SLR magic 28mm f/2.8 NEX lens in Stock on eBay.

Slr magic from Hong Kong just announced via Twitter that the new 28mm f/2.8 lens for E-mount is in Stock on eBay (Click here). The price is $199. This is a manual lens that needs no adapter to fit on your NEX camera. I havn’t found a review on the world wide web, just a hands-on written by Steve Huff.

This is the second NEX lens made by the company. The other one is the SLR Magic 35mm f/1.7 you can also get on eBay (Click here).

P.S.: I hope Sigma or Voigtländer will do the pancakes Sony is missing in their roadmap. Would love to see a native 35mm f/1.4 Voigtländer lens for example!

US instant rebates on the A55, NEX-5 and VG10 (replacements coming soon?)


There have been new instant rebates on the Sony A55 camera. As you know last week we told you that there could be a new A57 (or A65) announcement in July. And rumors from new sources do suggest that also the NEX-5 and VG10 could be replaced (more on that as soon as I get info from trusted sources). The very interesting note is that those deals do end on July 9. And our sources told us that there coul be a press release on July 7 :)
The following price drops in US may be a indirect confirmation that the rumor is correct! Here is the list of the price drops:

A55
You can get the A55 body only for $699 (-50$) at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here).

Preorder the new Samyang/Rokinon/Wallimex 35mm f/1.4 manual lens for Alpha Mount.

I was wondering why I couldn’t find any preorder option of the new Samyang 35mm f/1.4 manual lens. Finally I discovered that in US and Europe the lens has a different “name”. It’s called Rokinon in US and sometimes called Wallimex in Europe (why?). You can preorder the lens for $499 at Amazon (Click here). Didn’t found the lens in european stores.

P.S.: The real bargain is the 85mm f/1.4 you can get for $274 on Amazon (Click here).
