Some new info on the Samyang 14mm XP FE release…


A source sent me the following info about the new Samyang XP 14mm f/2.4 FE lens:

Canon Mount will be the first wave of 14mm lens product in early January – maaaaaaybe some Sony E Mount will be included in those shipments but he said that’s a ‘pie in the sky’ expectation. More likely Sony E Mount will appear in latter January / early February.

Juan:Take Kayo interviewed me about my Beers And Cameras meet-ups. I talk about how I use my Sony, like my M-Mount glass and other things. Think your audience may find it entertaining.

Scott:A personal project shot on a mixed bag of Sony cameras. I normally work on weddings, making films and taking photos so it was good to leave the work behind and try something different. This film was shot on the A7s, A7ll, A7r, RX100mk4, RX10mk2 and the Phantom3 Pro. The lenses used were the FE90mm f2.8, Batis 85 f1.8, FE 35 f1.4 and 24-70 f4.

Sony is conducting surveys to provide input on fast A-mount primes lens development


In Japan Sony is conducting surveys (see image above) to provide input in a-mount lens development (A-mount and not E-mount!). Note that when Sony writes “121-300” they don’t mean a zoom but a prime lens within that focal length range! This means when they ask you if you want a “121-300 F2.0” lens they mean a f/2.0 lens within that range.

So let’s help Sony and give our SAR community shot on this. I copied their focal length suggestions…

Select the three A-mount lenses Sony should absolutely make:

Sony CES press conference on January 4th (don’t expect anything new)


Sony sent out an invitation for a press conference at the CES show. The conference will be streamed live on Ustream on January 4th at 5:00 PM PST (Las Vegas time).
Last year Sony officially said that they do not announce major A or E-mount stuff on such events because they prefer to get the full spotlight. Expect a new Sony announcement by late January or early February.
So far the only “leaked” info is that Sony registered a new camera in Asia. And it should be a new compact fixed lens camera (maybe a new RX). A new Sony A7 mark III is rumored to be announced in late Spring.

Not going to happen but you can still dream it: The A-mount A9 :)


I don’t think we will ever see a Super High End A-mount camera. But this is a rendered image showing how it could look. It’s would be an expensive professional tool similar to the $6,000 Canon EOS-1D X Mark II.

But let’s get real, Sony will never do a camera like that…or not?
