Sony NEX-7 with Sigma 30mm F2.8 EX DN Lens A friend in Hong Kong “Spike” has posted a review of the Sony NEX-7 with Sigma 30mm F2.8 EX DN Lens. Link; Here’s an excerpt: To my eyes, F5.6 is pretty sharp there, F8 is okay-ish, and then it starts to drop off till it’s seriously fuzzy at F22. But all in all, for a lens that costs around US$200, I’d say the overall results are quite impressive. I’d say for $200.00 its a pretty darn good deal. But I personally wonder if you gain that much with this lens as opposed […]

Sony NEX-7 w/ Voigtlander 85mm 3.5 SC Nikon RF Mount

One of our readers Matt Wilkens has made some very beautiful images with his Sony NEX-7 using a Voigtlander 85mm F3.5 SC with a Nikon RF (Range Finder) mount. He says: My favorite lenses are 24mm 1.8 Zeiss, the 55-210mm Sony E and my Voigtlander APO 85mm Nikon RF mount with adapter ( a bargain around 250 new) I like the image quality of the 85mm Voigtlander almost as much as the Zeiss 24mm, but I do like to have the full function of AF. I’ve asked his permission to show them, because I feel the community would love to see what […]

Fuji X-Pro1 Review. By Ken Rockwell Fuji X-Pro1 can be found at Adorama He has many interesting findings of the camera regarding handling and some much deserved praise for Fuji’s Fujinon 35mm f1.4 lens. Sharper and better than Leica??  You be the judge. Also the low light capabilities are in line with what I’ve found as well as many others. Just amazing!! I’ll be posting some real world low light images for you to see also and I agree with him that the Fuji X-Pro1 is a photographers camera, something that a lot of us have been waiting a long […]

Fuji X-Pro-1 - Unboxing

Fuji X-Pro-1 – Unboxing Fuji X-Pro-1 Body It’s interesting to note that the packaging for the Fuji x-pro 1 is not as nice in my opinion then the Fuji X1oo. The packaging for the x100 was something of a collector’s camera with the faux velvet where the camera sits and the box lid that is held in with ribbon that’s more a kin to a presentation box. This camera is more expensive, similar quality, and the flag ship of the fuji line yet it has a more subdued packaging then the x100. That all being said, I don’t mind it […]

Canon 5d mark III unboxing

This is a busy week, lots of new cameras actually being sent and getting into the hands of the consumers. Thanks to a friend that has graciously allowed me to do the unboxing photo’s and borrow the canon 5d mark iii for some tests. Packaging is typical canon no muss no fuss. I like it that way. Makes me feel that all the money it going to the technology. Let’s hope I’m right. I’m charging up the batteries now on the canon 5d mark iii and the Sony NEX 7 and will have some new posts and test images of […]

Sony NEX 7 unboxing

Finally, after a long long wait I got a hold of a Sony NEX 7 kit. Here are some pictures of the unboxing. Some items of note: the packaging is very well done. You even get a micro fiber cloth that has a NEX 7 tag on it. Wow fancy. I wonder how much of this the consumer is paying for in the price of the camera? Also, kit lens comes with a lens shade which is nice. Not a lot of kit lenses come with a lens shade. Its pretty nice and has a bayonet type twist on type. […]

First Impressions: Using the Nikon D800: Digital Photography Review. Man am I looking forward to seeing for myself the Nikon D800. It’s low light performance is looking really great as compared to the canon 5d mark III and would like to test them head to head in some real world test. Also, being able to use the legacy lenses will make many “old school” photog’s very happy. I love the guys at DPreview. They’re the best in technical reviews for the geek inside all of us. Sometimes I get lost in the charts and comparisons jpegs and the next thing […]
