As you can see from images below, at widest setting, there is a huge variation in distortion – but how will they be in a studio setting? Check out Matt’s video to see, and don’t forget the 2020 Business deal Matt is part of that’s raising money for charity.

The best news of today: Fuji finally made a 65mm f/1.3 (FF equivalent) fast lens for medium format!

My personal favorite news of today’s announcement is the fact we will finally get a super fast lens for the medium format system. The new 80mm f/1.7 is equivalent to “63.2mm f/1.34” in Full Frame. And it’s actually NOT a big lens. Here is is compared with the 23mm f/4.0:

And here it is compared with other fast Full Frame lenses:

Now, the bad news is that the lens will be available in 2021 only. No listen to me dear Fuji managers: I am willing to jump into your GF system if in 2021 you will launch me exactly this prototype you showed us last year:

Yes, a medium format X-T styled camera for $5,000. That’s what I want! And believe me this would kick all current FF cameras in their butt :)


Canon EOS-RP sensor gets tested at DxOmark: “not that far behind the sensors in the Nikon Z 6 and Sony A7 III”

DxOmark published the full EOS-RP sensor test:

As the first and only entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera currently available, the Canon EOS RP provides an easier entry into the full-frame mirrorless market than the EOS R from a pricing point of view. However, it might be too much to expect the RP sensor to match the current leading-edge sensor performance in the considerably more expensive mid-range mirrorless models. At the moment, those wanting better sensor performance from a Canon full-frame mirrorless camera, particularly with regard to dynamic range, will have to spend considerably more on the Canon EOS R.

This said, noise levels and color accuracy are very good and not that far behind the sensors in the Nikon Z 6 and Sony A7 III. These traits, combined with its inherent portability and generally good mix of features and ergonomics, make the RP an attractive option for travel, street, and yes, even landscape photographers.
