Tamron has announced three new lenses are in development and expected to be released the middle of 2019: a 35-150mm f2.8-4 Di VC OSD, an SP 35mm f1.4 Di USD, and an E-mount 17-28mm f2.8 Di III RXD.
In conjunction with their X-T30 announcement, Fujifilm has announced a new lens and firmware updates coming to their existing cameras. The new lens, a 16mm F2.8 R WR will be a compact, weather-sealed 24mm-equivalent (full-frame equivalent) lens positioned as a companion to the existing popular 23mm, 35mm, and 50mm WR primes from Fuji.
Canon has announced the second full-frame camera in their mirrorless lineup: the EOS RP. Advertised as lightweight and compact, the new camera has a 26 megapixel sensor with Canon’s Dual Pixel AF system, 4K recording, a fully-articulating LCD screen, and a DIGIC 8 processor for great low-light performance. Six RF-mount lenses have also been announced to be in development for release later this year.
Nikon has announced the latest in their mirrorless lens lineup: a ZF 24-70mm F2.8S. Widely considered a workhorse focal length, the 24-70mm F2.8 is a versatile lens with a bright aperture. This particular iteration has been designed as a lighter and smaller version in comparison to Nikon’s F-mount 24-70mm F2.8, and has been highly anticipated by users of the Z6 and Z7 mirrorless cameras released by Nikon last year.
