The camera that everyone was playing with was the NX1, and we took a look at that as well as a 300mm telephoto prime concept. Read on.

Leica has announced a new X-series camera with an F1.7 lens. The Leica X (Typ 113) continues to use a 16MP APS-C sensor and offer a 35mm equivalent lens but now with a considerably faster aperture than the F2.8 of its forebear.

We swung by Nikon's Photokina 2014 stand to see the new D750 in action and investigate what else the company has in store for show attendees.
