10 Features That Make the Sony A7 and A7R Excellent Full Frame Video Cameras

One of the things I wanted to do during my review of the Sony A7 and A7R was to put the video features through their paces.

Samyang Introduces Full Frame Lenses for Sony E-Mount

Samyang E-Mount Lenses

New Sony A7 and A7R owners can rejoice. Samyang has introduced five new full-frame lenses for Sony E-mount, including:

  • Samyang 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC
  • Samyang 24mm f/1.4 ED AS IF UMC
  • Samyang T-S 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC
  • Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC
  • Samyang 85mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC

So far, only the 14mm f/2.8 lens is available for pre-order. Expect the others to follow soon.

With the warm reception we’ve seen from the Sony A7 and A7R, expect the third-party lens lineup to continue to grow for the Sony E-mount. Also, while these lenses were clearly released in response to the A7 and A7R, they are also compatible with the Sony APS-C E-mount cameras.
