Initial A99 review at Chromasia: “As I guess you’ve already worked out, I’m seriously impressed with the SLT-A99. The image quality is superb, it has a great range of features, and no real negatives, at least none that have any major impact on my style/type of photography. As such I have no problem recommending this camera.” And some image samples can be seen here.

Frank Doorhof: “Sony is very serious about becoming number 1″

Sony A99 from Nigel Barker on Vimeo.

Fashion photographers Nigel Baker and Frank Doorhof are using the A99 for their work. On top you can watch Nigel’s latest video. And Frank Doorhof is so excited about the A99 and writes: “Sony will be a serious player in this market, of course I cannot predict the future but when you listen to what’s gonna happen with the alpha series and when you see the quality of the A99 I think Sony is very serious about becoming number 1… now that will probably not happen over night for the simple reason that Canon and Nikon are so well known, but….. I think over time things will chance.

Sounds promising!

SAR reader Eric sent me a link to a new A99 that has a small $50 price drop. it’s sold by Electrostore eBay (Click here). I don’t know them so please read carefully their conditions. Keep in mind that if you buy it at Amazon (Click here) you will get a %2 back in reward!

VG900 and M mount lens test!

The NEX-VG900 camera and the lenses. Image courtesy David.

The day Sony announced the first Full Frame E-mount camera I had one question in my mind. How good will the sensor be for the use of M-mount lenses? SAR reader David tested some of these lenses on his brand new Sony NEX-VG900. It’s too early to draw any conclusion but for the first time we can see many image samples:
Here is the list of tested lenses:
1) Leica APO-Summicron 75mm (image here, lens on eBay here).
2) Leica Summilux 35mm (image here, lens on eBay here).
3) Zeiss Biogon 28mm (image here, lens on eBay here).
4) Leica Super Elmar 21mm (image here, lens on eBay here).
5) Voiglaender Heliar 15mm (image here, lens on eBay here).

Experts on SAR may tell me what they think when viewing these images. And I hope someone can do an appropriate review soon. Would like to know if there are issues or flaws using these lenses with adapters on my future NEX-9….if Sony will ever make it for me :)

Thanks David!!! Follow his Flickr stream.

VG900 store status check at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.

There is also a test at MFlenses with the Nokton 35mmf /1.2 lens.

A first great video shot with the RX1!


Just watch! Looks good or not? And if you want to see how the RX1 compares against the best Nikon FF cameras watch out that first test on dpreview forum. While this may not be a 100% professional test I have some high expectations on the RX1 now. Hope to see some review soon!
