DXOMark: Canon EOS-1D X Mark II - New Class Leader Jun 29, 2016
DXOMark: Canon EOS-1D X Mark II - New Class Leader
DXOMark just posted their sensor review and lab tests for the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II

"The Canon performs exceptionally well. Not only does it have a wider useful dynamic range at base and low ISOs than the Nikon, itís not far behind the Sony, and that small difference wonít be noticed in use. The Canon sensor continues to offer a wide dynamic range at every ISO setting, improving on the Sony from ISO800 onwards, and falling only slightly behind the Nikonís strong performance from ISO6400 onwards. Indeed, the difference at most is around +0.6EV. Canon cameras are known for high ISO noise performance, and the Mark II surpasses both the Nikon and Sony by nearly +0.5EV."

Sony FE 16-35/4 & FE 24-70/4 MTF and Variance Test Jun 22, 2016
Sony FE 16-35/4 & FE 24-70/4 MTF and Variance Test
Roger Cicala at LensRentals.com tested two of Sony's most used zooms: FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS and the FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS. The MTF results were not surprising for those who have used these lenses but it's interesting to see a direct comparison to zooms offered by Canon and Nikon. Variance was very similar for all lenses tested.

Here is an excerpt:

"Overall weíd have to say the Sony has the best MTF at the 16mm, particularly at higher frequencies, while the Canon is a bit better at 35mm. The Nikon is at its best at 16mm but doesnít hold up quite as well at longer zoom ranges. The Sony, as all Sony shooters have come to expect, is more expensive than the other two, although not hugely more. In this case, though, itís at least as good, and in some areas better, than the others. Itís a really good lens."

Official: Hasselblad X1D-50c Medium Format Mirrorless
The new Hasselblad X1D-50c was officially announced today. It's the first mirrorless medium format camera ever produced and boosts Sony's 50MP sensor (33x44mm). The X1D weights only 725g and it's smaller than most 35mm SLR bodies. The high res touch screen controls most camera functions, and the electronic viewfinder (EVF) boosts a 2.4MP resolution.
Images will benefit from 14 stops of dynamic range and full 16-bit color depth. Thanks to the use of Leaf Shutter lenses, flash synchronization works with its full shutter speed range up to 1/2000s. It has dual SD Card Slots; XPan/Square Modes, WI-FI, GPS and it's compatible with Hassy HC and HCD lenses through an optional adapter.
Pre-order: B&H Photo | Adorama

Also announced are two 2 XCD Leaf Shutter lenses:

Hasselblad XCD 45mm f/3.5 Lens (35/2.8 full frame equivalent)

DXO Sensor Review: Canon EOS 80D Jun 15, 2016
DXO Sensor Review: Canon EOS 80D
DXOMark just posted their sensor review and lab tests for the Canon EOS 80D

"The Canon EOS 80D has improved low ISO noise and a more useful dynamic range at and close to base ISO over its siblings. However, class-leading sensors such as those found in the Sony a6300 and the Nikon D7200 still have more usable dynamic ranges, and thatís not just at base, but at high ISOs as well."
