It’s a Lensy Time

In the run-up to CP+ at the end of February, we only had three new cameras announced (Canon R8 and R50, Panasonic S5 II). 

Lens announcements, on the other hand, have been much more on display during the first two months of 2023:

Some of these are not yet officially released yet, but then again a few previously announced lenses that weren’t previously available are starting to come into stock (e.g. the Tokina mirror telephotos). Overall, however, there’s a little bit of something for everyone in the lenses that have come into view. If you’re counting:

  • Canon RF — 5
  • Fujifilm XF — 6
  • L-mount — 4
  • Nikon Z — 7
  • M4/3 — 1
  • Sony E — 6

Again, something for almost everyone. 

More new cameras all seem to be targeted for the March-June timeframe. I believe that Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus, and Sony will all have new camera launches in those three months. That’s going to make those considering buying for a summer vacation or trip be right at their decision threshold date, particularly when you know that some of those products will certainly not be delivered in quantity to meet initial demand.
