Nikon says that “In theory” they could make f/0,65 Z-mount lenses!

The french website Mizuwari interviewed Nicolas Gillet from Nikon France. Here are some key info:

1) Nikon wants to beat Sony in the European Full Frame market (Currently Sony leads it).
2) With the Noct-Nikkor 58mm f / 0.95, they just want to show what we are capable of doing when they detach ourselves from all the F-mount limits.
3) Nikon’s optical engineers have calculated that the Z mount can accept lenses up to f/0.65!

I am pretty sure Nikon has no plan to make a f/0,65 lens. It owuld be terribly expensive and terribly big. But good to know they can do it :)


These are the two next Sony FF sensors that will be sold to all camera manufacturers

SonyAlphaRumors got realiable info about the next two Full Frame sensors that will go on market in 2019:
Sensor 1:
16 channels (which is crazy, normally it should be 8),
Sensor 2:
on-chip PDAF
These sensors can be bought by any company. I guess Pentax will use them first and maybe Nikon later. I doubt Canon will use them as this would mean they would have to give up their whole sensor department :)

Sony officially registered a new mirrorless system camera in Asia. Is the A7000 coming soon?

Sony has been surprisingly quiet at Photokina and PhotoPlus. For the first time in more than ten years they did NOT announce a new camera. I guess Sony postponed all camera released to see what the competition would launch.

And well today we got some good news: Sony registered a new camera model in Asia which according to Nokishita is a new E-mount system camera. The registration doesn’t unveil if that’s an APS-C or FF model but SonyAlphaRumors is pretty sure the camera will be the new A7000.

The question now is…when will they announce it?

This is the official list of yet to be announced Nikon-Canon-Leica-Olympus-Ricoh cameras

The Ricoh GRIII

First Olympus E-M1X specs: 20MP, 18 fps, 7+ EV stabilization and price close to $3,000!

43rumors unveiled the first specs of the new Olympus OMD E-M1X camera:

Name: E-M1X OMD camera
Sensor: 20MP

Frame rate: 18fps
7.5+ EV
Body Size: 144.37 x 146.765 x 75.345mm (body with a built in vertical grip)
High Res: Can shoot handheld High Resolution images (around 80MP)
Photography focus: Sports and Wildlife shooters
Price: close to $3,000

Launch: January 2019

And one source shared some more insights on this camera:

The camera is the perfect working tool. It’s worth the high price of $3,000, I guess from what I’ve seen. Lying in the hand like the legendary E-1 (see picture on top). It’s even better balanced than the MKII. You hardly notice the little extra weight. With the 300 F4 as well as with a 45 F 1.8 the camera sticks in your hand as if glued on.

The sensor exceeds all expectations, as does the stabilizer. The camera has 3 types of high res shoots. What really pleases me is that finally the charging via 15 V USB port works. Then I can finally charge my Powerbanks via solar cells while hiking in Nepal and then connect them to the camera. But the best will be the extremely high data transfer rate when transferring live data to a server over the air.

The charger charges the battery extremely fast, thanks for the investment of an additional $4.80 in development. for those who have waited a long time, the mc-20 also comes. So, look forward to the launch of the camera at the end of january 2019 and 2 more “small cameras” next year. You will smile when you see them.

No doubt Olympus will make a great camera but the E-M1X price is close to the Sony A7rIII and Nikon Z7 Full Frame cameras…will Olympus really sell enough of E-M1X cameras to make some profit?
