Some fun: This is how the 12mm f/1.0 FE E-mount lens looks on the A7.



You may have missed that but lats weekend some Chinese site posted a fake image of a 12mm f/1.0 FE E-mount lens. As a rumor site it’s my duty to tell you that the image you see is a fake. To better show you how funny that fake is SAR reader Steve (Thanks!) shows you how big the lens would look on the A7 :)

As a side not if the lens would be real I guess the size could really be like that!

Jorge Torralba:t’s that time of the year again. The 2014 contest has officially begun.
Just like the previous contests we have hosted, A big thanks to Richard Schleuning of Carl Zeiss, Camera Lens Division for providing the winning prize once again. This time the winner can choose one lens from the following list.

Distagon 2/28 ZE or ZF.2
Distagon 2/35 ZE or ZF.2
Planar 1.4/50 ZE or ZF.2
Planar 1.4/85 ZE or ZF.2

Touit 1.8/32 E or X
Touit 2.8/50M E or X
Loxia 2/50 E
Loxia 2/35 E

This year’s theme will be “In the Open”. This could be any subject photographed outdoors where the surroundings blend well with the main subject and contribute to the overall image. For example, a nice landscape where the overall scene is the main subject, a cow grazing on a field where the surroundings make the cow seem interesting rather than boring, a portrait where bokeh from the surroundings enhance the subject, a fire fighter surrounded by a blazing building. Being captivated by the image is what we want.
Try and avoid portraits where you are only drawn to the main subject and ignore the rest of the frame. Avoid macro work and the proverbial cornucopias. Avoid heavy post processing that makes a photo look unnatural.
I think you get the picture now  The objective is to maximize use of the entire frame and captivate the viewer.
You are allowed three entries under the category 2014 – Contest. This time, the contest is open to Zeiss users and non- Zeiss users as well. This will give all photographers a chance to own a coveted Zeiss lens. The only catch is that whatever camera you use must accept a Zeiss lens.
The contest will close on Dec 31, 2014 23:59:59 GMT and the judges will include staff members of Popflash Photo and
