Back in February I reported how Zenit would come back “to make luxury devices, analogous to the Leica”. Well it really didn’t take a long time for them to show us their first product. These are the first images of their new Zenitar 50mm f/0.95 lens!
This is the E-mount version but Gavriloart reports other mirrorless system mounts will likely be supported too. I guess MFT and X-mount camera owners can certainly expect to get this lens in their respective native mounts.

There is no info about price, detailed specs and shipping date. But I will keep you updated as soon as I get more info about it!

Fuji will announce the new X-T2 by end June-early July

Solid source at Fujirumors confirmed the X-T2 will be launched the last week of June or early July at latest. And here are some specs hints:

EVF refresh: it’s going to be the same or better, possibly with the Pro2 matching it after a firmware update. Bear in mind the T2’s will be larger.
Continuous burst: I’m told the preproduction T2s have a deeper buffer; I’d expect that to be updated on the Pro2, too.
AF: ditto
Touch screen: I’ve been told preproduction units don’t have one, and I’ve been told they do. This is the only aspect of the whole camera that my sources haven’t been consistent on. I’ve not noticed Patrick speak much about a touch screen, or anybody else, so I’m assuming there won’t be one.
Dual cards: obviously it will have two slots.

DUAL PIXEL CMOS AF (AUTO-FOCUS)
The ME200S-SH camera’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF (Auto-Focus) technology helps provide smooth and consistent autofocus, so that f ocus transitions are natur al looking and subjects can remain focused even as they move- particularly helpful in remote or gimbal shooting situations.
