Sony haters watch this: Sony a9 Conspiracies, Banding & Overheating

Share

Probably the worse thing about Internet is that everyone feels the right to spread all kind of unverified and illogical arguments and sell them as “truth”. The Sony A9 is such a polarizing camera and on the web you can find plenty of false stories about it. Like I told you before I found quite some bloggers and reviewers showing pictures of so-called A9 banding while in truth this was simple flickering caused by the artificial light. And of course many of the followers of those so-called reviewers or “truth-tellers” believed this was A9 making a mess.

Specifically for those people who hate Sony in a blind way Tony Northrup made that special Sony a9 Conspiracies, Banding & Overheating video:

I like how Tony debunked all those Sony conspiracy theories. Don’t let us become flat-earthers :)

UPDATE: Tony mentioned Diglloyd banding test. Just to be clear: Diglloyd is a serious reviewer and his finding are 100% valid. But those post A9 flickering videos claiming it’s banding are not good reviewers for sure :)

Sony A9:
Sony A9 at BHphotoAdorama, Amazon, BestBuy. FocusCamera. Calumet.de. Park UK. Wex UK. Jessops.
Sony A9 with Grip Extension Kit at BHphoto, Adorama and Amazon.

(SR5) First images of the new Tamron 18-400mm lens

Share

A trusted source just sent me these images of a new Tamron 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 lens. The source did not tell me if that lens will be available in native A-mount version too. But usually Tamron does offer these lenses for all kind of DSLR systems.

And this is a Leaked image of the new Milvus 35mm f/1.4 via MirrorlessRumors. It will “only” come for Nikon F and Canon EF mount but E-mount shooters can use the lens via adapter:
