(SR5) More lens price info (and A7r costs $100 more than Samys leak).

$1998 is what you pay for that kit (or 1999 Euro)

Got some more pricing info in Euro and Dollars:

Cameras:
– The leaked Samy price for the A7r could be wrong. Instead of $2198 the price should be $2298. In Europe the price is likely 2400 Euro.
– The A7 body only costs $1698 as leaked on Samys.
– $1998 (or 1999 Euro) is what you pay for the A7 kit version with the 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens.
– The RX10 costs $1298

Lenses:
– The Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 prime lens will cost 800 Euro and in US $800
– The Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 prime lens will cost 1100 Euro and in US $1000
– The Sony 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom will cost around 500 Euro (not sure yet about price in USA)
– The Zeiss 24-70mm f/4.0 zoom will cost around $1200 (not sure yet about price in Europe)

Reminder: Sony will stream live the A7-A7r and RX10 announcement at 7am London time. Be sure to be online on SonyAlphaRumors by that time to see the presentation, first reviews, preorders and so on!

(SR5) First image of the Full Frame Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 Sonnar E-mount lens. Costs around 1100 Euro.

via Mirrorlessrumors: That lens is quite huge but it’s said to deliver a very high image quality. One source said that the big size was necessary to deliver an impressive performance from center to corner. A f/1.4 lens would have become much larger. What does the “Sonnar” mark stay for? Compared to Planar designs the Sonnars had more aberrations, but with fewer glass-to-air surfaces it had better contrast and less flare (Source: Wikipedia).

The price is about 1100 Euro. More or less the launch price of the Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 APS-C lens.

Only for manual focusing shooter: There are many possible alternatives if you want a smaller 50mm prime lens:
Zeiss ZM 50mm f/1.5 (here on eBay)
Canon FD 50mm f/1.8 (here on eBay)
Leica M Summicron 50mm f/2.0 (here on eBay)

(SR5) Full Sony A7r presentation at Diglloyd

I guess Digglloyd will not be happy to see me posting to his erroneously leaked A7r article (Click here). Just wanted to let him know that I posted the link yet because it’s already all over the web (because it was in his RSS feed and everyone linked to it on forums).

Some key info about the A7r and lenses:
– The sensor is new and RAW images 14bit
– The Sony A7R weights 465g with battery and card which is 32g less than the Olympus E-M1
– The 281 gram 55mm f/1.8 is a Sonnar design.
– The Zeiss 70-200mm f/4 OSS weights 840 gram (without tripod collar)

Mistake: Diglloyd writes f/2.8 FF is f/1.0 equivalent on MFT. Not correct, it’s f/1.4!

 

Reminder: Sony will stream live the A7-A7r and RX10 announcement at 7am London time. Be sure to be online on SonyAlphaRumors by that time to see the presentation, first reviews, preorders and so on!

Spread the word! Big party time here on SAR tomorrow :)
