Olympus OM-D E-M5 Review: Gold Award

This Olympus OM-D E-M5 has been much anticipated by many photo enthusiasts. The rumors sites have been buzzing about this camera and the anticipation of the Image Quality and retro handling that it may provide. With the OM markings this camera is not to be mistaken for the “old school” Olympus OM camera systems but more of a homage to the very popular enthusiast camera of the 70’s to 90’s. The new OM-D E-M5 will not have the same OM lens mount but will instead have a miro four thirds mount. It boasts the worlds fastest contrast type autofocus system […]

Our friends at sonyalpharumors.com posted a review of the NEX pro hot shoe adapter. I’m very confused as to why Sony has to use a proprietary hot shoe mount for their cameras. They’ve always done this on many of their product and early digital camera’s like using memory stick instead of compact flash. It annoys me to no end. Sony why can’t we just have a standard hot shoe?? I understand trying to be different and to sell more products, but do you really make that much money on flashes?? Don’t think so, luckily the Sony NEX-7 is a killer […]

Sony NEX-7: Contax G to NEX adapter

Sony NEX-7: Contax G lens to NEX E mount adapter Almost two decades ago I started my love for rangefinder cameras starting with the Yashica Electro 35. I’ve always coveted the Leica’s but couldn’t afford them so I went with the Contax G1 when it was time to upgrade and do more serious work. The G1 was a great little camera and worked well for what it was, but when the Contax G2 came out I traded in my G1 for the G2 and haven’t gone back since. The Contax G2 fixed the issues that I had with the G1 […]

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 […]
