New Sony Gear Just Arrived! Sony A5000, SEL1670Z and SEL2470Z lenses


Some new gear just arrived at the lab including the Sony A5000 w/ 16-50mm kit lens, the 16-70mm f/4 OSS Zeiss lens, and the full frame E-mount 24-70mm f/4 OSS lens that I will test on my newly acquired Sony A7r 😉 Should be a great time testing all this new Sony gear in the lab and real world. The snow is all melting where I live in NY, so the streams and rivers are flowing full. Water photos should be great this month and I’m going to hunt out a few waterfalls for sure.

I know a lot of you are drooling over the A6000 and I certainly want to get that asap, but it won’t be available to me until April 23rd or so I was told. So, in the mean time I really wanted to test the two Zeiss zoom lenses and the latest 5-series mirroless camera from Sony, the Alpha A5000.


Quick Gear Overview

a5000-front-selfyThe Sony Alpha A5000 is the latest 5-series mirrorless camera and it replaces the Nex-5r pretty much. It does not have the hybrid AF or touchscreen like the more expensive Nex-5T, but it does offer the new Bionz X processor and a 20.1mp sensor. The faster processor should make the AF performance similar to the Sony A7r I believe, which was about as good as the A7 in the real world. It’s basically faster contrast AF due to the processor speed and makes up for the lack of hybrid AF a bit. A higher resolution sensor and slightly less features make the A5000 a tempting offer for those looking for better image quality and self portraits or recording ability at a lower cost than the Nex-5t. The A5000 goes for ~ $498 w/ the 16-50mm kit lens @ BHPhoto

SEL1670ZNext we have the best all in one lens option for the crop factor e-mount mirrorless cameras, the 16-70mm f/4 OSS Zeiss lens (sel1670z). The range is excellent and f/4 is good enough considering it’s constant and so long. OSS should really keep things steady and provide some smooth hand-held video footage. I will certainly put it through so serious testing, don’t worry!

sel2470zLastly we have the other killer zoom that everybody is drooling over and tearing apart for some flaws, the 24-70mm f/4 OSS Zeiss Lens (sel2470z). The range is also very good on this lens and f/4 is a nice aperture for the full frame format in my opinion. I love my Canon 24-105 f/4 lens for that very same reason! f/4 will still get you amazing separation with a full frame camera as you will see soon enough 😉

You may recall a website I mentioned a while back called I did not give up on it but I just did not have the time to keep up with it and all the other stuff going on with the website hacking and losing the forum etc.. It was pretty hard for a while, but finally things have calmed down a bit. So, I added a few more cameras to to the Mirrorless Camera Reviews Area, and plan to finish the website in the next year or so hopefully. Then I will just have to add new cameras and reviews as they come out. What I’m struggling with is camera manufactures? Do I really need all of them?

I’m thinking not, and perhaps I will just do Sony, Fujifilm, Olympus, Panasonic, and perhaps Pentax? I really don’t think Nikon and Canon are necessary as so many other websites are already dedicated to just them and Sigma or Samsung?

Your thoughts and constructive feedback would be very highly appreciated if you have the time. I’m making the website for you guys, so what do think it needs or does not need? Check out the A5000 reviews for reference >>


Closing Remarks

That is about it for now, but thanks for checking in and please stay tuned for some first impressions of all the new gear. I’ll probably do an open box video so you can see what all the current packaging looks like. I haven’t done that in a awhile and I got some new lights for the lab, so recording video should be much better quality thanks to a way lower ISO.

I also got some new camera rigging gear that should allow for some awesome video effects, but I need to figure it all out still. Tomorrow should be a fun day in the lab 🙂

Have a great weekend and please feel free to ask questions or comment below.

Thanks again,

    “The faster processor should make the AF performance similar to the Sony A7r I believe”

    Please correct me if I’m wrong but I thought the Bionz processors really only convert the raw data to jpeg. If not, I’ve been mistakenly ignoring all the processor talk over the years because I shoot raw.

    As for allyourcamerareviews, I like the look of the site so far. I’ll dig into it deeper but honestly I think the domain name is too unwieldy. I know good .coms are hard to come by these days but consider a shorter name, on a .co or other TLD if not available on .com. For example alphacamerareviews or something. Just my opinion. Keep up the good work.

      Hi Bobson and thank you very much taking the time to reply with some constructive feedback 😉

      In regards to the processor and AF performance. Yes, the faster Bionz processor makes the contrast detection AF faster according to Sony. I did not realize it was the processor speed either, but when you factor in the scene recognition technology and the cameras abilities to process what the sensor is capturing it makes some sense. The camera has to find the high contrast areas, and the faster processor helps with that somehow. It also converts the raw data and allows for faster fps… I can assure you the new AF speed is fast, because the A7r focused just as fast as the A7 from all the testing I did. And that is A7 hybrid sensor vs contrast detection only a7r. I will find out for sure later today when I do some real world testing!

      As far as Allyourcamerareviews, I greatly appreciate the feedback 😉

      Thanks again,

    If all the rumors are correct, looks like we might be hearing about a new 4K camera and new full frame lens or two after Sony’s announcement later today? I am personally more interested in additional FF lenses however, seems there is some excitement over 4K possibilities.

    Jay, what’s the genesis behind your new website ? Just branching out beyond Sony systems? It’s certainly an interesting site. Since jumping in to more enthusiast advanced photography technique and equipment, all I know to date is Sony Nex 6 and A7r. The more I learn, I am frankly starting to become interested to rent/try out another system just so I have something to compare–for me, your new site is a good place to start my research particularly since you the reviewer are very familiar with the +/- of Sony systems. 😉

      Thanks LBJ2 for the comments and feedback!

      I also hope more full frame e-mount lenses will be coming soon. My guess is a quality powerzoom for the full frame would be wanted by many?

      As far as AYCR’s, it’s purpose is to funnel all the good camera information on the web to one spot. Sort of like how SonyAlphaRumors does it with rumors, I wanted to try and create something that has it all in one spot. Review links, Rumor links, Deal and rebate links, plus all the camera info. I also wanted to make it easy to see what the competition is offering. I don’t necessary want all the camera manufactures on the website, but want more than just Sony.

      Thanks again,
