New Zeiss 24mm, NEX 18-55mm, Sony 135mm f/2.8 lens reviews! (+Adobe Lens Profile for 16mm f/2.8 NEX)

Share

The swiss website Artaphot.ch (yes it is in english) wrote a very good comparison between the new Zeiss 24mm lens, Zeiss 24-70mm, Zeiss 16-35mm, Minolta 24mm and Miolta 17-35mm lens! The new 24mm Zeiss delivers very sharp images “more than 90% of the full frame are displayed with perfect resolution and nearly perfect contrast.” and “the image quality of the 2/24mm @ f2 is comparable to the image quality of the ZA 2.8/24-70mm @ f 11“. Thanks Artaphot for sharing us that very good review!

David Kilpatrick created a new Adobe Lens Profile for the 16mm f/2.8 NEX lens! It automatically corrects CA (Chromatic Aberration), Vignetting and Distortion. You can download the profile here: http://www.photoclubalpha.com/2010/08/16/adobe-lens-profile-for-16mm-f2-8-nex/. Thanks David!

Kurtmunger tested the 18-55mm E-mount lens: “The NEX e-mount 18-55mm makes a great lens to keep permanently on your NEX camera

Alpha Numerique (google english translation) tested the Sony 135mm f/2.8 lens.

Meet the NEX designers!

Share

Sony decided to interview the team that designed the NEX cameras. Finally we know the “human beeings” behind the project. -> Taken from the Sony website: “The NEX-5/NEX-3 design project team discuss the project’s background and their individual goals in creating a totally new breed of camera with unprecedented form and functionality.”

Many Thanks to Sony for letting us meet those guys!
