Canon 6D vs NEX-7 with Speedbooster

Canon 6D vs Sony NEX-7 with Metabones Speedbooster


Tarocoo wanted to see what the NEX-7 with the Canon EF to E-mount Speedbooster can do against his full frame Canon 6D. He had access to a multitude of manual focus lenses which can be used on both E-mount and EF mount (EOS). The Speedbooster's final EFOV on the NEX APS-C sensor is about 1.1x the focal lenght - so the EFOV is close to the Canon 6D with the full frame sensor. The lenses used are:

  • Sigma 24mm f/2.8
  • Sigma 28mm f/2.8
  • Olympus 35mm f/2.0
  • Sigma 50mm f/1.4

The images will show the whole scene at wide open to an aperture of f/11. It will be followed by center and corner crops at same aperture range. Here we go...

Thanks to Tarocco for performing the tests and sharing the samples with us.

Sony A7 Hybrid vs Contrast Detect Autofocus

Sony A7 Hybrid Autofocus


It may not be obvious to us but the hybrid autofocus, phase + contrast detection, of the Sony A7 is faster than the contrast detect only focus. The A7r does not have hybrid autofocus, more from this previous post.

Sony A7r Eye AF in Action

Sony A7r Eye AF in Action


Here's a new feature included in the Sony A7 cameras. It's called Eye AF and it helps one capture that perfect focus for portraits with the camera locked onto the eye of the subject. We can't wait to test this out ourselves. Will it work with manual focus cameras?

Jpeg from Sony A7r, 100% Crop


Gustav had a chance to play with the Sony A7r, 35mm Sonnar, and the LA-EA4 lens adapter. He posted some samples which are straight out of the camera's jpeg engine with +1 contrast and +1 sharpness via the camera menu.

From Gustav:
i have dicided to keep the camera , and not give it back to sony i`m not theoretical technical , but this camera feels superb ,build is very good , i like the sound of the shutter (its not softly)the menu is also easy , and almost the same as alpha-menu

Samples by Gustav on Dyxum using the Sony A7r and the Zeiss 35mm Sonnar lens, LA-EA4 lens adapter, and the new Sony 70-200mm SSM G lens.

    • Kit Lens for the Sony A7 Bundle

  • Carl Zeiss 24-70mm f/4 FE Vario-Tessar ZA OSS SEL2470FZ $1198
    • EFOV of 36-105mm on NEX APS-C cameras. As a NEX-7 user this is the most appealing one.

The first four will be available this year, they are pictured below. The Sony G zoom will be the 1st of six for 2014 and at least five more lenses will be released in 2015. These lenses are compatible with all E-mount cameras include the NEX, VG Camcorders, and FS Camcorder which means Autofocus, auto-aperture, and image stabilization (lens dependent).
