No folks, the new ZV APS-C camera is NOT a high end camera!

I know other websites are spreading fake rumors about the new ZV camera to be a high end model with incredible performance. I am sorry to disappoint you folks. My job is to not spread clickbait rumor but rumors from solid sources. And they tell me that it doesn’t look like this is going to be a high end model. Don’t get me wrong, it will be a very capable camera but still an entry-mid level APS-C model for vloggers. If you are dreaming about a mini-A1 please read the fake news spread on other websites because I as SAR will tell you this isn’t a mini A1 :(

Here are my thoughts:

These are the rumored four new Tamron FE lenses..among them this stunning 150-400mm f/2.8-5.6 zoom???

CameraBeta reports that those might be the next four new Tamron FE lenses:

  • Tamron 35mm f/3.5 Di III OSD Pancake
  • Tamron 45mm f/1.4 Di III USD
  • Tamron 90mm f/1.8 Di III USD
  • Tamron 150-400mm f/2.8-5.6 Di III VC VXD

I don’t know if the source is reliable. But here are my thoughts on the new lenses:

RUMOR: Sony is rumored to announce three new APS-C E lenses within the next weeks: Two far primes and a zoom!

Guess when Sony announced the last new APS-C E-mount lens? It was the Sony E 16-55mm F2.8 (image on top) back on Aug 28, 2019!

Now, to my surprise one reliable source told me that Sony might announced three(!) new APS-C lenses in May/June. These should be TWO FAST PRIMES and ONE ZOOM !!!

I hope other sources can confirm the rumor because I would hate this to be wrong. It’s about time Sony releases new APS-C lenses and cameras!

POLL: Do you want this Sony A1II with integrated grip? Should resolution be increased?

16 months ago Sony announced the groundbreaking A1. The only real competitor is the excellent Nikon Z9. I guess that Sony will announce a new A1II sometimes in late 2023. Let’s help out Sony and answer the following polls:

Do you want the A1II to feature an integrated grip?

Sigma will soon announce those new FE primes: 50mm f/1.2 and 50mm f/2.0

A reliable source told us that Sigma is going to launch two new FE primes sometimes in Q2 (April-June). The lenses will be:

I don’t have info about the price yet but I guess the Sigma f/1.2 lens will be $500 less expensive than the Sony 50mm GM lens.
