Samsung leaks a 300mm f/2.8 XF-ED lens on youtube

After Sony also Samsung decided to commit a leak suicide :)
The video you can see on top contains the picture of a new 300mm f/2.8 XF-ED lens. Certainly an intentional leak from Samsung and also not the first one (Click here to see the NX camera/lens roadmap” leak”). It’s called viral marketing!

That’s the lens:

 

Nice or not?

A reader noticed that: “the focus ring turns in the opposite direction to other NX lenses“.

Fuji X100 in Stock in US (and new reviews)

UPDATE: Out of Stock now!!!!
You can get the Fuji X100 right now at Amazon US (Click here). In Stock for the normal price $1199!

Systemkameraforum (Click here) posted a new Fuji X100 review. But you have to be a registered forum member to download the pdf file!

Steve Huff (Click here) posted the final X100 review: “The Fujifilm X100 ROCKS and it ROCKS HARD. No, it is NOT perfect but neither is the Leica X1, or NEX-5, or E-P2, or Ricoh. What the X100 has is a combination of looks, size, performance and technology all wrapped up into one classic and sexy well built design. $1200? It’s priced right folks. To be honest, this could be my only camera and I would be happy. It’s light enough to take anywhere, it’s a joy to use, and once you get used to how it operates and exposes, the results are up there with the best of the APS-C cameras.”

The official Fuji website added five new photographer interviews on their website (Click here). (via Noisycamera)

Let’s see…

Two mirrorless concepts

I am sure many of you already saw those nice mirrorless concept videos and images floating around the web. But for those that might missed them here is a short recap. The video on top shows the WVIL camera. It is a concept camera envisioned by Artefact’s award-winning design team. It answers the question: “what’s next for camera design?”. You can read more info at http://www.artefactgroup.com/wvil/.

And there is also that cool Leica i9 concept (See the image on Engadget). It transforms your in a real rangefinder-mirrorless looking camera.
