And here is the full Sony-Olympus press meeting!

Share

As you know the big news on the end of the last week was the official Sony and Olympus partnership announcement. Today there was a press meeting in Tokyo and you can read more about it at  DC.watch (translation here). It is the medical business from Olympus that Sony wants most but of course there will be implication in the camera division too. The press conference confirmed that both companies will seek collaboration. Sony will supply sensors to Olympus while Olympus will supply lens and mirrorless technology and knowledge.If google translation didn’t fool me than it’s also clear that many components for future mirrorless cameras will be developed together. It is Sony’s interest to sell Micro Four Thirds sensor and not to make Olympus quit from the system.

I think Olympus can add an immense value to the NEX system by may making High Quality Zuiko lenses for it. Don’t think Olympus will make NEX cameras for now. Or do you really want an E-moun PEN? :)

Sony: There is no need to lower the price of the A99.


Lesnumeriques (translation here) interviewed Mr. Takashi Yasuda from Sony. The main talk was about the new Sony A99 and when asked about the competition and their price he said that “we believe that the Alpha 99 is well positioned and have no intention of facing competitors in the field of 24×36 reflex at discounted prices.“. But he also adds to the end that it is the market that will decide if the price is correct.

As you know Nikon/Canon recently announced their first low price FF cameras, the Nikon D600 (here on eBay) and the Canon 6D. While the A99 has manu unique features there may be a need to make a cheaper A95 version to compete against the mentioned FF cameras.

Full size Sony NEX-6 image samples (and manual download)

Sony posted the first NEX-6 full size image samples on Flickr (Click here). And the full manual is available for download at Fcc.gov. I am often very critic when it comes to talk about the new Sony cameras (see the A77 initial issues, the RX1 price, and so on). But honestly, the NEX-6 camera is the best camera Sony ever made when it comes to weight the price and feature balance. It has an a amazing sensor, and plenty of useful features and for $999 you get it with an handy 16-50mm pancake zoom. I can only highly recommend it!

First VG900 image samples with SLRmagic 50mm T/0.95 lens.

These are first image samples shot on the VG900 with the SLRmagic 50mm T/0.95 M-mount lens (with M to E mount adapter). Click on the images to see a larger version of it. Another source present at the Sony event said that Sony presented the VG900by saying it uses the same Nikon D600 Sony sensor :)
