Before to start…the NEX-7 body is now in Stock at Adorama too (Click here). And the kit version will be in Stock on March 31 at Amazon (Click here). And now let’s talk about the new lens tests:

Carl Garrard (Click here) tested the Sony 85mm f/2.8 SAM lens: “You probably won’t fall in love with its looks or build, or even it’s max aperture which is “average” for a prime lens in this focal length. Instead, you’ll probably like it’s optical performance which is above the expectations I had set for this lens. Contrast is excellent wide open, one of the better lenses I’ve seen of late, and sharpness is very high too. Color is neutral and accurate, very much like how Sony G lenses have an effect on color.” Check the lens price at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.

Photozone (Click here) keeps posting new Sony lens reviews. He just tested the Sony 16-50mm f/2.8 DT SSM G on the NEX-7: “The setup with the EA-LA2 is vastly superior to the NEX kit lens but there is a price to pay for this, of course. The lens itself is actually surprisingly affordable compared to similar offerings from Nikon and Canon but the Alpha adapter doesn’t come for free and size- and weight-wise it is also a bit of a monster on a dwarfish NEX. However, if you want to make the most of your system the Sony 16-50mm f/2.8 DT SSM is certainly a viable option.” Check the lens price at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
