Interesting info from CP+: Tamron considering making RF and Z mount lenses

Valuetech shared some insights collected at the Cp+ show:

  1. Sony Germany expects to lose some market share this year
  2. Third party manufacturer confirm the larger mount from Canon RF, Nikon Z and Leica L gives some small design advantage over the Sony E-mount. Particularly when it comes to get less Vignetting. Still, all confirmed that yes you can do superfast lenses for Sony E-mount too but this isn’t going to happen anyway for obvious reasons (too costly, too big).
  3. Tamron is considering making native RF and Z mount lenses. But they are not sure if they will simply adapt the existing FE lenses.
  4. Tamron said they will no mor make lenses for Sony A-mount
  5. Nikon said a camera above the Z7 is likely to come

Canon officially confirms IBIS is coming in future R cameras

Amateur Photographer interviewed Canon managers and here are some highlights:

About the future of the EOS-M:
That’s a product development for the future so I can’t go into detail, and the market will dictate what sort of direction we should take. If the customers do want a small size, lightweight mount I believe there is room for that, so as we said […] we will continue to work with the M mount.

About IBIS on the EOS-R:
In terms of IBIS, we are looking into it for the future. We believe IBIS will work together hand in hand with optical IS lenses, such as the ones you see in front of you, to offer better features.

Canon EOS-R High End camera:
yes, we are considering a higher-end premium body, as you mention.

About the future of the digital camera market:
The pace of the shift to mirrorless has slowed down a bit here in Japan and the mirrorless market share for cameras stands at about 60%. As you may know, Canon has a history of not always being first in the market with new technology, but we are very good at catching up, going beyond and becoming the leader.

To me it doesn’t sound like the M system has a real future :)

Canon’s next mirrorless camera will have 70+ Megapixels?

That Canon’s next R model will be a High Megapixel camera is 100% certain. Latest unconfirmed rumor is that this camera will be announce in late 2019 and feature a new 70+ megapixel sensor and IBIS.

I am pretty sure both Nikon and Sony will have such a model release too. We are getting slowly closer to the 100 megapixel barrier. Get ready to buy a ton of external hard drives :)
