First Cine 35mm T/0.95 test on the NEX-7 and VG900 (3Dkraft).

Share

3Dkraft (Click here) tested the new HyperPrime CINE 35mm T0.95 prototype lens on the NEX-7 and on the first Full Frame VG900. This Cine lens for E-mount should arrive in 2013. The tester published some image samples an the results are promising. It’s interesting to see that lens on the VG900. Of course there is a lot of vignetting to see. I hope Sony and other third party lens manufacturer are thinking on making native FF E-mount lenses!

List to current SLRmagic lenses for NEX:
SLR Magic 35mm f/1.7 MC (here on eBay).
SLR Magic Toy Lens 28mm Bokehmorphic lens (here on eBay).
SLR Magic HyperPrime 50mm f/0.95 (here on eBay).
SLR Magic 28mm f/2.8 lens (here on eBay).

New Sony 24 MP sensor gets DxOmarked (via D600 test).

The D600 score by DxOmark (Click here)

May not everybody knows it but the new Sony 24 Megapixel Full Frame sensor is used not only by Sony (A99RX1 and VG900) but also by the Nikon D600 (in stock today). And DxOmark (Click here) already posted the results of the D600 sensor test. The results are impressive. Compared with the Canon 5DmarkIII the Sony sensor has an image dynamic that is nearly 2.5-stops better! And a 2/3-stop advantage in color quality too!

This means that 1) Canon should be worried 2) We can expect similar extraordinary results on the A99RX1 and VG900. Particularly the superb RX1 (specs and price here) may surpass the Nikon D600 score due the excellent Zeiss lens. I hope it can dethrone the D600 as leader of the Amazon ranks (here to see).

Sony roundup…(Minolta cameras, VG900, Nex-5r, A99)

I have to catch up with some news I didn’t post in these busy Photokina days.

1) I got a news from a long time SonyAlphaRumors reader. He is selling his complete collection of Maxxum 900, 9xi an 9 cameras in excellent conditions on eBay (Click here). it’s worth to check it out for the tons of nice pictures you can see!
2) Four new VG900 videos: one, two, three and four.
3) Sony’s NEX-5R WiFi: Hands On With the Viewfinder Feature at Pcworld.
4) At a live event at CamerDiner Paul Genge said the Sony A99 can do uncompressed 4:4:4 Hdmi out signal. It really would surprise me if tat would be the Chroma sampling quality! Hope some of you guys can give me some more info about that.
5) Many testing videos on Mobile01.
6) RX1 at Quesabesde.
7) New Lensmate Sony RX100 Quick Change filter adapter.
8) Sony 18-135mm SAM f/3.5-5.6 Review at Photographic Central.
9) A Sony image stabilization test at Heise.

Editor’s note: In these busy weeks I got many mails and news from you and most of them never got an answer. The next days I will take the necessary time to answer you all! Thanks for your patience :)
