Sony A6300 and GM lens video preview by TheCameraStoreTV: “Sony is finally getting into professional territory”

Sony made the mistake to invite the crazy Canadian Chris&Jordan team. Now you have to watch those 19min long video :)

Chris favorite lens is the 85mm f/1.4 GM lens. But the best news he took from the Sony presentation is that Sony is listening to its customers and they are getting in the professional territory. It’s one “less excuse” to keep a Nikon or a Canon.

Sony’s new FE GM lenses “could be” the best of the world (thoughts by Jason Lanier)

24-70mm

24-70mm GM vs 24-70mm EF and 24-70mm G (CameraSize).

Yesterday Sony stated the new G Master lenses do have a world-class leading spatial frequency at 50 lines per mm. Canon-Nikon lenses are somewhere between 10 and 30lpmm while the best Zeiss lenses do scratch the 40lpmm mark. That’s why the new GM lenses are as big as the DSLR competition (See comparison on top). It is very clear that Sony will soon launch very High resolution cameras. Probably with 100+ Megapixels. We need to test this lenses before to be sure of that claim: That those Sony lenses are the best FF lenses on the market yet! Jason Lanier explains why this matters:

And here are Hugh Brownstone thoughts:

The new FE GM size comparison on the A7rII.

FE_GM

Thanks to Camerasize you can get a clear idea of the lens size on your Sony A7rII (or any other E-mount camera you own). The lenses are big yes…and probably better suited for a larger A9 body (that would be nice Sony!).
