Introduction Sony FE 70-200 f/4 G OSS is a full frame standard tele-zoom lens made for Sony E-mount cameras.

Sony Alpha A6000 – World’s fastest AF – Part 2

I made few initial AF tests in one of my previous posts - click here, and I promised to make more tests to see if I can come to some conclusion...Meanwhile I saw and received few rude and disrespectful comments, mainly from anonymous people who probably misunderstood my original intention.But let me try to explain…


Sony Alpha A6000 – ISO comparisons, corner smearing, color casting

Sony A6000 besides most prominent feature of Auto Focus performance, brought also new (in Sony camera range) 24 Mpx sensor design.While the resolution remain same as it was on NEX 7 sensor, Sony claim that new sensor has gap-less design, new micro-lenses and of course is linked to the new processor - Bionz X.I can't…


Sony Alpha A6000 – World’s fastest AF?

This new APS-C range finder styled camera from Sony - a6000 is promoted as a game changer when it comes to AF performance.If anything, Sony E-mount cameras are permanently criticized for few things - lack of native lenses, lack of proper weather sealing, bad interface ergonomics and slow Auto Focus.To delete last critics from the…


10 minutes lens test – portrait session

I can't say what is harder - finding "Perfect Lens" or finding "Perfect Testing Method". Especially knowing that neither exist.I published many "controlled" tests, mainly using ISO 12333 chart, but those charts and walls usually tells only part of the story.Unfortunately IMHO, most readers are referring to MTF tests and results, in general terms, considering…


Sony Alpha A7 (ILCE-7) and Sony Alpha A7r (ILCE-7r) Part 9 – FinalShowdown

It took me over 3 months and over 10000 shots with A7 and A7r, to get to the point where I am able to formulate at least partial opinion about those two Sony cameras.  Was I lazy? Yes. Where there other reasons why it took me so long? Unfortunately yes... In the last several chapters…


Sony Alpha A7 (ILCE-7) and Sony Alpha A7r (ILCE-7r) Part 8 – A7 – ultra wide lenses

One of the main reasons why I am testing A7 and A7r is to see if those cameras could replace my Nikon D800E, NEX7 and Canon 5D MII for landscape photography.Ultra wide angle lenses are not always what I would use, but in some situation they are priceless and thus most landscape photographers will pack…


Sony Alpha A7 (ILCE-7) and Sony Alpha A7r (ILCE-7r) Part 7 – A7 – Sensor Flare Problems

Despite that most users went with Sony Alphas A7/r and former NEX's because of their small size and weight, the real benefit for me, was their short flange distance. Short flange (mount to sensor) distance allows me to mount almost any lens ever made on my Sony digital backs, and while most of them would…


Sony Alpha A7r (ILCE-7r) and Robot Lenses

  I needed a break from comparison series, so I dug deep into drawer to find few Robot lenses... Robot - the word was created by Karel Čapek - Czech writer in his novel R.U.R. from 1921. Since than, it become worldwide synonym for intelligent or automatized machines (simplified). But Robot cameras were German. And…
