Sigma still didn’t tell us when they will ship the amazing 50mm ART lens for Sony. But today Amazon US gave us a very vague update and says it will ship it within 2-5 months The A-mount lens can be preordered in USA Amazon (Click here) at BHphoto (Click here) and Adorama (Click here). And in Europe at WexUK (Click here) and WexDe (Click here).
As you know there is a great $350 off on the A6000 with Zeiss 16-70mm lens kit at BHphoto. You get it in Black (Click here) or Silver (Click here). And there is an even greater deal at Cameta (Click here) where you get 8 free extras too!
But how good is the Zeiss lens? SLRgear (Click here) just posted the lens test results and writes:
For Sony shooters using APS-C E-mount cameras, the Sony E 16-70mm ƒ/4 Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* ZA OSS lens is a very versatile, lightweight, well-built lens with good image quality. The images are quite sharp, even wide open, and the autofocus performance is excellent. The Sony 16-70mm Zeiss is an excellent walkaround lens.

Chuljae Lee posted that Sony A7s silent shutter test video and guess what…it’s really silent!
This is one of my small dreams come true. Even better than the already very silent leaf shutter of the Sony RX1! There are many conditions were you want this: wedding photography for example. I think it’s one of the best untold A7s features on the web!

Tomer: “I would like to share with you the best two weeks of my life. It was a combination of of a great location (NY), great camera and equipment and a seven month pregnant amazing wife. For years I have been using Sony cameras and a year ago I’ve decided to “switch camps” and go with Nikon’s DSLR. Short while after I moved to Nikon, the passion of spontaneously taking the camera and take photos simply faded, it was not as fun as it used to and I really felt bad about that. After a year of long and hard work, I have decided to do a vacation together with my wife in NY. I have visited all over Europe but never been to the states. I timed the trip to the launch of SONY A7 and sold my Nikon camera along with all other equipment, wanted to do a fresh start, who knows, maybe the passion will come back with the A7. This meant that I flew to NY without a camera, something I would never do because taking photos is one of the most important parts of my every day life. I remember the fear I had of being in NY, the place I always wanted to explore without a camera or worse, being with a camera and equipment I have no idea on operating, did I do the right move? First photo I did was with the Iphone, it was a photo of “We’ve landed and we are safe” for family and friends. The hotel informed us that we have to wait 5 hours for check in, I left my wonderful seven month wife in the lobby after 16 hours of flight (Tel Aviv to New York City) so she can rest and i ran to B&H to get my hands on the A7 with 20% battery on my phone and google maps…
2 hours later and 3 hours for the check in, I studied the camera and its features as much as I possible could because this was the only free time I had for it, afterwards my wife’s vacation starts and I have to focus on her.
So, here it goes, these are the photos I’ve took with the best camera I’ve ever held in my life while traveling with the woman I love in the greatest city on earth. If you like my post you can see some of the picture in
