New Sony NEX reviews and news (NX10 vs NEX5 rolling shutter effect)

Let’s start with a “rolling shutter” effect comparison. On top you have the Sony NEX-5Sony NEX-5Sony NEX-5 and below the Samsung NX10

The japanese website posted a new image Gallery with some NEX image samples at different ISO settings

The korean website SLRclub posted the second part of their Sony NEX5 review. The article is available in korean only but there are plenty of videos to watch!

One of our readers asked Sony “if it would be possible that future firmware updates will add auto focus for ALphamount lenses? or is this a hardware limitation?“:
The answer from Sony: “Hi XXX, The LA-EA1 Mount adaptor which allows use of A-mount lenses on NEX cameras does not include auto-focus actuation for A-mount lenses. The NEX recognize the value of AF for A-mount lenses with NEX cameras, but the slow AF acquisition time of legacy mount lenses with Contrast AF systems resulted in AF function not being included. This is consistent with other Lens Mount adaptors for cameras using Contrast AF with legacy lenses. NEX also uses a powerful Focus Magnifier to aid Manual Focusing, helpful when using A-mount lenses. I hope that info was helpful!

And according to primetimecrew NEX cameras will be available late August (is that really true?)

New Sony NEX news list

Few lucky guys had the chance to hold the Sony NEX in their hand and it is tiny (take a look here on dpreview forum). A very serious ISO comparison has been posted by Focus Numerique. The test prooves once again that Sony managed to archieve awesome High-ISO quality. Let’s hope future firmware upgrades will be made for our current Sony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony AlphaSony Alpha cameras :)

First complete NEX5 review!

Imaging Resource has been incredible fast! They already reviewed the Sony NEX5 camera and compared it with MicroFourThirdsMicroFourThirdsMicroFourThirdsMicroFourThirdsMicroFourThirdsMicroFourThirdsMicroFourThirdsMicroFourThirdsMicroFourThirdsMicroFourThirdsMicroFourThirdsMicroFourThirdsMicroFourThirds, and classic DSLR.

Verdict? The Amazon ÖsterreichAmazon DeutschlandSony NEX has a very good image quality (better than the Olympus E-P1 and the Panasonic G1) and is on par with beasts like the Canon 550D and the Nikon D5000.
