    I just purchased the 50mm FE lens along with the a7rII. BTW, bought them from Adorama They're still on their way.I opted namely for that 50mm because:a- it's cheapb- I had to buy a lens with it (Batis 25 or 18mm where not in stock)c- even the Voigtlander 15mm III wasn't in stock (I always […]

They need a very exotic kind of glass and special, hard to find expertise to make them. QA is a big expense too since so many get rejected for letting in the occasional […]

B&H has Hasselblad HV offer again

I feel slightly sick… I’ve spent so much on buying and replacing successive Sony A7 series cameras and their lenses that I can’t just buy this outright, which I would love to do. I sold my A99 to get the A7R (subsequently replaced by A7II, and now by A7R II) and have regretted it in so […] . . . → Read More: B&H has Hasselblad HV offer again

Blad bling going for a song

Well, I never really liked what Hasselblad did with the smaller Sony cameras – but what they did with the A99 is pretty cool, with the different body skin and control details. At the original price? A rip-off! For $3999 including a 24-70m CZ lens and a special case – a bargain. This is still an […] . . . → Read More: Blad bling going for a song

Sony’s Alpha 99 – mastery wrapped in dilemma

A99 with 28-75mm lens

The launch of and initial reaction to Sony’s Alpha 99 has been spoiled, for many, by the overpricing of the camera generally and to a greater degree in some key markets. The promise of the SLT design, and Sony’s move away from flapping mirrors and optical prisms with their associated collimation and alignment, was one […] . . . → Read More: Sony’s Alpha 99 – mastery wrapped in dilemma

The EVF future

At photokina 2010, Paul Genge from Sony pretty much told me that Sony’s future lay in the EVF (translucent mirror or otherwise, Electronic View Finder) models. He was not able to say anything firm. Since then, I’ve spoken to him on several occasions and he has repeated that Sony left all options open but the […] . . . → Read More: The EVF future
