Sony is the only company without a product announcement at CP+. Your thoughts?

Well, Sony decided to literally skip the CP+ show and is as far as I know the only major photo company not having announced a new camera or lens. But also the other companies kept a low profile (Read Engadget articles about that). Canon’s 5ds will ship in June only and all other manufacturers did show many prototypes and much less “real” production cameras.

Just like it happened with the A7II launch Sony seems to prefer to launch major stuff off the big show to get more publicity. And here is the question to our SAR readers:

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

New FE lens videos and a 3D view from the Sony booth.


Newsshooter at CP+ Tokyo 2015- Sony FE 24-240mm F3.5-6.3 lens first look
from Matthew Allard ACS on Vimeo.

Newsshooter also posted a hands-on video and report with the 24-240mm FE lens:

I had a quick hands on with the lens at CP+ and while it looked to perform well from around 24-100mm, it did look noticeably softer at the far end of the focal range. Build quality was average but it was nice to handle and use.

And there we have also new “Estonian” hands-on videos:

Canon Pokes Fun on Nikon and (indirectly) Sony because they now have less pixels!



At Cp+ Canon is Pokes Fun on Nikon and (indirectly) Sony because their new Canon 5ds has more Pixels than the D800 series and Sony A7r. Well, I refuse to make any comments on this :)

P.S.: Canon even showed a new 120MP sensor prototype (Mirrorlessrumors).
