Nikon to launch a professional mirrorless system in March?

For months we were hearing tons of rumors about Nikon developing a mirrorless system with small sensors (smaller than Micro Four Thirds). But according to the latest rumor from DSLRmagazine this is not true. They had a talk with a “trusted source” which claims to know that Nikon is ready to launch the most professional mirrorless system on market today (NX, NEX and M43). The first camera and lenses should be announced in March 2011!

Now that’s a news. usually DSRLmagazine is well informed about what’s coming next!

The Samsung NX11 is here, the Olympus E-PL2 is coming and Nikon mirrorless patents maybe…

Finally trhere is a bunch of new mirrorless cameras we can talk about! Samsung just announced the new NX11 which is basically a NX10 with iFunction and new handgrip (More at X-rumors). Than there is the new Olympus E-PL2 which should be announced early January. Also in that case the difference between the older E-Pl1 and E-Pl2 are almost negligible. New updated kit-lens, new ISO 6.200 feature and a new design which is the only major change (More at 43rumors).

Meanwhile for the X time there are new Nikon mirrorless patents floating around the web. At least there is a new interesting concept. A mirrorless camera with interchangeable sensor! (More at Egami).

Nothing really worldshaking for now but I guess the next bunch of REAL new cameras will be announced soon (February?).

Steve Huff: The Ricoh GXR Review (with the 28mm and 50mm Modules)

Steve Huff is one of the very few “professional reviewers” that tested the Ricoh GXR: “So all in all, the Ricoh seems like a misunderstood camera. Those who own one LOVE it. Those who don’t dismiss it because it is different. Me, I like it and I am having a blast shooting with it. The camera really is for  those who put quality photos first. For $1000 or so the body and 28mm would make a great starter set. Adding the 50 makes it much more versatile.
