Some more info about the Contax G to E-mount adapter (coming in February)

Share

I just got an email from Camera MX with a link to a new youtube video and a delivery estimation of the new Contax G to E-mount adapter: “We believe we can launch this adapter around Feb. One more thing, Contax G16mm and G21mm cannot used on this CONTAX G – SONY NEX AF adapter. If you want to use G21 with this, you must cut the rear lens flange. G16 cannot use on it. In future, international version is renamed as “DEO TECHART” or “DEO”

Short Sony news roundup:
ThePhoBlographer posted the full Zeiss 135mm f/1.8 lens review: “Not only is it super sharp, but it is extremely well built and focuses fairly fast. When the images are ready to be imported into your post-processing software of choice, you’ll have little work to do aside from some retouching.

Murat:I video recorded these scenes here in Hawaii with my Sony nex 6 with 50mm f/1.8 lens and also with the new 16-50mm power zoom. This is not a time lapse footage out of photos.
I recorded 60p videos as avchd and later on premiere speeded up the footage 800% for a creamier look. It was an extremely windy day. I had to park my car against the wind the protect my camera on the tripod. Still it is not 100% steady. But it looks good overall. I did not color correct nor sharpen the footage. http://youtu.be/hZdgVkYlq4Q

A99 price drops to $2,550 at BigValue…

The A99 price dropped down to $2,550 at BigValue (on eBay). That’s now $250 less than the regular price. Still not a huge price drop like we had on the Nikon FF cameras but we are getting there…slowly :)

Small price drops are also ongoing at Wex and eBay Europe. I think another $200-300 price drop would help Sony to significantly increase the camera sales. But that’s of course just a instinct based opinion. Sony will know it better what they need to push the camera sales.

First video of the Contax to E-mount AF adapter!

As you know we now have three AF E-mount adapters for the Canon EOS lenses. But most of these lenses are big and certainly not a valuable solution if you need to be “Light”. So it may interest you to know that a new Contax G AF adapter is coming too! And the video on top proves you that it actually works. It will be soon sold by MXcamera on their own direct eBay Store (Click here to see).

And here you see the list of great G lenses with links to eBay price:
