Digicaminfo found that picture showing a brand new A99 with 24-70mm lens package. The mark clearly says A99 and “SAL2470Z” which stays for the 24-70mm f/2.8 Zeiss. The good news here is that we can expect to save some bucks on that combo. There are already some A99 and 24-70mm combos for sale on eBay (Click here) but these are two separated packages and you don’t save a penny on them.
UPDATE: As noticed by our reader JVS the package is sold by Sony Australia!
The Sony NEX-5r has been testd by Digitalcamerainfo: “While the most heavily publicized features (picture effects, self-portrait LCD, Wi-Fi uploading to Facebook) might paint this camera as an entry level model, the hardware and performance are more high-end than you may have guessed. And since Sony has plans to improve the E-mount family this year (cross your fingers), the 5R is an easy recommendation as a first system camera, or even an inexpensive backup camera for pros.”
Initial A99 review at Chromasia: “As I guess you’ve already worked out, I’m seriously impressed with the SLT-A99. The image quality is superb, it has a great range of features, and no real negatives, at least none that have any major impact on my style/type of photography. As such I have no problem recommending this camera.” SonyAlphaLab keeps testing the NEX-6

SAR reader James (Thanks!) spotted the UK’s “Guardian” top 10 digital cameras article. And they picke up the NEX-5R and the RX100.

The camera shipment in Asia just started. And if you want to save some money avoid to buy the expensive original Sony RX1 hood ($179 at Adorama). A $6 cheap chinese metal hood will do it (there is one here on eBay).
NEX lenses: Sony China (translation here) just posted posted the info about new firmware version 02 for the SEL1855 / SEL18200 / SEL55210 / SEL24F18Z NEX lenses. It’s a firmware upgrade for the NEX-5R or NEX-6 only! It enables the phase difference AF using the pixel function “Fast hybrid AF”.
Focus Numerique (translation here) just posted the RX1 JPE. FN noted that the Sony RX1 has significant overexposure (about 2/3 EV in too). They are surprised with the high image quality: ” Even ISO 3200 images retain an excellent outfit with a little grain present, light-colored and very gentle smoothing. ” and “Even at ISO 12800, there or Alpha 99 start to lose its pixels, the RX1 is still very powerful, even if smoothing is naturally more sensitive.It is possible to push the compact with up to 25600 ISO image quality quite amazing. ”

Hi there, Long time lurker/first time poster here.

I just purchased this lens used, and it randomly started making an abnormal sound. It doesn't consistently do this, and will stop if I turn the camera off and then turn it back on. I haven't been able to find out any information about why this might be happening Watch the first 15 seconds of […]
