Laowa 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 FE Zoom

Designed primarily for travel photography, Venus optics have managed to compress the size to smallest in its class, less than 10 inch (<10cm) and only 1.1 pounds (<500g). The 102° (18mm) to 130° (10mm) angle of view provides flexibility for photographers to compose landscape or architecture photos with ease. The lens houses with 14 elements in 10 groups with 2 aspherical elements & 1 extra-low dispersion element to deliver exceptional performance. It can focus as close as 15cm for some mini-macro shooting. A rear filter slot is included to fit with 37 mm filter. Click/clickless aperture can be toggled by the switch on the lens barrel.

Followed by the success of the Laowa 60mm f/2.8 2:1 Macro, the 100mm f/2.8 2:1 Macro is the 2nd member of Laowa 2:1 macro line-up. This new 100mm lens can cover full frame sensor size and focus from 2:1 magnification to infinity. The wide magnification range allows macro photographers to capture subject at any sizes. This 100mm portrait lens also features an apochromatic (APO) characteristic that no chromatic aberration can be found. The 12 elements in 10 groups optics design delivers a crystal sharpness image in both macro and tele distances. Canon EF / Nikon AI / Pentax K / Sony FE mounts are available.

Laowa 17mm f/4 GFX Zero-D

This is currently the widest available native lens option for Fujifilm G-mount cameras. The new Laowa 17mm f/4 GFX has a field of view equivalent to 13mm in 35mm format (113°). Featuring a close-to-zero distortion and 86mm filter thread, this lens is ideally suited for landscape, architecture & interior photography. The 21 elements in 14 groups design with 2pcs of aspherical & 3pcs of Extra-low dispersion elements successfully help to control the distortion & chromatic aberrations to the minimal.

Canon Working on Hybrid Viewfinders For DSLRS

 

Canon is working on to improve the DSLR viewfinder by adding a extra layer Hybrid EVF over it. Adding a extra layer of Hybrid EVF will going to solve all the problems associated to the optical viewfinder in the current generation of DSLR camera.

Advantage of Having Hybrid Viewfinder in DSLR camera

  1. In general the DSLR viewfinder become dead  while you are recording a video, because the mirror is flipped up and the DSLR sensor on work, so at that moment the optical viewfinder becomes inactive. One of the biggest advantage include Hybrid viewfinder, is that you can use it while you are creating video from your DSLR.
  2. Introduction of Global shutter in DSLRs, after adding hybrid EVF for DSLR maker it will become easy to go beyond 20FPS or even more than that while keeping your viewfinder active. Since, the flipping Mirror do have limited physical speed and once they reach physical limit it is not possible to use global shutter with optical viewfinder.

Canon Affordable Fullframe Mirrorless in 2019 ?

Canon fullframe mirrorless image

According to latest rumors surfaced over the web, Canon is working on two different series of Fullframe mirrorless cameras, first they will announce High-End Mirrorless camera on Sep 2018 and after making 6 to 7 months of gap from pro mirrorless announcement they will introduce a new lower tier series camera to reach out more people. That clearly indicates the second (affordable) FF mirrorless announcement will happen in 2019 for sure.

Same strategy is being followed by Fuji and Sony, After Sony A9 ($4498 amazon.com) was announced back on April 2017 and once the sales number are reached to a certain point Sony introduced Sony A7 III ($1998 Amazon.com) camera on Feb 2018 with almost same core specs as of Sony A9 (Same sensor and same AF system) and all those with a price less than $2500 compared to Sony A9 flagship camera.

One more important thing that Source mentioned is “a really nice solution for EF lenses on the full frame mirrorless body” . That also silently confirms, no native EF Mount based Fullframe Mirrorless camera is coming.
