Along with the Panasonic GX7, Panasonic also announced the Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 lens. This lens is the fastest autofocus lens ever created for the Micro Four Thirds system.
Panasonic has announced the Lumix DMC-GX7 – the follow-up to the DMC-GX1 – which is its first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera to include in-body image stabilization. This 16MP, rangefinder-style camera also includes a high-resolution, widescreen EVF that can be tilted upwards 90 degrees. Panasonic claims that their newly designed Live MOS sensor improves both detail and color saturation by 10%. Other features of note include a tilting LCD, a ‘silent shooting’ mode, focus peaking, 1080/60p videos, and Wi-Fi with NFC capability.
Sony is rumored to announced a new 55-150mm f/2.8 G lens for Sony NEX E-mount cameras. It will be announced along with the new NEX ASP-C cameras and the 16-xx mm zoom lens in September, 2013. And starts shipping in October-November.
Panasonic has announced the Lumix DMC-FZ70, a 16.1MP compact superzoom with a 60x optical zoom. Spanning the equivalent of 20-1200mm it’s the largest zoom lens available in a consumer compact. The FZ70’s zoom lens has a maximum aperture range of F2.8-5.9, and the camera introduces a new 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor capable of 1080 HD 60i video. A wind shield built into the camera’s stereo microphone is designed to improve sound quality on windy days, and the microphone itself is designed to ‘zoom’ with the lens, though Panasonic reps couldn’t provide details on approximate range.
The FZ70 more than doubles the zoom reach of its 24x Lumix DMC-FZ60 predecessor, which it effectively replaces. Naturally with such a long focal reach, the FZ70 offers Panasonic’s Power O.I.S. optical image stabilization. Like its superzoom peers, the FZ70 provides auto and manual exposure modes, as well as Raw shooting.
The long awaited Canon EOS 70D has been officially announced. Featured with a 20.2MP new sensor, 70D is a mid-range, enthusiast-focused APS-C DSLR. Its headline feature is a brand-new 20.2MP ‘Dual Pixel CMOS AF’ sensor which splits every single pixel into two photodiodes for on-chip phase detection, promising vastly improved autofocus performance in live view and movie mode. It also gains the 19-point AF module from the EOS 7D for viewfinder shooting, touchscreen control via its fully articulated 3″ LCD, and built-in Wi-Fi for image sharing and remote camera control from your smartphone or tablet.
