(SR4) Sony High (46?)Megapixel camera is coming for real in first quarter 2015!


The great Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8.

A trusted source shared a couple of interesting info. He knows for sure that the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 lens announced at Photokina has been designed for new High megapixel cameras. He says the lens has been tested to resolve enough detail on a Sony 46 Megapixel Full Frame camera. And that camera will be announced the first quarter of 2015! It’s yet not clear if this is an A or E (or both) mount camera.

The source who told me this shared correct info in the past therefore I rank the rumor with an SR4 level (80% chance this is correct). There is a hot rumor time coming by end of this year and very early 2015. To not miss any of the upcoming rumors subscribe here:

A little help for Zeiss: These should be your next FE Loxia lenses coming in 2015 :)


I am sure Zeiss will release many more new Loxia FE lenses in 2015. Now let us help them to decide which one they should release first! Let’s guess for a moment that they will base their new Loxia lenses on the ZM lens design. Here are all of them:
Distagon T* 2,8/15 ZM (Click here to see price on eBay).
Distagon T* 4/18 ZM (Click here to see price on eBay).
Biogon T* 2,8/21 ZM (Click here to see price on eBay).
C Biogon T* 4,5/21 ZM (Click here to see price on eBay).
Biogon T* 2,8/25 ZM (Click here to see price on eBay).
Biogon T* 2,8/28 ZM (Click here to see price on eBay).
Distagon T* 1,4/35 ZM (brand new here at BHphoto)
C Biogon T* 2,8/35 ZM (Click here to see price on eBay).
C Sonnar T* 1,5/50 ZM (Click here to see price on eBay).
Sonnar T* 2/85 ZM (Click here to see price on eBay).
Tele-Tessar T* 4/85 ZM (Click here to see price on eBay).

Now, the question is, which three ZM lenses should they make first in a proper “Loxia” version?

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

Hope Zeiss will listen to you!!!
