Full Sony NEX-5n Field Review at Luminous Landscape (NEX-7 will be produced elsewhere?)


So here we are with the only new Sony camera that is in Stock in every part of the world :) Out friends over at Luminous Landscape (Click here) posted a new NEX-5n review: “My bottom line observation is that until the NEX-7 ships, the NEX-5n has taken the prime spot in my gear bag. Big camera quality and features in something that fits in a coat pocket and that can take literally a thousand or more different lenses. What’s not to like?

And you know it will take a lot of time before the NEX-7 will be in Stock. Sony is currently transferring the production from the submerged area in Thailand to another factory that usually produces other audio stuff. Here is the official press release from Sony: “Operations of our factory in Thailand have been temporarily suspended due to flooding, supply chain and transportation difficulties.  The flooding at the STT-A [Sony Technology Thailand – Ayutthaya ] factory, which manufactures Alpha / NEX camera bodies and interchangeable lenses, began on October 14th, and some equipment has been partially damaged.  We’re currently investigating the impact to overall supply chain and future product launch timing“.

So here are the links to the NEX-5n: . As usual click on the shop names to check the availability and price of the camera. The viewfinder is also in Stock: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.

Sony NEX-5n reviews roundup


There are a couple of new NEX-5n news and reviews:

Outbackphoto (Click here) reviewed the NEX-5n: “The NEX-5N was a major surprise for us. Combined with the 18-200mm the NEX-5N is our close to ideal travel camera. We hope to be able to check the NEX-7 and see whether it would be an even better choice.”

Mike Kobal (Click here) tested the camera with the Canon 50mm f/1.8: “I have the Nex 7 on order, the only reason I am not getting the EVF for the 5N. I am very impressed with the sensor on the 5N, Sony has done a great job here and I can’t wait to get my Nex 7! Exciting times!

Thisstonybrigde (Click here) writes: “So the question has to be asked: could you travel the world and make exhibition quality work with a little camera like this which takes up next to no room? I certainly think so. For me the clip-on viewfinder has made all the difference.

The german website Photoscala (Click here) tested a couple of M-mount lenses on the NEX-5n.

Meanwhile it looks like the current Stocks of NEX-5n are shipping without the “Clicking” issue. And the new user reviews on Amzon US (Click here) are all extremely positive (all 5 star!). More user reviews are available at Amazon UK, Amazon DE and Amazon FR.

A77 review at Photoclubalpha and firmware 1.03 ISO test (A77 shipping in US!).

Sony Alpha DSLT A65 TVCF (30″ Korea) from Sony Alpha on Vimeo.

Ther eis a new very detailed A77 review writen by David Kilpatrick at Photoclubalpha (Click here). It’s a must read article because it gives you a lot of info with very personal touch. He is certainly impressed by the A77 but still didn’t fall in love with the idea to use an electornic viewfinder instead of an optical viewfinder.

A reader sent me this Iso noise tests with the A77 (firmware 1.03) + Sony 35/1.8 (at 2.0) in 3200 iso: Click on it to see the pics on Picasa: Extra fine jpeg 3200 iso, RAW 3200 iso (no postprocessing), RAW 3200 iso (50+50 lightroom noise reduction) and Extra fine jpeg 3200 iso (with “multi frame noise reduction” enabled). The reader says: “I would say that mfnr feature works extremely well, very low noise and a lot of preserved details (just compare phone keyboards on each of them), wish they implemented it to RAW also (now only available for jpeg).

The french magazine “Chasseurs d’Images” N°338, writes about the A77: “le piqué est supérieur aux autres capteurs APS-C. C’est logique vu le gain en définition, mais cela méritait d’être vérifié!
La barre de piqué titille celle du Nikon D3X! Gain sur tirage 1600 iso A3 : l’addition des 24 Mpx et du faible niveau de bruit à 1600 iso donne des images très qualitatives. L’Alpha 77 (c’est vrai aussi pour le 65) vient chatouiller le Nikon D3X qui était jusqu’à maintenant le champion incontesté. Et il pulvérise tous les autres reflex dotés du capteur APS-C !!!

One more thing: Meanwhile quite many US SAR readers sent me emails to say that Sonystore US is now shipping the first batch of A77 cameras!

NEX-7 hands-on video at dpreview (Will there be a shipping delay because of the flood in Thailand?)

The video on top shows the NEX-7 in the hands of the Dpreview reviewer. But I also have one more ting to tell you. Things in Thailand are much worse than expected and I heard that there will be even longer delays in Sony camera shipments (and that includes the NEX-7). As you know also Nikon produces the camera in the same region and Thom Hogan (Click here) posted quite a terrible report about the consequences in Nikon factories. I ask my sources if they can please tell me if the NEX-7 shipment will be delayed or not. Thanks!

Is the NEX-7 image quality better than the quality of the A77?

Imaging Resource (Click here) posted a full set of Sony NEX-7 studio samples. The cool thing is that finally you can compare the NEX-7 and A77 image quality: http://www.imaging-resource.com/IMCOMP/COMPS01.HTM.

An example: At 16000 ISO the NEX-7 image (Click here) looks sharper than the A77 (Click here). UPDATE: Both cameras used the same Sigma 70mm F2.8 macro lens!

And even at low 100 ISO the NEX-7 image (Click here) is a tack sharper than the A77 image (Click here).

I don’t know yet if the differences we see are here because of the absence of the semi transparent mirror on the NEX-7. One thing is sure, the NEX-7 really looks like an amazing perfomer for me!

Preorder the NEX-7 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.
And the NEX-7 is still the only non-Canon and non-Nikon camera that is constantly under the Amazon top-20 (Click here to see the full ranking).
Get the A77 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.

The lens I would like to win is the...

Slrmagic 28mm f/2.8 reviews

EosHD (Click here) tested the SLRmagic 28mm f/2.8 with E-mount: “Essentially with SLR Magic you have a pre-approved selection of glass that is quirky and stylistic. I had tons of fun shooting with this lens and it doesn’t break the bank, it’s probably the cheapest E-mount lens on the market.

Also Steve Huff (Click here) reviewed the same lens: “This 28 2.8 lens is somewhat classic in its rendering when shot wide open and when you stop it down to f/8, forget about it! It sharpens up and gives really great results.

You can get that lens on eBay only (Click here).

NEX-7 preview by Steve Huff!

Steve Huff (Click here) received the production version of the NEX-7 directly from Sony! You can see a first comparison with the Fuji X100 and Olympus E-P3 on his website. This is really a great camera! And it shows on Amazon rankings too (Click here) because it manages to be always in the top 20 most ordered (or preordered) cameras.

Time for you to preorder the camera (as I did): Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay (Click on the hop name to visit the NEX-7 product page).
