Pre-orders open! Sony A7R III and FE 24-105mm f/4 OSS lens! Oct 25, 2017
Sony announces A7R III, FE 400/2.8 and FE 24-105/4 today!
Sony just announced the all new A7R III full-frame camera. Packing the same 42.4 Megapixel Back-Illuminated CMOS sensor as its predecessor but stuffed with a number of significant improvements inside.

Now capable of 4k HDR video and 10fps continuous shooting with autofocus, it also hosts an improved circuit design that claims to deliver 15 stops of dynamic range.
Both mechanical and electronic shutter modes support 14-bit RAW, and the built-in stabilization now handles 5.5 stops of compensation. Pixel Shift Multi Shooting mode capturing four frames is a new feature that allows the removal of demosaic and false color artifacts in post-production. It should also improve resolution and color fidelity.

The A7R III sensor shares the same 399-point PDAF system as the previous A7R II, but includes an additional 425 contrast-based detection AF points. Auto-focus speed, subject tracking and EyeAF now operate at double the speed, while light levels is down to -3EV.
This camera shoots bursts at up to 10 fps using either the mechanical or silent electronic shutter. For video, 4K HDR recording is available in both full-frame or Super-35 modes. In addition the option of S-Log 3 and Hybrid Log Gamma HDR, as well as 1080 at 120 frames per second is included.

The new Mark III shares many A9 features like dual SD slots, AF joystick, AF-ON button, PC Sync port, Quad VGA OLED viewfinder, and the NP-FZ100 battery pack. The screen is touch-sensitive and there’s both USB-2 and USB-3 ports. Unfortunately PlayMemories apps are no longer supported.

Pre-orders links are now open!

FM Review of the Voigtlander 40mm f/1.2 Nokton Oct 16, 2017
FM Review of the Voigtlander 40mm f/1.2 Nokton
This is an ongoing review of the CV 40/1.2 Nokton lens. I received it yesterday and so far, I was able to test it at infinity distance. I also compared it to the Voigtlander 35mm f/1.7 Ultron with a PCX (Plano-convex) front-lens side-by-side.

This thread will be updated with many other tests like OOF rendering, CA, Coma and sunstar rendition.

The US price for the Nokton 40mm f/1.2 was just announced at $1,059. It's not a cheap lens but it's designed with four aspherical surfaces as seen in this diagram:



It's now in stock!

  1. Field Curvature
  2. Optimum aperture for landscapes at infinity
  3. Infinity distance resolution comparison
  4. Chromatic Aberration (LaCA)
  5. Focus shift
  6. Sunstar Redering
  7. Flare performance
  8. Coma performance
  9. Purple fringing control (LoCA)
  10. Rendering at Mid-distance
  11. Final thoughts
