At Photokina 2018, LensVid has interviewed Zeiss manager talking about upcoming Zeiss ZX1 full frame compact camera. This camera will be available in early 2019.
Lensvid has a new Photokina 2018 inteview with Mike Burnhill from Canon Europe. Mike Burnhill has talked a lot about the new Canon EOS R (B&H Photo Video/Amazon/Adorama/Focus Camera/WEX/ParkCamera) and RF lenses. The interesting part are here:
- Canon will focus on RF lenses next.
- No new EF lenses to be released in 2019 (Which means EF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS will coming in 2020)
- Canon promised to release the “holy trinity” of RF mount lenses in 2019 (24-70mm, 70-200mm, 16-35mm, likely be f/2.8).
- Canon also said EOS R is not targeted for pro shooters
- A high-end level EOS R Pro mirrorless camera will probably have a dual card slot, IBIS, fast shooting speed, 4K Video 10bit 4:2:2 internally and more.

Cinema5D has just interviewed with Sony Manager talking about the release date of Sony a7S III. According to the interview, currently Sony a7S III is in development, but in order to go beyond customer’s expectations (To Surpass Panasonic S1 & S1R ?), they need a lot of work and time to achieve this. This means as Yutaka said “for time frame, it may require longer than you probably imagine“.
Since Sony a7 III announced at CP+ Show 2018, there are more and more talk about full frame mirrorless cameras. According to recently interview with Sony Manager Kenji Tanaka, Sony Senior General Manager of the Digital Imaging Business Group, he said both Canon and Nikon will release their first full frame mirrorless cameras before CP+ Show 2019 in Japan, within one year.
