(SR5) UPDATED: Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 to be announced tomorrow (Sept 8). Price is $4,490.00!

FacebookShare

UPDATE: The lens can be preorderd at BHphoto in the Nikon mount (Click here) and Canon mount (Click here) version.

One of our very good Zeiss sources (Many thanks man!) just told us that the new Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 will be announced tomorrow (September 8). And it will cost 500 Euro more than the current Zeiss Otus 55mm lens (around 3445 Euro here on eBay). UPDATE: I have been told US price is $4,490.00!

The price is justified by the fact that the new 85mm Otus is really “much better” than the current 55mm Otus!

Current E-mount camera owners with plenty of $$$ on their bank account could be tempted to buy that. Otherwise wait for cheaper and still amazing good 85mm FE lens that is likely to come next year :)

Sony announces BSI sensor with 10x sensitivity than the previous generation!

FacebookShare

An image taken by the newly-developed camera using infrared light in the dark (right) and an image taken by an existing camera (source: Sony)

Nikkei reports that Sony will announce a new BSI sensor 10 times as sensitive than the previous generation. The sensor suits perfectly for security cameras and capable of shooting subjects in an environment with an illuminance of zero lux! Another interesting feature that we may see in photography cameras is that one:

Moreover, the cameras synthesize two images taken at different shutter speeds for the same frame and, therefore, can take images by preventing blown out highlights and crushed blacks.

Sounds damn good!
