Photokina 2016 Day 1

Photokina is now underway, Panasonic made a lot announcements, mainly compacts including a 1 inch sensor compact that I am sure is going to get rebadged by Leica.

The rumoured Fuji medium format made an appearance which will be interesting.  For users wanting a small good handling medium format camera you just really had the Leica S to choose from but now we have the new Hasselblad X1D-50c and the new Fuji GFX 50S.  Its a tough to say which is best, I think the Hasselblad may just come top, and at 51 MP the Fuji is certainly a megapixel king, but the Leica S system may still hold on to second place with the selection of lens available.

Certainly with these offerings the Leica S needs upgrading soon as at £13,165 and only 37.5 MP the competition is coming.
