Tamron is still exploring the possibility of developing mirrorless lenses for Nikon Z-mount

Tamron is still exploring the possibility of developing mirrorless lenses for Nikon Z-mount

The three new lenses Tamron just announced

Tamron still doesn't know if they will develop mirrorless lenses for Nikon Z-mount - the company is currently researching the new mount and exploring their options.

Because of the major differences between the three full-frame mirrorless mounts (Sony E, Canon R and Nikon Z), Tamron cannot just adapt the current Sony mirrorless lenses to Z-mount.

It takes Tamon approximately 1.5 years for Tamron to develop a new lens - the earliest we can expect to see new Tamron Z mirrorless lenses would be in early 2020.

Tamron thinks it is important for them to offer lenses for Nikon Z and Canon R mounts.

Nikon Z7 underwater camera review

Nikon Z7 underwater camera review

Nikon Z7 underwater camera review is by Backscatter.com (Facebook | Instagram | Youtube):

The Nikon Z7 is the first full-frame mirrorless camera from Nikon, and it’s a high-resolution 46-megapixel beast that produces the best overall image quality seen yet from a mirrorless camera. Team Backscatter set the camera up in a housing and headed down to the Caribbean for a comprehensive underwater field test. Read on and watch the video below to learn what underwater shooters need to know about the Nikon Z7 and why we have affectionately dubbed it the ‘Mini-D850’.

Topic Time Codes00:28 - Image Quality02:25 - Electronic Viewfinder05:07 - Autofocus07:23 - Camera Body & Controls09:35 - How We Shot It11:21 - Video13:26 - ConclusionsThe Best Image Quality That We’ve Seen From A Mirrorless Camera

In the case of the Nikon Z7, we are comparing the image quality against the Nikon D850 - which is the Nikon Z7’s closest relative - and our current pick for best still image quality produced from any camera tested underwater so far.

The Nikon Z7 produces rich images on par quality-wise with it’s bigger brother, the Nikon D850, resulting in shots that are packed with sharp detail and vibrant colors.Nikon Z7 | Nikon 8-15mm @ 15mm | 1/125sec | ƒ11 | ISO 800The Nikon Z7 packs the best imaging sensor found in any current mirrorless camera. Images that the Nikon Z7 captures are packed with sharp detail and vibrant colors and have become the new benchmark by which mirrorless image quality will be judged. The Nikon Z7 is leading the current camera pack when it comes to raw image quality, coming in second only to the Nikon D850. One would have to get down to some really tight pixel-peeping to pick out any significant differences.This school of grunts provides an accurate look at the beautiful color reproduction and sharp image detail that the Nikon Z7 produces straight-out-of-camera.Nikon Z7 | Nikon 8-15mm @ 15mm | 1/125sec | ƒ10 | ISO 100The Nikon Z7 shares the Nikon D850’s native ISO value of 64 for an additional two-thirds of a stop of dynamic range, giving us that phenomenal detail in the highlights and shadows. A good example of this is in wide scenes where the reef in the foreground is dark and the sunball-lit surface is clipping out to pure white.The dynamic range that the Nikon Z7 is capable of, thanks to a native ISO value of 64, allows for super-rich details in both the darkest shadows and brightest highlights, both of which are on full display here in the shadowed reef and bright surface.Nikon Z7 | Nikon 8-15mm @ 15mm | 1/200sec | ƒ9 | ISO 64An Electronic Viewfinder So Good, You’ll Almost Forget It’s Not Optical

One of the biggest things to consider when looking at mirrorless cameras is the Electronic Viewfinder (EVF). The lack of an optical prism and mirror within the camera body is the defining difference between Mirrorless and SLR cameras. Until now, the electronic viewfinder found on most mirrorless cameras has been our biggest turnoff. The problem is that most of them just don’t come close to the dynamic range that an optical viewfinder can display. This leaves underwater photographers to struggle when composing shots because you just can't see what's going on in the often underexposed foreground and overexposed background.

Actual shot of the in-viewfinder electronic image, which has a sharp resolution and good dynamic range.As soon as the Nikon Z7 was in a housing and under the surface, the new and improved electronic quality was immediately apparent. This is absolutely the best electronic viewfinder that we have put our eyes and mask up to yet. It’s so good that you’ll almost think that you’re looking through an optical viewfinder.This shot was easily composed thanks to the improved electronic viewfinder image quality. The edges of the shadowed reef could be lined up and framed properly just as if shooting with an optical viewfinder thanks to the impressive dynamic range and detail of the electronic viewfinder.Nikon Z7 | Nikon 8-15mm @ 15mm | 1/125sec | ƒ10 | ISO 100A New Perspective - Making The Most Of The Electronic Viewfinder

While it is possible to shoot only from the LCD screen and not use the electronic viewfinder at all, it is actually advantageous to use the electronic viewfinder in order to shoot as close as possible to traditional SLR style.

Using a Leica TL lens on the Panasonic S1R full-frame mirrorless camera

Using a Leica TL lens on the Panasonic S1R full-frame mirrorless camera

The new Panasonic S1 full-frame mirrorless camera with Leica L-mount is already shipping and is currently in stock in the UK.

At one of the Panasonic Lumix S events, a reader mounted a Leica TL lens (Leica Summicron-T 23mm f/2 ASPH lens) on the Panasonic S1R camera and the result was a 20MP image file. The Leica TL lens worked without a problem on the Panasonic S1R camera even though the camera did no have the final firmware.

Thanks Paul!
