Eisa (The European Imaging and Sound Association) has choosen the [shoplink 3003]Sony NEX-5[/shoplink] as best mirrorless camera 2010-2011. I believe nobody here will disagree with that decision :)
As you know we started a new SonyAlphaRumors section. Many manufactors are building more and more adapters for E-mount cameras. And we want to see how those third-party lenses do work on our NEX cameras! I would be happy if you send me your images taken with third party lenses and also some nice cameraporn pictures :)
Today we show you the Voigländer 35mm and 40mm f/1.4 lenses. They are both M-mount lenses so you need to use [shoplink 3491]the Leica M-mount to E-mount adapter (just click here to check out the whole list of available adapters on eBay)[/shoplink]

Let’s start with the cameraporn: An image of the Sony NEX-5 + 35mm lens is available here at Flickr and here again at Flickr. As you can see it’s a pretty compact and nice combination!
Image samples are available at Flickr.

Everyone from Dpreview to Lumnous Landscape likes the new Sony cameras (epsecially the Translucent A55/A33 pair). But not everyone seems to be happy with the new products. I thought it is good for our readers to read the “different” opinions and arguments. So take it with a grain of salt ok?
The first negative post is from EosHD -> “Dear Sony… The A55 is just not good enough”.
The second is from Sony lover and hacker Vitaly Kiselev on DVXuser -> Sony a33/a55/a569/a580 disaster
They both follow our website so feel free to add your opinion by commenting this post!
The lens review website Photozone tested the new E-mount 16mm and 18-55mm lenses. According to their tests the 16mm lens “technically it isn’t really an impressive lens“. They liked the 18-55mm which “is a very decent kit zoom lens“.
