New Sony A35 review

The British website Trustedreviews (Click here) posted the final Sony A35 test: “While attention is naturally drawn to the super-fast AF and continuous shooting abilities of the A35, what really impresses is overall image quality“. Don’t forget to read the full test to see why they like the camera!
Also CNET Asia (Click here) tested the same camera: “The A35 is a subtle update to the Alpha range of SLRs and while it won’t be a game-changer, it’s certainly good at what it doe“. On their website you can see a couple of image/video samples and tests.

The new Sony A35 is in Stock at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.

There is no day without having a Sony leak! This is the new picture of the NEX-5N with external EVF. Looks good or not?

The new EVF has 2,4 million dots and intelligent eye sensor. The bad news is that it works on the NEX-5N only, and not on the “older NEX”.

Everything (NEX-7, NEX-5N, VG-20, external EVF, 24mm f/1.8 Zeiss, 50mm f/1.8 OSS, 55-210mm OSS, A77, A65, vertical grip, 16-50mm f/2.8) will be announced on August 24 at around 6-7 am London time. be sure to be here on SonyAlphaRumors to follow the announcement live!

Veyr first E-mount Noktor 50mm f/0.95 test by Steve Huff

That is a beats of a lens! The picture shows the Noktor 50mm f/0.95. But how good (or bad) performs the lens in the real world? Steve Huff (Click here to read the review) tested the lens on the new Sony NEX-C3. You can see many image smaples on his website and all I am going to report here is that the lens perfroms better than the m43 version fo the Noktor. Steve Huff is also giving away one lens for free!

You can get the current 28mm and 35mm lenses from SLR magic on eBay (Click here). The Noktor is available on their homepage (Click here).

I am continually getting small details from many sources. Those are the latest few bits:

The EVF menu is customizable and is as bright as the optical viewfinder from the Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBayA900[/shoplink]!
Almost all operations can be done with the eye on the EVF
Smart teleconverter (1.2x and 2.0x digital magnification)
Has Picture effects, A-HDR, Creative style
50ms minimum release time lag
Very good audio noise reduction
A77 weights 680g and A65 weights 543g
