FUJIFILM X-T30 a mid-range camera with many of its specifications borrowed from the X-T3. This body is of course cheaper, lighter and it has 4K video. There is a short review over at DPreview for those interested.
CANON EOS RP A stripped down version of the recently launched EOS R, lighter much cheaper. Currently, the most inexpensive full-frame mirrorless camera on the market still has the ageing 6D sensor and a set of not so impressive specifications, but it is Canon, and it is a cheaper way to get into full-frame. Again a brief review over at DPREVIEW
A NEW LENS FROM SONY
Sony has recently launched an FE 135mm f/1.8 GM Lens obviously aimed at their mirrorless bodies such as A7II, A7III and A7IIIR where it will make an ideal portrait lens. It can also be operated on a number of their APS-C camera bodies where it will be equivalent to just a tad over 200mm.
The f1.8 on this focal length will give you wonderful fuzzy out of focus backgrounds. Or if you’re trendy, bokeh.
And the GM in the lens name stands for Grand Master series, Sony’s top of the line lenses. So I’m assuming if you want to be a “Grand Master of Photography” this piece of kit is for you.
