Thanks to the new firmware update Nikon Z cameras now have a decent performing EYE-AF feature. Here are two videos showing how it compares with the Sony. Spoiler: The Sony is still the best working EYE-AF available today.
First a clarification: Viltrox has two different 85mm E-mount lenses:
Then we also have this newly announced 85mm f/1.8 FE autofocus STM lens you can preorder for $379 at BHphoto (Click here).
Miguel Angel Junquera posted this comparison that gives you a clear idea of the size of the new Samyang 45mm f/1.8 FE. From left to right: Samyang 35mm f/2.8, the new Samyang 45mm f/1.8, the Samyang 14mm f/2.8 and the Sony-Zeiss 35mm f/1.4.
And here is the lens mounted on the now very old Sony A5100 (courtesy of Christopher Frost):
DxOmark published the Panasonic S1R sensor Lab Test results. The camera performs very similar to the competition and earned the same A7rIII total score. There are some minor differences with the Sony:
PRO: Across much of the ISO range, the Panasonic S1R outperforms both the Nikon Z 7 and the Sony A7R III in color sensitivity, starting at a high maximum of 26.4 bits at a base of ISO 100, falling to around 15 bits at ISO 25,600.
CONS: The Panasonic Dynamic Rane never quite matches the range of the Sony A7R III, remaining around 1 stop (1 EV) lower throughout the ISO range.
