(SR5) First leaked image of the new Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD FF E-mount lens for Sony!

Our source was spot on and indeed this is the first image of the new Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III RXD Full Frame E-mount lens for Sony! It should be announced on February 22.

This is the first non-Sony FE zoom lens. Tamron was also the first third party lens maker launching an 18-200mm APS-C E-mount zoom (here on Amazon US, Amazon DE).

First image samples shot with the new Sony 400mm f/2.8 OSS GM FE lens!

Yesterday a reader sent us new images of the Sony 400mm f/2.8 OSS GM FE lens that is being tested at the Olympics. Today our reader Max spotted the first images shot with this lens by Sony photographer Bob Martin! They are all posted on his Instagram channel: instagram.com/bubblesontour/.

This one for example is clearly taken with the 400mm lens:

And this one has been taken with the 400mm lens and the 2x converter (800mm in total):

Reminder: This lens will hit the market in September according to BHphoto. And it will surely cost $10,000+ just like the Canon 400mm lens :(

Two non-Sony lens leaks: Tamron 70-210mm and Samyang 50mm f/1.2

Two lens images got leaked the past 24 hours:

1) Image on top: Tamron 70-210mm f/4.0 for Canon and Nikon. I really don’t think they will make an A-mount version of this. This lens and the 28-75mm f/2.8 FE lens could be announced on February 22.

2) Image below: Samyang 50mm f/1.2. It’s yet unconfirmed if this is the lens we rumored days ago.

UPDATE: The Tamron lens will be announced on Feb 22:

Fuji announces the first video oriented X-H1 camera

X-H1 vs A6500 by camerasize

Today Fuji announced the new X-H1 (specs at BH). As usual with Fuji this looks like a well-rounded product which also comes with some special and newly announced Cine lenses. When compared with the A6500 the X-H1 is a more advanced video tool. But I think Sony hasn’t too much to be worried about. The Sony A7sIII is highly likely to be announced in early April and I bet it has 4k60p while the Fuji has 4k30p only.

What Sony should learn from todays’ Fuji announcement is that you really have to think about the full ecosystem: Translated…make proper lenses for the camera you make!
