New Sony A7rII test video with Canon glass.

Share

Lucas Kurt posted that Sony A7rII autofocus test video with the Canon 40mm STM lens.

And Patrick Murphy-Racey posted an Open Letter to Sports Shooters and Photojournalists about the Sony A7RII:

People considering buying a 5DS/R might be advised to think hard about the Sony A7RII as an alternative, especially when you consider that Sony makes the sensor in the 5DS anyways. The future is now and it’s going to cost you $3198. It might be time to surface the Nautilus

First Mitakon 85mm f/1.2 FE lens tests.

Speedmaster85mm

The Japanese site DC.watch (google translation here) tested the lens on the A7. They are impressed by the image quality and you can see many nice image samples on their site. The first english review has been written by Darkshape (Click here):

Optical properties at f/1.2 are just breathtaking. Chromatic aberrations only appear at really contrastive parts of the photo (classic branch-in-the-sky case) and the sharpness is just crazy. I feel like the lens designers have been paying a lot of attention to those new 30, 40 and 50-something-megapixel cameras. In case of this lens though I decided to stop down a bit for some of the photos as it helped edge of the frame sharpness considerably. The centre sharpness is very very good across the apertures.
The bokeh is impressive. It’s very smooth for the most part and outstanding sources or light are nicely eye-shaped if they are off-centre. (As many as 11 aperture blades contribute greatly to that). The DoF is paper thin at times and your slightest move can ruin your focus so it’s important to have that in mind. Breathe in and

The E-mount Mitakon 85mm f/1.2 lens can be ordered at BHphoto (Click here) and Asian eBays sellers.

It’s a pricey lens, but right now it’s the only E-mount option that works out-of-the-box for macro photography. It might be expensive, but you get an exceptionally sharp lens with some great features – certainly, worth the investment.

Round Planet (Source: AlphaDXD) sent me this pic: “Just received my brand new Sony 90mm F2.8 in France; a couple of photos and initial feelings on this link: http://www.alphadxd.fr/viewtopic.php?f=158&t=101471

Robbert:Today I got the new Sony 90mm f2.8 macro. Some shots are on my flickr account: https://www.flickr.com/photos/robbertvw/

Mars:I was very fortunate to be able to shoot with the new 90mm macro lens tonight.  It’s very sharp, and renders beautifully. It’s also much lighter than it looks. All-in-all a beautiful piece of glass! Some images can be found at my blog site: https://marsweekly.wordpress.com/ (all are portraits shot wide-open with the 90mm and a few other lenses)

Discussion: Sony 90mm Macro, or Zeiss 85 Batis, which will you be more likely to get? On SonyAlphaForum.
