The Spanish site DSLRmagazine asked Tamron if they plan to make lenses for the Sony A7 system. But the official answer was: “Currently we have no intention to cover this line of business, although we have a very good relationship with that particular brand.“
He also confirmed the new 15-30mm Sp lens can resolve the new 50 megapixel FF sensors. This fits with a rumor I got back many months ago. That source gave me the lens specs as first and also told me Sony would make a close to 50MP FF camera too. Question now is only WHEN that camera will be announced to fight back the Canon 5ds.
Mirrorless system camera market share in 2014 (Japan only)
BCNranking published the full 2014 camera sales date in Japan. The good news is that Sony dethroned Olympus and is now number one in the mirrorless system camera market in Japan. And in Japan mirrorless is very strong and on par with DSLR in terms of cameras sales. The (unsurprisingly) bad news is that Sony really holds no more any meaningful share of the DSLR market:

Sony really needs to reinvent the wheel with their A-mount system if they want to make it successful. They would certainly have the necessary tech for that but we have to see if the management really wants that.
Hikari: “I have a website where I interview actors, directors, & athletes. I’m not sure if you would be interested in this type of news but I just shot & edited an interview with actor Thomas Jane (“The Punisher”, “”Deep Blue Sea”, “Boogie Nights”, “61*” & HBO’s “Hung”). The main camera used in the shoot was the RX100M3 in XAVC-S codec (1080p 24fps 50mb/sec) & the side angle was shot with the a99 Zeiss 24-70mm (AVCHD 1080p 24fps 24mb/sec), & edited & rendered in Sony Vegas Pro 13 in the XAVC 1080p 24fps setting. I have worked very closely with Sony Alpha Cameras & even longer with Sony Creative Software. The footages were shot extremely flat then color graded in Genarts Sapphire 8 Film Style (main camera) & the side camera graded in BCC9 Film Process (the camera on me was a Nikon D5200 which I have since got rid of. The flat profile produced colors that were completely different from the Sony cameras & sometimes flickered with the LED lights). hikaritakano.co/index.php/video-interviews/thomas-jane”
Elmar: “I am a photographer and im using Sony cameras A7 / 7s / 7r / 7MII and Nex-7 my focus is underwater photography as well as landscape, events, sports, and so on. I m using Nauticam underwater housing, inon strobes, ports and more equipment from Nauticam. All fotos taken with cameras from above: http://www.blueworldpixel.com/“
I'll begin by stating that I'm not a wedding photography by trade. I shoot mostly commercial lifestyle and product professionally and landscape for fun. I've shot a good few event style jobs with Sony and back when I had Nikon, but this was the first wedding shoot on the Sony system. It was […]
I encountered two problems with my a6000, and didn't find specific solutions to either here. I wrote up the solutions I did finally work out here: http://www.telirati.com/2016/05/telirati-tips-1-sony-raw-noise-and.html The bricking problem was particularly scary. I thought I had a doorstop. Considering how easy it is to do, I'm surprised Sony doesn't have a returned merchandise problem […]
I have a spare replacement foot (Shoe assemby A1913790B) for the Sony flash HVL-F60M, if anyone wants it. I didn't even realise I still had one but, as I no longer have the gun, don't need it anymore. By all means let me know and I'll send it to you. Please be patient if […]
Today i want to show you my results from yesterdays portrait and streetshoot with the new little FE50 1.8 + Sony A7II. Check out my experience using the Face Detect + Eye AF. I will update this post a lot in the next days http://www.dsphotoblog.com/?p=1405 #photography
Just got an A6000. Been looking for a case (similar to gopro) that I can have my camera and a lens with accessories in it and put inside my backpack when travelling. So far now real luck. Does anyone have or know of any good solutions?
