Announced - Canon EF Lens to Micro Four Thirds Speed Booster


At long last the Canon EF to Micro 43 speedbooster has been announced. While it has been available in a Nikon lens version for some time, the Canon version has electronic pass-through which will allow aperture & IS to be used with this speedbooster. The adapter will yield a .71x crop factor and give you a 1 stop advantage for mirrorless cameras such as the Panasonic GH4. This is a welcome addition and will make many GH4 owners (like myself) very happy.

Rokinon has announced what is bound to be another awesome wide aperture cine lens for those video shooters on a budget. This lens is available in mounts for Canon, Nikon, Sony (No Sony FE mount so Sony A7s owners will need an adapter), and Micro 4/3. This lens should be available November 5th for $549. Panasonic GH4 owners might be better served with the Nikon version and Metabones Speedbooster adapter.

Fuji X30 Announced


Fuji has at long last introduced an upgrade to the excellent Fuji X20 which was one of my favorite cameras. The new Fuji X30 swaps out the optical viewfinder for a new 2.3m dot OLED EVF and also adds a tilting 3.0" main display to the back. Most of the internals remain the same with a 12MP sensor, ISO 100-12,800 range, and 1080p movie recording at 60fps. The fast 28-112mm f2-f2.8 offers great quality though the smaller 2/3" sensor might be a some. 
I was a big fan of the sensor on the original x20 (check out the review) though I did hope for some improvements. Overall, this is a great camera with solid build quality, great look, and unbelievable image quality.
It is available for purchase for $599:

Sony Alpha A5100 Announced


Sony has just announced the new Sony Alpha A5100 for $549 (body only) and $699 with the 16-50mm f3.5-5.6 lens. This camera brings the awesome Sony 24mp sensor with an APS-C e mount which is sure to yield some of the best quality available of any camera in this category. With an even smaller body (due to no EVF) and faster AF, the Sony is definitely a camera that should be on your want list.
