While Sony seems to focus on the new FE lens launch other companies are throwing out their camera announcements. And there are some interesting news here:
The big FFs from Pentax:
Pentax announced that they will release their first digital Full Frame DSLR by end of 2015. As you know Pentax use Sony sensors on their APS-C DSLR so I guess it’s highly likely Pentax will use the new 46-50MP Sony FF sensor on that camera too! P.S.: The full Canon 50MP camera specs are out at CanonWatch.
Two news from Olympus:
The launched the new Air Clip (43rumors.com) that works just like the Sony QX1!
Their new E-M5II camera has a multishot trick to take 40 Megapixel images (43rumors.com). It uses the on sensor stabilization system to shift the sensor to take 8 shots in different position. I guess Sony could do the same on the A7II!
Samsung launched the 4K APS-C NX500 (mirrorlessrumors.com). Something Sony should do soon too…launch a cheaper 4K camera.
Sony Japan just published their official CP+ Sony event page (Click here). And it shows all the upcoming new FE lenses and converters in their final production version. There is also a text in Japanese:
The whole page shows the list of conferences and promotes all latest products like the A7II, A7s, A6000 and even (at last) A-mount (A77II).
There is no hint whatsoever for a possible new camera launch. As I told you previously it’s very likely Sony may announce new cameras few weeks AFTER the CP+.
The rumored lens price and launch date is: Zeiss 35mm f/1.4: to ship in March 2015. 1399 Euro? Sony 28mm f/2.0: to ship in February 2015. 499 Euro? 90mm f/2.8 G OSS macro: to ship in March 2015. 999 Euro? 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS: to ship in March 2015. 1099 Euro? converters for 229 Euro each?
Eliot: “Longtime reader here! Wanted to share a short video my team and I shot on two of our lovely A7s bodies. My company, Parlor (weareparlor.com), focuses mainly on documentary-style productions for non-profits, small brands, restaurants, and artists. This project, for the United Coalition of Motor Club Safety, was perfect for the a7s. We had to travel light, fit in tight spaces, shoot in all kinds of weather, and most importantly- get beautiful, sharp, vibrant images. I’m really proud of the result- it just went live today – and I would love if you could share it with fellow readers. I think it does a great job of showcasing the amazing potential of the a7s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BEt-fRhVts We captured all media internally (unfortunately our Shogun arrived two weeks too late). Clips were recorded in S-Log2, then edited and graded in FCPX. We used Metabones adapters, both the speedster and smart adapter, to shoot with a small handful of lenses including the Tamron 24-70, Canon 100L, and Canon 20. The APS-C crop really opened up a world of potential with these guys- essentially doubling our available glass.”
Hi all: Brand new to the forum! I am a pretty good photographer and have been using a Sony a55 for a while. It's been nice buying Minolta lenses, and the Zeiss lenses I've been fortunate to use are incredible. I have been wanting to upgrade my body though. I really […]
