    Until now I was in one press conference after the other. So what is important for Medium Format?

    Leica announced the Leica S3. 64MP, 3fps., Video full sensor size in Full HD and 4K!

    Expected in spring 2019

    additionally they announced their own App to communicate with their cameras. Very impressive!

    The also announced the oartnershio with Sigma and Oanasonic for the L moint mirrorlesss fullframe. But this might be less interesting for MF users.

    If you want to hear/ see more about that L mount, just comment here in this thread..

    The star if the show was the Fuji press conference. They announced so many products, that it was hard to keep up.

    In short
    XT3

    GFX 50R rangefindee style camera. 145g less weight and thinner than the 50s. Finally the body I was hoping for/ expected last photokina.

    I would love to bring some positive news about Hasselblad. But it seems difficult at the moment.

    As promised, I tried to get an interview with the CEO Paul Bram at Photokina and ask some.of your questions. But unfortunately he is not the CEO anymore.

    I will try to find out, how the new responsabilities are now within Hasselblad and will then report back...
