DxOMark are busy testing the new Nikon D7500 DX format DSLR right now and although they haven’t posted a full review yet they have posted their first round of performance scores.

Imaging-Resource Test the Sony A9

The guys over at Imaging-Resource have been putting the Sony A9 through it’s paces recently and have now published the results of the second part of their extensive field test. We need to evaluate the Sony A9 in real-world shooting situations to see how it compares to cameras such as the Canon 1DX Mark II and Nikon D5, but the Sony A9 is clearly trying to make its mark in that camera class, both in terms of its feature set and its price tag. It will be very interesting to see how it stacks up, but what we have...

Two Big White Lenses in Time for World Cup and Winter Olympics

Rumor has it that Canon have presented an internal lens roadmap which included two new ‘big white’ lenses to be announced in 2018. The roadmap apparently didn’t include focal length details but it is thought that the lenses could be the EF 600mm f/4 DO lens which Canon have already prototyped and either an updated EF 200mm f/2L IS or EF 800mm f/5.6L IS. Canon usually have something to announce in the run up to major sporting events so we will be looking forward to seeing how this one comes to fruition next year! Via:...

The Visoflex Viewfinder Can BRICK the TL2!

Yesterday we brought you news that the new Leica TL2 was perhaps being withdrawn from sale due to an issue caused by the Visoflex viewfinder. Today we can bring you some more details and it doesn’t look good. An unknown source has provided the following information: “When using the Leica TL2 in combination with the external electronic viewfinder (Visoflex) a possible failure with the camera can occur. If this defect occurs, then it is no longer possible to use the camera.” Obviously this isn’t official but if it is true then it is a major problem for Leica, the...

There are no significant discounts on the two cameras as of yet, the X-T1 is still listed at $1,299 and the X-T10 at $799. Prices should drop soon however as retailers clear through old...

Fuji X-T2S In Development With On-Board Image Stabilization?

There are rumors currently doing the rounds which suggest that the successor to the wildly popular X-T2 will be called the X-T2s and will feature on-board image stabilization. There are two points of note with this one folks. Firstly, does the ‘s’ of X-T2s stand for stabilization? If so is that all this camera is, an X-T2 with IS? Secondly, if the ‘s’ doesn’t stand for stabilization then are we getting an update rather than a next generation? Traditionally ‘s’ cameras feature incremental improvements rather than sweeping generational changes (unless you are Sony of course!). We will have to...
