Techradar (Click here) just posted a new review. Of course do they like the camera but I want to higlight one of the very few negative points about the camera: “A lightweight CSC with a 24.3Mp sensor may be ideally suited to landscape photographers, but the lack of a suitable wide-angle optic may be just as off-putting as the camera is tempting. This is a real shame, because the lightweight design of the body and the excellent resolving power of the sensor should make this an ideal application for this camera.” Oh yes, the camera has no real faults, we need the right lenses now Sony. That’s it.
There is one more NEX-7 review written by WhatDigitalCamera (Click here): “With high expectations the NEX-7 succeeds on many levels, but with the CSC market highly competitive this high-priced model does also finds its limitations where focusing and design are concerned. Saying that, the NEX-7 is an impressive mix of features, high-resolution image quality and excellent 1080p movie mode. For some it’ll be the perfect camera, though with an ‘indefinite delay’ due to production problems you may want to get those pre-orders in to be among the first to own one…“.
The NEX-7 is far still far away from being shipped but I am happy to own my tiny sexy black Sony NEX-5n. I am currently using one lens only, my Nokton 35mm f/1.4. But I am ready to test more M-mount lenses. The Nokton is a soft creamy lens, not exactly sharp that’s why I am looking for something as small as the Nokton but much more sharper. And the solution could be the Minolta Rokkor 40mm f/2.0 lens. It looks gorgeous on a NEX camera (Click here to see it at golftoimpress.com). Really small and high quality lens!
I found many image samples on Flickr. Images look very sharp and with nice tonality and contrast. I didn’t find any professional review of the NEX and Rokkor combo. If you find something drop me a message or comment this post thanks!
The Minolta Rokkor 40mm f/2.0 pancake can be found for $500 used on eBay (Click here).
Every day it’s more and more difficult to find the A77 in Stock. It’s sold out in all Sony stores (yes from all over the world!). And it is now sold out at Amazon US and Amazon UK. But SAR readers are continually helping us to find the remaining A77 (thanks!). Here is where you can find the A77 in Stock:
Yesterday I told you that A77 stocks were almost finished. But I didn’t think it would be sold out that soon! I check all major US online stores and the only A77 I found in Stock is the super A77 kit at Amazon (Click here). To bad it’s out of Stock. The camera reached the 8th position at Amazon ranking (Click here). I would have been curious to see if it would have gone close to the top Nikon and Canon camera volume sales! P.S.: The NEX-5n is the most sold camera in the mirrorless setion (Click here).
Here is the complete A77 shop link list. Only some european and asian stores are still having cameras in Stock:
So here we are! I collected and summed your full frame lens suggestion made two weeks ago. As you can imagine I had to simplify the list (otherwise we would have something like 300 lenses in the poll!). Here are the things you have to know before you vote:
1) Please think before to vote and be honest! Be aware that Zeiss lenses and fast lenses will be sometimes very expensive! So vote only if you really would buy it! 2) The poll is not scientific and has a general value only. The goal is to give Sony an overview of what focal length and what aperture future full frame lenses should have. 3) The sum of all percentages you see after any lens option is higher than 100%. This happens because every voters can vote many lenses. Example: If a lens has an overall score of 34% this means that of all voters 34% voted that lens. 4) All lenses are SSM and full frame! 5) Don’t be angry with me if you don’t find the exact lens you wanted as option in this poll. What matters is the general impression. So please vote lenses that are as close as it gets to your preferred choice.
Select a maximum of seven lenses Sony should absolutely release!
