Today Nikon announced the new 24 megapixel D7100 (spes on Amazon). It’s a nice camera with no Anti Aliasing filter and plenty of new features. It puts again a lot of pressure on the Sony SLT cameras. Sony is going to announce the new A7x this summer and I hope the new generation of Sony sensors will at least catch up with the quality of the new Nikon! And for that they will probably have to get rid of the AA filter too.
The A58 should be seen as the successor for the A37. If you see it from that perspective the A58 certainly is a nice camera and also priced well. Price for body with new 18-55mm SAM II kit lens $599 but preorders at Amazon and BHphoto will be online on Monday only. I know it sounds weird but the official US presentation will be made on Monday!
The main coolness of this camera is the incredible tiny size (check the size comparison at ePhotozine)! It’s the smallest APS-C mirrorless camera of the world and the $499 price includes the 16-50mm pancake zoom. That’s a good price if you consider that the current NEX-F3 with the less good and much bigger 18-55mm lens has the same price (here at Amazon). Also the body quality has been improved over the NEX-F3 with a less “plastic” feeling.
This morning I did a fairly comprehensive test of my new a5100 with both the kit lens (16-55), and the fixed lens (20mm) I bought along with the camera kit. I learned a number of things (including that the 20mm was not an OSS lens), but what concerned me most is that the kit […]
I thought it would be great to have a show and tell. Show us your pictures from the a6000 and tell us your story moving to A6000. I am a Canon shooter from way back. I wanted a smaller kit and 4/3 was to small, still wanted Bokeh. Since Sony is innovating I am […]
Why not using the wifi capability of sony a7, in order to trigger an off camera flash? After all, as far as I understand Wifi works on 2.4Ghz, some of those radio triggers works on 2.4ghz. It's all about new app that will use the right protocol. Will still need the Receiver on the Flash, […]
Well I learned something about the difference between the "alpha" and the "NEX" lens mounts.I ordered a T-adapter (to hang my a5100 on the back end of a telescope (I ordered the Vello LA-SA-T, which is Vello's designation for the Lens Asapter/Sony alpha-T).The "T" side of the adapter fit great, but it would not mate […]
Does it still make sense to buy APS-C-Lenses, when there are FE-Lenses, which work as well with A7-Cameras as with APS-C-Cameras? Will the FE-Lenses not bring a better resolution on the APS-C-Sensor, as E-Lenses would do?
