Zeiss ZX1 Will Be Official Announced on October 29th at 6:00 AM


B&H Photo listed the Zeiss ZX1 early for preorder a few weeks ago and it is no longer available so hopefully some of you got your orders in. Now Nokishita is reporting that the official announcement will be October 29th around 6:00 AM EST.

It seems that the official announcement of the price etc. of ZEISS ZX1 will be on October 29 (around 19:00 Japan time?). As of October 29, the sales countries are the United States and Germany, and the price is 6000 dollars / 6000 euros.

The Zeiss ZX1 is certainly an interesting camera and I can’t wait to try one out, because I particularly enjoy the form factor of this camera.

Optical Limits: Samyang 14mm


Optical Limites reviewed the Samyang AF 18mm f/2.8, but it can be a bit difficult to judge this lens because it is alone at its price point.

The Samyang AF 18mm f/2.8 FE isn’t the silver bullet in its segment but given its size and also price tag this can’t be expected anyway. If you are aware of its limitations, it can still be an excellent tool. While it isn’t the last word on corner sharpness at f/2.8, the question is whether it’s required for on your usage pattern. It’s not ideal for astro photography but sharp corners aren’t really needed for shallow depth-of-field photography. Stopped down, the image quality is actually very decent across the image frame so applications such as landscape photography or city scenes are certainly possible with pretty impressive results. The amount of lateral CAs is about average but can easily be corrected in post. Image distortions are moderate for such a lens even in RAW format. An unsurprising weakness – given the small front element – is vignetting. It’s very heavy at f/2.8 and not brilliant at medium aperture settings either. Auto-correction reduces this a bit but some light falloff remains. We didn’t run our formalized bokeh tests but based on the field images, the quality is in line with other ultra-wide lenses – meaning that it can be a bit on the rough side.

We aren’t totally convinced by the build quality of this little Samyang lens. Formally there’s nothing wrong with it. There’s nothing shaky about it and it doesn’t change size during focusing. The focus ring is smooth, too. It just feels a little … cheap. The AF speed is Ok for such a lens but it takes a while before it finally settles.

It has to be pointed out that the Samyang AF 18mm f/2.8 FE is – by far – the most affordable option ultra-wide AF lens in Sony E mount. And it’s not only affordable but it also represents a great value proposition.

Metabones Firmware Update V0.64 Now Available


Metabones firmware update V0.60 for Metabones Smart Adapter IV/V and EF-E Speed Booster ULTRA 0.71x are now available.

ABOUT THIS DOWNLOAD

  • Name: Firmware update V0.64 for EF-E Smart AdapterTM MARK IV/V and EF-E Speed Booster® ULTRA
  • Release date: 01 Sept 2020
  • Benefits and improvements:
    • Fixed compatibility issue when Tamron 150-600/5-6.3 VC USD A011 is used in conjunction with a Kenko Pro300 teleconverter.
    • Sigma 50-100/1.8 DC HSM Art 016, Sigma 135/1.8 DG HSM Art 017 and Tamron 15-30/2.8 VC USD A012 now fixed to perform initial calibration only once.

    • For diagnostics the firmware version of the lens, if available, is now appended to the EXIF lens name.
