PhotonsToPhotos test: Sony A6400 has improved Dynamic Range over the A6500

Photonstophotos tested the sensor performance of the new Sony A6400. And the good news is that Sony managed to squeeze out some more Dynamic Range from their 24MP sensor compared to the previous Sony A6500.

Now let’s see what kind of improvement the new A6500 successor will bring us once Sony decides it’s time to beat the hell out of the Fuji X-T3 :)

Sony A6400:
USA at BHphoto, Adorama, FocusCamera, Buydig, Amazon.
Europe at Calumet Germany, ParkCameras UK, Jessops.
Asia at Sony Australia and Sony Japan.

Nikon Z7 sensor tested by DxOmark: “can’t match the Sony A7R III for the majority of the sensitivity range”

DxOmark published the full Nikon Z7 sensor test:

With the exception of the uppermost sensitivity values, the Nikon Z 7 has a near-identical signal-to-noise ratio to the D850. And although they are both very good, neither can match the Sony A7R III for the majority of the sensitivity range. That said, the values are so close that it’s very unlikely that you’d spot a difference among the images. However, combining the better noise control and dynamic range of the Sony A7R III at higher sensitivity settings could provide an advantage when brightening images post-capture.

Lensrentals about the new Sony 135mm GM lens: “sharpest lens we have ever tested”

Lensrentals tested the MTF of the new Sony 135mm GM lens:

These results are insanely good. At 100 lp/mm the Sony 135mm f/1.8 GM has a higher MTF than most excellent primes do at 50 lp / mm. If you don’t speak MTF, basically that means this lens can resolve fine details that would be a blur on excellent lenses. This is the sharpest lens we’ve tested. Period.

And below a new test by Miguel Quiles and an interesting comparison with the Sigma 135mm ART by Manny Ortiz:

 

Preorders:
Sony 135mm GM at Amazon, BHphoto, Adorama and FocusCamera. EU at ParkCameras, WexUK and Calumet DE.
Sigma 135mm f/1.8 at BHphoto, FocusCamera, Amazon and Adorama.

Sony RX1RII vs Zeiss ZX1 size and specs comparison

This is only my speculation but I suspect the Zeiss ZX1 might be the real Sony RX1RII successor. I see no reason why Sony should continue this line of cameras unless they come up with something unexpected (like curved sensor, or medium format sensor).

Apotelyt just posted this size and specs comparison between the RX1RII and ZX1:

Nikon Z6 sensor gets DxOmarked and shows basically similar Sony A7III performance

Two news to report:

First, DxO is back testing cameras (see press note at the bottom)
Second, they tested the Nikon Z6 sensor and surprise surprise….there is no surprise :) It uses the same A7III sensor and results are very similar. The small differences are due the different processing of the images.

Press:
PARIS – March 8, 2019 – DxOMark is back to testing DSLRs! The Nikon Z 6 review is the first of many sensor reviews planned for 2019. As mirrorless full-frame cameras are on the rise, this segment will be our focus in upcoming sensor publications.
