New Cameras and Lenses of 2017

2017 is here, and with CES literally bringing in the new year [see Trade Show Calendar] the wave of new cameras is beginning to roll. This year we bring back the “Scoreboard” tally. Please note this is a reference page, not a “breaking news” tracker, so it won’t necessarily be updated the millisecond a new camera comes out. We are out of the “news cycle” after all.
