After Novoflex and Shoten, Kipon also announced new Leica lens adapters for the Nikon Z and Canon R mirrorless cameras:
The first Leica M lens adapters for the new Nikon Z and Canon EOS R full-frame mirrorless cameras are already announced. The Shoten LM-NZ lens adapter (Leica M lenses to Nikon Z-mount) is already available for sale on eBay:
Here is some additional information on the upcoming 7Artisans 28mm f/1.4 lens for Leica M-mount including technical specifications, MTF charts, lens design and new sample photos:
Phase One today introduces Capture One 11.1, a new version of the RAW converter and image editor. Additionally to some new features it now supports five more Leica cameras and another two Leica M lenses.
7Artisans published the first sample photos taken with the new 28mm f/1.4 lens for Leica M-mount - the pictures were taken on a Leica M7 camera with Fujifilm C200 film:
Leica have been creating incremental updates of their digital M cameras since the M8.2 added a sapphire crystal rear display, different framelines and a quieter shutter in 2009. Of course, there have also been many limited-edition cameras, but they haven’t normally had any technical changes.
Leica is rumored to announce a new Leica Q-P camera instead of the expected Leica Q2. I am not sure what are the exact updates compared to the original Q, but the official announcement should be soon (in a few weeks). Stay tuned.
I find it amusing when somebody claims "I'm not rumor-mongering" and then make a video called "Leica SL2 Coming in H1 2019?" - the video is based on a Photokina interview with Stephan Schulz from Leica who confirmed that a new SL model should be expected in the next few months:
Back in June I already reported that the next 7Artisans lens for Leica M-mount will be wide angle. I just received the first prototype picture of the upcoming 7Artisans 28mm f/1.4 lens (it will be rangefinder coupled). The official announcement is expected by the end of the year.
The PCH Pro Shop published several pictures of the new Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.2 Aspherical VM lens mounted on the new Leica M10-P camera:
