What's In Your Bag - Bob Krist


Here is what Bob Krist carries with him on travel assignments. This kit allows Mr. Krist to shoot high resolution images and capture 4K video in a minimal package.

  1. Sony A7r II used in APS-C mode. This affords the use of smaller APS-C lenses.
  2. Sony 10-18mm f/4 Wide Angle Zoom Lens
  3. Zeiss 16-70mm f/4 Zoom Lens
  4. Sony 35mm f/1.8 Lens
  5. Sony RX10 II - I wonder if he's switched to the RX10 III with even more range, a 28-600mmm lens.
  6. Sony
    Action Cam on a selfie stick.
  7. Hot-shoe mounted Sony ECMXYST1M Stereo Microphone
  8. Sony ECMW1M Wireless Microphone
  9. Sony NP-FW50 Batteries for the A7r II and RX 10 II.
  10. Sony NP-BX1 Batteries for the RX100
  11. Sony
    RX-100 IV (Not Shown) used to record the video below.

NEX 16-50mm 35mm 10-18mm Lenses

New Sony NEX Lenses with the Old
Photos by Alpha604


Here are the newly announced Sony NEX lenses with the 16mm pancake and the 24mm Zeiss ZA E. The three new lenses are all native E-mount, feature Optical Steady Shot (OSS), and come in black.

The smallest of the new lenses is the 16-50mm Power Zoom lens. The lens is very compact yet provides an equivalent fov of 24mm to 75mm. The retractable zoom lens has a very small filter thread of ø40.5mm, similar to Minolta CLE lenses.

The lens to the right of the 16-50 PZ is the 35mm f/1.8 lens. This lens provides an efov of 52.5mm - perfect for street photography. It has a filter diameter of ø49mm similar to the 50mm f/1.8 OSS and the 30mm macro - both are being discounted at the moment.

The last and the largest of the new NEX lenses is the 10-18mm wide angle zoom lens. The efov is 15mm to 27mm, perfect for close quarters shooting. The lens has a constant maximum aperture of f/4 and a large front element with a ø62mm filter thread. The wide angle zoom's length is comparable to the 24mm Zeiss.

New Sony NEX Lenses Size Comparison


Which of the new Sony E-mount lenses are on your wish list? All the lenses are shorter in length than the 24mm Zeiss Sonnar. The image below should give us an idea of the size of the new lenses on a Sony NEX.

Three New Sony E-mount Lenses

Three New E-Mount Lenses Announced

Here are three new Sony E-mount lenses for your NEX-3 to NEX-7 Cameras. All provide automated function on your Alpha NEX Cameras. This fulfills the Sony NEX lens roadmap for 2012. Three new Sony lenses are scheduled for next year, a medium magnification zoom, a medium telephoto prime lens, and a pancake prime lens. *As Bilou pointed out below, a fourth lens is coming later this year, a high performance "G" standard zoom.

sel1018 10mm-18mm e-mount lens oss

NEX-6 with 10-18mm f/4 OSS Lens

This would be a great travel lens where tight streets require a wide angle lens. The 10-18mm focal length converts to 15mm-27mm EFOV on the APS-C sensor. The wide angle zoom SEL1818 can be pre ordered for $849 with a delivery by mid November.
The SEL-1018 super wide-angle zoom lens is perfect for taking photos of sweeping landscapes and producing striking images with emphasized perspective. If you're seeking a wider minimum focal length than offered by standard wide-angle zoom lenses, the SEL-1018 is the ideal choice for you. Featuring a minimum focal length of only 10mm (15mm in 35mm camera equivalency), the SEL-1018 wide-angle zoom lens delivers highly-detailed, super wide-angle photos. With a constant maximum aperture of f/4 through the entire focal length range, you'll be able to use the widest aperture at every focal length. Even in low light, you can take advantage of the bright aperture to utilize fast shutter speeds without needing to increase ISO sensitivity.



16mm 50mm powerzoom oss e-mount lens selp1650

NEX-6 with 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 PowerZoom Lens

A replacement for the standard 18-55mm OSS kit lens. The retractable powerzoom 16-50mm OSS lens provides an FOV of 24mm to 75mm. Good general purpose lens in a small package. The SELP1650 is priced at $349.

Sony 16-50mm PowerZoom in Action

Measuring just 3/16" (29.9mm) when fully retracted, this SELP-1650 retractable zoom lens is super compact and easy to carry so you can quickly whip out your camera and spontaneously grab shots as they occur. It's perfect for traveling and other scenarios that require a lightweight, compact camera and lens combo. It covers a 16mm to 50mm range (35mm equivalent = 24-75mm) for flexible shooting, and is equipped with one ED (extra-low dispersion) and four aspherical elements, resulting in a high-performance lens that is surprisingly compact.



35mm 1.8 oss e-mount lens sel35f18

35mm f/1.8 OSS E-mount Lens

This would be the perfect companion to the 10-18mm f/4 lens. The 35mm f/1.8 lens provides light when indoors or the sun goes down. The 50mm EFOV is the classic standard versatile focal length for street photographers. The SEL35F18 will cost $449.
High performance and a compact design make the SEL-35F18 prime lens an ideal second lens that's easy to carry around while capturing the action. It's perfect for a wide variety of photos, including snapshots while strolling, night shots (thanks to the bright maximum aperture) and portraits with beautifully defocused backgrounds. Newly-designed optics reduces spherical aberration and coma for sharp images even when shooting wide open. Combined with built-in Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, your photos and videos will be crisp, clear and blur-free.
