Nikon Focusing on High-End Primes for their Z-mount first, good strategy?

08/14/2018
Categories:
Nikon's Z-Mount Cameras are being announced on the 23rd of August along with 3 lenses. One of them will be the standard 24-70mm f/4 kit lens but the other two are fast primes. Nikon has also planned an f/.9 52mm lens for their new mount. I personally think its a better strategy to focus on commonly used zooms such as 24-20, 18-35, 70-200, and 70-300 rather than these ultra-fast prime lenses because more people use the common zooms and they should be the core of most photographer's kits. Focusing on consumer and pro-sumer lenses helps you grab the market for common people, which is most of the market if you looks at units of Cameras sold.

Nikon Mirrorless Back Button Layout

Nikon Rumors have just published a picture of what the back button layout of Nikon's new Mirrorless Camera will look like. I have to say, I'm a little disappointed that they moved the column of buttons on the left to other spaces because I found those button positions to be extremely easy to use.

Canon Mirrorless Camera Rumors

08/12/2018

Sony has two great mirror-less full-frame Cameras out. Nikon is going to announce two on August 23rd, but what Canon is doing is still a mystery. There are professionals out in the field testing the Canon Cameras but there have been no leaks yet. There are rumored to be two models coming out, a flagship model which will compete with the Sony A7RIII and a lower mode, designed to compete with the Sony A7III. It is rumored that the flagship model will had the same resolution as the 5D Mark IV, which would be a mistake since both Nikon's mirrorless flag and the A7RIII are going to have close to 50% more megapixels, putting Canon on the backfoot. The new Canon Mirrorless Flagship should have 40+mp to compete. Second is what mount Canon should go with. Here they have three options. Stick with the EF mount that all their DSLR cameras use, go with the already existing M mount, or design a whole new mount. If it were me, I'd stick with the EF mount because its still very good today and is big enough for Canon to build fast Lenses and features into. Unlike the Nikon F-Mount which has not been changed from the 1950s, the EF Mount was introduced in the 1980s and so does not have some of the problems the F-Mount does. If they go with the M-mount or build a new mount, they will be lagging behind Sony in the Native glass department by several years.

Tamron to release 17-35mm, $600 Wide-angel Lens for Canon and Nikon

Tamron announced it was making a 17-35mm lens for Canon and Nikon with the sticker price of $600. The Nikon version will be released in September while the Canon version will follow later. There are no known plans yet for a Sony version. While Tamron offer excellent quality with a much lower sticker price than Nikon or Canon lenses, there is the worry of how it will work with the new adapters to the mirrorless mounts that Canon and Nikon are soon coming out with.

Nikon Mirrorless Camera Teaser Video

Nikon recently released a teaser video about the new upcoming mirrorless camera Here. it doesn't really show much, but at the end, you do get to see that the Camera mount is big(meaning its going to use an adapter for current F-mount lenses), the ergonomics look good with a substantial grip and the LCD and EVF are big. All good things, but we cannot be that sure because it doesn't show us much else. What can you gleam from the video?
