New big Sony announcement in early May! FE lenses to be announced?

Share

We got words from very highly trusted sources that Sony will have a big announcement event in May! While there will be likely one new camera only (An A-mount A77II) there should be also a new FE lens announcement! And if the Sony roadmap is still valid than this should be two new Zeiss lenses: A f/4. ultrawide zoom and a fast prime lens (probably a 85mm f/1.8 or f/1.4).

Sources also told me Sony is pushing the FE lens development. It’s the first priority in their imaging division!

Sony A7r Light Leak video by Ferrell McCollough

The probably most popular mirrorless camera curiously share the same issue: A light leak on the mount!

As SonyAlphaRumors reports the issue is minor but visible. Sony is working on a fix for those that want to get rid of the problem. A cheap and temporary solution has been explained by Ferrel McCollough.

And also Camera.Reviewed reports about the Fuji X-T1 having the same issue. But Fuji already offers a service where you can send in the camera and they will repair it within 10 days!

And if you need to read some more enthusiastic reviews to convince yourself to buy one than check out this list of new tests:

Review by CameraLabs:

The Fujifilm X-T1 is an outstanding camera, boasting superb image quality, a fantastic viewfinder and continuous autofocus which actually works, letting you successfully capture subjects in motion. All this plus superb manual focusing assistance and Wifi with smartphone remote control packed into a compact but perfectly proportioned weatherproof body. It’s one of the best cameras around at this price point whether mirrorless or DSLR and one I can highly recommend.

Review by ThePhoBlographer:

The X-T1 is a street photographer’s dream. I’ve been using it every day for nearly three weeks for a photo365 project I’m working on, and with the 35mm f1.4 affixed to it, shooting is an absolute breeze. The camera’s inconspicuous enough that I don’t get strange looks. The X-T1 can bend to nearly any photographic need in my estimation, save for sports and wildlife photography due to Fujifilm’s lack of fast telephoto lenses.

Review by Trustedreviews:

The X-T1 combines excellent design with a specification that makes it great value even at its circa-£1000 price tag. Above all, it produces breathtaking images and can be relied upon whatever the conditions, making it perhaps the best CSC on the market.
