Pre-Order new Fuji XF 18-120 and 150-600 lenses

In addition to the just announced X2Hs camera, Fuji has also revealed a couple of mainline/mainstream X-system XF lenses, and they are designed to make your wallet cry capture great photos 😉

+ XF 18-120mm f4 R LM PZ WR for $899 at ADorama and B&H Photo
+ shipping estimate is mid-September 2022

+ XF 150-600mm f5.6-8 R LM OIS WR for $1999 at B&H Photo and Adorama
+ shipping estimate is early July 2022
+ here’s a 4-minute overview by B&H:

Pre-order the new Fuji X-H2s for $2500

A very memorable memorial day for Fuji fans (it’s a self-writing pun!), as Fuji has officially announced their brand new X-H2s flagship camera with a 26mp stacked BSI X-Trans APS-C sensor, up to 7-stops of in-body stabilization, 6.2K/30P 3:2 aspect ratio, AI auto-focus, both SDXC UHS-II and CFexpress Type B, 15fps mechanical shutter (40fps electronic), both OLED EVF and vari-angle 3″ touchscreen (plus monochrome sky-facing LCD for settings), USB-C 3.2 Gen 2, full size HDMI, PC sync, uses the NP-W235 battery, etc, etc, etc…

The camera is available for pre-ordering for $2500 as a body only. It also has three “with lens” kits that bundle it with Fuji’s two T2.9 video-priority pro zooms. The third kit is with both T2.9 zooms. The prices are (of course) high (if you have to ask…).

Pre-orders are accepted at B&H Photo and at Adorama and such…Shipping estimate is early July 2022…

Here’s a 12-minute video overview of the camera by Jake Estes of House B&H:

Along with it are three H2S-dedicated accessories, a $199 camera cooling fan, and $399 VG-HX battery grip, estimated to ship along with the camera in early July 2022. There’s also a $999 file transmitter grip estimated to come out in mid-September (along with the new XF lenses)…

BUT that’s not all! Wooden Camera is also releasing a handful of H2S dedicated accessories (camera cages, etc). But they are also sneaking in a couple of general use adapters, PL lenses to either X-system bodies or GFX bodies…

PS: since the X-H2S uses the existing NP-W235 li-ion battery, if you want to save, for $30 you can get the B&H Photo Watson Li-Ion

Pre-ORDER new CANON APS-C R7 and R10 cameras

Managing 2+2 parallel camera systems must not be a fun adventure at the Canon and Nikon headquarters, but reality and the realpolitik of photography demand so. Okay, enough nonsense 🙂

Canon has revealed today two new APS-C mirrorless cameras in the R/RF system, along with two new R/RF APS-C lenses that will be offered in official kits with these two cameras. The same DSLR APS-C playbook repeating itself? 🙂

VROOOM PROMISES the CANON R7
The Canon R7, faster than the speed of life per Canon, promises 15fps using mechanical shutter, 32mp, in-body image stabilization with up to seven stops, dual UHS-II SD slots, Dual Pixel CMOS AF II, DiGiC X, EVF and vari-angle touchscreen, USB-C and such…

Sounds good but can it beat the legendary Olympus E-100 RS? I don’t think so 🙂

It is available in two standard kits, body only for $1500, or with the newly announced RF-S 18-150mm f3.5-6.3 IS STM lens for $1900. Pre-orders are accepted at B&H Photo and Adorama and such…

Here’s a couple of 3-minute “trailers” for the camera by Canon herself:

CANON R10 goes for the $1K PRICE POINT
For those wanting to stay close to the psychological $1K price-point Canon has revealed the R10 APS-C mirrornyet camera. It will be available as body only for $980, with the new RF-S 18-45mm f4.5-6.3 IS STM kit lens for $1100, or with the new RF-S 18-150mm f3.5-6.3 IS STM lens for $1380.

The R10 has a 24mp APS-C sensor, and shares some but not all (single UHS-II card, only version 2.0 USB-C, etc, etc, etc) of the R7 features. It’s a $500 price difference after all 🙂 The detailed comparison is your homework assignment for the week!

Pre-orders are accepted at B&H Photo and also at Adorama

The R10 has gotten just one 3-minute “trailer” from Canon instead of the two of the R7 😉

DISAMBIGUATION POINT
This may potentially cause some confusion to those new to the Canon RF world. There is an existing previously released Canon BG-R10 Battery Grip that is designed for the R5 and R6 mirrorless cameras.

Life would be just way too easy if the camera name matched the battery grip name 🙂

Sachtler and Zhiyun Weebill 2 (four options)

Stabilizer-y things are also the theme of the day at the latest iteration of the Adorama daily deals which run until Wednesday at 10am ET:

Nikon Z Month at Adorama (with FREE Accessories)

If you’ve made the big decision to try out the Nikon Z system, it is Z Day, okay Z Month, at Adorama where they have many Nikon Z bundles, a number of which include the customary “FREE Accessories” bundles with all kinds of accessorapalooza offerings.

The link above is sorted by newest product first, which is why it starts with the Nikon Z Football Club (aka “Z fc”).

There are eight pages of offerings, and it includes DSLR gear as well. After all, Nikon does not have _that_ many Z system products and I’m guessing they did not want to offend the DSLR users. Yes, the customer politics of having multiple DSLR and mirrorless systems running in parallel in perfect harmony 🙂
