New Kipon FE lenses reviewed at SonyAlphaBlog

Share

Marc Alhadeff tested four of the new kipo Full Frame and manual focusing E-mount lenses:

Kipon Iberit 24mm F2.4 (review here, order at Amazon US, Amazon DE, Amazon UK):

The Kipon Iberit 24mm F2.4 (350$) is a little bit disappointing : quality issues (decentering) and soft corners are an issue below F5.6.
For a wide angle you will often use it for landscape or street photography and you will need to close to F8-F11 to get good results
On the opposite side you still get the very good color rendition, soft blurry background and excellent sharpness in the centre, so good to be used at F2.4 for small groups or portraits shoot
Consider it as the natural complement to all other Iberit lenses for excellent portraits but not as a generalist 24mm

Kipon Iberit 35mm F2.4 (review here, order at Amazon US, Amazon DE, Amazon UK):

The Kipon Iberit 35mm F2.4 (375$) is a really nice 35 for street photographe and portrait
Like all other Ibertit his strong points are its centre sharpness, its very good color rendition and background blur which makes it ideal for portrait
The Aperture of 2.4 may seems modest but I prefer a very good F2.4 than an average F1.8

Kipon Iberit 50mm F2.4 (review here, order at Amazon US, Amazon DE, Amazon UK):

The Kipon Iberit 50mm F2.4 (325$) is a very good 50mm portrait/street photography lens but not necessary a universal 50mm
The Aperture of 2.4 may seems modest but I prefer a very good F2.4 than an average F1.8

Kipon Iberit 75mm F2.4 (review here, order at Amazon US, Amazon DE, Amazon UK):

The Kipon Iberit 75mm F2.4 is a real gem and a fantastic manual lens for the price (300$)
It is a excellent for portrait and there is currently no other 75mm For Sony E mount
The Aperture of 2.4 may seems modest but I prefer a very good F2.4 than an average F1.8

Tony Northrup believes Sony will launch a 60mm f/0,94 autofocus GM lens in 2019 to annoy Nikon

Share

Tony Northrup shared his 2019 predictions. While the A7000, A7sIII and A9sII predictions sound quite reasonable Tony added an unexpected bomb: He believes Sony will make a super fast autofocus lens.

Now call me crazy, but I do believe this would indeed make sense!

Of course Sony would not make any profit from such a lens. It would be expensive to make, expensive to sell and nearly nobody on this planet would buy it. But It would stop Nikon managers to keep bashing on the Sony mount. And forums, blogs and trolls would suddenly have no more arguments. So yes Sony, let’s show Nikon have we do a proper superfast autofocus lens!

Sony press event at CES: New 8K TV’s announced and as expected no new E-mount camera.

Share

UPDATE: The press conference is over and expected Sony did not announce anything E-mount related. Like I told you before we got a better chance to get new E-mount gear on the next event taking place in mid January (in around 10 days).

Today Sony announced new 8K TV’s only (press release here). Expect Sony to announce first 8K camcorderds later in the year. First 8K E-mount cameras are likely to be introduced after than sometimes in 2020

Here are the first images from the Sony CES booth:

New special Sony Alpha educational video series from Mark Galer

Share

Mark Galer created a new and very helpful Sony Alpha educational video series on Youtube (Click here). He also sent me this text:

I have spent the last couple of months building a comprehensive educational resource for Sony A7III and A7RIII owners.
There is now over 10 hours of movie support spread across 30 Movies specifically targeted to the A7III and A7RIII cameras. I answer ALL questions on YouTube (perhaps the only Sony Ambassador to offer this level of support online).
I have posted 14 movies since you last highlighted one of my movies in your ‘Sony Tidbits…’ section at the end of November :-)
I hope to be the primary global educator for the Sony Alpha community in 2019. With enough support from the community I am prepared to do this full time.
