New Sony A7rII is coming: What should be the improvements?

FacebookShare

A7r

The Sony A7rII specs are kept secret in Sony Japan headquarters. And while I am trying to get through that secrecy wall let us all know what you hope to get with the new A7rII. That’s my personal improvement list:
– Silent shutter mode
– “uncompressed” RAW
– Phase detection AF
– Same grip and improved button layout of the A7II
– Same 5 axis stabilization as the A7II
– Improved battery life

And you?

Brand new Sony FE 28mm lens tests!

FacebookShare

FE28mm

We have a triple review of the new 28mm lens. The lens is already shipping in Asia (Digitalrev) and Germany (eBay). Preorders at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto. And Sony Germany, UK, FR, IT, ES, NL, BE, AT, CH, SE, FI, NO, PT. So let’s take a look at how good the lens is:

DSLRmagazine (google translation here) posted the full FE 28mm lens review:

– There is significant Vignetting and Distortion on RAW files. JPG files are very well corrected.
– Reliable and relatively fast autofocusing
– Extraordinary anti flare resistance
– Tonal range and detail are excellent
– High resolution in the center. It’s ok in the corner
– Overall this is a very good lens for the price even if relies heavily on in camera correction fo Vignetting and Distortion.

DR.F0x posted a lens review on Deviantart. And in very short these are his key findings:

This build of this lens is great with full metal. At minimum focus distance and wide open (F2), the sharpness is acceptable, which is not as sharp as the SEL 50mm f/1.8. Quite strong CA at wide open and it’s gone completely at f/4. At closest focus distance, the bokeh is smooth, but at longer distance, it’s not very great.

Sony FE 28/2 First Impressions Review at BackgroundandBlur:

At 200 grams this lens is half the weight and a fraction of the bulk of the equivalent Nikon 28mm f/1.8G. Sony has really pulled something off here. At the price it should be a no brainer for most A7 users. Together with the Sony Zeiss FE 55/1.8, A7 users now have two fast and high quality autofocus primes for the system. An in-depth review is coming soon, after I spend some more time with this lens.
