header_uww_vergleich

You can download the A7 with 16-35mm versus A6000 with 10-18mm comparison images at Jörg Haag’s website.

In contrary to what I did in the hands-on review of the FE 16-35mm F4 ZA OSS I will not give any comments or a verdict on the images and will leave that fully to the readers.

So what do you think of that comparison?

Preorder the 16-35mm Zeiss lens here:
USA/Canada  at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Sony Store US, Sony Canada.
Europe at Sony DE, UK, ES, IT, FR, CH, AT, NL, BE, FI, SE, NO, PT.
Australia and Asia at Sony AUS, Amazon Japan and Digitalrev.

Riaan: “I have no idea how many other have discovered this…and if they have they must be keeping it secret. The Sony A99 can sync a studio strobe outdoors in certain conditions. I am still testing how/why this happens…h.facebook.com/riaanrouxphotography/photos

Darren:So I had a recent project which I thought you may find interesting. I was recently graced with the opportunity to film a short with Daniel Ilabaca who is one of the top parkour athletes (traceurs) in the world. In this short Daniel traverses through the Los Angeles landscape in ways and places that are rarely seen. It is a unique glimpse into a city that everyone knows but that few have known like this. 90% of this short was shot on the Sony FS700. It has been my go to camera for actions sports for a couple years now. http://youtu.be/p9m-ujtNkHs

Ross:Wanted to share some of my Halloween pics … on the Waikiki streets and in two Rooftop clubs … that I only shot with the Sony a77 m2 + 16-35mm f2.8 and a few with the 50mm f1.4 ZA SSM. More on the links This is the Hyatt http://www.honolulumagazine.com Buho Rooftop Restaurant, and some Waikiki: http://www.honolulumagazine.com

Jorge:The Online catalog feature on CameraPeddler.com which allows a user to inventory his or her photographic equipment is now up and running. Furthermore, The Group Valuation feature which allows other members to value your equipment in addition to your own personal estimate, can provide a graphical presentation of your items values from other photographers. This is a great way to provide real estimates to insurance companies and validate insurance claims if any. As always, you can make these features private by turning them on or off in your settings.
The Member Wanted list is up and running as well. This is a fantastic way for dealers or individuals to monitor what potential buyers are looking for and connect with them if you have what they are seeking. A simple click of a button from within the Wanted List allows you to post an item in the market which will notify members immediately. You can also grab the RSS feed which will keep you up to date on wanted items.
For an example of an Online Catalog, visit http://www.camerapeddler.com/onlinecatalog.php?userid=13 and click on the Graph Icon.

Full Zeiss 16-35mm FE lens review at Photographyblog (gets Highly Recommended)

Share

ZeissFE

Zeiss 16-35mm FE shipping early next week! Yesterday many US SAR reader got notified that their 16-35mm preorder at Amazon US will ship next week November 18!

Photographyblog (Click here) posted the extensive 16-35mm Zeiss FE f/4.0 lens review. The lens gets Highly Recommended for the following reason:

It delivers outstanding sharpness in the centre of the frame almost throughout its aperture and zoom range, and also performs very well at the edges of the frame too. The Sony Vario-Tessar T* FE 16-35 mm F4 ZA OSS lens does suffer from both distortion and vignetting at either end of the zoom range, requiring some post-processing to remove it, but chromatic aberrations are well-controlled and it can even create some nice bokeh effects when shooting wide-open at 35mm. The relatively compact Sony Vario-Tessar T* FE 16-35 mm F4 ZA OSS offers an effective image stabilisation system, quite fast, quiet and reliable auto-focusing on the A7R that we tested it with, intuitive manual focusing and an excellent level of build quality, plus it’s usefully weather-tight too. All in all, we’d definitely recommend buying this lens if you can stomach the price of admission – it makes an excellent addition to the already released Zeiss FE 24-70mm F4 and FE 70-200mm F4 lenses.

Preorder the 16-35mm Zeiss lens here:
USA/Canada  at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Sony Store US, Sony Canada.
Europe at Sony DE, UK, ES, IT, FR, CH, AT, NL, BE, FI, SE, NO, PT.
Australia and Asia at Sony AUS, Amazon Japan and Digitalrev.
