István:We are a human rights watchdog NGO inBudapest and produce international and hungarian human rights related online videos. All our cameras are Sony. We taught ourselves and now our human rights experts are capable of
handling the VG10 and 20 to make their own films. One example is our award winning short film about the human rights costs of the global drug war: Another example is a private short video about hummingbirds, that I shot on the Sony VG10 while having a break between interviewing in mexico City:

Alec: “I just got the Sony 135mm STF, here is the first batch I took:

Laurent:This is a work done with the last NEX-7:

Freddy: “Just a little video test of my lovely A57

Bob:Here is a video shot with the Nex-7, 5n, and some VG20. Also, I use the Nex-7 for all of my Commercial Photography now. I use it for furniture product & lifestyle shots with the help of RadioPoppers.

Tarmo:NEX-3 on Flickr. NEX-7 on Flickr, SEL18200 on Flickr, SEL16F28 on Flickr, SEL1855 on Flickr.”

First Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 image samples (not soooo bad!)

While we are waiting for the late August announcement that will bring us some new NEX lens from Sony let’s take a look to that new 35mm f/0.95 Mitakon lens with E-mount. Someon at Mflens forum found those pics made with the production version of the Mitakon lens. Those are all pics taken at f/0.95 aperture with the NEX-5n. Click on the pics to open the full size image.

P.S. You can find plenty of Mitakon lenses on eBay (Click here). And they outsource to SLRmagic too. Example:
SLR Magic 35mm f/1.7 MC (here on eBay).
SLR Magic Toy Lens 28mm Bokehmorphic lens (here on eBay).
SLR Magic HyperPrime 50mm f/0.95 (here on eBay).
SLR Magic 28mm f/2.8 lens (here on eBay).

(SR3) A possible protoype list…(36 MPX cam, PRO NEX, hybrid videocamera, 400mm lens)

“Someone” sent me this Sony prototype report. As usual take this kind of info with a grain of salt. I re-wrote the text to hide the original writing style:

There are many “Pro” prototypes. Some A mount some E mount plus a “hybrid” 1/2 camera 1/2 videocamera. There is also a super 400 f2.8 and a CZ  70-200 f2.8. They tested the PRO cameras without AA filter and all it did was moire everywhere…but crazy sharp. One of the PRO camera protptypes uses a 36 Megapixel sensor and the early sensor ones overheated. Sony will go from NEX 1 to NEX 11 – so the Pro body E series will probably be ready after Photokina. By the way…what happens when you go beyond A99? Go to early numbers!

So basically, we will have a 36 Megapixel PRO camera in 2013, a new hybrid video and still camera, a 400mm lens a new 70-200mm zoom and a PRO NEX very likely coming in 2013. Sounds interesting that Sony tried to remove the AA filter. Something Nikon has done with the D800E and Fuji with the X PRO 1. But I don’t think they will release a model like that.
