First image samples shot with the new Sony 400mm f/2.8 OSS GM FE lens!

Share

Yesterday a reader sent us new images of the Sony 400mm f/2.8 OSS GM FE lens that is being tested at the Olympics. Today our reader Max spotted the first images shot with this lens by Sony photographer Bob Martin! They are all posted on his Instagram channel: instagram.com/bubblesontour/.

This one for example is clearly taken with the 400mm lens:

And this one has been taken with the 400mm lens and the 2x converter (800mm in total):

Reminder: This lens will hit the market in September according to BHphoto. And it will surely cost $10,000+ just like the Canon 400mm lens :(

Two non-Sony lens leaks: Tamron 70-210mm and Samyang 50mm f/1.2

Share

Two lens images got leaked the past 24 hours:

1) Image on top: Tamron 70-210mm f/4.0 for Canon and Nikon. I really don’t think they will make an A-mount version of this. This lens and the 28-75mm f/2.8 FE lens could be announced on February 22.

2) Image below: Samyang 50mm f/1.2. It’s yet unconfirmed if this is the lens we rumored days ago.

UPDATE: The Tamron lens will be announced on Feb 22:

Europeans save 200 Euro on the 85mm GM lens if they buy it at Amazon Spain.

And if you need something a little bit more “tele” than check out this rare 2540mm F/8 lens on sale on eBay (Click here). This lens was used by NASA to take shots of their rockets.

Share

Our reader Hendrik sent us new images of the Sony 400mm f/2.8 OSS FE GM lens. These where taken at the Olympics in Korea.
The Sony lens will be available in September according to BHphoto. We still don’t know when Sony will unveil the final pricing. But this won’t be a cheap lens. The Canon 400mm lens is listed for $9,999 at Amazon US.

Zeiss Loxia reviews by ThePhoBlographer and ePhotozine

Share

The new Loxia lens preorders are now available at BHphoto and Adorama.

This lens isn’t going to create large excitement among the Sony Alpha crowd. But nevertheless this lens promises to deliver high quality in a tiny package.

ThePhoBlographer writes:

With Zeiss, you can always expect solid image quality to a very high standard. The Zeiss Loxia 25mm f2.4 isn’t any different at all. This isn’t Zeiss’s fastest 25mm lens and so you can’t expect the bokeh to be anything like an f1.4 lens. But Zeiss’s color and lack of chromatic aberration are surely there. At this point, that’s all pretty standard though I’d be shocked to see if most people could tell the difference between Zeiss color and Sony color–and they’d be even more surprised as to how much their color profile plays into that. As always, Zeiss’ sharpness is also fantastic. You can’t fault this lens at all when you nail the focusing.

ePhotozine writes:

The Loxia range is an attractive proposition, with useful focal lengths and, if the 25mm f/2.4 is anything to go by, excellent qualities. The new 25mm f/2.4 is compact, beautiful to use in a most traditional way, full of the tactile high grade feel that is rarely seen. The price may be slightly on the high side, but then again what price quality? Some may question the manual focus, but with this lens it is so easy to find the point of focus that with minimal practice it should soon become second nature. Admittedly that will not suit everyone.
All in all, a lovely lens that matches well to the Sony FE full frame mirrorless cameras.
