Fuji lover and not so Sony lover Kai from Digitalrev compared the stylish Fuji X30 versus the Sony RX100M3. The news here is that even Kai had to admit the Sony is the better camera ;)

P.S.: I am joking Kai ;)

New Zeiss 16-35mm FE review by Brian Matiash.

Brian Matiash from Photofocus (Click here) reviewed the new 16-35mm f/4.0 FE Zeiss lens:

Images produced with this lens are very sharp and consistent with minimal softness in the corners. I also didn’t notice any chromatic aberration with photos taken at locations with very high dynamic ranges…As far as I’m concerned, this is a Must-Have lens for all of the Sony A7 shooters out there.

Big 4K tests: Sony A7s outperforms the GH4!

a7s_vs_gh4Image courtesy: CameraSize.

Enrique Pacheco tested the 4K performance of the Sony A7s and the Panasonic GH4. And in terms of both dynamic range and resolution the A7s outclasses the main competitor:

The image on top shows the difference in dynamic range. Enrique writes: “Sony A7s vs Panasonic GH4 in CINE4 mode. Pro ISO 200 the difference of detail in highlights from heaven speaks for itself.
And this is the resolution comparison: “Compared to the Lumix GH4, which has always been known camera with good resolution, the Sony A7s seems to deliver a clearer, sharper picture, you could say that with increased microcontraste or acutance if you’re like us, having grown up with analogue. But we must also note that although the image appear sharper the A7s, actually both seem to achieve the same level of detail.
And Enriques further test also show the A7s has less moiré and less color aliasing. The GH4 advantage is far less rolling shutter (not tested by Enrique but seen in other comparisons) and the GH4 is cheaper and records 4K internally.

50mm Loxia vs 55mm FE and vs 50mm Leica.

Comparison by DearSusans.

We got another confirmation those Loxia lenses aren’ts just a ZM lens with E-mount. DearSusans (Click here) compared the Zeiss Loxia 50/2 with the Sony FE55/1.8 and Leica Summicron 50/2:

It’s no hard for me to admit I wasn’t expecting it to be this good and considered it to be a half-ass effort by Zeiss to cash in on an old design, much like the 7 re-editions of Star-Wars, for instance. The truth is Zeiss seem to have produced a gem. And I wish them well on the cashing-in.
