Next Sony patent describing a translucent mirror lockup mechanism.

Share

.

Egami spotted the second Sony patent describing a semitransparent mirror that can be locked up to get rid of the small light loss. But I still don’t know if that is going to be used by the future A77II or A99II successor cameras. What I know for sure is that in the mid-term Sony will get rid of the semitransparent mirror as soon as the A6000 hybrid AF system proves to be as good as the current SLT solution!

P.S.: A77II will be announced next week (May 1). Likely specs: 24MP, 11fps, Wifi, super fast af, $1200 price.

(SR3) Sigma is on fire: 24mm f/1.4 ART lens coming at Photokina.

Share

Sigma wants to keep the momentum and they are “rumored” to launch a new high quality 24mm f/1.4 ART lens in September/October. It will be priced above the new 50mm ART lens (price $949 at Amazon or 999 Euro WexDE or 849 pounds at WexUK). This would be an exciting lens! As current alternative we have the Rokinon 24mm f/1.4  E-mount and A-mount manual focusing lens. But the Sigma will be for sure much better and autofocus!

Note: The current (superb) 50mm f/1.4 ART lens for A-mount can be preordered in USA Amazon (Click here) at BHphoto (Click here) and Adorama (Click here). and in Europe at WexUK (Click here) and WexDe (Click here).
