It’s a sad day for the photo industry. Imaging Resource, one of the most respected and uncompromising camera review websites in the world, is shutting down.

A readers sent me the image on top showing the new Voigtlander 21mm f/1. 4 FE lens. He quickly tested the lens and said this: Even if wide open, Resolution is good enough. But had some vinetting and coma.
This size comparison made by Apotelyt gives you a clear idea of how small this RX0II is. Simply cool :) The new Sony RX0II at Amazon US ,BHphoto, FocusCamera and Adorama. In Europe at Calumet Germany and ParkCameras UK.

Dxomark tested the A6400 sensor and there is really a small difference: Anyone comparing the Sony A6300 and A6400 will find the results intriguing. Although the two models share a similar sensor resolution (pixel count) and the overall results are very close, the measurements are not identical.
Nikon recently stated that high end DSLR sports camera are still superior but this might not be true anymore: The new Sony A9 5. 0 firmware has been tested by Tony Northrup. He now states the A9 AF tracking is better on the Sony A9 than on the Nikon D5.

First real world Sony A9 autofocus testing shows this is the best firmware update ever made by Sony yet!
Finally Sony learned the leasson from Fuji’s camera support philosophy and released their best firmware update to date. This adds a ton of features and fixes for the A9 making it become a sort of A9II :) But they key here is the new autofocus system which simply works like a charm.
David Oastler tested the new A64000 to see if it had some overheating issue. Luckely he encountered no issues at all.

Sidney Diongzon compared the Sony’s new Real-Time autofocus system of the Sony A6400 versus the highly accliamed Canon Dual Pixel Autofocus system. And the good news is that Sony managed to beat the Canon! This very same new AF system is coming on the A9 via firmware update on March 25.

Nikon Z7 sensor tested by DxOmark: “can’t match the Sony A7R III for the majority of the sensitivity range”
DxOmark published the full Nikon Z7 sensor test: With the exception of the uppermost sensitivity values, the Nikon Z 7 has a near-identical signal-to-noise ratio to the D850. And although they are both very good, neither can match the Sony A7R III for the majority of the sensitivity range.
When it comes to the video performance the new $899 Sony A6400 literally destorys the new $1299 Canon EOS-RP. It beats the hell out of the Canon in terms of dynamic range, video specs, autofocus speed and so on… Check out Max Yuryevs video! Sony A6400: USA at BHphoto, Adorama, FocusCamera, Buydig, Amazon.

This is only my speculation but I suspect the Zeiss ZX1 might be the real Sony RX1RII successor. I see no reason why Sony should continue this line of cameras unless they come up with something unexpected (like curved sensor, or medium format sensor).
Two news to report: First, DxO is back testing cameras (see press note at the bottom) Second, they tested the Nikon Z6 sensor and surprise surprise…. there is no surprise :) It uses the same A7III sensor and results are very similar.

This is an approximative size comparison between the new Tamron 17-28mm f/2. 8 and the Sony 16-35mm f/2. 8. Note: It’s a bit difficult to make an accurate size comparison. We only have one image of the new 17-28mm lens which has a slight tilt that is different from the Sony.

Patrick Murphy-Racey: These are two clips that I got to shoot when testing the new Sony A9 5. 0 Firmware in Los Angeles last week. The new tracking feature is already inside the Sony A6400 bodies that will start shipping in February of 2019.
Tony: Sony’s new focusing system in the a6400 and (soon, via firmware update) in the Sony a9, a7R III, and a7 III, drastically changes how we shoot. The eye detect focusing feature used to be quite unreliable, but after the firmware update, it’s basically 100%.
