It’s time for a new review roundup as many of our Sony friends tested new stuff during the last days:
Sigma for NEX
Kurt Munger posted the full Sigma 30mm lens review: “Overall, the Sigma 30mm F/2.8 EX DN lens is pretty good in optical terms, it’s just not a useful combo in my opinion. Add in the poor flare control, small reproduction size, lack of image stabilization, and this lens really doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.”
Sonyalphalab tested both new Sigma lenses: “Their about the same sharpness as far as I can tell, and both suffer from similar flaws as far as very slight corner softening and chromatic aberrations/ fringing. The relatively small flaws on these lenses are totally reasonable though, considering the ~$200 price tag”

NEX-F3 and RX100:
Photographyblog posted the full NEX-F3 review: “The Sony NEX-F3 may sit at the bottom of Sony’s mirrorless compact system camera line-up, but for many people this could be the only camera that they’ll ever need“.
Digitalcamerainfo also tested the Sony NEX-F3: “The NEX-F3 is a solid follow-up to the successful NEX-C3, making it the best entry-level compact system camera on the market”
