Sony 135mm f/1.8

We have heard whis­pers of a new Sony fast-aper­ture full-frame por­trait lens. Ri­valling the ex­cep­tional Canon 135mm f/2L, this new lens will have a wide aper­ture of f/1.8 and is ex­pected to be one of the sharpest lenses in the tech gi­ant’s range. Al­though this is a very spe­cial­ist fo­cal length, we’re sure it will find a home with any­body who con­cen­trates on tak­ing peo­ple shots.

Nikon DF MkII

With all the talk about the Nikon D820 or D760, we think it’s likely that a DF MkII could be on the cards. We ex­pect the clas­si­cally-styled full-frame to in­clude the same 24.3MP sen­sor as the D750 (a step up from the cur­rent 16.2MP), a max­i­mum ISO of 51,200, the Ex­peed 4 pro­ces­sor (rather than the cur­rent model’s Ex­peed 3), and a 51-point AF sys­tem. We wouldn’t ex­pect to see 4K or many added fea­tures, given the lean­ing to­wards a more retro-style per­for­mance found in the first Nikon DF.

Le­ica 50-200mm f/2.8-4

Mi­cro Four Thirds users re­joice... we hear there is a new Le­ica lens on the way and it fea­tures an amaz­ing zoom range of 100-400mm (35mm equiv­a­lent). Such a wide fo­cal range would make it a per­fect sports or wildlife lens, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing the fast aper­ture. We’d re­ally love to see this lens come with at least 5 stops of IS, giv­ing even more power to cap­ture fast ac­tion with­out the need to carry a large tri­pod or work in per­fect light. le­ica-cam­
