Last week, Fuji Rumors received word from trusted sources pointing to FujiFilm’s plans to release an “entry level” mirrorless interchangeable lens camera baring the X-Series brand, set to be announced later this summer.
Trusted sources close to the reliable folks at Fuji Rumors have released some exciting (if true) information regarding Fuji’s foreseeable X-series plans. According to the report, an “entry level” mirrorless interchangeable lens camera baring the X-series name will be released sometime this summer, at a price point similar to that of the X10.
Unsurprisingly, as it’s now becoming a yearly occurrence, another Olympus camera has been leaked ahead of it’s official unveiling. This time, it’s the long-rumored E-P3′s successor, shown above and below – a MILC which seems to have taken many design traits from it’s older Olympus brothers – namely the PEN-F.
If you are at all familiar with the talented and successful editorial, commercial and street photographer Zack Arias, you know he isn’t one to mince words nor shy away from making incendiary claims, and after spending some quality time with Fuji’s new X100S in the streets of Istanbul, Arias’ resulting confidence has paved the way for yet another bold, bold statement; “The DSLR is dead.”
Last year, Zeiss officially announced the development of a trio of mirrorless camera lenses specifically designed for the Fuji X and Sony NEX system, hinting at the eventual release of a Planar 12mm f/2.8, Distagon 32mm f/1.8 and Planar 50mm f/2.8 macro.
It’s no secret that Fujifilm intended to rectify many of the issues that plagued the original X100, and ever since the announcement of the X100S, critics have universally acclaimed the camera maker for making good on their lofty goals for the retro-inspired shooter’s update.
Those interested in the pint-sized APS-C shooter can pick it up in either black, or the white version shown above with the 16-50mm Power Zoom kit lens, for $498.00 – a very competitive price-point considering how well the 3N compares to current MILC’s on the market.
Samsung Germany prematurely posted information and details regarding to yet-to-be-announced and long-rumored NX1100 to their official website, leaking the first credible look at the MILC, as well as publishing it’s official user manual online – a download prompt which has since been removed.
According to the trust-worthy reports from Sony Alpha Rumors, created from word for numerous known sources, Sony is prepped and ready to unveil the successor to the acclaimed NEX-7 in April and further develop upon an already class-leading mirrorless camera.
