Sony A77 reviews roundup and in Stock status (+ new Sigma 150mm lens)

Occupy Wall Street Protests and Arrests from Steve Turnham on Vimeo.

Time to make a new A77 recap!

Buy-n-Shoot (Click here) wrote a short A77 review. It earns the Platinum award…this means it doesn’t get any better! The reviewer says: “No matter which way you look at this camera it takes the cake!
Our friend Mike Kobal (Click here) is spending his time in the slum of Kibera (Nairobi) and is using the A77 for his work: “My first time in Africa and I am totally blown away by what I have seen so far. I am pleased to let you know, so far, the A77hasn’t let me down in this hot and dusty environment (approx 3K shots). I will try to update this post, however internet access is limited and very slow.

NEX is the best choice (Dpreview). Plus new NEX-5n reviews.

DPReview (Click here) posted a mirrorless cameras roundup. And for each category you can see that NEX cameras are having the highest scores:
Highest score beginner mirroless camera: Sony NEX C3 (Price check: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay)
Highest score intermediate camera: SONY NEX 5n (Price check: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay)
Highest score advanced camera: SONY NEX 7 (Price check: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay)

DigitalPhotographySchool (Click here) posted the full NEX-5n review: “Image quality is superbly sharp and fully colour saturated. But attaching the lens make the combo a largish proposition.
I was also a little startled to see the PDF manual erroneously claim the CMOS sensor carried 14.2 megapixels, when it actually has a 16.1 million pixel population. Makes a reviewer’s life tough!“.

Craig: “I was wondering if you’d be interested in viewing and possibly sharing a gallery of images shot with my Sony NEX 5N with a Voigtlander Color-Skopar 21mm f/4 Pancake lens to help your readers ‘see’ what this wonderful camera and lens can do in ALL KINDS of situations. I’ve owned the camera and lens now for just under two months.
You can see the gallery on my website here:

Metthew Belcher (Click here) posted a Zeiss 24mm DOF test made with the NEX-5n.

The black Sony NEX-5 with 18-55mm kit lens sells for $499 only at Amazon (Click here). And I noticed that the camera is the most sold camera for a very long time now at Amazon (Click here to see the ranking).

NEX-7 news roundup + new madness auctions + watch out BHphoto!

Luminous Landscape (Click here) made a new real world comparison between the Leica M9 and Sony NEX-7: “The cameras are very close, but there is a slight advantage to the Sony, almost certainly due to it having a higher resolution sensor.”

Peter Sills (Click here) wrote the “10 Firmware Update Suggestions for the NEX-7“.

Photographytalk (Click here) listed the “10 Surprises of the Sony NEX-7 Camera That Will Cause Serious Photographers To Look Twice“.

DCresource (Click here) posted a RAW versus JPEG comparison. RAW image do look quite good!

Menawhile the ebay madness continues. There are two new NEX-7 auctions on eBay US (Click here and Click here). Yesterday the NEX-7 has been sold for $3.761,00 (Click here to see)!!! And used NEX-7 cameras are worth $3.200 on Amazon too (Click here).

Sony USA accepting NEX-7 orders! Review conclusions from LL.

You can now buy your NEX-7 body only at SonyStore USA (Click here). UPDATE. No more preorders yet! It will be shipped to you in mid-late January. I have been told that also other Sonystores in Europe will soon ship their first NEX-7 cameras and accept new preorders. And curiously, this will only happen with the body only version. The full kit will not be available until late February! And the first NEX-7 on ebay sold for $3.245,00 (Click here to see it)!!! Yeah, and that’s body only :)
Luminous Landscapes published their final NEX-7 verdict (Click here) and the following statement explains why people pays that crazy price for a NEX-7: “I’ll start this conclusion chapter with my bottom line summary. The NEX-7 is the most exciting camera that I’ve had the pleasure of using in the past five years.

Full NEX-7 preorders list.These are all search links. Some stores may not have the NEX-7 for preorder at all: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
