Samyang launched a new teaser on facebook to "prepare" for the new 100mm macro lens. This one will come for all digital mirrorless systems like Sony E, Samsung, Fuji X and MFT.

    Because this lens is surely apsc designed and wont't compete on the same league as 90mm and because making all those lenses you say is a niche market and maybe is not so interesting business for samyang

    "All mirrorless mounts". Does that include Canon EOS-M, Pentax Q and Nikon 1?

    Since Sony have an FE 90mm macro why doesnt someone make a 50mm macro?
    Or a 17mm tilt/shift for that matter? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I dont think Sony has these even in a mount, and since FE mount is here to stay, it maybe lucrative.

Sony and Panasonic will not launch a new 4K system camera at NAB this year. The only interesting new camera will come from Canon. A fixed lens 4K camera with 1 inch sensor and 24-240mm f/2.8-5.6 lens. Here are two images showing the camera.

    My statement is both technically and practically correct.

    If you compare two cameras with different sensor size and lenses with the same field of view, who would compare _per unit sqare_ crops of the images? It doesn't make sense. It only ma...

    well your statement on the amount of light per sensor is technically correct, but it does not make all that much sense to put it this way. All lenses at the same f/stop will allow through the same amount of light per unit of are of the sensor - th...

    Looks large enough to be comfortably held and operated by an adult human. I'm so tired of cute jewelry cameras designed to be seen but not used.

    Hopefully it wont have that junk Sony BSI sensor.

Enjoy watching :)

    It was amusing and, in a light hearted way, said something about the market. Don't understand people who like to gripe over a bit of fun. And it was quite clever.

    Very funny! Perfect video for starting a day.

That's what I got today. The new Sony A7rII will be announced after the NAB show and have:

- Same 36MP sensor as the A7r
- Improved autofocus system
- Same EVF and LCD
- 5 axis stabilization
- Shutter silent mode (and overall a bit more silent shutter)
- Similar A7II sized body
 

The A9 E-mount PRO camera is due for a later release than expected/hoped....probably coming second half of the year only...

    Bodies are typically not the real money-makers { long term } for camera companies .The A7 series has been very competitively priced the real money is in lenses, so surely the best strategy for Sony is to produce a wider selection of native lenses ...

    I would love the silent shutter but that would be one heck of an achievement if it was to work with 36MP pixels and at higher ISO speeds on a full frame sensor - its just so much information to process in the blink of an eye...(assuming we are ta...

    They would really need to do something to make that 36 MP sensor work better with legacy wide-angle lenses, especially rangefinder-mount wide-angle lenses. Especially when they can be used with stabilization which will make the option even more at...

We have a couple of new mini rumors to share:

Sony:
Sony should announce a new A7rII and a new 50MP A9(?) camera soon.

Fuji:
Fujirumors reports about a Fuji interview. New 2x converter could come and a new sensor has to be designed to make 4K video possible.

Olympus:
The E-M1II could have a new 1/32.000 electronic shutter (Source: 43rumors).

Sigma:
Sigma Rumors reports that a new 24mm f/2.8 ART lens will be released in September.

    Dear ,Ale, the Admin
    as every mirrorlessers should, I appreciate all your efforts and I am grateful to you for informing us at the best, assuming that be honest and impartial has a big cost, especially if you work free.

    Admin, first you slowed down / stopped updating this site on the weekends, now you are regurgitating very old rumors/ news from other sites. Step up your game.

For the first time the new Samsung NX500 is in Stock and shipping at Amazon US (Click here). And there are also plenty of new camera tests to read:

review at Photographyblog.
Preview at ePhotozine.
First impressions at ThePhoBlographer.
Image Gallery at Dpreview.
Shooting with the NX500 at EosHD.

This time the rumors is coming from highly trusted sources. The new Sony A7rII is coming in about 1 month from now. Likely to have the same A7II 5 axis stabilization and same 36MP sensor.

 

More about it soon!

    I dont see the real need for an a7r with only a stabilizer and even an electronic shutter, although both would be good. Since I have sn a7r, the only reason to buy another one would be with a better sensor i.e the 50mp one with stabilization and ...

    Agree to sell my kidney to get this camera.

    It's obvious, then, that you've never actually used this camera. I bet you have never even seen it in person. If you have, you'd know it feels wonderful in the hand. Easily the best feeling compact camera designed yet. To me, it looks just fine as...
