Sony A580 review by Cgarrard (part two)


Cgarrard from Alphamountworld published the second part of the Sony A580 review: “Sony’s A580 is the most fun to use DSLR that Sony has produced to date. I’ve used every Sony DSLR they have manufactured, owned most of them, but this one has yet to leave my side.” And how does the A580 compare with the Translucent A55? “In comparison to the SLT series I believe that less video and a couple other mentionables, the A580 is a superior value to an Alpha photographer.

As you know Cgarrard lately critized Sony products strategy. So the fact he likes the A580 a lot is good news for us and for Sony ;)

And the good news is that unlike the A55 the A580 is in Stock almost everywhere:
Amazon, BHphoto, Adorama, Amazon DE, Amazon FR, Pixmania DE, Pixmania BE, Pixmania AT, Pixmania UK, Pixmania NL, Pixmania PL, Pixmania IT.

Is the Fuji X100 using a Sony CMOS sensor?


Image courtesy: Quesabesde

One of the most popular cameras on the world wide web is the Fuji X100 prototype (yes it’s not on market now!). And I just read an interesting Interview on Quesabesde where Hiroshi Kawahara, Operations Manager at Fujifilm Electronic Imaging Products Division talks about the FinePix X100:

Question: It has been said that the sensor used is similar to that seen in some Nikon SLR cameras, and therefore manufactured by Sony. Can this information be confirmed?
Answer: The sensor of the FinePixX100 is customized to match its lens. We should point out that the most important thing is not who produces the technology but the technology in itself, and in this sense Fujifilm optimizes its technologies depending on the photographic result being pursued at any given time.

So after Nikon and Pentax now even Fuji is using Sony sensors? It would be nice if Fuji could give us something back, would love to see a NEX camera with that cool Hybrid Viewfinder!

Sony Tidbits (With lots of new Lens reviews!)

Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 SSM review at Photozone: “The Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 SSM G can give you very good results on a full format DSLR but it is not a lens without issues.”

DSLRmagazine tested the Sony 16mm E-mount lens. Interesting, they compared the pre-production 16mm lens with the final production version. Good news, the lens we buy is much better!

Today I read the article where Ken Rockwell criticizes the Sony lenses. But maybe he should took a look at the following two tested by Photozone! Both lenses do deliver a very good and in case of the Zeiss an impressive image quality!

Zeiss ZA Distagon T* 24mm f/2 SSM

The Zeiss Distagon T* 24mm f/2 SSM may not be as fast as its Canon and Nikon counterparts but it’s capable of delivering a better image quality at comparable aperture settings.

The Sony 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 SSM G impressed during our APS-C format test and it is capable of delivering high quality results within the full format scope as well.
