This is a first video sample shot on that fantastic new 4K E-mount FS7. XDcam-User writes:
Where this camera will be really good is when combined with the new 28-135mm f4 servo zoom lens. Typically par-focal lenses with this kind aperture and zoom ratio cost in excess of $30K. The FS7 combined with this lens will be a killer combination and that’s why I have ordered one.

And to promote 4K Sony Germany had the strange idea to show how bubble freeze :) The effect is quite cool although I don’t see what’s the 4K advantage here. But that doesn’t matter i guess…it’s all about going viral here:

Berlin Backstage (google translation here) tested both Loxia lenses and explained that these lenses are completely different from the current 35 and 55 FE from Sony. With the Loxia you will approach the photography in a complete other way. These lenses are made for manual focusing lovers! For Berlin-Backstage Zeiss was 100% spot on to release those focal length lenses first!
DearSuasans tested the 50mm Loxia:
It is not a spectacular lens, like a Macro when it comes to detail, or the FE55 when it comes to sharpness, but it just does everything so well. Colours are first rate. Detail is excellent, including at infinity. Sharpness is excellent.
Hands-on and few image samples at Bestmirrorlesscamerareviews:
When Zeiss made the announcement, I couldn’t help but wonder why they decided to release two focal lengths that already exist in Sony’s AF series…But after trying them today, I have to admit that my first impressions are really positive about the two lenses. The image quality they produce seems really exceptional on both the A7r and A7s. But most importantly, they perfectly suit Sony’s full frame mirrorless system because they are small and therefore enhance the portability of the system.
P.S.: The Loxia 50mm is alreayd shipping in Germany (like here on eBay).
