Sony has just announced the impressively small FE 14mm f/1.8 GM. The company expands its E-mount lens lineup with the introduction of the groundbreaking FE 14mm F1.8 G Master (model SEL14F18GM) – a compact, large F1.8 aperture, ultra-wide angle lens that allows users to capture the world with new perspectives by delivering sharp resolution from corner to corner with little to no distortion, especially when shooting landscapes, architecture, starry skies and interiors.
DJI has unveiled the DJI Air 2S which it claims is the first drone of its size to feature a 1-inch type sensor and capture 20Mp stills or 5.4K video. This size of sensor and video resolution has previously been the preserve of larger drones.
Follow up to the compact Mavic Air 2, which is priced at $799, the drone features a camera with a 1″ sensor, capable of capturing 20MP photos and up to 5.4K/30p or 4K/60p video. Improvements in its Spotlight 2.0 tracking capabilities, plus an upgraded APAS 4.0 obstacle avoidance and detection system, have also been added.
The Air 2S comes with sensors on top of the aircraft and also features four-way obstacle avoidance detection. According to DJI, APAS 4.0 offers a wider FOV for improved detection of obstructions. When recording up to 4K/30p video, the drone can instantly maneuver over, under and around obstacles.
The Fujifilm XF 18mm f/1.4 R WR Lens is now officially announced. The Fujifilm XF 18mm f/1.4 R LM WR is a fast prime lens for X Series mirrorless cameras that provides a 35mm equivalent focal length of 27mm.
Fujifilm already have a 27mm lens in diminutive shape of the XF 18mm F2, which was actually one of the very first lenses that Fuji released back in 2012. The XF 18mm F1.4 is a much larger lens than the 18mm F2, but it’s still relatively small and light enough to feel well-balanced even on the X-S10 that we tested it with, which is one of the smaller X-series camera bodies.
Weighing 370g and measuring 68.8mm x 75.6mm with a reasonable 62mm filter size, the new 18mm is very similar to the 16mm, 23mm and 35mm lenses. The Fujifilm XF 18mm F1.4 R LM WR lens will be available in late May for $999.
Along with the Canon EOS R3 development announcement, Canon has announced three new RF mount lenses, including the 400mm f/2.8, and 600mm f/4 telephoto lenses, and the 100mm f/2.8 MACRO IS USM.

The Macro lens also offers up to 1.4x magnification, which Canon say is a Worlds first for an AF macro lens on full-frame cameras.
The Canon RF 100mm F2.8L Macro IS USM, RF 400mm F2.8L and 600mm F4L will start shipping from July. US Prices are as follows :
