(SR5) UPDATED: Tamron 28-75mm FE price is $799

Share

As reported by Nokishita the price of the new Tamron 28-75mm FE lens will be 94,500 YEN. UPDATE: We just got the info the lens will be priced at $799 in the USA (listed here at BH).

UPDATE: Our reader Anders spotted the pricing in Sweden at Cyberphoto. He writes:

“It’s slightly difficult comparing to USD or similar with our taxes but prices usually can be multiplied by 10 from USD so it should in theory cost around 869USD/869EUR.”

  • sharpness with aperture of 0.95 – 16
  • the fastest 75 mm lens of the world with 15 aperture blades
  • a Bokeh ideal for portrait photography in difficult light conditions
  • a lens that creates a three-dimensional appearance separating the subject from the background in a characteristic manner
  • compatible with Leica M, Sony E and Fuji X
  • click less aperture ring
  • Made in Germany
  • Highest requirements for the glasses used

Expected launch: May 2018

Meyer-Optik-Goerlitz: Again, in the leading position for available light photography
Already in the 1920s, Meyer brought lenses to market which were the fastest lenses of their time: the Kinoplasmat 75/f1. 5. Later the Primoplan 1.9/58 was to become the fastest standard lens for the famous Exakta camera, which was sold in the USA as “Kine night Exakta”. At this time Meyer-Optik Goerlitz was considered as the most prominent manufacturer of available light lenses, so called “giants of light” and in 2016 the company presented the Nocturnus 0.95/50 mm for the first time now available in its third version.
Now Meyer is following the legacy of creating the fastest 75mm lens in the world like it once did with the Kinoplasmat. The Nocturnus 0.95/75 mm lens is a full format lens available for Sony E, Fuji X and Leica M. The company also intends to follow with a 35mm lens later in order to complete its Nocturnus line.

Main Features

1. The Nocturnus provides unsurpassed portrait images

Like its “little brother” – the Nocturnus 50 – the Nocturnus 0.95/75 delivers outstanding performance with a fully opened aperture 0.95 for Sony E, Fuji X and Leica M photographers.
With its aperture at 0.95 and its 15 steel aperture blades with antireflection coating the Nocturnus 50 delivers an appearance and imaging which cannot be obtained by any other lens. This opens creative opportunities especially in “people photography” under difficult light conditions.

2. 75mm focal length, 15 Steel Aperture Blades: #1 and Only in the World of Available Light Photography

World premier! 75mm focal length, 15 steel aperture blades along with a maximum aperture of 0.95 is only available in the portfolio of Meyer-Optik Goerlitz. This combination allows photographers who are using Leica M, Sony E or Fuji X to make use of the outstanding creative opportunities by the conscious use of depth of field, sharpness and bokeh. The 15 blades aperture was designed by Dr. Prenzel from Goerlitz and the mechanical components of the aperture are built by Otto Niemann precision mechanics from Berlin. Otto Niemann has been one of the specialists in the production of iris diaphragms since 1945. Of course, the aperture of the Nocturnus 0.95/75 is adjustable to infinty. The mechanical quality is outstanding and as a result the Nocturnus 0.95 / 75mm is a tool, that the photographer can rely on all his life.

3. Handmade Masterpieces

The Nocturnus 0.95/75 is a handmade masterpiece. Trained expert staff and state of the art technology make each Meyer-Optik Goerlitz lens a masterpiece in itself. Meyer-Optik Goerlitz employs a selected staff who put in all their experience and pride to produce a perfect Meyer-Optik Goerlitz Nocturnus 0.95/75. The company offers guided tours in its production facilities in Hamburg, Germany, to give customers an insight into the high production standards.

4. Photography at the speed of light

The combination of 75mm and the unique aperture of f 0.95 creates images of an unmet aesthetic especially when shot wide open, generating a three dimensional appearance where the subject seems to be stepping out of the image. The Bokeh is smooth and under the appropriate condition may contain some sharp edged light circles.
Each shot is of unique sharpness, depth of field and Bokeh characteristic.

Warning: Wasabi Sony NP-FZ100 “clone” is NOT working!

Share

The world’s first third-party NP-FZ100 clone is now in Stock for the first time at Amazon US. But we are getting reports from many readers saying the battery is NOT working. Since than Blue Nook removed the preorder option.

David Busch reports on Amazon:

Purchased one of these to test and review in my Sony books. When inserted in camera I receive “Incompatible Battery. Use Correct Model.” message. It appears when using my a7 III, a7R III, and a9. I assume not all examples do this and it may be a quality control issue. I emailed Blue Nook on the day I received the battery.
UPDATE: I’ve heard from Blue Nook. They report that there was a problem with the first batch from the factory and will receive a fixed version soon. I am returning the defective battery to them.
