Fujifilm X80

Fol­low­ing a flurry of re­leases from Fuji, in­clud­ing the X-Pro2, X-T2, X100F and X-T20, we are ex­pect­ing the fol­low-up to the X70 to be an­nounced shortly. Though well re­viewed, the X70 never quite found its mar­ket and has been dis­con­tin­ued. We’d ex­pect to see the univer­sal 24MP X-Trans CMOS III pro­ces­sor, fixed lens and touch­screen on the X70’s suc­ces­sor, as well as the pos­si­bil­ity of a built-in EVF this time around.

Fu­ji­non XF 8-16mm f/2.8

There are ru­mours cir­cu­lat­ing that the next lens to be an­nounced by Fuji will be a su­per wide-an­gle 8-16mm f/2.8. This would sur­pass its cur­rent widest lens, the XF 14mm f/2.8, and bol­ster its ever in­creas­ing X-se­ries lens line-up. Fuji is cur­rently sched­uled to re­lease both a 50mm f/2 and an 80mm f/2.8 1:1 macro lens in 2017. Given the cur­rent lack of a na­tive 1:1 macro in the range, this will be wel­come news for Fuji own­ers look­ing to ex­pand their macro port­fo­lio.

Nikon D820

It’s been for­ever, but we are still hop­ing Nikon will an­nounce the re­place­ment to the full-frame D810, which has been on sale since July 2014. We’d love to see Nikon re­gain a foot­ing in the megapixel stakes, and we’re ex­pect­ing at least a 42MP Sony sen­sor with an Ex­peed 5 pro­ces­sor and bet­ter na­tive ISO of 12,500. We’ve heard rum­blings that the next ver­sion will also fea­ture 4K video, and pos­si­bly even 6K, though re­al­is­ti­cally this is prob­a­bly un­likely.
