Recent Mirrorless News Shorts (July 29-Aug 13)

As an experiment, I’ve started accumulating “small” news announcements into a once-a-week story. This helps me be a little more productive and seems to align with the way most people are coming to this site (once or twice a week, but every week). Here’s the most recent “small” news relating to mirrorless cameras (similar Z System news is on the site):

  • Pergear announced the 60mm f/2.8 II Ultra-macro lens, an updated version of its 2x crop sensor lens.
  • Tamron sent out a Development Announcement for the next generation of the 70-180mm f/2.8 lens. The lens will get a G2 moniker and now include VC image stabilization. Other changes will be a shorter minimum focus distance at the wider focal length, and the inclusion of VXD focus motors instead of stepping motors. The optical design is also said to have been enhanced.
  • Zhong Yi Optics introduced three t/1 cine lenses for the Z mount: 20mm, 35mm, 50mm.
  • The previously announced Fringer EF-FX Pro III adapter (Canon EF to Fujifilm XF) has started shipping. The main change is added weather sealing.
  • Voigtlander announced the 50mm f/1.2 NOKTON lens for the Fujifilm XF system.
  • Laowa announced a new wide angle zoom lens for crop sensor mirrorless cameras at a Chinese trade show.
