Olympus refuses to give up and will release a new MFT lens soon :)

You stubborn Olympus! You refuse to listen those reputable rumor sites narrating back in autumn that by January-March 2020 you would close the camera division. You should listen to the holy voice of the sacred Internet, the land of the rightful trolls and anonymous salvation army.

Olympus ignores these apocalyptic calls for the end of MFT and yesterday they registered a new MFT lens in Russia (the land of fake news so there might be hope MFT is dead for real?). The new lens is coded “IM022” and will be announced soon. It might be a new 100-400mm MFT but who knows, maybe Olympus will shut down the camera division next week right before the lens gets announced. In Youtubers-Influencers we trust this might be the case.

This sarcastic post is dedicated to all those influencers, youtubers, bloggers making their clickbait living by narrating the death of Olympus during the past five years :)

Canon EOS-R5 will be announced on July 9

The Canon EOS-R5 will be announced on July 9. And we will finally get the full price info which for now is rumored to be something around $4,000.  Sony will announce their A7sII successor a couple of days earlier. But while the EOS-R5 will definitely record 8K it’s not sure if the Sony will do the same!

Stay tuned…this is going to be an exciting time :)

Sony is rumored to launch the As7II successor and 12-24mm GM lens by end of June

After 5 very long years we might finally get this damn new As7III :)

The camera is rumored ot be announced at the very end of June along the new 12-24mm f/2.8 GM lens. There is no info on the possible specs yet but I don’t think it will have 8K like the Canon EOS-R5. Afterall the A7sIII is aimed at professionals and they surely prefer to have a high quality 4K video than crappy 8K.

Next two announcements: Sigma lens on June 18 and Sony press event (public?) on June 26

Sigma will announce their new 100-400mm E and L-mount lens and the 16/30/56mm F1.4 DC DN APS-C primes on June 18.

The bigger new is that Sony invited the press for an even on June 26. We are going to get the 12-24mm GM and likely also a new Sony A7sII successor. But it’s unclear yet of the press will have to sign an NDA or if the camera+lens will be announced to the general public on the very same day
