Sony DSC-RX1R announced, Price, Specs, Release Date, Where to Buy

Sony DSC-RX1R

Sony has introduced the new Cyber-shot RX1R full-frame premium compact camera. In terms of operation and functionality the RX1R is exactly the same as the RX1 that’s been on sale since last Fall, the only difference being that it has no anti-aliasing (AA) filter. In theory, this means that you’ll get even better resolution than the original RX1, with the trade-off of increased moiré. Everything else remains the same as before, which means that the RX1R sports an F2, 35mm lens, 24MP CMOS sensor, 1080/60p movie recording, and much more.

Fujifilm XF 27mm f 2.8 Pancake lens

Fujifilm has introduced the XF 27mm F2.8, a compact ‘pancake’ lens for its X-system cameras. It’s just 23mm thick and weighs only 78g, making it by far the smallest X-mount lens.

Fujifilm X-M1

The Fujifilm X-M1 now officially announced, a compact-bodied mirrorless camera that features a rather different design to its previous models.

It has a tilting 920k dot 3″ LCD screen but no eye-level viewfinder, and uses the same 16MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor as the X-Pro1 and X-E1. It comes with a new kit zoom, the XC 16-50mm F3.6-5.6 OIS that offers a 24-75mm equivalent range and optical stabilisation, but has no aperture ring.
