Thoughts of the future 

So here’s the follow up to the last two paragraphs of the post below about the future of the site.  First: I have a lot of knowledge I want to share; of course I’ll be reviewing all the new Sony lenses, but more importantly, I’ll be adding more useful stuff such as interior lighting…

Soon to be back in action!

Hello everyone!  It’s been quite some time since I last posted anything; and a long time since I posted anything meaningful.  I did not fall off a cliff, or decide to go find myself while traveling the world, I somewhat enjoy being lost all the time, and don’t have enough money to travel…

Sony Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm F/4 OSS ZA review!

This lens took over two months to review, mostly because I’m super busy with business these past months, (well, all year actually), but also because I had to review two lenses as I thought the first one wasn’t quite up to Sony QC standards, unfortunately, it looks like…

Not the IQ I had in mind for a Zeiss.

I took the Zeiss 16-70mm zoom out for some serious test shots, and in the process discovered the images are far less than what I had in mind for a lens costing $1000.  Here’s the thing; the centers are very sharp and impressive at F/5.6 at all focal lengths,…

New arrival; Sony Zeiss 16-70mm F/4 OSS.

I have the new Zeiss 16-70mm zoom now, and official testing will begin this weekend.  It’s pretty small and light weight, although it looks big on the NEX-C3 below.  It would compliment the 10-18mm, and may be the only two lenses you’d ever need for the NEX APS-C system: well, this
