Upcoming cameras to crave

Yeah, camera manufacturers generally announce their Fall cameras in August. But every other year the huge photo tradeshow, Photokina, making those particular seasons a little more interesting.

And this is a Photokina year.

Unfortunately, we won't be able to tell you about those cameras until after this story is published -- hence the paucity of cameras here -- but we'll update over the next couple of weeks as those cameras debut.

Pentax Q-S1

Moment lenses for mobile phones

Price: $100 each

Availability: Shipping now to backers; now in preorder.

The outlook: The first real glass lenses for phones -- compatible with iPhones, iPads, Samsung Galaxy and Google Nexus -- Moment came out of a wildly popular Kickstarter, in which it raised over $450,000 for a $50,000 goal. Right now there are two, 18mm and 60mm-equivalent, but the company hopes to produce another by the end of the year. They're kind of big and heavy, but well constructed. We look forward to testing these soon.

Nikon D750

Price: $2,300

Availability: September 2014

The outlook: A new full-frame camera with a great feature set and priced well below the D810, the Nikon D750 potentially offers a lot for photographers who want a well-equipped full frame but don't need the pristine sharpness of an OLPF-free sensor.

Fujifilm X100T

Price: $800

Availability: November 2014

The outlook: Although the insides haven't changed from the X100S, a new viewfinder with rangefinder-style focusing, built-in Wi-Fi, a better LCD and streamlined control layout pleasantly refreshes this still-great camera.
