New NEX-7 tests at Luminous Landscape (and 12mm lens tets at 3Dkraft)

La Parroquia from The Luminous Landscape on Vimeo.

There is a new NEX-7 versus A900 comparison at Luminous Landscape (Click here). As usual with LL this is a very honest and interesting review (Bravo!). I am not surprised to see the NEX-7 image quality to be on par with the A900. And it also makes me even increase the expectations on the image quality of the upcoming new A99 with 24 Megapixel full frame sensor. P.S.: Here are the links to the still amazing A900 camera: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.

Meanwhile 3Dkraft (Click here) made a sort of crazy test. He attached the 12mm f/1.6 Hypeprime m43 lens (Here on eBay) on the NEX-7 via m43 to E-mount adapter: “As expected, the image circle of this m4/3 lens does not cover the whole APS-C sensor format. But the shadowing effect is less than expected as you can see in the following example taken at F2.0

NEX-7 availability status:
I am in contact with stores in Europe and USA. They all told me that the new NEX-7 body only stocks will arrive in February. The kit version is due for March. So here is the full link list:

Huge! New Metabones Canon to NEX adapter with electronic aperture control!

Now that is a small news that could turn out to be very important! I know of many Canon users that are tempted to join the NEX system. Canurus (Click here) announced a super Canon C-mount to E-mount adapter that will make their choice much easier :) This isn’t just one of those cheap manual only adapters you usually found here on eBay. It has electronic aperture control! And Canon lenses with Image Stabilization will also work on your NEX! More info:

  • True electronic integration of aperture diaphragm – let camera automatically choose aperture in P or S exposure modes, or dial in yourself on the camera body in A or M modes.
  • Powered by camera body. No external power source required.
  • Wide open button (opposite of depth-of-field preview function) makes manual focusing easy.

Estimate launch date for the adapter is January 21st!

P.S.: The Sony NEX-5n is back in Stock in limited quantities via third party reselelrs on Amazon (Click here).
