Sony A6400 vs A6500 vs Fuji X-T3 spec comparison

You can see the full spec comparison between the new Sony A6400 and the A6500 and X-T3 camera on that special BH comparison page. It’s crystal clear the A6400 is a A5100-A6300 hybrid successor and not a new High end APS-C. Sony has to bring a serious Fuji X-T3 competitor which might be named A7000. The WPPI show is coming in February and let’s hope Sony will release it on that event!

And Dpreview published some A6400 hands-on photos:

On the surface it might appear that not much has changed since the a6300, with the addition of a flip-up touchscreen and an HLG option for high dynamic range video not seeming to signal a major update. But then there’s the stills and video autofocus.

To say that the autofocus system got an overhaul would be an understatement. We’ll be spending plenty of time photographing bikes, running children and who knows what else in the next few days, but our early impressions of the Real-time Eye AF and Tracking features are extremely positive.

New Kipon FE lenses reviewed at SonyAlphaBlog

Marc Alhadeff tested four of the new kipo Full Frame and manual focusing E-mount lenses:

Kipon Iberit 24mm F2.4 (review here, order at Amazon US, Amazon DE, Amazon UK):

The Kipon Iberit 24mm F2.4 (350$) is a little bit disappointing : quality issues (decentering) and soft corners are an issue below F5.6.
For a wide angle you will often use it for landscape or street photography and you will need to close to F8-F11 to get good results
On the opposite side you still get the very good color rendition, soft blurry background and excellent sharpness in the centre, so good to be used at F2.4 for small groups or portraits shoot
Consider it as the natural complement to all other Iberit lenses for excellent portraits but not as a generalist 24mm

Kipon Iberit 35mm F2.4 (review here, order at Amazon US, Amazon DE, Amazon UK):

The Kipon Iberit 35mm F2.4 (375$) is a really nice 35 for street photographe and portrait
Like all other Ibertit his strong points are its centre sharpness, its very good color rendition and background blur which makes it ideal for portrait
The Aperture of 2.4 may seems modest but I prefer a very good F2.4 than an average F1.8

Kipon Iberit 50mm F2.4 (review here, order at Amazon US, Amazon DE, Amazon UK):

The Kipon Iberit 50mm F2.4 (325$) is a very good 50mm portrait/street photography lens but not necessary a universal 50mm
The Aperture of 2.4 may seems modest but I prefer a very good F2.4 than an average F1.8

Kipon Iberit 75mm F2.4 (review here, order at Amazon US, Amazon DE, Amazon UK):

The Kipon Iberit 75mm F2.4 is a real gem and a fantastic manual lens for the price (300$)
It is a excellent for portrait and there is currently no other 75mm For Sony E mount
The Aperture of 2.4 may seems modest but I prefer a very good F2.4 than an average F1.8

New Voigtlander 110mm FE reviews by Marc Alhadeff, Fred Miranda and Photographyblog

Voigtlander 110mm f/2.5 FE lens is in Stock for the first time at BHphoto.

Marc Alhadeff writes:

We retain exceptional sharpness of the 65mm but we add a better focal length for macro and a 1:1 ratio
The lens can easily compete with the Sony 90mm F2.8 macro G OSS (1100 euros) and does even a little bit better in term of sharpness.
For real macro where you are anyway in manual focus its focusing ring is more precise than the Sony thanks to its 360° rotation from 70cm to 35cm
The lens is also very good at portraits with beautiful blurry background but the lens is maybe too sharp for portraits

Fred Miranda writes:

The highly anticipated Voigtlander 110/2.5 APO Macro-Lanthar hits the market, and scores a win.
After putting the apochromatic telephoto (capable of 1:1 macro) under great scrutiny, it delivered exceptional macro performance while maintaining IQ at all distances. At infinity and f/4, it’s even slightly better than the Batis 135/2.8 APO – which is one of the top Sony E-mount lenses.
The 110/2.5 APO is a great all rounder. The lack of color aberration, high resolution/contrast and telephoto focal length, make it a solid option for macro, portraits and landscapes.

Photographyblog reviewed the lens and writes:

The Voigtlander 110mm F2.5 Macro APO Lanthar is a stunningly sharp macro lens that offers true 1:1 magnification and a useful working distance from your subject. Boasting the same stellar build quality that we’ve come to expect from recent Voigtlander lenses, this new optic is a real gem.
