    .They are beautiful, Sury, and you captured them nicely. They are not as pink as the ones that live in Africa or some other places probably due to distinctive what they feed on here, around these habitats. Not much red algae or invertebrates, apparently. They are a beautiful contrast, tough. Thanks for sharing,YildizStatistics: Posted by […]

Sony 28-75mm f/2.8 SAM on mirrorless FF

With the 24-70mm f/2.8 new Sony GM FE lens selling for £1799 (UK) and the A-mount version two 24-70mm f/2.8 for a full £100 more, the cost of a basic mid-range zoom to use with a camera like the A7RII remains very high. There are good arguments to be happy with the 24-70mm f/4 . . . → Read More: Sony 28-75mm f/2.8 SAM on mirrorless FF

Sony A7R II review by David Kilpatrick

Sony’s A7R II has a unique position in the mirrorless ILC world, creating the largest image files at over 42 megapixels from an in-body five axis stabilised sensor with exceptional performance given by backside illuminated CMOS.

Sony A7R II, RX10 II, RX100 IV – making everything else obsolete

(Updated June 15th after press conference)

The new Sony A7R II is the camera I’ve been waiting for, which everyone has predicted, and which seems to tick every box without having a huge price label on its own. I find the $3,200 (UK coinfirmed £2,600) matches its stated specifications well. Others may disagree, but . . . → Read More: Sony A7R II, RX10 II, RX100 IV – making everything else obsolete
