    Thank you JB. Yes, of course it is the lens, the camera and the subject. What else is there, right? Jeff, thank you. Yes, indeed, she is admonishing me. No A7RII AND FE90f2.8. Some how as I am reading about that new body, I am not going through as much existential angst as I did […]

    Can't compare with the Batis, but I can tell you the performance of the 24mm ZA SSM is transformed by using the A7RII. It hunts a lot before fixing focus on all the other A7 bodies, but just zips straight to focus and tracks perfectly on the A7RII with LA-EA4. I'd say it compares directly […]

    Great pictures Sury. The first one is my favorite and in the last one I can almost hear her saying, "huh-uh Sury. I said one more toy, not two. Now be a good boy and put one of them back."Statistics: Posted by the_hefay — Thu Aug 27, 2015 8:05 pm

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
