These are some stunning new images of the Nikon 58mm f/0,95 Z lens.

Oh boy! GearHeads like us will  go crazy looking at these brand new images of the Nikon 58mm f/0,95 Z lens. And thanks to Nikon photographer Yusuf Kathawala for the first time we can see this lens mounted on the Nikon Z camera. And I have to say that this lens looks less big than I expected.

This image in particular should help to give you an idea:

On the left you see the 58mm lens and on the right the 105mm f/1.4 F-mount lens.

I know it’s still a big lens. But maybe not as crazy big as we all expected. Here are some more images:

 

Now let’s hope the original $6,000 rumored price tag is wrong and the lens will cost half of that. If not I will have to sell a kidney :)

Ted Forbes and Matt Granger thoughts about the new Fujifilm GFX 50R and 100S announcements

Ted Forbes:

Fujifilm have announced the GFX 50R and the Fujifilm 100S concept cameras. Both of these are medium format. The GFX 50R is a compact, “rangefinder” style version of their previous camera – the Fujifilm GFX 50S. It brings over the same sensor in a much smaller and more portable configuration. The price point is considerably lower as well. Also added is Bluetooth integration. The Fujifilm GFX 100S concept is a camera to be released in 2019. This is where things get particularly interesting. The 100S will feature a 102 megapixel sensor, IBIS (in-body image stabilization) as well as 4k video and phase detection autofocus across the entire sensor. I’m guessing this will be an entirely new sensor likely not built by Sony. But my favorite announcement today is the Fujifilm partnership with Phase One in the Capture One software. Capture One has not supported any medium format cameras other than Phase One until now. This is a huge step forward. I love Capture One and use it all the time. But this has been a stumbling block for Capture One – they have to support all cameras if they intend to gain traction in the raw image editor application space.

And here is Matt Granger talking about the new Fuji cameras:
