Sony goes full frame

Posted by

Sony has just announced a stack of cameras and lenses to make the camera forums go nuts…full frame being the magic word. The A99 is a full frame DSLR camera, and the NEX series gets a new iteration with the NEX 6 (though not full frame), along with some much needed lenses for the system, including a 10-18mm, 16-50mm power zoom presumably to match the compact size of panasonics 14-42mm, and a fast 35mm f1.8, which the NEX world had been screaming out for.

Most notable though, is the compact, full frame RX1, with fixed Zeiss T 35mm f2 lens. Sony has been looking over the shoulder at Fuji’s wonderful X series, but packed in the ultimate buzz word feature…full-frame. The Fuji X100 still trumps it with the fantastic built in hybrid viewfithough my humble opinion! Look forward tithe reviews.
