Poll: What do you think about the new Leica 8-18mm lens?


By now you know everything about the new Leica 8-18mm f/2.8-4.0 right? I guess not many of you will buy the lens also because you probably do own the Panasonic and Olympus 7-14mm lenses. So here is the question for you:

Will you buy the new Leica 8-18mm lens?

Reminder: Panasonic and Blackmagic will announce new products at NAB!


Quick reminder:

  1. Panasonic will have a press conference on Sunday at 2pm Las Vegas time. I haven’t heard of any new MFT mount camera to be announced on that event. But we can expect Panasonic to announce new camcorders
  2. Blackmagic will announce new products on Monday. Still not sure if there will be a new BlackMagic MFT Pocket Cinema Camera.

Off Brand: Sony A9 announced


Yesterday Sony did announce the new Sony A9. The news is interesting for two reasons:

  1. This is the first Mirrorless System Camera that seems to be capable to do Sports Photography. Nikon and Canon do own that segment and it’s the first time they might have to be really worried?
  2. The A9 does NOT compete against the new Panasonic GH5. Video specs are quite disappointing (no S-LOG, no 4k60fps and so on)

So for now the Panasonic Gh5 remains the king of the Hybrid Mirrorless world.
