Gloxy 12mm fisheye for NEX in Stock.

[shoplink 16268 ebay][/shoplink]

At Photokina Digital King announced the new 12mm f/7.4 fisheye lens for NEX. This lens is now for the first time in Stock via [shoplink 16268 ebay]multiple eBay resellers (Click here)[/shoplink]. Not exactly a main stream lens and the 8mm [shoplink 16269 ebay]Rokinon/Samyang lens (here on eBay)[/shoplink] may be a better choice unless you need exactly the 12mm focal length.

Here are the Gloxy specs:

  • Focal distance: 12mm
  • Coating: 7 layers multi coating to reduce aberrations to a minimum
  • Lens construction: 4 elements in 4 groups
  • Focusing distance: 0.5m to infinitive
  • Aperture: f/7.4
  • Weight: 220g
  • Dimensions: 65.00 x 58.5mm

And now a $170 price drop on the Sony RX1…

After yesterdays price drop on the A99 for the first time we also got a price drop on the Sony RX1. And it’s a quite big one! You save $170 at [shoplink 16254 ebay]Cameraland (Click here)[/shoplink] and at [shoplink 16255 ebay]BigValue (Click here)[/shoplink].

Deal found via Slidoo eBay.

A99 price drops to $2,550 at BigValue…

[shoplink 16246 ebay]


The A99 price dropped down to $2,550 at [shoplink 16246 ebay]BigValue (on eBay)[/shoplink]. That’s now $250 less than the regular price. Still not a huge price drop like we had on the Nikon FF cameras but we are getting there…slowly :)

Small price drops are also ongoing at Wex and eBay Europe. I think another $200-300 price drop would help Sony to significantly increase the camera sales. But that’s of course just a instinct based opinion. Sony will know it better what they need to push the camera sales.

Somebody asked me about the RX10 specs. I have no info yet about it. Will try to digg into it with my sources. The RX1 is a luxurious expensive camera, the RX100 is a pocketable cameras. If you ask me I would like to have the perfect mix between the two. A High image quality sensor in a compact size. The best would be to use a fixed, compact and high quality f/2.0 prime lens. Something similar exists already, ti’s called Fuji X100 :)

What’s your perfect RX10?

The RX1 is now again back in Stock at Amazon (Click here).
