ricoh will have to go through a cost reduction target of 100 billion yen ($912 million) for the three years through March 2020. And this means job cuts. It’s unclear how this will affect the camera business from Ricoh-Pentax.
