NEX-7 gets naked!

Jason from SonyAlphaLab (Click here) did what almost nobody of us would do with our own NEX-7….he toke off the clothes from the camera! You can see many more images on his website. You don’t have to be an engineer to see how many small pieces have been put inside the camera. Looking at that I miss one thing. A sensor heat cooling system. I saw it once on the GH2 and it works very effectively on it. The NEX-7 sensor quickly becomes too hot when shooting video. After a couple of minutes (between three an ten) it stops recording and shuts down :(

Sony US ebay store has NEX-7 kits and the 50mm for NEX in Stock!

I confess that I didn’t know that Sony had an ebay store. And they have plenty of NEX-7 bodies with 18-55mm kit lens in Stock (Click here to see them). And they also are shipping the super requested 50mm f/1.8 for NEX (Click here to see them).

They ship to US only and I haven’t found any Sony eBay store in other countries…or do you?

Thanks Robby

(SR5) Samyang will release NEX lenses with autofocus!

The Rokinon 8mm fisheye via ThePhoBlographer.

Samyang (also known as Rokinon) is a well known company that makes some amaizng lenses for different mounts. But until now all their lenses were manual focusing only. But in a recent interview at Techradar (Click here) they unveiled that they are going to release their first autofocus lenses for the NEX system in 2013. Good to hear we don’t have to rely on Sony and Zeiss only to get some good quality E-mount lenses!

I like Rokinon/Samyang lenses a lot and I recommend you the following two lenses for Alpha mount:
1) The 35mm f/1.4: In US you can find it as Rokinon at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here), BHphoto (Click here) and on eBay (Click here). In Europe the name is Samyang and you can find it on eBay (Click here) and with the name Wallimex again on eBay (Click here).
2) The 85mm f/1.4: You can get for $274 on Amazon (Click here), branded with the name Rokinon on eBay (Click here) and branded with the name Samyang on eBay (Click here).

ZM 50mm versus NEX 50mm by Björn Utpott.

Our reader Björn Utpott just sent me the link to his latest 50mm lens comparison (Click here to read it). The big question is: Is the new 50mm lens for NEX better than the “older” Zeiss ZM 50mm f/1.4 lens? The answer is pretty easy, the lenses have been designed for completely different kind if use. The Sonnar ZM has a more old creamy look with sharp center and less sharper borders. The new Sony 50mm is sharp through all the frame.

A99 with 24 or 36 megapixels? (D800 beats 5DmarkIII)

The two main A99 competitor are now shipping worldwide and at first glance it appears that the Nikon D800 sells more than the Canon 5DmarkIII. See the Amazon US rankings (Click here). According to my trusted sources Sony has two new FF sensors, one with 24 megapixels and the other one has 36 megapixel sensor (used for the Nikon D800). I am pretty sure the A99 uses the 24 megapixel sensor. But we are just a rumors site so everything is possible :)

The main and very basic question you should answer is:

What A99 would you buy?
