Accroding to one of our sources Sony will also introduce follwing two lenses at Photokina: The 16-50mm f/2.8 SAM and the 10-20mm G which replaces the current Sony DT 11-18mm f/4.5-5.6.

We still need to confirm the rumor with one of our second sources…

SR1=probably fake rumor
SR2=rumor from unkown sources
SR3=50% chance it is correct
SR4=rumor from known sources

Alpha Numerique tested different RAW converter. Which is the best?

Share

AlphaNumerique made an unsual but very interesting test with the Sony A900. Their goal was to find out which RAW converter works best. They used Lightroom, DxO, Bibble, C1Pro, Aperture, IDC, ACDSee, SILKYPIX, Lightzone and Raw Developer.

And the winner is…Adobe Lightroom!
