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.

Panasonic-GH4-camera-body
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-D3500-DSLR-camera-rumors
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-a9-camera-rumors-question-makr
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-logo
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-logo
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?

    • tyger11

      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.

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