What happens when third-party lens companies start making lenses that are better and cheaper than native lenses?
With Sony, that seems to be what's happening and it could put them in a dangerous position.
There is a lot of buzz going on around this new rumor everyone is calling the X-T4. Since everyone is sharing their thoughts and opinions in the community, I wanted to share mine regarding what this camera will be and who for. It seems obvious to me but of course, I could be way off.
When comparing the GoPro Hero5 to the Hero6, on the outside it doesn't look like much has changed. Even looking at the specs, it doesn't seem like there are any huge updates after this one year cycle. Higher frame rate and video stability at 4k are not that big of a deal to a lot of people, especially if you already have a Karma Grip.
However, when you get both cameras and put them side-by-side, you'll immediately notice huge improvements with the Hero6! Huge! I'll list just a few.
Sony has put out two new full frame E-Mount lenses, the 50mm f1.4 and the 70-200mm f2.8 GM lens. Two very needed lenses that will give Sony shooters some amazing capabilities without having to use third party gear.
The Fujifilm X-T2 has finally been announced and will begin shipping September 8.
The camera has all the great things we love about the X-Pro 2, except it now includes 4k video, a 3 way tilting screen screen, usb charging, and more AF points, at 325 compared to 273.
X-Pro 2 still has a few features the X-T2 does not, including a significantly higher resolution LCD screen at 1.62m - Dots compared to the Fujifilm's XT2's 1.04m, and also a hybrid optical viewfinder.
Sigma announces a new MC-11 Canon EF or Sigma Lens adapter for the Sony E-Mount. This works for both Full Frame and APS-C Sony cameras.
The new adapter is priced between the Metabones adapter and the Fotodiox adapter at $249.00. This might just be the product and the company that forces Metabones to lower their prices. A win for everyone!
