It’s so hard to find the 50mm for NEX in US stores that this might be a good deal even if you have to pay a $50 extra for it! Pcnation is right now selling 13 of them through Amazon (Click here). If you still want it for $299 than you will have to wait 4-7 weeks (according to Amazon).
Soon Sony will have a major product announcement day but it will not be particularly interesting when it comes to the new lenses. There will be two new zooms. One is the already leaked 18-135mm SAM lens and another zoom I don’t have the exact specs yet. So no primes and no fast lenses. Overall I got the “impression” Sony is facing some production issues. They still cannot produce enough 24mm Zeisss and 50mm (both for NEX) lenses. This may be one of the reasons for that unspectacular new announcement
Nikon just unveiled the new Nikon D3200 which uses the same Sony 24 Megapixel sensor of the Sony A77 sensor. It will be very interesting to see if there is any noticeable difference in terms of RAW image quality due the Sony’s transparent mirror and Nikon own “tweaks”. Price and specs info of the Nikon are up at Amazon (Click here). I guess DxOmark will soon test the camera and speaking of DxOmark they just published the Canon 5DmarkIII test. Why is it interesting? It has exactly the same score of the Sony NEX-7! CLick here to see the markIII versus NEX-7 comparison.
The video on top is a extremely long discussion about the NEX-7. I didn’t know Sergey Brin from Google was using the NEX-7!
Luminous Landscape (Click here) re-evaluated the NEX-7 after a six months use: “This is the mirrorless camera that other manufacturers have to recon with, and for the moment is, in my opinion, one of the best available choices in a compact system camera for the serious photographer.”
Full NEX-7 review at Stuckincustoms (Click here): “If you are a veteran DSLR shooter that is needs action-photography performance, low-light sharpness with excellent ISO performance, or the flexibility of a robust lens system, then the Sony NEX-7 may not be for you.”

That was the question on the front page today....Maybe I am out to lunch here but how can Canon be a threat when its using Sony's sensors, that to me shows that Canon has reached a limit to in its ability to inovate. The only threat I see is that unless Sony take up more […]
Hi, I was wondering if its possible to trigger a Canon 600 speedlight with a Sony HVL43m flash. I have both, including a Yonguno flash. I still have the speedlight from when I had Canon, so I was wondering if I could make use of it as a way to off camera flash. I […]
Sorry if this has been done before, as I suspect it must have been, but could not find it. I'm reading the 16-70 zeiss is great, and the 24-70 full frame not so great. For image quality in terms of resolution, will I notice a difference between these two sets? Forget low light […]
