Rumors

Samyang Lens Teaser

Samyang is teasing a new lens announcement for March 21. All we have so far is this teaser image, which was shared on the company’s Facebook page yesterday. Previous hints and rumors suggest that Samyang is about to launch a new line of autofocus lenses. Perhaps this will be the first…

Samyang’s current line of photo and cine lenses are well regarded for the optical performance and low price. Offering AF versions of these popular lenses should be a real boon to the company and customers alike.

Sigma-24-70-f2-DG-OS-HSM

Remember when the rumors of the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 lens started to churn? There was a lot of disbelief.

Then, the lens launched and people wanted a full frame version of the lens… Well, it looks like Sigma may be answering those cries with a 24-70mm f/2 (again, I say “F/2″) lens. [click to continue…]

Canon TS-E 45mm

Following up a previous rumor, there is more noise of a pair of new tilt-shift Canon lenses due in early 2014. The  current TS-E 45mm f/2.8 and TS-E 90mm F/2.8 are well-overdue replacement and should find similar updates as seen in the recent  Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L and TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II lenses. We could see an announcement later in 2013, but rumors suggest that they won’t be available until 2014. [click to continue…]

Hasselblad DSLR

If the Hasselblad Lunar wasn’t the right fit for you, then maybe a new Hasselblad DSLR using the Sony Alpha A-mount will hit the mark…

Yes, I’m being a little facetious; however, I’m serious about the Hasseblad DSLR that appears to be coming later this year. [click to continue…]

Leica Mini M Rumors vs Truth

When Leica first teased the Mini M, I was ready to bet big on an APS-C mirrorless camera that accepts M-mount lenses. Then came the supposed leak that everyone pretty much took as gospel. It sure looked legit anyway.

The latest tease on the Leica website, however, casts doubt on the previous “leak” of the Mini M, which purportedly revealed its specs with a fixed lens in the 18-46mm range and a rather slow variable aperture of f/3.5-6.4. All in all, it was underwhelming and left many of us scratching our heads. [click to continue…]
