Digicameinfo corrected yesterday's rumor and the name of the new Pentax will be Q-S1 and not Q2. And he also posted some more images of the camera!

Yep! You can buy a new MFT camera (although it's not a new generation model) for $99 only at Adorama (Click here).

A couple of years ago you would not have believe you can grab a compact system camera for just $99!!!

These are the first images of the new Pentax Q2 leaked by Digicameinfo. There are no specs yet but I am sure the camera will be announced within the next few days already!

    In the size of the k01 they should have put an evf, at least. The IQ was very good, but that was not enough.

    These CSC sold at above 500$ should all have an evf of some sort.

    very good looking - the Q1 has a surprisingly good IQ - but suffers due to size of sensor - like the Fuji x30 I think they could have a larger sensor - but that would mean new lenses and I expect they will not introduce a new larger sensor and ne...

This is really a wild rumor but I got it via some trusted source. He says that he "heard" about a new Nikon camera system that could be launched at Photokina. And the first camera will feature the current Sony 50MP medium format sensor used by all newest generation Hasselblad, Phase one and Pentax MF cameras!

    I doubt this rumor is true. The MF digital market is miniscule, Nikon already has to design and market three lens types already, and stitching full-frame images gives you MF digital quality anyway. The market of people who would want another MF di...

    This seem highly unlikely.

    Could Nikon decide to build a new lens mount and some lenses for it? Sure, but a mirrorless one able to cope with APS-C and FF sensors would be much, much, much higher on their agenda then a medium format camera .....

    Nikon already have a slew of LF lenses for 4x5 and larger. Many of them sell for chips. If the camera was modular (I hope), the back could be detached and used on a 4x5 camera or even something like the Novoflex BALPRO T/s with any lens.

Latest rumors coming via Fujirumors suggest the new X30 will keep the same sensor size as the current X20. Fuji is not going to increase the sensor size like Sony and Panasonic did. But the likely most disappointing news is that the X30 will get rid of the Optical Viewfinder and get a "simple" electronic viewfinder instead.

All that doesn't really sound exciting to me. The Optical Viewfinder was a big feature that made stand out the X20. Don't think the Fuji X30 can become a real challenger of the Sony RX series and the future 1 inch Panasonic LX8.

    I agree - very disappointing - I think the X-30 will be the end of that camera given its sensor and features -
    I have the X-20 and I like it - now Sony with the RX100/m2/m3 have improved it allot - new ExmorR sensor etc and still about the sa...

    I have to agree with Dante. Maybe we'll see some other great upgrades that we don't know about, yet, but as far as I see, the new X30 has a bitter flavor of disappointment.

    Disappointing. The rx100 iii is getting raves, and this new Fuji is going to probably be no better than the existing rx100 ii (($649)

The Fuji X-M1 with kit lens now sells for $399 only via Newegg eBay (Click here). It's $200 less than the other US store price ($599 here at Amazon). Never you had the chance to spend that less to get a porper X mount camera!

Samyang will announce a newly designed APS-C lens for "some" mirrorless system. I heard it's certainly coming for Micro Four Thirds. But I guess Samyang will launch E and X mount versions too.

I have been told the lens has a high optical quality but still the famous Samyang low pricing :)

Sounds great!!!

    If it were a 50mm f1.2 at the price, say, of the samyang 85mm f1.4, I'd probably buy it. But f1.5 is not outstanding at all. Not even 1.4, since you can buy a lot of great legacy lenses at 50-100€.
