New Zeiss Loxia image samples and MTF comparison with ZM lenses.

Reminder: The worldwide first Zeiss Loxia Full Frame E-mount lens preorder are now running at BHphoto:
Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Biogon T* Lens for Sony E Mount (Click here).
Zeiss Loxia 50mm f/2 Planar T* Lens for Sony E Mount (Click here)

Cinema5D had the new Loxia lenses in their hands and posted some image samples within their short preview.

For me, the two Loxias were the last missing pieces to make the A7s a perfect “go-anywhere-with-me” camera. They are built as nicely as the camera itself (metal housing) and the full package feels very much like a much more expensive Leica rangefinder camera. The nicest touch about the lenses is their very small size (apart from their built quality) – and I think that was the priority when they were designed. Typically for Zeiss, the lenses are extremely sharp and have hardly any noticeable distortion or vignetting (which can’t be said about all 50mm photo lenses on the market – I used the Canon f/1.4 50mm on the A7s before and while the image is very nice, the lens vignettes heavily when shooting wide open).

And the Korean site Dicahub compared the lens performance of the new Loxia with those of their “original” the Biogon T* 2/35 ZM (here on eBay) and the Planar T* 2/50 ZM (here on eBay).

Sony A5100 tested at Cinema5d and Mobile01.

Familia Gladiatoria- A Sony A5100 review from Johnnie Behiri on Vimeo.

Cinema5D (Click here) tested the video performance of the A5100. Obviously this is not what the camera was made for:

The Sony A5100 is a basic entry level large sensor camera housing some professional features. It is a nice camera for the occasional family user. I’ll be surprised if any professional will find it useful for any of their video productions as the camera, the way it is, leaves a lot to be desired.

Mobile01 (Click here) posted many sexy images of the camera. And many image/video samples and ISO tests. Check it out even if you don’t can’t understand the text!

New A5100 gets tested at Cinema5D. Shows impressive dynamic range and beats the 5dmarkIII.

Image courtesy: Cinema5D

The newly announced Sony A5100 got lab-tested by the Cinema5D team. As you can see from the graph on top the dynamic range is impressive for an APS-C camera:

In terms of dynamic range the Sony A5100 surprises with the measured results and beats most other important cameras we tested, even more expensive ones. As mentioned above the subjective impression we have about dynamic range on the A5100 is lower than the software results and can’t compete with the Sony A7s. It also shines in rolling shutter performance. Overall it seems Sony has built its latest processing technology into this little mirrorless camera, providing good lowlight noise levels as well, which however we see nowhere close the A7s (not tested scientifically yet).

Sounds really great!

No buyers storm on the new Sony A5100 (says Amazon). New Sony A5100 tests and video roundup.


Detailed look at the Sony a5100 interchangeable lens camera (found via Nofilmschool)

While this isn’t a scientific measure I just checked the Amazon digital camera Best seller rankings (Click here) to see if the new Sony A5100 got many preorders (Amazon counts orders-preorders in that list). Well unlike the A6000 to other popular E-mount cameras the A5100 didn’t even make it into the top 100 of that list. Well this may changes if you check out that list of new reviews and videos :)

There is a short hands-on review in Thai but with plenty of great product pictures and image samples posted at Pantip.com (google translation here).
