Pierre Paqueton about the new Batis: “aperture is low enough to make it dreamy”

Zeiss Photographer Pierre Paqueton shared a couple of new shots taken with the yet to be announced new Batis tele portrait prime lens. When asked about the lens aperture he did answerthis:

aperture low enough to make it dreamy, and that’s all you need to know 😉

and in a next post:

I know so many of you are very curious as to what the focal length and aperture of the new Batis lens might be. Although, I can’t tell you any specifics, I hope this photo gives an idea of how shallow you can get with the lens. Sharp detail, focus, and Bokeh are 3 main factors for me when creating a shot. And I’m happy to say this lens exceeded my expectations in all 3 categories.

The lens will be announced within 1-2 weeks!

(SR4) New Sony High End E-mount Camera rumor: Low resolution, high speed and 20fps

The mirrorless protoype shaped like a DSLR from Sony (2014)

Before the A6500 announcement a first time source sent me the info about the A6500 camera and I posted it with low SR2 ranking. Of course now we know the rumor turned out to be correct.

Now he shared some info about the possible new High End E-mount camera from Sony. Please note that there is yet no guarantee he is right on those rumors too. But at least the info is more “Likely” to be true:

  1. The camera under development seems to have 2 models.
    One is high-resolution model around 70MP, and the other is super high-performance AF, super high speed continuous shooting, and super high ISO sensitivity model.
  2. The first model to be released will be the low rez and super high-performance AF camera
  3. I don’t know whether both models are released like α7, 7R or A9.
  4. Many professional photographers introduce Emount, and Sony receives many requests from professional photographers through PRO support. High-end Emount camera (probably α9) will become the camera in response to the demand of professional photographers.
  5. The camera with lower resolution sensor is very fast and has in its prototype stage shoots around 20 fps
  6. Estimated price range is $6,000

From other trusted sources we know this: The new High End camera has unlimited RAW buffer time, dual memory card slot (probably dual SD and not the dual XQD version as reported 1 year ago), and a larger than A7rII body. Also the model with Lower Megapixel count and higher FPS seems to be the one that will be announced first.

Sony registered a new camera code….for a new FF E-mount?

The chinese public agency registered the code of a new Sony camera “WW361847”. Usually this means that within 1-2 months that camera will be announced to the public Now here is the interesting thing:

The “WW3*****” code is usually used to define the A7 camera series! The A7, A7r, A7s, A7II and A7rII all had the “WW3*****” prefix when they gor registered. The only exception is the A7sII which uses the “WW8*****” prefix.

While RX camera use “WW4” and “WW8” prefix.

So this backups  the rumor we posted yesterday that Sony will announce something “Big” in April.
