Sony FE 16-35mm F2.8 Lens Coming

The rumor is coming from, According a Sony store somewhere in Europe Sony will soon announce FE 16-35mm F2.8 Lens.

I went into (Store name hidden) yesterday to test out a few FE lenses yesterday and to pick me up a 16-35 f/4. He asked me if I didn’t mind waiting a couple of months. I said explain.
That’s when he turned his till terminal screen to face me and asked if I wanted the lens pion their incoming inventory list… It was the Sony FE 16-35mm F/2.8. Naturally in response i said someone has mistyped put FE instead of ‘A’ mount. He went off again, came back with management back-up and stated its accurate even though they haven’t physically seen one yet.
He stated that because of their buying status with manufactures they get wind of what’s coming and place their orders accordingly… This was one of them and is due before Christmas…

Nikon D5 Coming in Jan and D400 Coming in first half of 2016

Nikon-D5-imageNikon D5 Coming in January 2016 and the Nikon D400 coming in first half of 2016 According to Veteran photographer Thom Hogan. A glimpse of info from his blog-post

I expect from Nikon in early 2016. I’d be hesitant to buy the other two DX lenses at this point. Nikon has promised more DX lenses in the future, and I’m once again getting word from Japan that the on-again, off-again D400 is on for the first half of 2016. If so, it would make sense to couple that with new DX lens offerings above and beyond the 16-80mm f/2.8-4. Likewise, the 70-200mm f/2.8 is a lens Nikon revisits often—especially near pro model introductions—and the D5 is due in January.

So let’s wait and watch. BTW see the Nikon D5 Rumored specification here and Nikon D400 Rumored specification here.

Sensors:- Both the cameras Sony A68 and Canon 760D have same resolutions of 24MP .

Before we begin to compare the core specification only we must know that the type of technologies both camera are using, the Canon is a pure DSLR camera and on the other hand the Sony A68 SLT technologies based camera.

In SLT system the mirror doesn’t flip up anytime weather you are shooting via viewfinder of display uni.So, the bit disadvantage of the SLT system due to the fixed translucent mirror is the translucent mirror doesn’t flip-up and LESS light pass thorough the sensor, hence approx 10 to 20% of the light falling on the sensor is consumed by the SLT mirror and as a result the low-light performance is not up to the mark and on the other side the Canon allows full light to fall in the sensor by flipping-up the mirror hence the Sensor performance is optimal.

On the other hand the Canon 760D 19 point AF system is active when you are using viewfinder and when you switch to Live view the Hybrid AF system gets active. Hence the AF system of the Canon 750D is bit more complex but best for DSLR users.

ISO: Despite of having the same ISO range the Canon will perform better in low-light condition compared to Sony A68 SLT camera.

Continuous Shooting Speed:- Sony A68 has continuous shooting speed of 8fps while Canon 760D has 5fps. So, Sony A68 will perform well with better result during capturing fast action objects such as running train or flying birds or any action objects.

Videos:- Sony A68 captures Full HD video with high bit-rate 50Mbps XAVC S format at 60 fps while Canon 760D also capture Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 30 fps.

Hence, the frame per second rate of Sony A68 is definitely faster than Canon 760D, which makes the Sony A68 to capture videos faster compare to Canon 760D.

Verdict – We recommend you to go with Canon 760D camera if you are a still shooter since it based on better technology and also supports many EF and EF-S Lenses on the other hand the Sony A68 is recommend for sports and still shooters.
