According to recently rumors on PR, Sony will soon announce a new full frame compact camera RX1R III soon, to replace current RX1R II.
As rumored before, Sigma is planning on release their native full frame E-mount lenses for the Sony full frame mirrorless cameras. According to recently interview with Sigma CEO Kazuto Yamaki by Imaging resource, Sigma has confirmed that they are working on new Sigma FE lenses, Kazuto Yamaki said that making a first FE lens is not easy, it need at least two years to develop it, and all new Sigma FE lenses will have brand new optical designs.
The new announced high price Zeiss Batis 135mm f/2.8 lens (Adorama & B&H Photo Video) seems not welcome for most Sony mirrorless shoots. But according to lastest review from Amateur Photographer, this lens is a very great lens from Zeiss: beautifully built, autofocuses silently and accurately, and has very effective image stabilisation, it sets an exceptionally high bar that won’t be easy to match. Amateur said that the image quality of this lens is absolutely sublime – he can’t imagine any prospective buyer being disappointed.
