Updated info.

The Rokinon 16mm F/2 for Sony alpha review will be delayed for a while.  My copy has an issue with the focusing mechanism (shifting when ring reversed) which causes image quality problems sometimes.  I wasted an entire day screwing with it.  I’ve ordered another, and hopefully that one will be right.  This lens has the potential to be really good from what I’ve observed so far, so let’s cross our fingers on the next one!!

Flash photographers will love the Fuji X100s because of the flash sync.  This guy hypes it big-time.  It’s still in stock as of this post.  I wanted to buy it for doing supplementally lighted twilight shots while it’s still sunny out, but I’ve got to get the new NEX-7 replacement, NEX full frame model and a regular FF model whenever they come out, so that’s looking like something north of five grand for just the cheap versions.  All will be used for reviews, but I may also use the APS-C NEX for Real Estate shoots with the 10-18mm lens.
I should get the new Sony Zeiss 16-70mm F/4 OSS today, so maybe I can get that wrapped up and posted before I get another replacement Rokinon!
