Diglloyd: “A7rII lack of shutter vibration leads to superb results! A compelling reason to abbandon DSLR.”

Share

Note: A7rII is in Stock and shipping worldwide at Digitalrev.

3D-Kraft posted that Sony A7rIi vs A7s High ISO comparison (video on top):

The image from the A7RII shows some more detail due to its downscaling from a 15 MP sensor readout. At 25600 ISO there is a slight advantage for the A7S. Regarding noise, the A7RII is not far behind the A7S but the A7S is able to keep up more details at very high ISO.

Diglloyd posted an article about the Shutter Vibration with the Electronic First Curtain Shutter on the A7rII:

The lack of shutter vibration possible with an EFC shutter means that any ultra high performance but physicall awkward or large lens like Zeiss Otus or even long teles like the Leica 280mm f/4 APO-Telyt-R can be shot with superb results and no fear of damage to sharpness by shutter vibration. (and Again on a second article): This is serious value from the IBIS technology and two compelling reasons that some shooters are best off abandoning the DSLR.

High ISO A7rII comparison at Newshooter:

From the outset, it is clear that the full frame mode on the a7RII isn’t as good as the a7S. The image is quite noisy and doesn’t compare well to the a7S. At all ISOs from 3200 onwards the a7S bests it and I would not use the a7R II this way.

(SR1) New detailed APS-C E-mount flagship camera specs?

Share

large_A6100

Like I told you yesterday I have many doubts about those rumored E-mount camera specs. And we got even more info from the same source I want to share. But again, I see low chance these are correct. The source claims that this is a new APS-C camera model placed above the current A6000. Read his message here:

It has a new 24MP sensor with ISO range of 100-51,200.
15fps continuous shooting with AF.
30fps continuous shooting in “4K Mode”. This is similar to Panasonic 4K Photo Mode.
Still no touchscreen, but it has a new 2.8M dot OLED EVF. Rear monitor is 3″ 1.04M dot and is now fully articulating.
Mic input support.
It will have lots of exciting video features previously not seen on Sony APS-C cameras.
This camera will be placed above A6000 and target users that need both stills and video features. A6000 will continue to be sold as is.

It certainly sounds exciting! And it would be nice if Sony would finally keep pushing the APS-C E-mount system too! We really need a more affordable and also smaller mirrorless system camera.

Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS Lens Review

FE35 2.8 ZA Lens Hood fail (SonyAlphaForum).

Alexander:Maybe your readers might be interested how the video looks like with the new codec: https://vimeo.com/132654072. I said a few things about it on my blog: http://passportsandlenses.com/los-angeles-making-of-sigma-50mm-1-4-art-review-sony-a6000-xavc-s-test/

J.C.:I got a lens for a very good price from Amazon & I am so amazed by the proformance VS the cost, I thought every e-mount user should own one ! I have a lot of lens like konica,minolta, sony, zeiss , & more that I shoot daily.This new lens rivals some of my best& outperforms many that cost much more!  The lens is an 85mm F1.8 all manual, solid build metal& glass lens with hood & caps, brand new with E-Mount Adaptor for 109.00USD from Opteka. It comes in cannon EF mount, hence the Fotoga EF too Emount Adaptor.
