New NEX-7 and new G1X successor to be announed next week!

Share

Sony will announce the new NEX-6 and NEX-7 successor next week on February 12. Actually there will be one new camera that will replace both models. NO big improvement on the Image Quality front. Main improvements are on the speed side of the camera.

And Canon will announce the G1X successor. No exact date yet but I guess it will be announced right before the start of the CP+ show on February 13.

P.S.: I am still not sure about it but there are also rumors about a new entry level E-mount FF camera from Sony. Don’t know if it’s a real deal or not!

New Fuji lenses shown at a presentation

The polish site Optyczne shared these pictures of the mockup XF lenses shown at a Fuji presentation. Quite some great lenses Fuji will release here! Wish other systems would follow Fuji way of “thinking” lenses. Fuji seems to be always spot on with their few but great lenses.

First (fake) images of the Leica T :)

Share

Steve Huff posted these very likely FAKE(!) images of the Leica T APS-C mirrorless system camera. As you know the new Leica system will be launched in April and the camera and zooms are actually made by Panasonic. Only the prime lenses will be made in Germany by  Leica itself.

We will see in April how fake these images were 😉

Using Fuji X Lenses vs Canon Full Frame Lenses

Share

A lot of people (as in photographers that I know) have been talking about replacing or augmenting their current DSLR systems with mirrorless systems. The benefits are hard to ignore (See: Comparing the Fuji X-E2 and the Canon 5D Mark III) as mirrorless systems are less expensive and lighter and smaller. There are always trade offs of course and the mirrorless systems are often more awkward to use quickly and difficult for those with larger hands. For me personally, the portability side of mirrorless systems more than makes up for the downsides. But what about lenses? How do focal lengths differ between the systems?  This isn’t so much a mirrorless vs DSLR debate as much as a cropped vs full frame sensor. While there is one full frame mirrorless system (The Sony A7 and A7R), it currently lacks options for native lenses and costs more than double than the more popular cropped mirrorless models (Olympus OM-D E-M1, and Fuji X-E2 and just announced Fuji X-T1).

New Sony E-mount cameras with on sensor stabilization?

Share

Sony EU sites updated their page and now claim that non OSS APS-C E-mount lenses are stabilized via the on sensor stabilization!

Just check out the sites at Sony Germany (Click here), Sony UK (Click here), Sony France (Click here), Sony Italy (Click here), Sony Holland (Click here).

These all show you the image I posted on top of this post. Well, I guess next week Sony will announce quite some exciting E-mount stuff 😉
