New in Photography: Nikon’s DX Ultra-wide-angle Lens and Sony’s High-end APS-C Camera

Hey, fellow photography enthusiasts! Exciting news in the world of cameras!

Nikon just released a new APS-C format mirrorless lens online – the Z DX 12-28mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ VR.

This lens is an excellent addition to Nikon’s DX-format lens lineup and provides users with more options to choose from.

But wait, there’s more!

When visiting Nikon Germany’s official website, I noticed that they listed ten mirrorless cameras on their product page, but only nine of them are available for sale.

I wonder if this is due to a coding error or if the rumored Z 8 camera is included in the list as well. What do you think?

In other news, Sony is rumored to have a new camera release coming up – a high-end APS-C format body that features the same 26-megapixel sensor as the FX30.

This camera is sure to be a game-changer and one to watch out for!

Legendary camera manufacturer Leica will be releasing several new products soon, including the rumored M11 black and white sensor version and the Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH lens.

As a fan of Leica cameras, I can’t wait to get my hands on these new products!

1. Nikon Reveals New Lens

Nikon just leaked a new lens online – the Z DX 12-28mm f/3.5-5.6 PZ VR! This ultra-wide-angle zoom lens is perfect for both photography and videography, and it’s designed to be lightweight and easy to handle.

One of the cool features of this lens is the electric zoom function, which allows users to zoom in or out and remotely control the zoom speed.

The lens specifications are impressive as well, with 12 elements in 11 groups, including 1 ED lens element and 1 aspherical lens element.

The DX-format angle of view ranges from 99° to 53°, and the minimum focus distance is 0.19m at all zoom positions.

The lens also comes with VR image stabilization, which is essential for getting sharp images and videos.

The aperture range is f/3.5 to f/16 at 12mm and f/5.6 to f/25 at 28mm. It has 7 circular diaphragm blades and a filter-attachment size of 67mm.

The dimensions are 72mm x 63.5mm, and it weighs approximately 205g.

But wait, there’s more! When visiting Nikon Germany’s camera product page, I noticed that they displayed ten cameras on the page, but only nine of them are currently available for sale.

What’s up with that? Could the tenth camera be the long-rumored Z 8 camera? We’ll have to wait and see.

3. Leica to Release M11 Monochrom on April 13th

In other news, Leica is set to release several new products this week, including the highly-anticipated M11 Monochrome with a black and white sensor and the Summilux-M 50mm f/1.4 ASPH lens.

The M11 Monochrom is rumored to have the highest dynamic range of any Leica camera to date, and it comes in a sleek black color.

It’s expected to retail at around $9,200 (approximately RMB 63,000), and it has 256GB of built-in storage, no red dot, and a 15-stop dynamic range – the highest among current Leica models.

If you’re a fan of black-and-white photography, this camera is definitely worth checking out!

The Summilux-M 50 1.4 ASPH lens is also getting an upgrade.

It now features 11 aperture blades (up from 9 in the previous version) and has improved optics, which should provide better support for high-resolution cameras.

Plus, it has a minimum focusing distance of 45cm (down from 70cm in the previous version), making it a great option for portrait and macro photography.

The price is the same as the previous version at $4,500, or $4,800 for the silver version.

4. Fuji X-S20 to Feature 26-Megapixel Sensor

According to reliable sources, the upcoming Fuji X-S20 is set to feature a 26-megapixel BSI X-Trans IV sensor, which is the same sensor used in other popular Fuji models like the X-T4, X-T3, and X-S10.

This means you can expect top-notch image quality and color reproduction from the X-S20, which is great news for anyone who wants a high-quality camera that’s easy to use.

While there are no rumors yet about the processor in the X-S20, it’s highly likely to use the X-Processor 5, which is the same processor used in other recent Fuji models.

This means you can expect lightning-fast performance and speedy autofocus, making it easier than ever to capture those perfect shots.

Overall, the Fuji X-S20 is shaping up to be an incredible camera, and I can’t wait to see it in action.

That’s all for now, folks. Stay tuned for more exciting photography news and updates!
