    I bought a Sigma A mount 24-105 some 12 months ago at half the price ( actually a little less ) for the new FE lens. With its bulk and weight it is better balanced on A mount cameras than on the A7R II, but when I need a one lens solution it works fine.Having […]

    .Hi Sig; Truly enjoying the documentation and your clean approach to shooting the photos, with clear views of how each step was rethought and configured to create smoothly-running working environment.

    Even if I were an E mount user I still balk at the prices on some of the lenses://www.camerapricebuster.co.uk/Son ...

Sony is ready to launch a GPS module

Sony can make GPS work. They pioneered it in the A55, refined it in the A77, A65 and A99 – and abandoned it without a word in all later A-mount cameras and the entire E-mount series. But they prepped the Multi Function Accessory Shoe to be used with a GPS module – and I believe . . . → Read More: Sony is ready to launch a GPS module

Sony A7 merges NEX and RX lines, RX10 revives classics

Although some of my information back in September was off-mark (writes David Kilpatrick), the post which I put up here was definitely right about the new A7 or rumoured ‘full frame NEX’ being based on the RX body design. I gather it was not the Alpha division, or the NEX division, which handed the prototype . . . → Read More: Sony A7 merges NEX and RX lines, RX10 revives classics

The Japanese industry magazine, Nippon Camera, has posted its calendar of new product releases for 2013. This does not include the Alpha 58, a 20-megapixel revision of the 57 which is not expected to make any significant difference to the choices for DSLR/SLT system owners (that is – it’s not likely to be an imperative . . . → Read More: No new Alphas after the 58 in 2013?
