The eccentric Japanese Lens designer Mr. Miyazaki just released the new MS-Optical Perar 21 mm f/4,5 MC Super Wide Triplet lens. And the extraordinary thing of the lens is that it is only 5,2mm thick and weights 42g! It’s smaller than the M to E-mount adapter you will have to use on your E-mount camera. This makes it likely the smallest and lightest third-party Full Frame(!) lens you can use on your A7 cameras. Instead of using a cap on your camera you can simply put that lens on it and the camera will be always “ready” for a quick shot.

The video on top has been shoot by Jamie Unwin with the great help from Sony UK. I am glad to hear that Sony sponsors that kind of projects. That iw what Jamie told me:
“I’m an advocate for Sony UK, my latest film about The Illegal WIldlife Trade in Malawi, Africa has just been released. This year Malawi stands up to wildlife crime, I spent my Christmas producing a short 8 minute film that was shown to the President of Malawi, Peter Mutharika the film was then aired on national TV in Malawi. As a result the president has decided to burn the entirety of Malawi’s Ivory stock piles as a clear signal to the world that Malawi is serious about protecting its wildlife. The film worked as a persuasive and deterrent conservation tool, to show the people of Malawi that if they protect their wildlife and natural places it will benefit them economically by attracting tourism, creating a spiral of economic benefits. The film also exposed that Malawi is taking wildlife crime seriously, enforcing prison sentences to those who commit the crimes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NlYpgyzUl6E We know you have a big media following and as we are trying to reach as many people as possible it would be incredibly beneficial if you would share the film for us. www.JamieUnwin.com Sony provided all the equipment to make the film. it was entirely shot on using the Sony a77mk2 and a99. Many thanks, Jamie Unwin”

I shot over 900 pics on day 2 of the 2nd test between England and Pakistan last weekend and have just finished the web page. http://www.rtfract.com/engpak.htm I used the Sony A6300 and the 18-200 zoom for all the images. The high image rate is mainly due to using the high coninuous shooting mode sometimes. Shame […]

Hi, I'm willing to buy the Samyang 85mm F1.4 since I've read it's a wonderful lens, the only doubt I have about it is if I'll be able to easily and correctly focus my subject without AF. I know I'll get used to it after some time but I'd like to know if the camera […]
