(SR4) Two new Full Frame Sony cameras coming soon!

FacebookShare

Small updated about the new big Sony announcement rumor I posted yesterday: I am now 90% sure Sony will very soon announce (at last) two new Full Frame cameras. Definitely one E-mount, not sure yet if the second cam is A-mount or E-mount….fingers crossed and stay tuned on SAR!
Reminder: There is on Sony announcement before the NAB show in early April and one in May. Expect the two new cameras to be announced at one or both these events.

A small tidbit: One of my trusted sources told me these cameras will come with a “soft announcement”. It means almost no reviewer or press will get the camera before the announcement and the little info shared will come directly via Sony Japan. Just like it happened with the Sony A7II.

New 24-240mm FE lens is now in Stock at SonyStore and BestBuy. New lens tests.

FacebookShare

Bildschirmfoto 2015-03-17 um 18.40.57

The new Sony FE 24-240mm is right now in Stock at SonyStore (Click here) and BestBuy on eBay (Click here). And it’s shipping from the other US stores. And there is a new hands-on review and image samples posted by George on SonyAlphaForum:

Ergonomically mounted on the A7II it feels fine and it is pretty easy to zoom in and out though a bit stiff. The lens hood brings the width to about 3-3/4” in diameter. I am not much for the lens grading sites so I test the lens for myself to see how I like it and I made a target to shoot at. On the target I try to fill the frame and I shoot at 1 aperture, shutter speed and ISO through the whole range of the zoom. I use 2 flashes in small soft boxes. Anyhow I am more pleased than I thought I would be with this lens as it is really not too bad! It should really make a good travel lens and work well during my impending trip to Disney World.  So on the lens itself at 24mm there is substantial barrel distortion (easy fixed in Lightroom) and some softness on the edges but still acceptable. At 35mm the barrel is almost gone but it is still on the soft size. At 50mm the distortion changes to pin cushion but it becomes very sharp and continues that until 150 where the image becomes a bit soft on the edges again and is the same at 240mm. 

More new tests at Velgos and in German at SystemKameraBlog.
