Serious A7s long exposure test shows hot spots (with NR off).

SAR reader Eric Lo shared this A7s long exposure test. It shows the many hot spots you can see if you switch off the Long exposure NR reduction. We don’t know the reason why you have much more of them compared to the A7r. Anyway, the good news is that with Long Exposure NR on things look pretty good.

Sony A7s gets almost rid of the corner issues with wide angle lenses!

The A7s is finally set to ship tomorrow via  Sony USA, and Sony Canada and aftertomorrow at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto. And there is also a good news for wide angle shooters:

Our reader Tamrong sent us this A7r vs A7s wide angle comparison via Facebook. It has been taken with the Voigtlander 15mm lens (here on eBay). Like you see the A7s corner performance with such critical wide angle lenses is much improved!

Sigma 50mm ART lens gets another thumbs up from Photozone!

Our long time colleague Klaus from Photozone tested the 50mm Sigma ART lens (FF Canon mount version). And he says it’s:

better than all the other 50mm lenses that we have tested to date. The new (untested) Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 may still be better, especially regarding bokeh fringing, but it’s a manual focus lens and in terms of size, weight and astronomical price tag it just cannot be everybody’s darling anyway.

This is really a must have lens for all A-mount camera owners! Just like the 55mm FE Zeiss is a must have for E-mount guys!

The A-mount lens can be preordered in USA Amazon (Click here) at BHphoto (Click here) and Adorama (Click here). And in Europe at WexUK (Click here) and WexDe (Click here).
