Tamron SP 15-30mm MTF charts (beats the much more expensive Nikon).

FacebookShare

006

We have first info about the new Tamron SP 15-30mm A-mount lens. Image samples can be seen at DC.watch. And there is also a full MTF chart posted by BlogNaver (found via Dicahub). It’s interesting to look at the chart because the lens is rumored to resolve the future Sony 50Megapixel FF sensor resolution:

A012MTF_J_E_4c_20140826_b

The MTF resolution is impressive even at widest aperture. And also on the telephoto end the resolution remains high. By comparison here is the MTF chart of the AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm F2.8G ED lens:

 

nikon-14-24mm-mtf

The Tamron has no official US price yet but it’s rumored to be around $1,500. So much cheaper than the Nikon. The Tamron A-mount lens is listed at BHphoto (Click here) and should be available soon for preorder.

Japanese company Shoten launches metal ring mount replacement for E-mount cameras.

FacebookShare

Bildschirmfoto 2014-12-26 um 18.38.43

The Japanese company Shoten launched a new full metal ring mount replacement for E-mount cameras. It works just like the recently launched Fotodiox metal ring mount (here on Amazon). The ring is nt needed for the newer A7s and A7II cameras. And I guess all future new E-mount cameras will come with stronger mount rings too.

Cheapest E-mount camera gets cheaper: A3000 with lens for $298. And triple SD card deals.

FacebookShare

A3000

The A3000 with kit lens got a new $50 off and sells now for $298 only at Amazon US (Click here). Although I didn’t get solid rumors yet I really believe the A3000 will get a successor during next spring.

P.S.: Adorama offers a triple special on Sandisk (Click here), Transcend (Click here) and Lexar cards (Click here).

Reminder:
15% credit you get when trading in a camera for the A7/r/s or Fe lenses at BHphoto (Click here to see the special page).
If you trade-in an older camera you could now pay down to $950 only for the new A7 at Adorama trade-in (Click here).
