There is a new “handmade” Sony E-mount camera and it’s not from Sony!

Tomorrow (on Monday) I will post the details about a new Sony E-mount camera. All I can say is that it’s not from Sony and it’s handmade by one single person :)

Start your guesses folks what this will be about!

Sony will have a small press conference during the World Photography Awards

I just got this from a source:

Sony will have a small press conference during the World Photography Awards. It is not of large scale, so the most optimistic expectation would be a lens announcement, definitely not a new body of any kind.

In the past Sony has announced some stuff at the World Photography Awards but I guess this time we probably will not get any product announcement.

At this point I think that if we are going to see something new this might be the new 24mm f/1.4 FE GM lens. And if there is nothing I bet we are going to get something new in May already anyway.

(SR5) First image of the new Laowa 10-18mm FE zoom lens!

A source just sent us this image of the new Laowa FE zoom. And he said:

The new lens is an FE10-18 zoom (99% confirmed). The aperture seems to be F3.5-F4.5 but this part I’m not sure.

The lens should be announced in 2-3 weeks. This is a manual focus lens only but the specs are quite amazing: Compared with my Sony 12-24mm FE (see image below) this new Laowa is more compact, lighter (I guess) and takes filters too. And I don’t mind the shorter tele end because the extra 2mm on the wide end are way more interesting for my kind of shooting.

And our reader Jmar made a another accurate size comparison based on the Laowa teaser image we posted earlier today:

UPDATE: More images:

Stay tuned on SAR!

(SR5) Venus Optics is going to have “one of the biggest launch for Sony FE mount users”

Venus Optics will announce a new Laowa FE lens at the upcoming Beijing P&E show in early May. Venus Optics teases this to be “one be the biggest launch for Sony FE mount users”.
The Silhouette image on top shows the new lens. It appears to have 3 rings which suggests this might be a Zoom FE lens!
