Is Sony Too Big to Succeed? (Eetimes)

Christian:I think I can say I’m the one dedicated to macro photography. I’ve always been a Sony user, my current camera is a NEX5-T, waiting to upgrade to the A7 successor. I think the NEX5-T is a very handy camera, perfect for macro work, even if I have to use extension tubes as we don’t have Sony macro lenses yet, until the 100mm f/2.8 is available:

Eddy: “Something that might be of interest to your readers: DxO recently launched a new version of DxO Optics, with a new function called ‘ClearView’, which is intended to get rid of ‘haze’ in landscapes. I’ve been using it a number of times, both on older and recent shots and it really does a nice job. As you know the A7R already has a really good dynamic range, but what DxO ClearView can do with it, in just one click, it’s amazing. Here are some pictures from last WE, with the setting sun and some nice clouds: http://www.thelightpoet.be/2014/11/sunset-le-havre-november-2014/

Brand new pictures from the A7m2 (with grip and lenses). And some new info.

FacebookShare

ilca-7m2_storereview_013

Note: Sony A7m2 preorders will be available the coming week (likely around November 27). I will inform you when those will be online. For now the camera is only listed on Sony Germany, Sony UK, Sony Italy, Sony France, Sony Australia, Digitalrev. With only preorders accepted at Amazon Japan.

Preorders:
Sony Alpha a7II  (Body Only) for $1,698 at Amazon (Click here), BHphoto (Click here), Adorama (Click here), SonyStore (Click here).
Sony Alpha a7II  with FE 28-70mm OSS Lens for $1,998 at Amazon (Click here), BHphoto (Click here), Adorama (Click here), SonyStore (Click here).
Sony 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 G SSM II Lens for $1,148 at BHphoto (Click here).

These are the very first real extensive hands-on pictures and reports coming from Sonyshop-satouchi, Biglobo and Yagumo-Camera. You can see many new details on these pictures like the different battery and connection slot (Click on them to see the larger version). The sites also do report a lot of other details:

– The A7mII feels really good in hand. Shutter button is easy to touch now and it’s easier to hold lenses due the larger grip
– A7m2 has not “4D focus” as the a6000 because the number of AF points doesn’t meet the required standard
– AF speeds is as fast as the A6000 anyway
– Sony again repeats the 5 axis stabilization has been developed by Sony and is not taken from Olympus
