Sony says: We will keep surprising you in 2014!


Sony manager MR. Kimio has been interviewed at (google translation here).

1) The first part of the interview is about the current stagnation on the camera market. And he talks about the Xperia Z1 and the QX cameras to be one of Sony’s way to win young people and balance the losses in the compact camera business.
2) Sony will focus on more high-end photographic products.
3) Sony will keep focusing on creating something new and they will “surprise” us.
4) We will definitely NOT stop to produce A-mount cameras.
5) The Sony manager literally says that next year quite some people will say: “What the heck is this?” as soon as they see some of the very innovative new Sony cameras :)

As you know here on SAR we talked a lot about some crazy tech developed by Sony: The new Non-Bayer sensor, the Z-shift sensor cameras, liquid lens tech and so on. What would really surprise you?

Next great Sigma ART lens: 135mm f/2.0 to be announced in 2014?

Image of one of the current existing Sigma ART lenses

Sigma is releasing quite many excellent lenses lately. And more will come in 2014. It is rumored that one of the next ART lenses will be the 135mm f/2.0 lens. Would be nice don’t you think?

Sony press conference on January 6, 2014 (But don’t expect A-mount camera news yet).

There will be three big shows the first months of 2014. The CES show in January, the CP+ show in February and the NAB Las Vegas show in April. Androidauthority reports that Sony has scheduled a press conference on January 6. But I think the chances are extremely low that Sony will announce any new A-mount camera on that day. From what I heard the timeframe for the next A and E-mount camera announcement is February-April (with 4K A-mount to be shown at NAB in April).

As I told you before we can expect new APS-C and FF A-mount cameras to be released. And so new APS-C E-mount cameras (including the NEX-7 successor). What Sony could announce on January 6 are a couple of compact cameras.

Sigma 24-105mm gets DxOmarked. Top performance!

A couple of days ago I told you Sony will introduce a new 24-105mm lens along the new generation A-mount cameras. Well, the main competitor, the Sigma 24-105mm f/4.0 just got tested at DxOmark (Click here). It will not be easy for Sony to beat the IQ of that lens!

The Sigma A-mount lens can be preordered at Amazon (Click here), BHphoto (Click here) and Adorama (Click here).
