Share

Fake A9 rendering at SonyAlphaForum (post your dream A9 renderings there!).

All we know with 99% certainty is that Sony has a new FE FF camera on the pipeline which will be the first of its line and placed above the current A7 camera series. It’s likely to come during the first half of 2015. We have no specs from trusted sources so for once let’s share specs I got from an anonymous source. This means it’s hardly to be the real final specs but at least it’s a start to discuss the new camera:

– 46 Megapixel Bayer sensor
– 4 fps
– 100-25,600 ISO (extended 50 and 51,200)
– weather sealed body
– 4K output (no internal 4K recording)
– Price yet not final but around to $3,000

Would you consider to buy a camera with those specs?

Some fun: This is how the 12mm f/1.0 FE E-mount lens looks on the A7.

12mm

You may have missed that but lats weekend some Chinese site posted a fake image of a 12mm f/1.0 FE E-mount lens. As a rumor site it’s my duty to tell you that the image you see is a fake. To better show you how funny that fake is SAR reader Steve (Thanks!) shows you how big the lens would look on the A7 :)

As a side not if the lens would be real I guess the size could really be like that!

Zeiss “tweets” that there is no delay on Loxia 50mm shipment. It’s out of Stock because of the high demand!

 

Carl Zeiss posted that tweet to deny that the Loxia 50mm lens could be out of Stock for the next months. And on Facebook Zeiss writes:

There are rumors out there stating that our Loxia 2/50 will be out of stock for months. Let us state that this is not true! While it is out of stock with some dealers at the moment due to high demand, we are constantly producing new batches and shipping them to distributors and dealers. So please, don’t worry!

Fact is that no EU and US stores has them in Stock now (and they were supposed to be in Stock back in October). So let’s hope the lens will indeed ship soon as promised by Zeiss. By the way, Thanks Zeiss for officially giving us an answer!

These are five new Sigma zooms for APS-C mirrorless system (Source: Egami). From all those lenses I hope to get the 18-55mm f/2.8 zoom. It’s a lens that’s highly missing in the E-mount range!

(SR4) New Tamron prime lenses will resolve the new close to 50 Megapixel Sony FF sensor!

The following rumor is from a very good Tamron source. The source shared the following very interesting info:

– Tamron is working on a new SP.2 lens line. It is made to resolve the High resolution Full Frame sensors coming from Sony. In detail Sony told Tamron that it’s “around” 46 megapixel.
– The 15-30mm f/2.8 DI VC USD lens Tamron announced at Photokina is the first of the new SP.2 line. It will work fine on those new Sony 50MP FF cameras.
– Tamron is also working on the design of two prime lenses that can resolve such a resolution.

Also interesting: The source said that Sony sensor will come for both A and E-mount FF cameras. Although he could not tell me which camera will come first and when it will be released.

Note: The source is trustworthy because he shared the 15-30mm f/2.8 lens info before the announcement. Back at Photokina I didn’t post the info because it was of the many new sources with rumors I could not confirm via trusted sources.
