New Sigma 300mm f/2.8 OS and 400mm f/2.8 OS A-mount lenses coming? New Tamron lens next week.

Sigma loves to make huge fast tele lenses like the 500mm f/4.5 EX DG APO Autofocus Lens for Sony/Minolta A Mount (here at BHphoto). And it looks like there could be two more such lenses in 2014. According got Canonrumors Sigma will launch a new Sigma 300mm f/2.8 OS and 400mm f/2.8 OS tele prime lens in 2014. A new 500mm and 800mm zoom lens could also be announced although CR says it’s not sure about it. Yep, finally some new great tele to take sports pictures or spy your neighborhood ;)

P.S.: And a new tele lens from Tamron will be announced next week (via Photorumors).

The super compact E-mount Full Frame camera patent!

Egami spotted a new Sony patent describing a sort of Full Frame NEX-5 alike camera body. This would become an insane small body! Yes, it’s possible to make such a camera but does it make sense if the FF lenses are so big? I doubt it Sony will launch a camera like that.

But on the other site one very trusted source already told me that there will be a couple of new FF E-mount bodies in 2014. So let’s see! I would prefer to get a NEX-7 alike FF camera first….

This is the NEX-5 vs A7r size comparison via Camerasize:

Debunking rumors: Fuji will NOT use the Sony A7 sensors (nor will Nikon).

DSRLmagazine posted a tweet where they claim that Fuji’s new fixed lens Full Frame camera will use the A7 sensor. it’s my duty to let you know that Fuji will most definitely NOT use a Sony sensor for their upcoming FF camera. And as far as I know not even Nikon will use the A7-A7r sensors.

What’s true is that Fuji will launch an RX1-RX1R competitor in Spring. That I can confirm via my sources. They also know some stuff about the competition ;) But I expect Sony to launch an RX2 in Spring 2014 too so this will be a nice battle between the two!

The real surprise is that Nikon and Canon still have no serious plan to challenge Sony’s A7 and RX cameras.
