(SR5) Sony will launch a new ILCE-QX1 camera!

I got this news weeks ago and now we got a proof via the Russian agency Novocert (Thanks Photorumors for spotting this). Sony will launch a new QX E-mount camera. it will be called ILCE-QX1. It’s basically a sensor and mount module that let’s you fit E-mount lenses on your smart phone or tablet!

I really don’t know if there is a market for this :)

P.S.: Photorumors also confirmed the rumor we posted last week. There will be a new 35mm G lens and a 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G (article here).

(SR4) Samyang 50mm f/1.2 Cine lens (A and E-mount) to be announced on August 26.

It’s really lens rumor time at Photokina! Samyang will launch a new 50mm f/1.2 VDSLR (Cine) lens on August 26. And as usual with their Cine lenses we expect to get both A and E-mount versions of it. There is no info about the price yet but current VDSLR lenses are very cheap and of extreme good optical quality. A full list of these A and E mount Cine lenses can be seen at BHphoto (Click here).

Vicente:I made a gallery on DPReview with some of my shots from a volunteering that i made the last month with my A77, i think it can be interesting to somebody :)

Dino:I just wanted to share a review I had done on the classic Olympus OM 50mm f/1.4 lens on the Sony A7. For such a relatively inexpensive prime lens it has surprised me on how well it had performed. I highly recommend this lens.

Gary:I am an avid Sony user. A77, A99 and CX900 camcorder. Just wanted to send you a link to a new video I made comparing the XAVCS vs AVCHD video codecs using the CX900. I looked everywhere for any kind of real life comparisons and could not find any anywhere. So I did a little test myself. The video shows a few different test shots from everyday situations and verifies my suspicions that the XAVCs Codec does handle highlights beter than AVCHD as well as find detail, even when the files are re-rendered as 28Mbps Mp4 files. Anyway here’s the link. Not sure if you would like to share this. I just thought it was worth doing because there are no such comparisons out there….Anywhere.
