Fujifilm revolutionized the world of medium format a few years ago by introducing a line of cameras and lenses that offered all the benefits of the larger sensor size at prices that significantly undercut traditional medium format prices and even competed with upper-level full frame prices. The company is showing no sign of stopping, with more cameras and lenses to come next week, along with new X Series gear as well.
A few years ago, Fujifilm sent shockwaves through the industry by releasing a medium format mirrorless camera with modern features and capabilities that was priced tens of thousands of dollars below other medium format offerings, followed by two more models that pushed the boundaries of price and capabilities all the more. And now, the company seems set to do it again.
Canon's EOS R5 and R6 cameras have been very popular and well received, while the EOS RP and EOS R help to round out the lower ens of the company's mirrorless lineup. However, besides the upcoming flagship model, one notable absence is an APS-C model, but it now seems likely we will see such a camera next year.
No doubt, the huge influx of quality third-party lenses from companies like Tamron and Sigma in the last few years has been a huge boon to photographers, as we have been given quite affordable alternatives that still offer professional performance and results. Now that Canon and Nikon have moved to the world of mirrorless, many are eagerly waiting for Tamron and Sigma to start making lenses for the RF and Z mounts, and the good news is that Sigma will likely start doing that next year.
Nikon dropped the price of its legendary D850 by almost 15 percent last week, and retailers have rapidly run out of stock as a result. Given the demand for a DSLR that’s more than three years old, is the idea of a D850 successor looking like a smart move for the Japanese manufacturer?
Ever since Canon announced that it would develop a new line of mirrorless cameras there have been questions as to whether there would be an APS-C version. The rumor mills are now certain that a crop sensor RF mount camera will be coming in late 2021, and it could be a beast.
