New Firmware Ver. 2.1 for Nikon Z9 to be Released Soon

According to latest rumors, Nikon is rumored to release a new firmware version 2.1 for Nikon Z9 in the next 7-14 days. The new firmware includes AF fixes and improvements, but will also include some important updates.

It is rumored that Nikon’s new APS-C mirrorless camera will be announced at the end of June or early July, so we think there will be multiple announcements on the same day (the new Z 400mm F4.5 is also expected to be announced).

The new firmware for Nikon Z9 seems to be a surprisingly big update, including improvements in AF. Also, it seems that the previously rumored APS-C mirrorless camera and interchangeable lens may be announced at the same time, and if Nikon Rumors expected, the next Nikon announcement will be a large one.

The Nikon Z9 competitors in this price range are mainly the “Canon EOS R3” and “Sony a1“.

Nikon Z9 body: $5,496.95 at AmazonB&HAdorama.

Sony RX10 V to be Released in Late 2022

According to latest Sony rumors, Sony will announce a high-power zoom camera with a fixed lens in late 2022. This rumor refers to the highly anticipated Sony RX  10V. 

“The main differentiator (from the current model) is that AI / Computation Photo technology will be introduced for the first time as a Sony camera. Also, the design and ergonomics have been improved, the flash has disappeared, and the α6600. The same battery will be used. The lens will be the same as the old model. This camera will be blackout-free and will have a continuous shooting function of up to 24 frames / sec.”

Since the information is unreliable, it seems better to ask about half the story at the moment, but if Sony RX10 V really appears, it will be the first model change in 5 years.

Currently, the market for integrated lens cameras is significantly smaller than before, but Panasonic, Nikon, and Canon still have a lineup of large integrated lens cameras equipped with high-power zoom, so Sony is in this category. It may not be so strange to introduce a new model with.

If the specs are as rumored, the new model is likely to be a normal evolution model that uses AI technology.

Fujifilm Unveils Latest Development Roadmap for Interchangeable Lenses in X Series of Mirrorless Digital Cameras

Addition of three new XF lenses creates an extensive 42-lens lineup, broadening the X Series’ reach

Valhalla, N.Y., May 31, 2022 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation today unveiled its latest development roadmap for interchangeable XF lenses in the X Series of compact and lightweight mirrorless digital cameras. The latest roadmap features the addition of three new lenses: a large-diameter mid-telephoto prime lens, a standard macro lens, and an ultra-wide-angle prime lens.

Fujifilm has been expanding the lineup of XF lenses to broaden the appeal of premium image quality and advanced mobility made possible by the X Mount system1. As part of this expansion, a medium telephoto prime lens joins the new generation of large-aperture prime lenses, which will now cover broad focal lengths from 18mm (wide angle, equivalent to 27mm in the 35mm film format) to 56mm (mid-telephoto, equivalent to 85mm in the 35mm film format). These lenses will offer outstanding image quality and image-resolving power in an extremely broad range of photographic situations.

Additionally, as part of this roadmap, the compact prime series of XF lenses will have two additions: a standard macro lens and an ultra-wide-angle lens. These complement existing lenses in the XF Series by expanding the situations for suitable lens use, catering to users’ diverse needs.

Interchangeable lenses newly added to the roadmap:

XF56mmF1.2 Lens – A fast, medium telephoto prime lens

A mid-telephoto lens to join the new generation of “large-aperture prime lenses” in the XF Series.

XF30mmF2.8 R Macro Lens – A standard macro lens

A compact macro lens with a standard angle of view. Its compact and lightweight design makes it a perfect walkaround lens, covering a wide range of image-making situations including snapshots, landscape, portrait, as well as tabletop photography of foods and accessories.

XF8mmF3.5 Lens – An ultra-wide-angle prime lens

A compact ultra-wide-angle lens that will be the widest X Mount prime lens in the XF Series. Despite the ultra-wide-angle focal length, the lens is compact and lightweight, making it an ideal walkaround lens.

“We listened to consumers’ thoughts, wants, and needs, and responded with a comprehensive set of new lenses that will enhance any Fujifilm photographer’s kit,” said Victor Ha, vice president, Electronic Imaging and Optical Devices Divisions, FUJIFILM North America Corporation. “With our versatile lineup now including 42 lenses, including the three that were just added to the development roadmap, Fujifilm continues to demonstrate its commitment to helping our community find new creative moments through lenses that allow the creator to see things differently.”

XF30mmF2.8 R Macro and XF56mmF1.2 are expected to be available in late 2022. XF8mmF3.5 is expected to be available in early 2023.
