(SR4) Sony has three different new FF prototypes…


It’s getting again very busy on the rumor front and I am daily working with my anonymous sources. What I can anticipate today is that I know heard about three different Sony Full Frame prototype cameras. And I mean really completely different! Not three version of the same concept. I am still working on the details of these cameras but I can anticipate that one of these is the High End A1x (not the definitive name) High Megapixel camera. That is due for a 2013 release. And photographers are already testing it on the field!

In short, stay tuned on SAR. Trying to give you all I can as soon as I can. Meantime join out Facebook SAR comunity and Twitter stream. It’s the best place to get even more info and to chat with me directly :)

One more video from DSLRgear no idea Sony campagn.

This is the latest Sony Australia video to promote mirrorless! What do you think…isn’t that also working against Sony’s own SLT advertising?

One Rokinon review, one Rokinon delay and one Rokinon deal :)

Today we have a triple Rokinon/Smayang news:

The delay: On Facebook Samyang announced that the Samyang T-S 24mm 1:3.5 ED AS UMC release has been postponed to March 2013.
The review: SLRgear tested the 85mm f/1.4 Rokinon/Smayang lens and writes: “Samyang’s approach to make an economical manual focus lens was a wise one: if you don’t need autofocus, but want the razor-thin depth-of-field of a fast lens for not a lot of money, the lens was already on your radar.
The deal: The Rokinon 8mm fisheye got a $70 discount at BHphoto (Click here).

Two reminders:
1) The first one is that like The Count of Montecristo (book I am reading now) also Rokinon has dozen names. In USA: Rokinon, Samyang, Opteka, Bower and in Europe: Samyang, Rokinon, Walimex, Falcon, Vivitar.
2) Keep watching these Black Friday deals on Amazon (Click here) on Adorama (36 pages of deals!) and on BHphoto (Click here). They are updating every hour and I am not going to update you with every deal on every camera and accessory :)

Happy shopping!

P.S.: The Count of Montecristo is the perfect book if you like me dream a revenge but you want do it for real :)

(SR4) New A-mount lenses coming the first quarter 2013 (Zeiss and zoom).

Image source: Alphaniacs

There is a good chance that Sony will launch new A-mount lenses the first months of 2013. One of the lens will be the Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 SSM. The second lens is the new version of the current 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom. I don’t know yet if there will be a third A-mount lens. I told you before that Sony is facing some lens production problems. The demand of lenses is higher than expected and this makes them change the roadmap every couple of months. One more thing: New SLT cameras are also on the way in early 2013 but I am not sure yet which one is coming first (by the way…all APS-C!).

If you have a rumor to share just drop me an anonymous message by using the contact form on the right sidebar. Or contact me at Thanks!

P.S.: I don’t know the price of the lens but we have many Zeiss 50mm lenses for different mounts and I thought it would be nice to give you an overview:
Zeiss Normal 50mm f/1.4 ZE Planar T* for Canon (see auctions on eBay)
Zeiss Normal 50mm f/1.4 ZE Planar T* for Nikon (see auctions on eBay)
Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 50mm f/1.4 50/1.4 LTM (see auctions on eBay)
Zeiss Normal 50mm f/1.4 for Contax (see auctions on eBay)
Carl Zeiss Planar T* 1.4/50 ZF 50mm F1.4 Nikon Ai-S (see auctions on eBay)

As you see the price range is soemwhere between $500 and $800. Of course these are all manual focusing lenses and do have a different design. But I hope the price will be a bit below the $1.000 mark.
