Confirmed once more: Leica’s next medium format camera will be mirrorless and retain the S-mount

Over a year ago Leica posted this cool Easter egg image teasing a new mirrorless medium format camera. Phototrend now got an official confirmation from Leica that the medium format camera will be mirrorless. Phototrend also writes that the this camera will “retain the S-mount and remain compatible with SLR lenses”. I am surprised it keeps the S-mount. I would have expected it to have a new mount with shorter flange distance and just add a free adapter for S-mount lenses!

TTArtisan is considering making a CAMERA

The TTartisan CEo talked to Richard Wong and was very open about their future roadmap. There will be new 35mm and 55mm f/1.8 FF autofocus lenses, new MFT autofocus lenses…but what’s a lot more intriguing is that they are working on a new CAMERA too! I would love to know what mount they will sues as I suspect they will not launch new mount.

Sirui announced three new APS-C autofocus lenses for Nikon Z, Fuji X and Sony E mount cameras. All three will be released in November. CineD spoiled more info about these lenses:

Each lens weighs around 400g/0.88lb and has a 58mm front filter thread. The lenses have decent close-focus capabilities. The minimum focus distance of the 23mm is around 30cm, while the 33 and 56mm can focus as close as 40 and 50cm respectively. The Sniper lenses will be available in black or white finishes. The black version includes carbon fiber and metal gray parts, while the white lenses seem to have a glossy ceramic feel – which is quite unusual to see in a lens. Each lens should cost around €350
