SAR reader Albert tested the new Sony 90mm FE macro lens autofocus performance and posted the results on SonyAlphaForum (Click here). He noticed the autofocus is fast even at full aperture and so reliable that it can focus on the ant eyes! Check all the autotofocus macro pictures on SonyAlphaForum!

This is really a great lens and cause of sleepless nights because I don’t know if I should get that one or the new 85mm Batis :(
The RX100 IV gains some headline-grabbing features such as high frame rate and 4K video but it’s the smaller features that most impressed us. Continuous eye tracking, fast Raw burst modes with AF, and small user-interface changes have made the Mark IV the most responsive and enjoyable RX100 yet. It’s the most expensive in the series but is peerless in terms of capability.
And Mirrorlessons posted the slow motion test video at 100, 250, 500 and 1000fps with the RX100 IV:

It was often not 100% clear what your rights are when buying refurbished stuff at Amazon. Luckily they now added that special graph showing what kind of guarantee you get. You have that epxlanation on many Sony products I am going to list here (sometimes with additional link to same auction on eBay):
If you own the very laud Sony A7r than you may be really interested how much more silent the new A7rII shutter is. Check out the video above!
And two readers from UK confirmed that they will get their A7rII preorder from Wex UK on July 30 already! Damn lucky guys those brits! But hey, there is no sun there so let them enjoy the camera as first :)
