Techart is also considering to make Leica R Contax CY and Nikon AI mount autofocus adapters!


Techart created quite a buzz by announcing the development of a M-mount to Sony E-mount autofocus adapter! And you can see it at work on the video below.

But there is more to come! The developer of the M-mount autofocus adapter said he plans to create three more of those kind of adapters:

R to E-mount autofocus adapter for Leica R lenses (here on eBay).
CY to E-mount autofocus adapter for Contax Yashica lenses (here on eBay).
Ai to E-mount autofocus adapter for Nikon Ai lenses (here on eBay).

The M-mount adapter will ship in late January-early February. There is yet no info about then other three adapters will ship.

(SR4) A “confirmation” on the A6100 delivery (in Stock end of March)

I previously reported that at last the A6100 will be in Stock in March. Now two more sources confirmed the info. One of them who correctly shared (A68 data and specs) wrote:

A6100 – it should arrive in stores in EU at the end of March


AS200 and X1000 Actioncam replacements are already have been given official internal code names, they’re planed to be launched before summer sales pick. They are rumours that they will feature balanced optical steady shot know from consumer cameras 😉

In 2015 Sony delayed the A6100 launch twice because of lack of competition. As a proof of that see the Sony Wikileaks leaked Sony roadmap for Spring 2015:

I guess with the launch of the new X-PRo2 and PEN-F time has come to release the “updated” A6100.

“Sony manager” says the A99 successor “will be well worth the wait”


A SAR readers sent me the screenshot of a A99 successor conversation with a Sony store manager. While of course Sony cannot unveil anything about future products I found it nice they added the note:

We are confident the new camera will be well worth the wait.

I like that :)

(SR5) Next Batis will be a new 18mm wide angle lens.


A source sent me this:

Zeiss boss told me the Batis 18mm will be the next prime in their batis range due for release in April 2016.

Not sure 18mm is a very “popular” and “highly requested” focal length by FE owners. So let’s assume the lens will be f/2.8:

Would you consider to buy a Batis 18mm f/2.8 lens?

(SR3) First Sony A6100 specs: 36 megapixel BSI and IBIS!

I got specs from an anonymous sources. But unlike other anonymous sources this one could be true as a known source confirmed at least two of the mentioned specs are correct (name and sensor). The trusted source will soon give me more info. But in the meantime this is the yet unconfirmed(!) A6100 spec list:

  • Name: A6100
  • 36mp BSI sensor,
  • silent electronic shutter mode,
  • IBIS
  • 4K recording
  • Touchscreen

If those would be really the final A6100 specs….

Would you consider to buy the A6100 with those specs?
