Double press event from Sony: Friday Sept 12 (4K cam), Monday 15 Sept (A and E-mount lenses).

FacebookShare

Press 1: On Friday Sony will announce the new 4K camcorder leaked last week. They may show the 2500 Euro expensive 28-135mm f/4.0 powerzoom too.

Press 2: The next press conference follows on Monday Sept 15 at 16:00 Berlin time. That’s when we will get the other new A and E-mount lenses like the 35 1.4(G/ZA) and 70-300G II A-mount and the 16-35mm FE and 90mm macro FE lens. Also an updated FE lens roadmap with 85mm lens included for 2015 release. Where I am still not 100% sure yet is the camera list. Best candidates are the A99II and new RX camera. But the bigger news is coming after Photokina and about that I will write and publish a post soon!

First Otus lens tests: Diglloyd says “sets a new standard all its own”.

FacebookShare

Otus 1.4/85 ZF.2

Diglloyd posted his first impressions about the new Zeiss Otus 85mm lens:

The Otus 85/1.4 APO-Planar delivers the most transparently beautiful imagery I have ever seen on a DSLR…Including medium format Leica S, and the best Pentax medium format lens, the 90/2.8 macro. The Otus 85mm /1.4 APO-Planar sets a new standard all its own.

The Swedish site Fotosidan (google translation here) posted a short comparison with the Nikon 85mm lens:

Some bright lenses are deliberately drawing a soft at maximum aperture to get nice and soft background blur (bokeh). Zeiss has managed to combine high clarity with nice bokeh, see example image.

The lens can be preorderd at BHphoto with Nikon mount (Click here) or Canon mount (Click here) version.

UPDATE: RAW image samples can be downloaded at Mattgranger.com/otus85mm

(SR3) Is there a 90mm FE macro lens coming too?

FacebookShare

An anonymous source told me Sony will announce a 90mm macro FE lens at Photokina. Asking now my sources if they can confirm this or not. Thanks!

P.S.: According to Sony’s roadmap that kind of lens is really coming. Hope the fast (85mm 1.4?) prime is going to be announced too!
