Vladislav:I shoot with sony (I’m a wildlife photographer) and I hate it with a new body comes out and all reviews are for portretry and general specs reviews, but nobody talks about how capable the camera for wildlife is. My channel just uploaded one review, that does exactly that, for the other wildlifers shooting with sony out there and I think there might be plenty of your readers interested in what I have to say. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9oTZ_sNgRc

Javier:I am one of those lucky enough to have the new Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f / 4G OSS, this video is made with the Sony A7s and Shogun atoms , there are also recorded with drone planes. I leave a picture of recording equipment. Is made in the Sierra Nevada National Park: https://vimeo.com/120843778

this image shows how the length changes when rotating the adapter.

With that kind of adapter it is possible to shorten the minimum focus distance of M-mount lenses just like the more expensive Voigtlander VM-E close focus adapter. The Shoten adapter costs $199 and is for sale on eBay (Click here).

Sony Q3/2014 financial results: Sells less cameras but makes more money.

Bildschirmfoto 2015-03-22 um 08.31.05

First of all let’s start with a good news: Sony is back to profit and is slowly recovering from the deep crisis they went into the last years. Good to know we don’t have to fear anymore that Sony will go bankruptcy :) The full financial report can be downloaded here: sony.net/SonyInfo/IR/financial/fr/14q3_sonypre.pdf

The second news is that while Sony sold less cameras it managed to increase the profit. This is mainly due the fact that Sony is selling much less unprofitable fixed lens small sensor compacts and is focusing on more enthusiast and high-end stuff like RX cameras and E-mount mirrorless. But there is still a lot to do from Sony to growth in terms of market share and customer confidence. How about making a roadmap for A-mount and APS-C E-mount products? About time to give those camera owners something to look forward too!
