Full Sony RX100M3 specs!

This is going to be a hell of a compact camera! We just got the specs via SAR and this is what the new camera can do:
20MP sensor (same as RX100/M2 models)
ISO 125-25600
24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens
Built in View finder (SVGA OLED Tru-Finder 1440k dots)
Tiltable screen (180 degrees up)
Record in XAVC S format (Same format of the Sony A7s but with no 4K output option).
Almost same size and weight as the current RX100/M2 models.
I have been told all other specs are the same of the current RX100II model.
Price is said to be around 800-850 Euro in Europe. Should be around $800-850 in USA (US price is my guess)

This will be the best compact camera ever made!

Fuji to launch the impressive 16mm f/1.4 and 140-400mm lenses!

Fujirumors unveiled the updated roadmap according to their trusted sources. First of all Fuji will launch an impressive XF 16mm f/1.4 lens at Photokina!

And they will also launch a 120-400mm OIS lens which surely will become popular among bird photographers and spies :)

The third good news is that the soon to come 18-135mm lens will become 1 stop faster at the tele end. Instead of the expected f/5.6 the lens will have a f/4.8 aperture at 135mm!

Fuji really knows what lenses has to be done to make a system popular!

Samyang announces three new Cine Lenses for Mirrorless system cameras!

Samyang announced three new Cine lenses for mirrorless system cameras: The 7,5mm T/3.8 fisheye Cine lens which comes for Micro Four Thirds mount only. The other two, the 10mm and 12mm T/2.2 Cine lenses will be available for all mirrorless systems.

PRESS RELEASE:

Nearly a month after their market release, Samyang 10mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS CS and Samyang 12 mm f/2.0 NCS CS lenses are now available in their equivalent cine versions: Samyang 10mm T3.1 Cine and 12mm T2.2 Cine. Samyang VDSLR cine lenses feature aperture and focus rings with sprocket wheels controlling their work through Follow Focus systems. This allows for noiseless and smooth adjustment of the above parameters during filming.

Samyang 10mm T3.1 Cine and 12mm T2.2 Cine have nanocrystal anti-reflective layer (NCS) that ensures better light transmission, increased resistance to light reflections and higher contrast, which improves optical resolution of the lenses.

Samyang 12 mm in photo and cine versions fills the gap among lenses dedicated for mirrorless cameras with APS-C sensor, large angle of view and high brightness. The lens has been designed for cameras fitted with a high resolution sensor (above 24 mln pixels). Samyang Optics company is renowned among clients for great quality optics offered at affordable prices. And this is also the case with 10mm and 12 lenses which provide technical parameters and optical potential that can easily compete with the best wide-angle prime and zoom lenses available on the market.

And last, but not least, the offer also includes Samyang 7.5mm T3.8 Fish-eye Cine. This is a cine version of a meticulously designed manual fish-eye lens which provides diagonal field of vision equal to 180 degrees. Despite its small size, Samyang 7.5mm T3.8 Cine produces images with splendid parameters and exceptional vividness, and the minimal focusing distance amounts to only 0.09 meters.
