The ever-busy Tamron has announced another new lens for Canon and Nikon full-35mm D-SLRs. It’s an ultra-wide zoom in the shape of a 17-35mm f2.8-4.0 Di OSD which is due to launch first in the Nikon mount with a Canon EF version following later.
Nikon has released a second ‘teaser’ video which reveals a little more, visually at least, of its forthcoming all-new full-35mm format mirrorless camera system.
The details are still very sketchy, but Nikon has finally confirmed it is developing an all-new mirrorless camera system based on a full-35mm format sensor. As expected, the system will be based on a new lens mount.
It’s a sign things are going well when a camera maker announces big expansion plans for its lens production facility. Fujifilm says that continued growing demand for its X and G mount mirrorless cameras necessitates an increase in lens production.
The much anticipated FE mount 400mm f2.8 fast supertelephoto has now been announced by Sony and, not surprisingly, it's a high-performance G Master (GM) model with a number of interesting new features.
To celebrate the completion of its ambitious Leitz Park complex in Germany (see separate news item), Leica has introduced a limited edition version of its M10 digital rangefinder camera styled by Zagato.
Announced a couple of months ago, Tamron’s first lens for Sony’s FE mirrorless system mount is now available in Australia. The 28-75mm f2.8 model employs a new autofocusing drive called ‘RXD’ which stands for Rapid eXtra-Silent Stepping Drive.
Hasselblad has introduced its widest-angle prime lens ever, a 21mm f4.0 XCD mount model for its digital medium format mirrorless camera system.
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.
