The new Zeiss 16-35mm FE is now shipping almost everywhere and I keep receiving more and more tests. First of all see the picture on top to see how much smaller the A7+Zeiss combo is compared to equivalent Canon and Nikon kits. Also note that DxOmark ranked the Zeiss as best here (although it beats the Nikon only by a hair). And here the new tests:

(SR2) Sony quits the Cybershot line and keeps RX and QX line only?

Share


Image made by Usperedi.

I don’t know if that makes sense but apparently there has been a big decision taken by Sony. They could soon announce the “termination” of the entire Cybershot line. All resources will move to the RX and QX line development. According to the source this decision has already been made and we will not be seeing any more Cybershots from this point onwards. But for now this rumor is rated with a low SR2 level. Hope Trusted Sources will confirm (or deny) the rumor after reading this. Thanks!

What you see here on top is actually the first digital “Mirrorless” Medium Format camera. Phase One will soon launch new digital backs for the Alpa Medium Format cameras (here one eBay). Phase One is also using  the Sony 50MP CMOS sensor on the A250 back (there are also two more backs with CCD sensors). This is the first Sony sensor “mirrorless” medium format camera ;)
