Another A99 review (and an info about cheap A99 UK deal).

Share

SAR reader Dave (Thanks!) made this image to show you how Apples compare to Apples :)   Check the A99 review at Dpreview. Also ePhotozine posted a new A99 review and it got a “Highly Recommended” mark.

A warning for EU readers: As you knwo ther eis that crazy 2200 Euro price on the A99 at ukbnsuk on eBay (Click here). Our reader “Arismakr” (Thanks!) got some info about the store: “The camera is an “NTSC only” model and that means PAL is not an option for European buyers. As you may understand there will be a problem with video playback in Europe. They also told me that the box is not sealed whatever that means

Soudns like they improt the camera from cheaper Asian stores!

New Sigma 35mm f/1.4 keeps receiving lot of appraisals!

 

The new Sigma 35mm f/1.4 lens keeps surprising the reviewers:
DSLRmagaizne (translation here) tested the lens on a Canon and writes that it has a “superb optical performance“.
Lenstip also tested the lens: “The Sigma has the best results of all 1.4/35 lenses, tested by us so far in the categories of resolution, distortion, chromatic aberration and coma correction.

This may be one of the nicest new lenses you can get for the A-mount system. And soon we hope to see that new Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 too :)

4 years Warranty on the RX1 at Amazon (and Gold Box deal on Cybershot and Rokinon).

There is a Total 4 years Warranty on the RX1 purchase via Shutterbugs at Amazon (Click here). Nice deal but I guess in four years from now you will be already a happy FF NEX owner or not? :)

And today we have two new Sony Gold Box deals. You will get 50% off on a couple of Cybershot cameras (Click here to see the list) and there is a Gold Box deal on the 8mm Rokinon for NEX at Amazon (you save $100).

Last deal: Sony NEX-5R super kit at Adorama (Click here).

NEX-6 review at Engadget and SonyAlphaLab.


Image courtesy: DC.watch.

One of the nicest new cameras we had in 2012 is certainly the NEX-6. And the image posted by DC.watch (you see it on top) makes it look even more beautiful :) They tested the NEX-6 with the great looking (and superbly manufactured) Ricoh GR  21mm f/3.5 which is such a hard to find lens that there is no even one single auction on eBay.

That said we have two new complete NEX-6 reviews at Engadget and SonyAlphaLab. And the camera gets lot of positive feedback from both reviewers. There is also a new Sony NEX-5R review at Cnet Asia.

Now let’s see what’s coming soon from the NEX front. The 85mm f/1.8 and what else?

Reminder: The luxury leather case producer Gariz announced a new case for the NEX-5r and NEX-6!
NEX-5R: You can buy it on their eBay store (Click here). There is also a Light Brown (Click here) and Brown (Click here) version. Gariz has also some other little leather accesories for the NEX-5r like lens cap and bags (look here via Slidoo eBay).
NEX-6: Gariz also released three different NEX-6 case: Brown (Click here), Black (Click here) and AllBlack (Click here). (full list at Slidoo).

(SR4) Sony to announce new “photographic” products in early January.

 

Your really will not have to wait a long time to see some new stuff from Sony. Trusted sources just informed us that Sony scheduled a new product announcement for early January. You may know that the CES show starts on January 8th. What you don’t have to expect is a FF NEX or a FF SLT. What you certainly will see is new compact cameras. I am still not sure if the new A-mount lenses (18-270mm and 50mm Zeiss) will be released now or in February. And so the 85mm f/1.8 E-mount lens.

Will let you know as soon as I get a note form trusted sources! Stay tuned on SAR! Subscribe the RSS feed (Click here) and Twitter (Click here) stream and the Facebook fan page (Click here)!
