List of upcoming announcements/rumored cameras and lenses

Here is a quick recap on what new cameras and lenses to expect in the next few days and months before the 2016 Photokina show:

Hasselblad mirrorless medium format camera
Hasselblad mirrorless medium format camera (announcement on June 22nd).

Fuji X-T2 camera leak
Fuji X-T2 camera (announcement on July 7th).

Olympus E-PL8 camera
Olympus E-PL8 camera (no release date yet - the official announcement got delayed because of the recent Kumamoto earthquake). A new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera is also expected with 4k video, handheld high resolution mode, 20MP sensor, improved AF and EVF. At least two new MFT lenses are also expected/rumored.

The new Panasonic GH5 camera could also be announced with 6k or 8k video recording capabilities. A Panasonic LX100 camera successor is also expected.

Nikon will soon announce a replacement for their D3300 DSLR camera. A new 70-300mm lens is also expected. New Nikon mirrorless camera is also a possibility.

Sony could announce a new A9 camera, but as it is the case with all Sony rumors, the Web is full of bogus information and there is still nothing reliable worth reporting here.

Leica is rumored to announce a new Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6 lens. A new digital M rangefinder is also expected for Photokina.

Canon is rumored to announce a new Canon 5D Mark IV camera, EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS lens and at least one mirrorless camera.

    Save some for Photokina m’kay?

    • the announcements are usually before the show, not during the show

  • Joey

    RX100 V, LX200, or Canon G1x III?

      Oh man, an LX200 with a mic port and flip-n-twist viewscreen would be great.

  • Mike

    Christmas in summer!

    Do we really think the GH5 will be able to record 6K or 8K?? That seems kinda silly.

  • tyger11

    Also new canon 24-105 f/4 L IS as kit lens for 5D Mk IV, or so they say. Hopefully it’ll be the optical equal of the Sigma version.

    I really hope GH5 will feature a brand new multi aspect sensor with 6K capabilities…If not, it will very hard for GH4 owner’s to justify the purchase.

  • I’m interested in the proposed “handheld high resolution mode” that may appear on the OM-D E-M1 successor. I would really like this to be a four-shot mode with an option in-camera to produce a 20Mpx ORF file with full colour information at each sensel (as well as produce humungous hi-res files for those that want them).

    I also want to see what improvements might eventuate in the EVF. I like the EVF in the current E-M1, but wouldn’t say no to increased resolution or new features.

    A wishlist for a medium format mirrorless camera.

  • von

    When do you think we’ll see the new Sigma 24-70?
