Dutch store is already accepting A77 preorders (should be a mistake)

A dutch store (Dewinkel.nl) probably made a mistake and published the Sony A77 preorder options 10 days before the real announcement! I am NOT sure the price are correct (I am almost certain it will be cheaper!!!).

Those are the specs published by the dutch website and it looks like they copied it from my website because they used the exact same words!!!

  • 19 points AF sensor with 11 cross sensors
  • ISO 100-16000, with expandeable ISO 50 option

  • P/A/S/M manual controls while recording video
  • 1200 zone metering
  • Completely new developed Bionz processor
  • 12 fps
  • 1/8000 shutter speed
  • TrueBlack 921k 3-way tilt LCD

  • Built-in flash

(SR5) First rendering of the upcoming LA-EA2 adapter with built-in translucent mirror.

On top you can see the very first (real!) design of the new LA-EA2 adapter with built-in translucent mirror! As you see the adapter is quite BIG. It allows the use of the phase detecion autofocus with 15 AF points! As I already told you weeks ago the adapter will cost around $400. My guess is that the adapter is partiularly welcome by filmmakers that want to use the Alpha mount lenses on the NEX-FS100 and other future E-mount camcorders.

The current LA-EA1 adapter is much cheaper (around $150) but autofocus is slow. Check the price and specs of the LA-EA1 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.

Samyang next lens will be an amazing 24mm f/1.4!


While we are all waiting for Sony and Zeiss to release new high quality lenses Samyang is not resting at all. After releasing that 35mm f/1.4 super quality and super cheap manual lens they now announced first on facebook than on their website that their next lens will be the 24mm f/1.4 fast wide angle! It will have 13 elements (in 12 groups) including four ED elements and two aspheric lenses. The Samyang 24mm should be in Stock by end of this year with Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Samsung NX, Sony Alpha and Four Thirds mounts.

Those are the two current Rokinon/Samyang lenses I recommend to you:
1) The 35mm f/1.4: In US you can find it as Rokinon at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here), BHphoto (Click here) and on eBay (Click here). In Europe the name is Samyang and you can find it on eBay (Click here) and with the name Wallimex again on eBay (Click here).
2) The 85mm f/1.4: You can get for $274 on Amazon (Click here), branded with the name Rokinon on eBay (Click here) and branded with the name Samyang on eBay (Click here).
