POLL: Select your future A77 firmware upgrade must have features.

Share

It’s time for you to select the most needed new features and fixes that should be implemented in future A77 firmware upgrades. I summed your requests and tried to make an easy overview of your suggested changes. You guys gave a terrific long list of new features and bug fixes (Click here to read your comments). I choose to sum the display your most requested only because otherwise the list would have become incredibly long. This is not a scientific test! It should only give a very general idea about what Sony should do more urgently.

So while almost all you features and bug fix suggestion were interesting let’s vote the ten only of them that Sony should absolutely do now!

Do you like the new Sony A7III ?

One more private note: By the time you are reading this I am starting my three days mountain trip. I will stay between 2500 and 3500 meter for two nights. I don’t know if I can have Internet access with my iPhone in these days. I scheduled a couple of news that will get online between now and Sunday. Hope to come back alive ;) I am writing this because some comments awaiting for moderation will need some time to be approved. Plus emails can be answered on late Sunday only.

Zeiss 24mm for NEX is back(!) in Stock at Amazon and in Europe! (+ comparison with SRLmagic 23mm)

Share

UPDATE_2: The Zeiss 24mm for Nex is now back(!) in Stock at Amazon (Click here). Just click on  In Europe the lens is already in Stock at Amazon UK (Click here), Sonystore Germany (Click here), Sonystore France (Click here), Sonystore Netherland (Click here), Sonystore Sweden (Click here) and in Japan at Amazon.jp (Click here).

Steve Huff (Click here) compared the new Zeiss 24mm for NEX with the just announced SLRmagic 23mm lens. The Zeiss in undoubtedly much sharper. Steve writes: “The SLR Magic is actually a very nice lens and the only weakness I found in my quick testing is the barrel distortion. When shooting straight lines or buildings this will be evident.” And there are some 100% blowups from the Sony Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 at Soundimagesplus (Click here).

That Zeiss lens is nice and I hope Sony will release more of such lenses soon!

Sony NEX-7 beats the Leica M9 (Luminous Landscape)! First NEX-7 in hands of a SAR reader.

Share


The NEX-7 is shipping to our US readers :)

Luminous Landscape (Click here) posted a new post within their NEX-7 rolling review. They compared the NEX with the expensive Leica M9 fullframe camera (Click here to check price on eBay). To compare the two camera image quality they used the same 50mm f/1.4 Summilux ASPH lens on both cameras. Conclusion: “There is no question (to my eyes at least) that the Sony sensor out-resolves the Leica using the same lens.

What do you think? Amazing or not? Imagine what a fullframe NEX-9 or A99 will do. Leica really has to invent something on their sensor strategy to keep up with Sony.

One more news: SonyAlphaRumors reader “Brad” just sent me these pictures showing the very first stock of NEX-7 that has been shipped via SonyStore USA. As you see he uses the super Minolta 50mm f/1.2 lens (here on eBay) on it! Click on the thumbnails below to enlarge the image.
P.S.: Sony NEX-7 preorder search(!) links Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay. You might don’t find NEX-7 preorder at all :(
