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.
Packing a 28.2Mp BSI CMOS sensor, the Samsung NX500 is one of the highest-resolution APS-C hybrids cameras currently available. Wasting no time after posting scores for its sister model, the NX1, our latest review analyzes the stats and scores for the NX500.
Building on the success of the full-frame 36-Mpix Sony A7R, the recently announced update to that model looks to be one of the most promising cameras of the year. Along with a slight increase in pixel count over the original, the sensor in the 42-Mpix A7R II offers BSI architecture and on-chip PDAF with 399 points. Read on to find out how well this new sensor performs.
Sony has started to round out the E-mount lens range for their innovative full-frame A7 bodies and APS-C format cameras, and this new 1:1 stabilized macro lens looks to be a promising addition. Read on to find out how well this new model performs.
The Nikon D750 is an affordable 24.3Mp full-frame DSLR with attractive-looking specs for both the enthusiast and the professional photographer. It’s capable of producing outstanding pictures, but the quality of the lens used has a bearing on image quality. We’ve analyzed the performance of 105 lenses on the Nikon D750, and in part one we bring you an analysis of the top three zoom lenses in six different categories.
Boasting a monster 50.6Mp resolution, the $3699 EOS 5DS and $3899 5DS R (which differs due to its low-pass cancellation filter), become the new top-ranked Canon sensors on our database. With screen and print scores checked and verified, let’s analyze the results to see how Canon’s latest full-frame sensor stacks up against the competition.
Concluding our roundup of test results for the latest Sony FE-mount lenses, we take a look at the FE 24-240mm f3.5-6.3 OSS. A superzoom option that offers wide-angle through to long telephoto in a single lens, the FE 24-240mm is a versatile option for those occasions when changing lenses is going to be a pain. Good DxOMark scores are rare for superzooms, though, so let’s see how the Sony does.
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.
Last month’s launch of six new FE mount lenses is great news for Sony enthusiasts shooting with A7 cameras. With only a modest number of FE lenses available until now, the new lenses — including two wide-angle primes, two ultra-wide angle converters, a close-focus macro and versatile superzoom — open up more possibilities on Sony full-frame hybrids. They’ve kept us busy in the lab, too, and the scores are in and verified for the FE 28mm F2.
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.
Olympus’s latest mirrorless hybrid offering, the OM-D E-M5 Mark II, is an updated version of their original and hugely successful E-M5. Boasting a new weather-resistant shell and improvements to its handling and performance capabilities, the latest model sticks with the same resolution 16Mp four-thirds sensor as its predecessor. With the lab tests just in, let’s see how the Sensor Scores for the new OM-D E-M5 Mark II stack up against the competition.
Thanks for your reply! My question is more specific: At what ISO value has the dynamic range of 14.1 stops for the A7R been measured? I could not extract this information out of your sensor score information page. Thanks again, ExRay
I just purchased the Zeiss Otus 1.4/55 together with a Sony A7R 36 Mpixels full frame in order to get the best of the two. Results are outstanding, and fulfill my expectations in terms of resolution for "immersive panoramas". I made test comparisons versus my Canon 5D markII with the EF 2.8/24-70 L and the EF 1.4/50. Results are available at: http://www.motherearthimpressions.com/-/galleries/blog/welcome-otus
Hello, More than a month ago you said: "Sorry but the first test will be only for Sony FE lenses. Then, if we have time we will add Classic Alpha Full Frame lenses." When are you going to test them? It's hard to pick having only 2 lenses tested on Sony A7R. There many lenses to choose from like Sonar 24 f1.8, Distagon 24 f2, Sony 35 f1.8 or 135 f2.8, etc.
Hi Mangoja, Thank you for coming back to us. We're currently performing tests on the zoom FE (24-70mm f/4 and the kit). We have other brands' new lenses to measure at the moment, so new results should be available in Spring.
I have A580, & now want to upgrade to full frame. Sony gives me no chance. Why havibg good alpha lense I have to use adaptor. Sony produced body with no lenses, next years they will release several which price will be over 1000$. I din`t want such mount. I have to sell everything &move to Nikon D610. ------------------------------------------------- http://www.kolosphotography.com/
I know this is somewhat unrealistic to ask, but do you think the DxOMark team at any point will test this camera with different lens manufacturers (Canon, Nikon, Zeiss) with an adapter (say the metabones system)? Right now we can kind of gauge Nikon glass with the D800, but since the A7R's sensor rating is such an increase over any of Canon's products--we only get a general idea of how it would perform. I think the real plus of this camera is not the overall size of it, but the lack of restriction we now have taking the best lenses from the other major players. Just curious, how they combine with the A7R. Thanks!
