There is a new Amazon Gold Box deal on the Sony NEX-5t kit (Click here). It sells for $424 only!
SAR reader Bruce contacted Sigma UK and asked them when they actually do plan to ship the 24-105mm and 600mm A-mount lenses. The answer he got from Sigma UK is:
At this stage, we do not have any further information I’m afraid, we are awaiting the updates currently ourselves at this stage unfortunately.
A77II: Up to $500 off on the body and kits at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto and SonyStore.
A6000: $100 off on the body and kits at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto and SonyStore.
A5100: $100 off on the body and kits at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto and SonyStore.
A5000: $100 off on the body and kits at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto and SonyStore.
Fstopper tested the new Fotodiox mount and writes:
For me, the Tough E-Mount is a winner. I was easily able to fix a bothersome wiggle at home in less that five minutes. If the all-metal mount really does increase strength over Sony’s mount as Fotodiox claims, all the better; but not the reason that many are buying it for.

I took this on the A7r and Sony FE 70-200 F4. I literally just sold my entire Canon setup including a C100 and 5d mark 3 for an A7s and A7r. I’ve been looking for opportunities to test the a7r before my next paid shoot, and saw this herd of bison just off the freeway on the outskirts of Fort Worth. I couldn’t resist pulling over, and I’m glad I did! The amount of dynamic range and detail I can pull from the shadows is ridiculous, and it completely blows my Canon system out of the water in this regard.
