Hi everybody and welcome to Sonyalphalab! Have not been around much lately, but we just had a new member of the family born!! A baby boy to be specific and his name is Jase Peter Hermann, Born – 08/12/14 – 7lbs 8.5oz 🙂 So now the family consists Michele and I, Layla, who just turned 4 years old, Jase who is currently 1 week old, and Chubs the dog, who is around 6 years 🙂 More on the family below…
I also wanted to tell you guys I have changed my mind set on the social networking situation and what not. Basically, I have been spending way to much time on Google+ and should be focusing my efforts on the Forum! My Google+ posts go away in a matter of a few hours, but the forum efforts stay there forever, therefore much more worth while. So Instead of sharing links on Google+ and Twitter all the time, I will be posting on the Sony Forum daily. I will only be posting quality articles and full reviews on the main Sonyalphalab site from now on. All other posts will be happening on the forum with the must see stuff being promoted to the “Whats Hot??” Page (Click Here) So, that page is going to be the new place to check out during the day for updates on deals, rumors, reviews links, and stuff like that. Good articles that take me a few days to write will still be here on the main sonyalphalab website still, so don’t worry about that.
We also have the re-lease of the New Sony Alpha A5100 which is basically the A5000 w/ the A6000 sensor and touchscreen added. It’s extremely light weight and high quality with the 24mp sensor, so Quadcopter users looking to upgrade their HD Cameras should consider this if they demand really high quality. The older 5 series nex cameras are also great for aerial work in particular. The clean HDMI out on the A5100 also makes it great for connecting to transmitting gear or external recording devices. I wrote more about the A5100 on the Forum Here>>

My New Boy Jase
We were at the hospital for a few days and made it just in time! Michele had the baby just fine with no issues and everybody is perfectly healthy 🙂 He looks so much like Layla it’s amazing to me, but he is a brother so it does make sense. Note the more masculine features, yet Layla face in the side by side. So cool….. I took these all with the Sony A7s and sel35f28 lens.

That is about it for now everybody, but as you can see the forum is hopping on the daily with News, Rumors, Deals, User Photography, Video, Tutorials, Q & A, and all sorts of other stuff if you are really looking to hang out 😉 All are welcome as registration is finally back open officially!
What you can expect next on SonyAlphaLab is most likely my highly detailed Sony Alpha A7s Review which I am working on now. Unless some crazy announcement is made of course. I got all the A7s photos and video I need, I just have to put it all together now. After that I was thinking about reviewing the new Zeiss Touit 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens, and possible the RX100 III. I also have a request for the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 lens. That is always subject to change, but so far that is what I’m leaning towards.
Please feel free to ask questions and comments below as always.
Have a great day,
