Sony A77II test roundup!

Share


Detailed hands on with the Sony A77 II by Sony

 

Here are a couple of A77II test links I got from SAR readers (Thank You All!).

A77II quick review by Yannick Ciancanelli.

ISO test images and RAW files at Sonyuserforum.de.

Vishal:I received my A77II and have been taking plenty of photos with it. I’m aware there are not that many shots taken with the camera online as of yet, so I would like to point SAR readers to my Flickr page, which showcases some of the images I’ve taken with my Zeiss 16-80mm F3.5-4.5 (SAL1680Z). I’ve organised the photos in a folder named “Sony A77II” to make things easier. The images were shot in Raw and converted to jpeg using the latest version of Sony’s Image Data Converter. You can find the images here. https://www.flickr.com/photos/drvish/sets/

Andreas:I’ve found a way to convince Photoshop CS5 to process Sony α77 II (ILCA-77M2) raw files, which might be interesting for other fellow Sony users: http://seeraeuberphoto.wordpress.com/2014/05/29/how-to-convince-photoshop-cs5-to-process-sony-%CE%B177-ii-ilca-77m2-raw-arw-files/ However I have no idea if I am the only one where this “hack” works, or if it works for other people as well.

Sigma says they have no plan to make FE lenses yet (but it could change in future).

Share

Image of one of their current APS-C 19mm E-mount lens.

Plenty of A7 camera owners hope to see Sigma make a proper E-mount version of the superb 50mm A-mount lens you can preorder Amazon (Click here), BHphoto (Click here), Adorama (Click here), WexUK (Click here) and WexDe (Click here). But I have some bad news:

A SAR reader contacted Paul Pizzano (Manager from Sigma) and he told him that there is not plan to make Full Frame E-mount lenses yet:

“Maybe one day but it would take a much larger commitment on the part of Sony. A full Line of cameras and lenses with the FE mount, as well as the conversion of their NEX line to the FE mount. At the moment it is a very limited line and we are unable to invest in it when the parent company Sony seems reluctant to do so.”

IN short, Sigma will wait to see if the Full Frame E-mount will become popular or not…
