On the German Forum Dslr-forum.de Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens owners spotted a specific issue: The lens takes unsharp pics when shooing at f/2.0 aperture with AF-S focusing via the EVF. Sigma germany acknowledge the problem and is working to fix it.
I am sure Sigma will fix that issue as this sounds a lot like a software issue. There is really no reason to not buy this lens also because it’s the best APS-C E-mount lens to date according to DxOmark.
The Eyelead sck-1b sensor cleaning gel kit for Sony is available for order at Photographylife (Click here). I removed the original Amazon link because as reported by Nasim the version on sale are grey imported via third party Chinese sellers only.
SAR reader LALA was kind enough to provide us that feedback on the product:
I bought a copy of the Sony one there (Photographylife).. Made in Germany. The difference between Sony stick and non Sony stick (the one designed for Sony is $5 more usually) is that the Sony stick has been designed and made ‘less sticky’ due to IBIS on Sony cameras, so you don’t f’….k up the magnets and IBIS. I’ve been using it not only on my Sony A7RII but on all my other cameras, DSLR and mirrorless. Basically I stopped wet cleaning my sensors after I got it, this is that good. It will clean your sensor guaranteed and it is very easy to use.
Watch the video below to see how it works:
Important reminder: The RED gel is for Sony cameras and the BLUE gel for all other manufacturers.
Lensvid posted that Sony video interview. A couple of news we got from this:
1) Sony sees a market for A-mount enthusiasts (particularly in the mid-upper level) 2) don’t expect Sony to make any entry level camera other than the A68 3) We will quickly recover from the Kumamoto damage 4) We are working on algorithms to increase the battery life and lower the overheating on E-mount cameras. These could be released 5) In Europe we have 25% of the Full Frame market share
Hi, I'm using a Konova k5 slider with a Sony A7s. Recently, I used my a7s to get a simple slider shot and on all of them the pictures have this weird noticeable jerk to them. I've even tried to use warp stabilizer and premiere and the jerking is still noticeable. I've uploaded […]
Apologies if this has been covered before. I've been trying to install Capture One Express on my PC. It downloads OK but won't install as it insists on having a 64 bit version of Windows - I have 32 bit Windows 10. Is there a 32 bit version? I wasn't given any options […]
