  • A quick look at the new Sony 18-105 f/4 G

    I took the new Sony SELP18105G for a test ride. First impression: The lens is solid, well built and has two rings – one to zoom and one to focus. What makes here stand out from other lenses is a small lever which can also be used to zoom. It looks like it was thought […]

  • The ultramacro lens for Sony Nex

    The ultramacro lens for Sony Nex

    Actually I do not think the Yasuhara Nanoha is not really a macro lens. It is more like the missing link between a macro lens and a microscope. The lens comes with a  3 LED lighting which is fixed to the lens. A screw driver is included, so you could remove it. There is also […]

    There are a lot of pixels on that lovely Sony Nex-7. So many I could crop in the picture. The Nex-7 has 24.3 MPixel on the sensor. The base file was 6000×4000 (24MP) and the final picture was a square crop 2580×2580 (6.7MP). That’s about 28% still left.

    Review of Sigma 30mm f/2.8 EX DN Sharpness

    So I made some further observations after the first review yesterday. I also got a message telling me that other and more detailed shots are needed to see. So here we go. Below you will find the corner and center crops from shots I took today in the morning. The shots were made handheld and […]

  • Quick review of the Sigma 30mm 1:2.8 EX DN for Sony Nex E-Mount

    Quick review of the Sigma 30mm 1:2.8 EX DN for Sony Nex E-Mount

    When I first took it out of the packaging I thought it was broken. But the lens element is not fixed if the lens is not “on”, aperture is closed. Size is smaller than the 18-55 kit lens, I would say it is as if someone cut the kit lens between zoom and focus ring. […]
