Hot: First A7rII autofocus test video with Canon mount lens! First shutter sound test!

Share

Miguel Quiles just posted that A7rII autofocus test video shot with the Metabones EF adapter and the Tamron 15-30mm Canon mount lens. So what’s your first impression from that quick test?

And Gordon Laing from CameraLabs posted a short A7rII hands-on video which at last includes the first shutter noise test (minute 1). Damn is it silent compared to the “old” A7r! He also quickly tested the Canon 24mm lens autofocusing performance (minute 3):

Also new is that Sony Exclusive Look from Uniquephoto:

First A7rII SAR readers test feedback: No rolling shutter in S35 mode! Fast Af with Canon lenses!

Share

A7rII

Two of our readers got the chance to shortly test the new Sony A7rII:

Faymus Media tested the A7rII video mode and posted his impressions on SonyAlphaForum (Click here):

I used one today at the Adorama Fair. The S35 crop mode eliminates motion scew/rolling shutter. Tack sharp video, looks amazing. The native ISO for Slog-2 is 800 ISO. I punched the ISO to 12,800 and the lens to f/16. Looks clean. Has backlit sensor. Images are 14-bit RAW. I never had any issues pushing the images.

And one of our readers tested the A7rii with metabones and the Canon ef 35 1.4L:

I have to say that performance was really amazing!! it really seems like you’re using canon lens on its native camera

Terrific news! Sony is learning and improving…let’s hope they will sooner or later give us lossless RAW too :)

UPDATE: Slashcam posted that A7rIi vs A7s video mode comparison:

Is the A7000 the “one more thing” from Sony?

Share

Bildschirmfoto 2015-05-25 um 07.31.29

The new A7rII and new RX cameras got announced just like the leaked Sony camera roadmap “predicted”. But there is one piece of the puzzle still missing. The “A6xxx series” camera. That camera was scheduled to be released before the A7rII (according to sources) but has been delayed because of overheating/hardware issues. So it’s yet unclear if that camera will still be announced in June. Weeks ago an (usually) good source said Sony had the plan to launch that camera around mid June. This means…this week. But there is yet absolutely no 100% guarantee this will happen.

So far it’s rumored that the camera is placed above the A6000 and will NOT replace it. It’s more of a NEX-7 successor and it’s likely to be named “A7000”. If the camera doesn’t get announced this month than it’s highly likely Sony pushed the release back to the next Sony announcement period in September.

Rumors aside: What’s your wish list for the A7000?

SAR reader Benny spotted that new Hasselblad “lusso” E-mount camera in a Hong Kong store. The luxurified A7r clone sells for around HKD40000 which is about $5,150. Not as terribly expensive as previous Hasselblad Sony clones if you consider the 28-70mm FE lens a nice box and strap are included in the final price.

Current Hasselblad Sony clones are:
Stellar (Click here), Lunar (Click here) and Hasselblad HV ($7,999 off on BH!).
