WTF? Leica, Sigma and Panasonic will work together to develop the Full Frame SL mount camera system

And so all cards are on the table now: ON September 25 Leica, Sigma and Panasonic will announce a new profound partnership. Together they will develop cameras and lenses based on the Leica SL mount.

Expect them to announce cameras and lenses that will likely out-wow what Canon and Nikon announced weeks ago. But will that be enough to get a meaningful market share in the FF mirrorless world? You tell me in the comment system…


These are the leaked images of the FIVE new Sigma lenses!

Sigma 56mm f/1.4 DC APS-C E-mount lens

Sigma is going to make everyone happy by announcing a new set of lenses. The image on tops shows the Sigma 56mm f/1.4 which will be available for MFT and Sony E-mount users. Below you can find their new Full Frame lenses which I suspect will be made available for Sony FE too:

Sigma 28mm f/1.4


Sigma 40mm f/1.4


Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8



Sigma 60-600mm 4.5-6.3

This is the 100% accurate sketch of the new GFX-50R

Fujirumors shared these 100% accurate sketches of the new GFX-50R. Rumored specs beside the alreayd known 50 Megapixel sensor:

priced around $4,500
dual SD-card slot
no more cooling box
EVF only
2 axis tilt screen
first real life leaked image

This could be the first Medium Format for the masses! I know, $4,500 is still a lot of money, but only a couple of years ago you had to pay $10,000+ for these kind of cameras. And maybe next year the GFX-50R will get some discount and get closer to the $4,000 price…

Sony will announce the new 24mm f/1.4 lens this week. Probably no new camera :(

Well, seems like Sony will hide their cards for a while longer. Sony will announce two new lenses on September 20…and that’s it. The new high End APS-C camera and the new A7sIII might be announced in one of the two next events taking place on September 25 and in mid October.

Still, some of you will be happy to know that Sony will fill the latest few gaps in their FF E-mount lens lineup by announcing the 24mm f/1.4 GM on Sept 20.

Sony-Canon-Nikon step aside…the Big guys are coming: Fuji to announce the GFX-50r and GFX-100s at Photokina!

On the Internet you keep reading Full Frame lovers beating hard on the smaller size APS-C and MFT cameras. Well now we can pay them back and hit them where it hurts most…sensor size! That small FF sensor never had a real future :)

Fuji is not only going to announce the cheapest medium format ever…the GFX-50R for $4,500. But they will also announce the development of the new GFX-100s. The latter camera will be use the new BSI Sony sensor that has much better autofocus performance and dynamic range. This should be a killer camera. I just hope it will not be too expensive!

Both new medium format cameras will be announced on September 25 according to Fujirumors.

The new Panasonic FF will have a Panasonic designed High Resolution sensor

Little is known about the new Panasonic FF system. All 43rumors has learned yet from trusted sources is that it will be announced on September 25 and be available in March 2019. But the most important is this:

The Panasonic FF will have a Panasonic designed sensor with way more than the previously rumored 30 Megapixels. I guess we can expect something close to 50 Megapixels.

I am sure Panasonic will not cripple this camera in any way. I expect it to have dual slot, fully articulatied screen, 4K with no crop and so forth…
