We've added Panasonic's newest mirrorless camera - the midrange DC-GX9 - to our 'Best Cameras under $1000' buying guide.

The new Pentax K-1 Mark II is identical in many of its core features and specs to its predecessor,... more

Tamron is working on a fast standard zoom lens for full-frame Sony E-mount cameras. Details are thin at this point, but the 28-75mm F2.8 Di III RXD will offer a minimum focus distance of 19cm/7.5in at wide-angle, will measure 11.7cm/4.6in long and weigh in at 19.4oz/1.2lb. Tamron claims the lens will offer excellent optical performance and high-quality bokeh. An 'RXD' stepping motor autofocus unit provides quiet operation for video applications, and the whole thing will be moisture-resistant... more

Tamron is introducing a stabilized 70-210mm F4 tele-zoom for full-frame Canon and Nikon DSLRs. The lens uses an internal zoom mechanism so that the overall length never changes as it's operated and a ring-type ultrasonic motor. It also offers moisture-resistance, up to 5 stops of stabilization and a close focusing distance of 0.95m/37.4in. The 70-210mm F4 includes 20 optical elements in 14 groups, including 3 low-dispersion elements to reduce chromatic aberration.

The 70-210mm F4 is... more

For a limited time this summer, current Pentax K-1 owners will be able to send their cameras in for service, essentially upgrading them to a Mark II. The service will include a main circuit board swap, and the 'SR' logo on the front of the camera will be replaced with a Mark II logo. The upgraded circuit board will add all of the features introduced in the Mark II, such as shooting at up to ISO 819,200 and an updated Pixel Shift mode.

The K-1 upgrade service will cost $550 US / $690... more

Almost exactly two years after its predecessor's introduction, Ricoh is debuting the Pentax K-1 Mark II. It's the company's latest full-frame DSLR and uses the same AA-filterless 36.4MP sensor used by the Mark I, but adds a new 'accelerator' to the imaging pipeline. This addition makes it possible to... more

Pentax K-1 Mark II: What you need to know

The Pentax K-1 was one of the most-anticipated cameras in recent memory. After many starts-and-stops, this full-frame DSLR finally arrived in 2016, much to the delight of Pentax photographers. It offered superb image quality from its 36MP CMOS sensor, 5-axis in-body... more

Panasonic has developed an 8K image sensor capable of shooting 60p video, with wide dynamic range and global shutter. The latter removes the 'rolling shutter' effect from stills and video. The sensor combines an organic photosensitive film that sits atop CMOS circuitry, circumventing one of the biggest problems with traditional global shutter CMOS chips: co-located photosensitive and charge storage areas that compete with one another for space within the surface area of each pixel. This... more
