Zeiss has launched a new line of lenses for the Sony full frame E-mount, which currently includes the A7, A7R and A7S models. The two lenses launching the Sony E-mount are the Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Biogon T* and the Zeiss Loxia 50mm f/2 Planar T*, which are priced at $1299 and $949, respectively.

B&H has the Sony A7S in stock and shipping. Additionally, B&H is offering a 15% credit on any Sony A7-series camera or kit when you trade in any working DSLR or mirrorless camera.
That’s an instant $375 off the Sony A7S in addition to the value of whatever camera you trade in. You can also stack the 15% credit savings with select lenses and the battery grip. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
The camera features a 12MP full frame sensor and captures 4K video to external devices by outputting the signal through its HDMI port. Early results promise stunning low-light shooting capability with an impressive sensitivity range covering ISO 50-409,600.
The A7S will ship in July. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Previously, I shared the Sony A7s press conference unveiling and a rudimentary ISO test of the Sony A7s with several sample images at 100% shot on the show floor for NAB 2014.
Aside from the 4K capability, one thing everyone is talking about on the new Sony A7S is the new 12MP sensor and the ridiculous low light sensitivity that it delivers.
I got some hands-on time with the Sony A7s today and took several shots at various ISO levels. Below, I have assembled 100% crops of the images from the center of the frame from ISO 100-102400. [Read more...]
Sony has posted sample footage from the new A7s on YouTube in full 4K resolution. Not that many people have a monitor to view it in full 4K resolution, but it’s there nonetheless. Of course, you can still get a great impression of the camera from the full HD version.
