The Sony Hong Kong RX1 Press Release contains an interesting MTF resolution chart. Here is it:

The lines may don’t help you much without a comparison. Here are the resolution results of the Zeiss 35mm f/2.0 Biogon ZM lens at f/2.0 aperture:

.

The RX1 lens is way better than the current ZM lens!

Sony NEX-F3 sensor tested at DxOmark. Pancake lens now for $149.

DxOmark (Click here) posted the full NEX-F3 sensor test. And as you see the performance is identical to the previous NEX-C3. This isn’t a bad news, the NEX sensors are already the best on the mirrorless market. The new Panasonic GF5 for example has an overalls core of 50 points only.

Something else. If you are a NEX camera owner you might be interested to buy the 16mm pancake lens which got a $60 price drop over the regular Amazon price. You can find them for $149 at Bigvalue (Click here). The NEX-5N got another small prcie drop and you cna get it with lens included for $479 at Amazon (it’s here on top of the ranking). And to finish there is a 2% off on all Sony cameras and lenses at Amazon (Click here).

Two Sony sensors compared (on Nikon)

The Sony 36 megapixel sensor used by the Nikon D800 (and D800E).

Peter from Nikonrumors compared the Nikon D600 (with Sony 24MP sensor) and the Nikon D800E (with Sony 36MP) sensor. I thought it would be interesting to link to it because we may have a high end FF model from Sony which sues the same 36MP sensor. TO be honest I don’t see that much difference in noise and resolution between the two cameras. Of course we have tot ake into the account thet the image form the D800E has been downsampled but I would have expected to see more detail on that crop…

P.S.: Sensorgen posted the D800 data.
