This is the first image of the new Mitakon 85mm f/1.2 Sony A-mount lens.



The store Genustech is already showing the new Mitakon/Zyoptics 85mm f/1.2 lens. And it says it will come for Sony E-mount too but I think that’s a typo because Zyoptics said it’s A-mount.

Reminder: Mitakon-Zyoptics already make a long list of Sony E-mount lenses. You can find them on eBay (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).

(SR4) Sony will launch a new RX100 camera with LX100 similar sized sensor!

LX100 vs RX100m3 by Camerasize.

One trusted source heard from his “Sony sources” that they are “field testing” a new RX camera. It’s  a little bit bigger RX100m3 alike camera with larger sensor. The sensor size is said to be similar to the one used by the Panasonic LX100 (images on eBay). But the camera is a bit more compact than the LX100. And just like it happened with the A6000 successor also the new RX100 large sensor camera “won’t release just yet, due to heat issues with the updated BIONZ X“.

UPDATE: Just lately Sony listed two new Four Thirds sized sensors with 16MP and 20MP. One of them could be used by the new RX100m4 camera:

Anonymous:The Odin for Sony is currently not compatible with the Indra500. The new firmware to make it Sony-compatible is in the works, however no release date is known so far.

Gary:Hey guys I just finished a video showing a review for an older Teleconverter that I picked up to use with the CX900. Its an Olympus Tcon 14B 1.45 converter. 62mm. I could not find any video samples online showing teleconverters so I bought both the Tcon and an Olympus Wcon 8b to test. You can check out the Tcon Video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OY0rbfVqpxQ
