Say goodby to the “old” CCD sensor tech. Sony now officially switched all their effort on CMOS sensor development and production only. The news comes via Allied Vision:
“Many in the industry had expected this to happen sooner or later. As you know, CMOS sensors have become more and more popular in the last couple of years. With greatly improved image quality, sensitivity, dynamic range and speeds, they have outpaced CCD technology of late. Sony’s decision is a logical step in that context to provide further capacity for CMOS growth.”
If you want to know how Sony describes the Sony QX concept you can read their full patent here: freepatentsonline.com/8947589.pdf. A small curiosity: They also have the idea to make a square QX camera (image on top).
How can you make money by offering…nothing more than just a different name? Well it appears(?) the Germany company Meyer-Optik-Görlitz just did it. It really looks like they took the Chinese Zy Optics f/0.95 lenses added their logo on it and sells them for triple the price!
I hope I am mistaken here and the German company did some kind of “tweaks” or redesign. But so far I believe those are almost exact (or completely exact) copies from the ZY optics lenses . Same weight, same close focus distance, same diaphragm blades…don’t want to get sued by their lawyer so please correct me if I am wrong with my “Pure speculation”
Bernard: “A new test has been added for the Sony A6000 with a Rokinon 7.5mm lens. For over a year, people visit the site to compare different possible combinations of cameras and lenses for panoramic photography. The addition of the Sony A6000 complements the range presented on the site. A modification was done on the Sony A6000. Improve the standard Sony E-mount with the Fotodiox TOUGH E-Mount. This all-metal mount replaces the two-part mount that comes with most Sony E-mount cameras. Of those two parts, the actual mount that holds the lens is made of plastic, which is susceptible to wear and lens movement. By removing four screws, taking out the two mount parts, and inserting the TOUGH E-Mount, you give your camera a stronger and more durable lens connection. Of all sets that have been tested by quebecpanorama, the Sony A6000 with Rokinon 7.5mm lens is the one that offers the best value for money. The impressive quality, coupled with the ease of transportation, seduced us, so it became the official QuébecPanorama set. http://quebecpanorama.com/en/kits/view/rokinon-7.5mm-for-sony-sony-a6000“

I would be surprised to hear that’s a mistake made by them. I really do hope this means all four new FE lenses will ship from March 13.
I have an a7 and notice with every lens I mount on it, (all Sony) there's this bit of "play" after the lens clicks into the body after mounting it. It's just enough to be noticeable when mounting or removing a lens hood or filter. Is this normal and there for a reason, or do […]
Hey! I just bought the Sony a6000, and I’m Looking for a lens to Landscape Photography (already have the kit lens). I’ll be glad if there is any recommendations of lens like that. The two main lenses I think about is the Sony 18-200m and the Sony 55-210mm.My dilemma is whether the 18-200 lens provides […]
This morning I did a fairly comprehensive test of my new a5100 with both the kit lens (16-55), and the fixed lens (20mm) I bought along with the camera kit. I learned a number of things (including that the 20mm was not an OSS lens), but what concerned me most is that the kit […]
I thought it would be great to have a show and tell. Show us your pictures from the a6000 and tell us your story moving to A6000. I am a Canon shooter from way back. I wanted a smaller kit and 4/3 was to small, still wanted Bokeh. Since Sony is innovating I am […]
