Nikon surely is not going to give up an inch in their fight with Canon. In an interview released at the CP+ show they confirmed cheaper and more affordable Z cameras are under considerations. I can imagine them launching a new Z5 entry level camera as soon as it gets to challenge the new Canon EOS-RP. Wondering if Sony will do the same…
L-rumors.com reports about a new announcment made right now by Sigma CEO Yamaki: The new Full Frame L-mount Foveon camera will be launched in 2020 and not in 2019 as previously reported by Sigma And the camera will feature a new 20,43 Megapixel three layer sensor which accounts for a total of 60,9 Megapixels!
Here is an image of the new sensor:
They also announced a partnership with TSI for the development and production of the new FF Foveon sensor:
Sigma CEO Hirai said the development of the lens is almost done and final testing started.
Olympus registered a new camera in Asia. This is likely to be a new OMD model (E-M5III or E-m1III). For sure this is NOT a PEN-FII because this line seems to have been killed by Olympus :(
The new OMD will be announced during the second half of the year.
Sony confirmed it’s committment to the APS-C line in an interview released at DC.watch. They also made it clear new APS-C products will be released in 2019 and that “high end” APS-C is also a priority.
