There is one very top source who shared 100% correct info on the RX1rII and A99II. And as he is sharing the info anonymously via our contact form I have to public this post to be sure he read me.
Question to source:
First of all thanks for the info. I know it’s not easy to share Sony information. I have a short question: Can you give us an update about the next High End FF E-mount camera? Like possible release time and sensor info. And is there also a way to contact you via email to avoid chatting through official SAR posts :) Thanks!
And if you have some “rumor” to share just send me an anonymous messages here. Please use an Pseudonym so that I can recognize you in the future:
As you may remember Tokina just announced a new 20mm f/2.0 Full Frame manual focusing E-mount lens (specs here at BHphoto).
Well at photokina Tokina is teasing the launch of three more lenses and this time they will all have autofocus too:
1) Super Wide FE autofocus lens (release 2017) 2) Fast wide FE autofocus lens (release 2017) 3) Zoom FE autofocus lens (release 2018)
And here is the Tokina 20mm FE lens hands-on by Matt Granger:
1) The a99 II has all the same gammas and audio options as the a7R II, but with the addition of Slog-3
2) The new menu is quite snappy and a bit more intuitive that before, but its not a radical departure. More usefully there is a new dial on the front of the camera that can control aperture clicklessly – which is great. I wish this feature was on other cameras. You can also switch between S35 and full frame modes at the push of a button – this is also great.
3) Sony told us that the output of the sensor benefits from a new LSI processing chip. The result is that the image and rolling shutter performance may be even better than the a7R II.
4) Strangely autofocus is the camera’s weak area for video. The blisteringly fast new AF system doesn’t work the same way in video mode as stills.
5) Sony have created the camera that most Canon DSLR video lovers would have died for. If the a99 II had an EF mount the internet would probably have melted by now. As it is, the a99 II deserves more attention because Sony have done exactly what Canon have refused to do. If you want a well built S35 shooting 4K hybrid with S-Log3, audio options and the option to shoot full-frame then the a99 II should be top of your list.
Photokina opened his doors today and plenty of bloggers and SAR readers are sending us their hands-on reports and impressions. This post will be continually updated with new informations.
Photokina A99II newsfeed:
Hands-on with Sony a99 II at Dpreview. There is finally some small info about the new menu:
Sony has refreshed the camera’s menus to make them both easier to navigate and to remember. Some associated features have now been clustered together – you can find all the movie options in the same place, for instance. The tabs as the top of the menu are also now color coded, to help you recognise and remember which section of the menu you’re in. Whether this is be visible enough to help you recall where a particular setting is remains to be seen but it’s great to see Sony taking steps to address their menu system.
Sony A99 II Hands-On First Impressions: Time with Sony’s new professional speed demon (Imaging Resource):
“The autofocus system was very quick and seemed to lock onto targets as well as track them fairly well.”
