Canon EOS R and Nikon Z are getting the first third-party lenses. Chinese company Kipon is releasing ELEGANT, a line-up of five prime lenses for both Nikon’s and Canon’s full-frame mirrorless cameras.
According to Photorumors, Tamron will be releasing a 28-75mm. f/2.8 Di III RXD lens on April 27th. The company hasn’t mentioned anything about how much it’s going to cost yet. However, Sonyaddict reported in March that the pre-sale price listed in China was Y5,300.00 (about $840) on Taobao.com. If that value is accurate, it’s going to be $1,349 cheaper than Sony’s very own 24-70mm.

According to the owner, his camera is running firmware version 1.3.3, which does not appear on Canon’s website and is not supported by Magic Lantern. It is also worth mentioning that the user states he was unable to downgrade the firmware to an earlier version that is supported by the third-party software.
Assuming this is true, is it simply an updated firmware version that hasn’t made its way to Canon’s support website and the Magic Lantern team, or is Canon aiming to cripple your camera?
