Sigma is one of the few manufacturers who produces AF lenses for Sony E-mount cameras. The 30mm F2.8 DN Art is a compact prime for Sony APS-C cameras. It has been on the market for a while, but is still one of the most popular lenses due to the combination of high image quality and reasonable price.
This is a brief first impression review of the Sony Alpha 6300 , an E-mount mirrorless camera with a 24 megapixel APS-C sensor. The A6300 was released in 2016, but it is still a very competitive product, especially considering that it is currently available for half of its original MSRP. Continue reading Sony Alpha 6300
A list of all available APS-C lenses for Sony E-mount cameras.
The Sony 100-400mm GM is a super telephoto lens for full frame E-mount cameras and currently the longest native zoom lens available for this system. GM is short for G Master, Sony’s premium lens line. So is it just an expensive piece of glass or a masterpiece? Let’s find out if Sony is able to match the expectations.
A short review of the Sony Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 2,8/35 ZA (SEL-35F28Z ) prime lens for Sony full frame mirrorless cameras.
When Sony announced the A7III E-mount full frame camera a couple months back, it was quite surprising to see that they basically packed ~95% of the features of the high-end models A7rIII and A9 into this midrange camera.
A quick review of the DSTE travel and car charger for the Sony NP-FZ100 batteries, a replacement for the Sony BC-QZ1.
Given that the original charger (BC-QZ1) costs ~100€, this alternative for less than 10€ does look very appealing.
The first full frame E-mount camera was introduced in 2014 and Sony and Zeiss have been releasing new lenses ever since. Also other manufacturers have started to create lenses for the E-mount system. The lens lineup has reached a pretty good stage, but some obvious gaps still exist. First of all, there is currently only one true telephoto lens (the 100-400mm GM), and secondly, there is no 35mm F2 with autofocus. What? Seriously?!
I have composed a complete list of all lenses for Sony full frame E-mount cameras (A7 and A9 series). I’ve only included lenses that were designed for the shorter flange distance of E-mount (no adapted DSLR lenses). Also, I intentionally left out cine or other speciality lenses.
Lens Rentals has taken the Sony A7r3 apart and analyzed the weather sealing. The photos provided give some really interesting insights into the highly complex interior of the camera. The conclusion of Lens Rentals turns out positive for the Sony: “Except for the bottom this camera has thorough and extensive weather sealing, as good as any camera I’ve seen.”
