With today’s development announcement at Photokina of the ZX1, Zeiss has officially entered the (getting to be very crowded) full-frame mirrorless camera market segment.

By eliminating the deeper grip, top mounted LCD screen and hump on the back of the 50S, Fujifilm has been able to reduce the overall…
