One of the strangest new products of the Photokina show is the new Voigtlander 40mm f/2.8 Heliar lens. The strange part is that one: It’s an M-mount lens that you can not(!) use on M-mount cameras (no helicoid to focus). It has been designed to use in combination with the VM-E Close Focus Adapter (here on eBay) only. And it has been designed and optimized for the Full Frame E-mount(!). The lens is very compact and weights 112grams only. It’s a collapsible lens.

Here is the full press text:

Sony confirms again A-mount keeps going on. And me working on A-mount rumors…

FacebookShare

In an interview with DC.watch Sony confirmed once again A-mount development is going on. And that’s also the kind of info I keep “receiving” from trusted and anonymous sources. I am trying to get some more reliable detailed info about the possible future A-mount stuff release. Let’s hope I can post more “solid” rumors soon!

Short note to readers and sources (patience with news posting)

FacebookShare

Just a short note to ask for some patience to readers and sources who sent me news and rumor the last 10 days. I will post ALL I got but I need time to work on the material I received. Please keep in mind that unlike other big sites this is an amateur-hobby site. I do not work full-time here but only 1-2 hours per day on average. Thanks for your understanding :)

One more rumor: I am working on many A and E-mount info I got the last weeks. I repeat it again: There is an exciting event in January. Megapixel rush coming :)

This is how much fun you can have while testing Sony A7s slow motion video :)

FacebookShare

Those strange guys thought to test the Sony A7s slow motion feature by acting crazy. Well, it’s more funny than many other boring slow motion videos showing water drops, a cat moving around the house or so on :)

Sony A7s store links:
Sony A7s in USA/CA at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Sony USA, Sony Canada.
Sony A7s in Eu at Sony DE, UK, ES, FR, IT, NL, BE, AT, CH, SE, NO, FI, PL. And Wex UK.

First preview of the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 VC Full Frame lens!

FacebookShare

Matt Granger is the first guy who was able to take some shots with the new Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 VC Full Frame lens. He tested the lens on a Canon but the lens will be available for A-mount too. The lens has a new “super aspherical” element and Tamron’s goal is to beat the Canon 16-35mm and Nikon 14-24mm lens performance. And the 15-30mm will be cheaper than those (final price yet unknown).

Well, from what we see from Matt’s short testing that lens really looks like a winner. Let’s hope that unlike Sigma we will get the Tamron A-mount version the same day as the Canon and Nikon version release!
