Sony TidBits…


There are plenty of Sony related news I summed up into this post. I am also going to post a SonyAlphaRumors readers work roundup soon. If you have something good(!) to show drop me a message and link to your work at Thanks!

Matthew Durr tested the Sony 35mm f/1.8 OSS E-mount lens: “The 35mm f/1.8 is a fantastic lens, despite its focusing limitations dependent on CDAF. The only “real” knacks against it—heavy vignetting and noticeable fringing wide-open—can easily be worked around depending on the situation, what settings you shoot at, and how much post-processing you are used to doing.
Sony DT 55-300mm SAM f/4.5-5.6 Review at Photographic Central: “I do like a good bang for the buck, so an overall 8/10 rating for this lens which is very good considering a 10 would be a perfect performance in every aspect of a lens review. Comparatively the Tamron 70-300mm VC would get a 7.5/10 overall from me- but more on that at a later time perhaps!
