Sony today announced the latest addition to its acclaimed Alpha 7R series full-frame mirrorless camera line-up: the extremely versatile, powerful Alpha 7R IV (model ILCE-7RM4).
Sony’s highest resolution full-frame camera ever, the new Alpha 7R IV delivers stunning image quality with high resolution and wide dynamic range while maintaining outstanding focusing performance, high-speed continuous shooting and much, much more.
Sony has announced the latest addition to its E-mount full-frame lens line-up with the introduction of the FE 35mm F1.8 wide-angle prime lens, model SEL35F18F.
The compact dimensions and lightweight of this full-frame, large-aperture lens provide mobility and convenience for shooting a wide range of subjects, such as everyday snapshots, food photography, landscapes, night scenes and more. The new lens provides outstanding corner-to-corner image quality, while its quiet autofocus and tenacious tracking performance make it a great choice for both stills and movie shooting. Additionally, its compact form makes it an appealing choice for both APS-C body users, offering a 52.5mm equivalent focal length on APS-C cameras.
Tamron announces the launch of the 17-28mm F2.8 Di III RXD (Model A046), a large aperture, ultra-wide-angle lens for Sony E-mount full-frame mirrorless cameras. The Model A046 features a filter diameter of 67mm (astonishingly small for a full-frame, large aperture, ultra-wide-angle zoom lens) as well as an unprecedented light weight of 14.8 oz. and diminutive length of 3.9 in. The compact size provides excellent balance on the small profile mirrorless cameras and is easy to carry.
