First leaked image and specs of the new Olympus E-M1III

The Internet Rumors declared that Olympus is dead. But somehow this stubborn company doesn’t want to accept that “fact” and they keep releasing new products :)

In mid February they will announce the new E-M1III (first leaked image on top) and probably 1-2 new MFT lenses. Some early camera specs:

– Has one more joystick
– Same battery as E-M1II
– New processor
– Can do Handheld High Resolution shots

So this will be basically E-M1X without the unnecessary built.in grip….

This might be a year were we will NOT get any new medium format mirrorless camera :(

Fujirumors reports that there will be no new GFX camera this year from Fuji. And I think there is little chance Hasselblad will launch a new mirrorless medium format camera too. Pity, I would love to get this X-T styled medium format camera :(

Still we will get new lenses for medium format cameras. In two weeks Fuji will announce this new 45-100mm f/4.0:

Wild Canon EOS R Mark II rumored specs…

There is a veeeery wild rumor (or guess?) going around the web about the possible EOS-R II specs. So please take it with a huge grain of salt:

  • 32MP image sensor
  • IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation)
  • DIGIC X (A different version than the CPU featured on the EOS-1D Mark III)
  • 12fps
  • ISO 100 – 51,200
  • 1 SD card slot
  • 1 CFexpress slot
  • No crop 4K video with DPAF (Dual Pixel Autofocus)
  • No RAW video
  • 5mp EVF
  • May get a new naming scheme

So while I doubt those specs are accurate it’s definitely true that Canon will release a lot of new camera and lenses for the RF mirrorless system. They are trying hard to outpace Sony to reduce their gap with the Alpha system.
