There are two L-mount announcements coming soon: Leica SL2 and Panasonic 70-200mm f/2.8 and 16-35mm f/4.0 L lenses!

While other manufacturers will have a short announcement pause til January-February the L-mount consortium is still busy announcing new products:

1) Next week Leica will announce the new 47MP SL2 camera
2) Within  2 weeks Panasonic will also launch the  new 70-200mm f/2.8 and 16-35mm f/4.0 L lenses

As you can see…all those three new toys aren’t going to be cheap  :)

Canon Q3 operating profit in the imaging business drops 56,8% compared to last year!

Canon published the Q3 financial results and damn they are bleeding out :(

Compared to  Q3 2018  their net profit dropped by 56,8%! Sales dropped  by  13,9%. They now changed the  2019  sales forecast and expect full  year profit to drop by 59,9%. Honestly I didn’t  expect  that and it looks like Canon and Olympus are doing worse than other camera companies now…
