(SR5) Sony A5100 will have the same A6000 sensor and superfast autofocus.


Two trusted sources told us the Sony A5100 will feature the exact same sensor of the Sony A6000. It means it will have that super fast autofocusing in a smaller and cheaper package. Sounds good to me!
I also have been told the camera Body and LCD screen will be the same of the Nex-5t (with touch screen).

No other E or A or RX camera will be announced on August 19. For that you have to wait a couple of days more ;)

Mitakon already launches a new “PRO” version of the Speedmasteer 50mm f/0.95 FE lens.


This is a small surprise: Mitakon already announced a new “PRO” version of the superfast 50mm f/0.95 Speedmaster Full Frame E-mount lens! The current version sells for $849 at BHphoto or $899 on eBay. The lens will be named “The Dark Knight” and have these three major upgrades:

1. Improved lens coating, which makes the lens have better performance
2. Filter thread changed to 67mm from 58mm
3. New bayonet lens hood to prevent light flare and improve “back light “s situation performance.

Note that the current “non-PRO” version is pretty good: 3dKraft (Click here) just posted his Speedmaster 50/0.95 vs. SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 50mm T0.95 comparison!
