Quick size comparison between the Noct 58mm f/0,95 lens and Sony 50mm FE lenses

Nikon’s main goal has been surely achieved: The new about the new $8,000 Noct 58mm f/0,95 Z lens is going viral on the web. It doesn’t matter if only a handful of people will really buy it :)

Just for the sake of curiosity here are some size comparisons with Sony 50mm FE lenses via CameraSize:

Noct with the Meyer/Mitakon 50mm f/0,95 FE lens

Noct with the Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 FE

And here is the spec comparison with the Sony A6400 and Nikon Z50 (complete specs comparison on that BHphoto page)

Cool: Sony Presents 48MP All-pixel PDAF and 3-layer Organic sensor

Image Sensor World reports that Sony will present a new 48MP All-pixel PDAF sensor and a new 3-layer Organic sensor at the IEDM 2019:

New 48Mp PDAF sensor:

We created the world’s first all PDAF CMOS image sensor using 2×2 on-chip lens architecture. That had 1/2 inch 48M pixels with 0.8µm Quad Bayer coding for high resolution and HDR function, and all PDAF pixels achieved a minimum AF illuminance level of 1 lux.

New 3 layer Organic sensor:

A three-layer stacked color image sensor was formed using an organic film. The sensor decreases the false color problem as it dose not require demosaicing. Furthermore, with the 2.0-μm pixel image sensor, improved spectral characteristics owing to green adsorption by the organic film above the red/blue photodiode, were successfully demonstrated.

New InGas Sony sensor:

We developed a back-illuminated InGaAs image sensor with 1280 x 1040 pixels at 5-um pitch by using Cu-Cu hybridization connecting different materials, a III-V InGaAs/InP of photodiode array, and a silicon readout integrated circuit (ROIC). A prototype device showed high sensitivity at visible to SWIR wavelengths and low dark current.

SAR’s take:

The one sensor I am particularly  interested to see in action is the 3 layer organic film. Sigma is working hard on making a new FF 3 layer  sensor camera in 2020. And Panasonic-Fuji are also working on a new organic sensor. On paper Sony seems to making a bit jump ahead by combining both  this tech into one sensor

Sony has invited journalist to test the new A9II body and a “few surprises” on the Creative Space

A couple of journalists have been officially invited by Sony. And the invitation letter says they will test the new A9II body and a “few surprises”. I wouldn’t read too much into this word “surprises”. I got no info about possible new lens announcements yet…and those surprises might as well be ood food and drinks :)

Still, sure is that there will be a journalists-youtubers-photographers meeting on October 23.
