(SR4) Sigma 24mm f/1.4 ART and 14-24mm ART lenses to be announced soon.

Back in May I reported how Sigma would announce a new 24mm f/1.4 ART lens at Photokina and a 85mm f/1.4 ART lens in 2015. As you knwo Sigma already launched the 50mm A-mount lens can be preordered in USA Amazon (Click here) at BHphoto (Click here) and Adorama (Click here). In Europe at WexUK (Click here) and WexDe (Click here).

Well Photorumors got some tidbits about the next Sigma announcement. The 24mm f/1.4 lens will cost $1,099 and the 14-24mm f/4.0 will cost $1,199. The latter will have a 82mm filter.
Those are really two exciting lenses and I hope this time Sigma will not let us wait a year before these will be available in their A-mount version :(

There will be definitely multiple Sony announcements the coming weeks:

- On August 19 will announce the new A5100 E-mount camera
- On September 3 Sony will announce the new QX30 (30x zoom lenscamera)
- The “heavy stuff” will be announced right before Photokina. This will likely include the new RX and A-mount cameras and the many(!) new E and A-mount lenses.

First image of the new Speedmaster Dark Knight PRO 50mm f/0.95 FE lens.

This is the first image of the new Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 Full Frame E-mount “Dark Knight” Pro edition lens. It will soon replace the current “normal” version which is sells for $849 at BHphoto or $899 on eBay.

As reported before these are the improvements of the new version:

1. Improved lens coating, which makes the lens have better performance
2. Filter thread changed to 67mm from 58mm
3. New bayonet lens hood to prevent light flare and improve “back light “s situation performance.

(SR3) 35mm f/1.4 G lens to be replaced soon?

According to one source Sony will launch a 35mm f/1.4 G lens replacement soon. And this is certainly a welcome news. This is one of the oldest “sony” lenses launched back in 2006. And now we have cheaper and better alternatives like the Sigma ART 35mm lens ($899 here at Amazon). I don’t know the price but I have been told the replacement will NOT be Zeiss branded.

(SR5) Sony A5100 will have the same A6000 sensor and superfast autofocus.


Two trusted sources told us the Sony A5100 will feature the exact same sensor of the Sony A6000. It means it will have that super fast autofocusing in a smaller and cheaper package. Sounds good to me!
I also have been told the camera Body and LCD screen will be the same of the Nex-5t (with touch screen).

No other E or A or RX camera will be announced on August 19. For that you have to wait a couple of days more ;)
