Just like with new smartphones, newer models of full frame DSLRs don't have the same impact as back in the day, the days of the Nikon D700. But the technology improves, the features pile on and get modernized and the spice must flow! Nikon revealed the new D750 35mm full frame DSLR, available for pre-order for $2300 in D750 body only and $3600 with 24-120mm. It is expected to be released later on this month, so hide your wallets! (September 2014)
Canon also revealed some new lenses at Photokina 2014 as follows:
+ Canon EF 400mm f4 DO IS II USM for $6900 with a late November estimate
+ Canon EF 24-105mm f3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens for $600 with a late December estimate
+ Canon EF-S 24mm f2.8 STM for $150 with a late November estimate. Maple Syrup not included!
Zoom zoom! When are we going to see the first 100x optical zoom digital camera? We are 2/3rds of the way there. Canon revealed the new Powershot SX60 HS with a crazy 65x optical zoom lens (21-1365mm eq) and RAW and Wifi and NFC and a preorder price of $550. Release estimate is late October 2014.
Meanwhile, Canon's N-square (not N to the square) experiment continues with a second generation model, the Powershot N2 P&S is available for preorder for $300 in two color schemes and with an unspecified at the moment release estimate.
The Panasonic LX100 is not the only rawsumer to make a guest appearance at Photokina Monday. Canon is "recycling" the G-series naming scheme by appending an X (for larger sensors) to them. And now, for $700, here comes the new Canon Powershot G7X with a 1" CMOS sensor, DiGiC 6, 24-100mm eq. f1.8-2.8, Wifi and NFC and things like that. Release estimate is late October 2014.
Another unicorn has arrived! A fixed-lens Micro Four Thirds camera under four figures. Panasonic revealed at Photokina Monday the new Panasonic LX100 with a M43rds sensor and 24-75mm f1.7-2.8 Leica DC lens. Larger sensor, bright lens = $900 starting price.
It's Photokina Press Release Monday, and it's raining new cameras left and right. After toying around with the product numbering scheme, Ms Galaxy finally decided they had a camera that was worthy of the "1" name. They revealed the new NX1 APS-C camera with a backlit CMOS sensor and up to 15fps at full resolution. It is available for pre-order for $1500 as the NX1 body and $2800 with the 16-50mm f2-2.8 S lens. Release estimate is mid-October.
Fuji revealed two new lenses and they are available for pre-order as follows. The new 56mm f1.2 APD (Apodization) prime is available for pre-order for $1500 at Adorama and Amazon with an October-November release estimate. A similar release estimate for the new 50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR XF lens with a preorder price of $1600 at Adorama and Amazon.
Fuji revealed a new Big Sensor Prime in the runup to Photokina 2014, the new X100T with a starting price of $1300 and a late November release estimate. It is available for pre-order in either black X100T or silver X100T for $1300. Interestingly, there is a preorder limit of two per color. Perhaps that's one way to combat the initial release crunch?
Estimated to ship around September 16 (2014), the Zeiss Otus 85mm f1.4 Apo Planar T* SLR lens is available for pre-order for $4500 in the Canon and Nikon SLR mounts at B&H Photo. Free expedited shipping.
Sony had a loaded IFA 2014 presentation today, launching new products left and right, trying to recapture old glory. Of photography interest, the new QX1 is a 20mp APS-C sensor-module with RAW capture that attaches to your smartphone and takes Sony Alpha lenses. It is officially compatible with 50+ lenses and it is available for pre-order for $400 at Amazon with a mid-October release estimate.
Joining the smartphone add-on modules is the new QX30, which *spoiler alert* as its name hints, has a 30x optical zoom. Yes, a 30x optical zoom glued to your smartphone. After all, none of the major smartphones have ventured into optical zoom lenses. With emphasis on slim designs, the chances of native optical zoom lenses are not that high. The new QX30 is available for pre-order for $350 at Amazon with an early October release estimate.
Last but not least, they have a new Action Cam Mini, splashproof, and as the Mini indicates in the name, the smallest so far in the Sony line-up. This actionable wearable is available for pre-order for $250 at Amazon or for $350 in a Live View Remote Bundle. Release estimate is mid-to-late October 2014.
Today was announcement day at the annual big IFA 2014 tech trade show in Berlin. Panasonic revealed the new 4K camcorder, the HC-X1000, and it is available for pre-order for $3500 at Amazon with a late October release estimate.
With IFA 2014 just around the corner, the new cameras are rolling out. On the K-mount front, Pentax has revealed the new K-S1 DSLR available in multiple color schemes and multiple kits. The body only will start at $750, the K-S1 with 18-55mm for $800 and the two lens kit (18-55, 50-200) for $900. Preorders are available at Adorama and B&H Photo.
