(SR4) What I heard about the A-mount future so far: Going Pro, slow release cycle, lenses.


While E-mount news and rumors are pretty reliable and stable the A-mount future is quite more…unpredictable. The last couple of weeks I got in contact with as many as source as possible to try to gather some reliable info. And this is what I got:

1) A-mount is certain to continue.
2) Sony E-mount success caught Sony a bit “unprepared”. Therefore many A-mount product released have been “delayed” to focus resources and production on E-mount. This because that system needs to be broadened as soon as possible before the competition catches up. Editor’s note: This could be a reason why some of the rumored A-mount lenses planed for 2014 haven’t been released yet
3) Release cycle of A-mount products is getting longer.
4) New A-mount cameras will focus on a more high end market (likely no cheap entry level A-mount camera to come anymore?).

LIke I told you before the next VERY BIG(!) Sony announcement is scheduled for January-February 2015. But none of the sources could yet confirm this is for A-mount. I hope to get mroe about it soon. If you have some “rumor” to share just send me an anonymous messages here:

Oleg: “I filmed some swans with my Sony a65 and created this clip just for fun https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5yRuj1hraE. I used old but nice Tamron 200-400/5.6 lens with manual focus and aperture-proirity mode on f13-f16.
Quality of final video was slightly decreased because it was re-encoded on youtube with stabilizer feature. In windy weather is so difficult to get nice picture with software Anti-shake on 400mm focal. But anyway, i like results getting with this camera and this lens, and filming process too :)

Edward:I found out about the Mitakon 50mm f/0.95 first on your website. After a really long wait for the lens to arrive, I’ve finally managed to get some decent samples for a review. I’ve just finished it and thought some of your readers might like see what I found: http://infraedd.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/lens-review-mitakon-50mm-f095.html
