Nikon is working on a telephoto zoom lens for its full-frame F-mount DSLRs: the AF-S Nikkor 120-300mm F2.8E FL ED SR VR. From those acronyms we can safely say that it will be stabilized and have ED and fluorite elements, though ‘SR’ is a new one. We think it’s safe to say that this lens will be rugged and sealed against moisture and dust.
From the photo above you can spot the usual set of switches for a pro-level lens: AF/MF, focus distance limiter, VR mode, memory recall/AF-L/AF-On and focus beep.
Nikon promises more information and pricing on this sports-oriented lens later this year.

The EOS M6 Mark II renews Canon’s commitment to making small, enthusiast-friendly APS-C mirrorless cameras. With 4K video, 30 fps Raw bursts and additional controls, it’s a big step forward from its predecessor. And perhaps more interesting than the EOS 90D.
The 90D is essentially the DSLR version of the EOS M6 Mark II mirrorless camera that was introduced alongside it. Like the M6 II, it features a 32MP sensor, Dual Pixel AF, fast burst shooting and 4K/30p video capture. It will be available mid-September.
The S1H is a full frame mirrorless camera designed with videographers in mind and includes advanced features like 6K video capture, 4:2:2 10-bit internal recording, improved video scopes, high frame rate recording, Panasonic Varicam color science and more.
