I went through the whole lot of cameras that were announced this year to see which were the ones that caught our attention
1: Pentax K-1
2: Leica M-D
3: Fujifilm GFX 50S & Hasselblad X1D-50c
Interesting aspect: Mirrorless medium format leads the way!
It’s a tie between the Hasselblad X1D-50c and the Fujifilm GFX 50S. While Hasselblad has the accolade of being the first to announce the world’s first mirrorless medium format camera in June, Fujifilm stole the thunder during Photokina in September with the GFX 50S. It’ll be interesting to see how the mainstream crowd takes to these 2 cameras, and how other camera manufacturers react to such market changes.
4: Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II
5: Nikon DL series
