Sony A99II tested at Dpreview: “it is the ultimate SLT”


DPreview just posted their final full Sony A99II review:

It is the SLT that should be used by any photographers that have had prior doubts about the system, as its all-round balance of features and capabilities leave the ultimate decision for many photographers up to two things: EVF vs. OVF, and the lens system. For those that love SLT, the a99 II is definitely worth a look, but for those that need a solid all-rounder, or a lens selection beyond A-mount, the complications of SLT may not be worth the advantages.

Aleksandar: Greetings, I didn’t see any video about speedboster error that is very common. So I made a video about fixing missing infinity focus for viltrox/metabones/commlite and othets.
Here’s video, if you think it could be helpful for others. I would be happy you share it. Thank you

(SR4) Sigma will launch two new ART prime lenses this year: 14mm f/1.8 and 135mm f/1.8


Image on top shows the current 50mm f/1.4 A-mount ART lens

We have been told by a reliable sources that Sigma will launch two new ART lenses this year:

-14mm f/1.8
-135mm f/1.8

It’s yet unclear if there will be an A-mount version of those. While the current 35mm ART and 50mm ART are available for A-mount the 85mm ART is not. My guess is that as usual Sigma will first announce the Nikon/Canon/Sigma mount versions and maybe later the Sony A-mount and Pentax K-mount versions. That said these new Sigma lenses will get full electronic compatibility on E-mount cameras when you use the Sigma MC-11 Mount Converter.

if the Sigma 135mm f/1.8 is as least as good as the 135mm Zeiss but for under $1,000 well than I am sure the A-mount folks will be very happy about that new glass!
