Fujifilm’s X-T2 and X-T20 X mount mirrorless cameras have a new – and more affordable – baby brother in the shape of the compact X-T100. It’s loosely based on the existing X-A5, but is an SLR-style model with an OLED-type electronic viewfinder.
The Lumix FT7 is Panasonic’s latest ruggedised digital compact camera and it’s particularly interesting because it's the first of its type with an electronic viewfinder.
The Leica SL gains a versatile third zoom lens in the Super-Vario-Elmar-SL 16–35/3.5–4.5 ASPH.
It’s a sure sign a camera system is making significant progress when there’s a growing list of independent lens makers introducing models in its mount. Sony’s FE mount – for its full-35mm mirrorless cameras – is already supported by numerous lens brands which will soon be joined by Tamron.
Sony’s latest program of upgrades for its A7 series of full-35mm format mirrorless cameras continues with the introduction of the A7 III which joins the A7R III announced a few months ago.
It’s a sign of the growing importance of Sony’s FE mount full-35mm mirrorless camera system that many of the independent lenses makers are introducing compatible products. And it’s a significant boost for the system that Sigma has announced nine of its much-awarded Art line lenses will be available in the FE mount soon.
Canon’s mirroless camera program is still small compared to those of Fujifilm, Panasonic or Sony, but it’s gathering momentum and the company describes the new EOS M50 as its “most intuitive and advanced" model yet.
Genuinely new developments in photography are becoming few and far between, but Canon has definitely come up with significant one in its Speedlite 470EX-AI accessory flash unit… which has automatic bounce flash control.
South Korean lens maker Samyang has added a third lens to its XP line of high-performance primes for Canon EF mount full-35mm format D-SLRs. The new XP 50mm f1.2 joins the existing XP 14mm f2.4 and XP 85mm f1.2 models.
For anybody who wants the traditional 70-210mm telezoom in a smaller, lighter and more affordable package, Tamron has just added an f4.0-speed version to its line-up of Di series lenses for full-35mm D-SLRs.
