According to latest rumors around the web Sony RX20 Coming Soon with 4K recording option and blessed with XAVC-S Codec, plus 120fps frame rate option will be added to the HD recording of Sony RX20. The camera will feature same sensor and lens as of Sony RX10, minor upgrade will be added in the overall specification, the predicessor will suffer from a $100-200 price drop just after the announcement of Sony RX20, the RX20 rumored price will be approx 1300 USD/1050 GBP. I think Sony is in hurry to announce Panasonic FZ1000 competitor.

In an interview published at CNET Sigma’s CEO Kazuto Yamaki said that they are planning to announce a “very unique lens” next year that never exited in the market.
What new models can we expect? Replacements for mainstay lenses like the 70-200mm or models that fit into the holes of your competitors’ product lines?
Yamaki: We have two directions. We have to develop the traditional lenses like the 50mm f1.4, but the other direction is that I really want to make a very unique lens that never existed in the market. That is a big motivation for me. Sigma has a history of releasing unique new lenses. In the 1970s, Sigma was the first company that developed the wide-angle zoom lens. It was 21-35mm. We are always trying to some something new.
Is there anything new coming this year?
Yamaki: We have already announced our products for this year. Next year we will have several new items.
Something nobody else has?
Yamaki: Next year.
However thy are still looking at the possibilities..
A zoom or prime [fixed focal length] lens?
Yamaki: Both. Well, we are still studying it. We’re not sure we can release it to the market. A new product is quite risky. Sometimes we have to give up in the middle of the development. We were very fortunate to complete the 18-35mm f1.8 design.

According to a latest rumor surfaced over the web, the upcoming Canon 5D Mark IV and Canon 6D Mark II camera will feature Dual-pixel CMOS AF Sensor, 6D Mark II is also rumored to feature tillable display unit….
the above mentioned (Canon fullframe Dual-pixel CMOS sensor) rumor look bit true to me since Canon started upgrading the Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensor from entry level DSLRs (SL1, 700D) and after that they added 1st gen of Dual pixel CMOS AF sensor to mid-range APS-C DSLR (70D) and finally the APS-C flagship –> 7D Mark II announced with 2nd gen of Dual-pixel CMOS AF Sensor… so it’s natural processor of upgradation and will soon hit Canon FF DSLRs.

In an interview published at Dpreview, Masaya Maeda, the Managing Director and Chief Executive, Image Communication Products Operations confirmed that Canon is working on serious mirrorless camera system other than EOS-M
Currently no Canon camera offers more than 22MP. Do your DSLR customers ask for higher resolution?
Maeda: Yes. We know that many of our customers need more resolution and this is under consideration. In the very near future you can expect us to show something in terms of mirrorless and also a higher resolution sensor.
Nice to see that Canon and Nikon (see here) both taking mirrorless segment very seriously, and finally high resolution sensors DSLRs / Mirrorless is also expected to arrive in near future from Canon… Stay with us more coming….

During an interview with dpreview Canon Managing Director and Chief Executive Masaya Maeda confirmed that recently announced Canon G7X sensor is not made by Canon.
A part of the interview
“Canon released two cameras at Photokina – the EOS 7D Mark II and PowerShot G7X. One thing we’ve learned is that the sensor in the G7X is not made by Canon. Does this represent a new philosophy at Canon?
We select the best sensor, whoever the manufacturer is. That’s our policy.”
Canon G7 X Sensor made by Sony?
We are not confirmed but the specification of Canon G7X sensor matches the specification of Sony RX100 M3 sensor…
Now take a look at the physical specification of Canon G7X and Sony RX100 M3 Sensor

Nikon D750 and Canon 5D Mark III specification comparison review, the Canon 5D Mark III is approx a 2 year old camera and Nikon D750 is few weeks old.. so take a look at the difference below
Nikon is giving you bit more resolution, but I am amazed that Nikon took 2+ years to develop a 5D mark III rival and still the AF system of the recently announced Nikon D750 is inferior to 5D Mark III.
- Nikon D750 -> 51 distinct points available, you get options to use 9, 21, or all 51 points depending on the situation.
- Canon 5D Mark III -> 61-point autofocus system with upto 41 cross-type AF points (with f/4 lens support) and 5 dual diagonal AF points (with f/2.8 sensitivity).
The ISO range of Nikon D750 is also limited to 51200 only on the other hand the 5D Mark III ISO range touches 102400 mark, hence no doubt that the 5D Mark III will perform better in low light condition when compared to Nikon D750.
Nikon is offering a better Full HD Video mode with tilting display system and bit more resolution… and the (only) best part is it is more affordable compared to 5D Mk 3
and finally the verdict, the Canon 5D Mark III gives you advance AF system, more ISO range and based on specification comparison review we recommend you to buy 5D Mk 3.
