Alongside its new 28-300mm lens, Tamron has also announced the 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DI II VC PZD MACRO lens designs for APS-C cameras. The lens follows the popular 18-270mm model, stretching the focal length at both ends of the zoom range for a 18.8x total zoom range. [Read more…]
The latest rumors suggest that the next Canon DSLR coming to us will be an entry-level model situated below the Canon Rebel SL1 and will be showcased at CP+ next month.
Recall that the Rebel SL1 was announced in March 2013 and turned out to be a fantastic little camera. I liked it so much that I bought one for myself. It is a great camera to carry when paired with the EF 40mm f/2.8 ST lens.
I look forward to seeing if Canon will continue this new compact line, or if this will be more like an update to the very low-end Rebel T3.
A tipster points to CP+ in February as the release timeframe for the rumored Fuji X-T1. Additionally, the X-Pro2 (successor to the popular X-Pro1) is being saved for Photokina in September according to our tipster.
The Photokina release for the X-Pro2 seems quite a stretch to me, since it was rumored to be pushed back from CES earlier this month. Of course, we’ll know soon enough if it doesn’t show up in February at CP+.
If you have additional tips to offer on the Fuji X-T1 or X-Pro2, please pass that along to us via the contact form.
Olympus is expected to unveil the OM-D E-M10 and several new lenses soon. The E-M10 had been previously leaked out by the Indonesian government listing above. The E-M10 is rumored to feature the same 16MP sensor as found in the E-M5 and the same processor as the E-M1. Additionally, it is expected to come with a new and very compact 14-42mm kit lens, which has already leaked out and is pictured below. [Read more…]
The Canon G1 X was a bit of an odd bird when announced a couple years back at CES 2013 with its larger sensor (still not quite APS-C sized) and slow lens at f/5.8 max aperture on the telephoto end. Still, it looks like the camera was successful enough that Canon may announce a new model at CP+ next month.
Rumored specs for the Canon G1 X Mark II include the following: [Read more…]
New leaks point to a new Olympus XZ-10 compact camera and 75-300mm Micro Four Thirds lens coming next week during the CP+ show in Japan.
The XZ-10 is rumored to be a high-end compact camera that will likely serve as a replacement or companion model to the Olympus XZ-2.
The new lens will be the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II Micro Four Thirds lens that will be a 150-600mm equivalent zoom lens. The first version of this lens is already listed as discontinued.

Nikon is rumored to be dropping a new full frame lens at the end of January at the CP+ show in Japan. The new Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-f.5G ED lens should be compatible with both FX and DX cameras and will weigh in as the lightest FX zoom in Nikon’s lineup at a mere 400g (or 14 ounces).
Other specs on the rumored lens include a 77mm filter thread with 12 elements in 8 groups. The lens should serve as a proper replacement for the existing 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D ED lens.

Sony has taken every opportunity over the past year or so to tease an A700 replacement. Such is the case again this week at CP+ in Japan.
In this case, however, Sony managed to give an idea of when it would be available. The yet un-named model that will replace the A700’s position in the Sony Alpha lineup will be available “mid-2011” according to the official word from Sony at CP+.
In addition to the new A700 successor, Sony is developing a new standard kit lens and a new hot shoe flash to pair with the prosumer camera. As we have already learned, the Sony prosumer model will feature Sony’s Translucent Mirror Technology (as found in the A55 and A33). The prosumer model, rumored to be called the A77, will also capture AVCHD in full 1920 x 1080 resolution. The camera will also feature an APS-C format sensor.
