The new Sony A7s is also on the way to the Lab, so I will test it out in great detail 😉 Requests welcomed if you want me to try something in particularity, just let me know asap! I will test it out with the 23mm f/2.8 Zeiss prime and my Canon L gear via the metabones III lens adapter. I don’t have a 4k TV unfortunately, but I will do what I can with the video for sure!
Guess what else is coming?
The RX100 III, oh yeah!
Sorry to those looking forward to the A77 II and 70-200mm lenses, but I just did not get enough interest in the DSLR camera. Therefore my time is better spent reviewing the new A7s and RX100 III first, then perhaps the A77 II if nothing new comes out of course 😉
On another note, Brian Smith who is an amazing photographer and also a Sony Artisan, has a great Feild Test article on the Sony A7s worth checking out (click here)
Sony RX10 Killer?
Until now, nothing has seriously competed with the amazing Sony RX10 in my opinion. However, Panasonic just came out with a whopper of a bridge camera called the FZ1000, and Sony should have come out with first! Now, Sony will have to answer this with something better, or more cost effective. Sony’s answer so far is to drop the price of the RX10 by $300 to a more reasonable $998 price point. With the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ1000 coming in at just under $900, it’s a huge threat on paper and worth considering. Lets take a closer look…
Sony RX10 vs Panasonic FZ1000
Looks pretty clear that Sony has some work to do if they want to keep the #1 status on the best all in one bridge camera ever made. Right now it looks like the FZ1000 is going to really give it a run for the money and some… How the fz1000 preforms in the real world head to head will remain to be seen, but TheCameraStoreTV did do a solid review already and it’s just below if you want to check it out. So far it looks better than the RX10 in my opinion based on what I have seen, features, and price point.
