A37 is “essential” says Photographyblog. And first RX100 cheater price…

Usually popular cameras only have the honour to grab the attention from cheaters. The RX100 is certainly one of the most popular new cameras of the moment and it is in Stock (with accessories) for $1,739 at Amazon (Click here). Don’t buy it! The camera with real price is coming within the next days! A new short preview is available at Cnet. Preorders at Amazon USAdoramaBHphoto, Amazon GermanyAmazon France and Jessops.

Photographyblog posted the full A37 review and writes: “The Sony A37 may sit at the bottom of Sony’s SLT line-up, but for many people this could be the only camera that they’ll ever need.” The camera earns the highest possible ranking!

(Now Sold Out) Zeiss 24mm for NEX in Stock at BHphoto.


Don’t miss the chance to grab one of the (very few) Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 lenses that are in Stock right now at BHphoto (Click here). That lens is so difficult to find (at least in US stores). Amazon (Click here) has an overpriced used copy only for sale (Click here). Sony really needs to push the lens production. And as long as the Zeiss isn’t available I fear we have to wait until we can get the other new NEX lens(es) that will be announced soon!

UPDATE: Now Sold Out!

It’s a good quality lens and it has been rcently tested at Lensrentals (Click here).

Sigma 105mm f/2.8 now in Stock in USA and Europe!

Sigma has annoucned that the Sigma Macro 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM is now available in Sony fit. The lens is right now in Stock at Amazon US (Click here) and Adorama (Click here). In Europe at Amazon DE (Click here) and Amazon FR (Click here).

Sigma Press Release
105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Medium telephoto macro lens incorporating Sigma’s Optical Stabiliser
The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce that the Sigma MACRO 105mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is now available in Sony AF fit.

The successor to the Sigma MACRO 105mm F2.8 EX DG, introduced to market in June 2004, this large aperture medium telephoto macro lens incorporates the latest optical design technology, offering advanced performance for close-up photography. A Special Low Dispersion (SLD) lens and one high refractive index SLD lens provide excellent correction for all types of aberration and distortion.
A floating focusing system moves two different lens groups in the optical path to different positions. This system compensates for astigmatic aberration and spherical aberration and provides extremely high optical performance from infinity to 1:1 Macro.
The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting, providing high contrast images. It is also possible to use this lens with Sigma’s optional APO Tele Converters. Sigma’s own proprietary OS (Optical Stabiliser) function helps with handheld close-up photography and the HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures quiet and high speed autofocus as well as full-time manual focus capability.
This lens features a splash resistant design for use in harsh conditions and a rounded 9 blade diaphragm creating a smooth blur to the out of focus areas of the image.

USA deals: Last days of Sony NEX-5n and Sigma lens rebates (Samyang lenses at BH!)

JUst a short reminder for our (lucky) USA readers. The Sony NEX-5n $50 rebate will end soon at Amazon (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here). If yu need a NEX camera now it makes no sense to wait for the NEX-F5 because even if the announcement will be in summer I expect the usual 1-2 months delay before the camera actually ships. So if you need it now…grab it now!

And Alpha Camera owners may take a look on the Sigma lens rebates at Amazon (Click here). But the Samyang lenses I really love becuase of the top quality and low price are finally also in Stock at BHphoto (Click here).
