POLL: Select your future A77 firmware upgrade must have features.

It’s time for you to select the most needed new features and fixes that should be implemented in future A77 firmware upgrades. I summed your requests and tried to make an easy overview of your suggested changes. You guys gave a terrific long list of new features and bug fixes (Click here to read your comments). I choose to sum the display your most requested only because otherwise the list would have become incredibly long. This is not a scientific test! It should only give a very general idea about what Sony should do more urgently.

So while almost all you features and bug fix suggestion were interesting let’s vote the ten only of them that Sony should absolutely do now!

Select the most important firmware upgrade features/fixes for the A77 (you have a maximum of 10 votes)

One more private note: By the time you are reading this I am starting my three days mountain trip. I will stay between 2500 and 3500 meter for two nights. I don’t know if I can have Internet access with my iPhone in these days. I scheduled a couple of news that will get online between now and Sunday. Hope to come back alive ;) I am writing this because some comments awaiting for moderation will need some time to be approved. Plus emails can be answered on late Sunday only.

Zeiss 24mm for NEX is back(!) in Stock at Amazon and in Europe! (+ comparison with SRLmagic 23mm)

UPDATE_2: The Zeiss 24mm for Nex is now back(!) in Stock at Amazon (Click here). Just click on  In Europe the lens is already in Stock at Amazon UK (Click here), Sonystore Germany (Click here), Sonystore France (Click here), Sonystore Netherland (Click here), Sonystore Sweden (Click here) and in Japan at (Click here).

Steve Huff (Click here) compared the new Zeiss 24mm for NEX with the just announced SLRmagic 23mm lens. The Zeiss in undoubtedly much sharper. Steve writes: “The SLR Magic is actually a very nice lens and the only weakness I found in my quick testing is the barrel distortion. When shooting straight lines or buildings this will be evident.” And there are some 100% blowups from the Sony Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 at Soundimagesplus (Click here).

That Zeiss lens is nice and I hope Sony will release more of such lenses soon!
