Sigma has become the latest company to announce a full-frame mirrorless digital camera, and the Sigma fp is unique in its approach.

Sigma also becomes the third maker to produce a camera that uses the L mount.

The Sigma fp began as a concept camera. Unlike other concept models, the concept is the camera. Concept models usually are used to test different designs and features, and the final product often looks different from the test model.

Fujifilm doesn’t stand still when it comes to its X-series of mirrorless cameras. In addition to news lenses, the company also has released another body.

In this case, it’s the Fujifilm X-T30, which is the body that uses SLR-like styling.

The X-T30 uses a 26.1-MP X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor that lacks a low-pass filter. Fujifilm says the camera uses the new X-Processor 4 Quad Core CPU, which helps the face-detection system for both stills and video.

Fujifilm has added a second 16mm lens to its X-series lineup, and it’s a less-expensive alternative.

The Fujinon f/2.8 XF16mm R WR fits all X-series bodies that use the APS-C sensor. It is a 24mm full-frame equivalent.

At just 5.5 ounces (155 grams), this lens uses a mix of metal and composite materials. Fujifilm says the barrel is made of metal and seals the lens in nine locations to protect it from dust and moisture.

Canon EOS RP

Just five months after jumping into the full-frame mirrorless segment with one of the most expensive cameras, the Canon EOS RP represents the other end – the entry-level or budget-minded photographer.

The EOS RP is smaller and lighter than the R, as you would expect of an entry-level model, and coming in US$1,000 less expensive. It will be easier on your shoulder and your bank account.

While Panasonic isn’t abandoning the consortium, it is embarking on a new journey by jumping into the full-frame mirrorless market.

Rather than reinvent the wheel, Sony has taken a different path with its cameras, and that’s to build new features onto an exisiting body.

Sony’s latest APS-C mirrorless camera, the a6400, makes some improvements over its predecessors while retaining the same body shell. That works out well for current owners, as the transition to the new body will take less time.

HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW

Every major digital system has a premium normal lens, and now Pentax is among them with its HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW.

The lens is part of the Pentax Star line and is dustproof and weather-resistant. The lens is priced at US$1,199.95.

It uses the KA4 mount, which means that it lacks an aperture ring. That limits its use to Pentax cameras that can provide electromagnetic aperture control.

Pentax K-1 II

Pentax is one of the beloved names of photography, first capturing a generation with the Spotmatic and then introducing 35mm film via the K1000.

In the digital space, the Pentax name hasn’t been at the top of the leaderboard. Even with the Pentax brand now being part of Ricoh.

But that doesn’t mean Pentax doesn’t have a viable digital camera. In 2016, Pentax released its first full-frame DSLR, the K-1. This year, the camera has undergone an update.
