To provide photographers with a broader perspective about mobiles, lenses and cameras, here are links to articles, reviews, and analyses of photographic equipment produced by DxOMark, renown websites, magazines or blogs.
We continue our optical analysis of Sony’s latest FE-mount lenses, this time examining the performance of the $1598 Sony Carl Zeiss Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA. A professional-grade “fast” aperture wide-angle prime, the new lens is specifically designed for use on Sony A7 hybrid cameras. Including three aspherical lens elements and Zeiss T* coatings for enhanced image quality, let's hope for great results as we run though our industry standard tests.
Packing a 28.2Mp APS-C sensor, 4K-video and 15fps burst shooting, the new Samsung NX1 is hot news on the hybrid scene. For a full overview of features and specifications, check out our NX1 Preview. And now with the NX1’s sensor measurements in and verified, let’s see what Samsung’s latest NX hybrid camera has to offer.
A year on from launching the world's first full frame hybrid camera Sony have unveiled its successor, the a7 II. Claiming another world first the new Sony a7 II is the first full frame interchangeable lens camera to feature a 5-axis image stabilisation system. But what else is new? We trawl through the new Sony a7 II spec sheet to find out.
One of the hottest launches from this year’s Photokina trade show, the Nikon D750, has grabbed the attention of serious amateurs and pros alike. Boasting a newly developed 24.3Mp sensor, expanded ISO sensitivity range and a host of features from their pro DSLRs it looks a mouth-watering prospect. Lets take a look at the D750 sensor scores and results to see how it stacks up against the full frame competition.
Zeiss have unveiled two new ‘Loxia’ full frame E mount lenses for the Sony a7 series. Both lenses feature a ‘fast’ f/2 maximum aperture, manual focus and function to deactivate the mechanical aperture for shooting video. Offering a moderate wide-angle 35mm and standard 50mm focal lengths, let's see what Zeiss have in store for Sony a7 shooters.
If you read the forums on colleagues’ sites lots of users lament the selling of their old full-frame Canon EOS 5D, Nikon D700 or even their bulky Nikon D3 or D3s. Practically every user, so it seems, says their pictures from those old models had something special that the newer models lack. Sony think they may be on to something and have introduced the A7S a full-frame model with a newly-developed 12.2-Mpix CMOS sensor. Read on to find out well this new model performs?
We’ve analyzed the image quality of the 20-Mpix Sony A5000 with over 20 zooms and primes. Read on to find out which of those models you should be using with Sony’s smallest and lightest mirrorless model.
Mitakon have unveiled a new ‘ultra fast’ prime lens for Sony’s mirrorless FE lens mount. Compatible with Sony’s full-frame a7 series of mirrorless cameras, the Mitakon SpeedMaster Series FE 50mm f/0.95 promises excellent images in low light, for both stills photographers and videographers. We delve into the spec’ sheet to find out more.
Sony has launched a new translucent mirror option in their Alpha range of interchangeable lens cameras. Boasting a new autofocus system and greater ISO sensitivity, will the Sony a77 II become the king of APS-C cameras? We look back at its predecessor, the Sony a77, and consider recent Sony sensor scores, to help us decide.
At less than half the price of the marginally wider, slightly faster Zeiss 24-70mm f4, this in-house Sony model looks like a tempting alternative, but can it meet the demands of the high-resolution sensor in the A7R? Read on to find out.
Hello DxOMark, I appreciate really a lot the scientific approach to measure lenses quality. Sorry for submit again this question - alredy posted on this group - but I see you tested all the Sony FE on the amazing A7R, and I would like to know if you plan to make also some tests (at least 1 lens) on A7 in few months. Regards Paolo
Hi, Thank you for your interest in DxOMark. We are still working on it, and we should be able to assess lenses on these two cameras before the end of September. I advise you to stay tuned via our RSS feeds and by joining our Facebook and Twitter communities: https://www.facebook.com/DxOMark https://twitter.com/DxOMark
hi dxomark, just wondering when will you be reviewing the new sony ICLE-6000? I'm very interested in how it compares to the A7 and NEX-7. Also, will you test the sigma 19mm f2.8 for E-mount lens? Thank you!
I have Sony A580, now I want to upgrade to full frame. And I really have no posibility. A99 have much noise on high iso, and price is more than better Nikon d800 & Nikon d610. Why Sony can`t produce full frame for photographers? After A900 there were no new full frame bodies. It`s wrong way. Someone in your company do everything to loose your clients. Also they want to sell theeir lenses twice price with the same picture quality. I mean sony 16-50\2.8 vs. tamron 17-50\2.8. So, I have to say good-bye Sony, hello Nikon D610 !!! -------------------------------- http://www.kolosphotography.com/
Hi, I'm tuned 3 months and still no results here :) I'm really looking forward. I have D7100 and I bought lenses thanks to your side. I saved some money and got sharp and really good lenses. But the time of A7 is coming... :)
