Japanese sales in May: Fujifilm X100VI and Sony A7III are the kings


Here is the new May sales ranking from Mapcamera. Sony is doing really well. It seems like it doesn’t need to launch new models to keep up at least in Japan. A new Sony RX competitor to the Fujifilm X100VI would be needed. But my “feeling” here is that Sony know that weel…so fingers crossed!

Interview with Sigma CEO Yamaki…and will there be a 85-150mm f/1.8?


CineD had a chat with Sigma CEO Yamaki. The only curiosity I had not thought of is whether Sigma will also someday make a full-frame version of the current APS-C 50-100 mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art zoom. This would be a 77-150 mm lens. I imagine this lens would become more like an 85-150mm f/1.8 so as not to make it too big. What do you think about such a possible proposal?

Do you think a Sigma 85-150mm f/1.8 would be something interesting for you?
