New Sony interview at DC.watch and Newswitch.jp: “We have dozen of lenses on our roadmap”

Newswitch.jp has interviewed Mr. Yasuyuki Nagata from Sony. Here are a couple of info:

  • Sony sees potential in the High End Mirrorless Camera and Lens market.
  • Response to the 200-600mm FE lens launch was  “greater than expected”
  • There are still a dozen of lenses that  we want to make (that  are on our roadmap). Expansion willbe “horizontal” which means extension of current lens lineups (for example f/1.8 FE range  could be extended to 20mm 24mm  f/1.8 and so forth (Interpretation by Asobinet).
  • Cost  for lenses has increased to the more advanced design and  material used
  • the demand for APS-C cameras is high because of the 1 mount strategy that makes it easy to use same lenses on different cameras (FF, APS-C and Camcorders).
  • The demand for  high  end fixed lens cameras hasn’t decreased significantly  and sales of RX cameras are growing in some regions

DC.watch interviewed Kenji Tanaka and this is what he said:

  • Sony will always try to keep cameras as small as it gets.
  • Yes it’s  possible that Sony will make GM branded APS-C lenses..

 

PhotoPlus mystery may be solved: Sony will not be there but Sony Artisans will. Sony will have A9II launch event on same period!

As you know Sony is not listed as exhibitor at the PhotoPlus show. A couple of days ago Sony officially told to Petapixel that they “will be officially listed on there either later today or tomorrow“.

But 5 days after the website has still not be updated and from the floor map it really seems like there is even no space left for Sony anyway. I guess someone at Sony is making a mess or confusion.

Luckily a source was kind enough to tell me what’s going on. This is what he told me tonight (Thanks!):

“Just thought you might want to know that they’ll have their own separate venue for an event that same weekend.
Sony Artisans will still be involved with the show but Sony will not have any presence at the Expo itself. “

In summary:
– Sony A9II will be announced exactly the same period as the PhotoPlus show but not AT the Photoplus show
– Sony Artisans will be present and have conferences and likely even discuss and show the A9II. But there will be no direct Sony booth.

PixelShift2DNG Beta 0.9.11 now adds full Sony A7rIV support

Sorry Sony but nobody really likes your Imaging Edge software. Thankfully today we got an alternative to create our High Resolution images:

PixelShift2DNG Beta 0.9.11 now added full Sony A7rIV support! You can download it for free here: fastrawviewer.com/blog/PixelShift2DNG-Beta-0-9-11

And I know Sony Tokyo is reading me so please take this note: Add Pixel Shift in camera creation just like Panasonic does on their S cameras. Thanks!

Special Thanks to Iliah Borg for making this piece of software!
