CameraLabs: Sony E 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 Review

Cameralabs reviewed the Sony E 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 and seemed fairly impressed with Sony’s new APS-C lens. Maybe Sony will come through with their promises to not abandon APS-C after all. The new 18-135mm is pretty good for a kit lens, but I hope Sony develops a lens like excellent Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS for a future E-mount camera. The Sony 18-135mm almost pin sharp to the corners, which isn’t bad for the price, but Sony can still do better. You can read the Full Camera Labs Review here.

Sony a7RIII Weather Sealing vs Nikon D850

Image Resource devised a torture test for the Sony a7RIII, Nikon D850, Canon 5D Mark IV and Olympus OM-D EM1 that simulates a moderate downpour and while all the cameras survived the a7RIII didn’t perform optimally. The a7RIII had water in the battery compartment after the rain test and it started randomly firing in the off position after the mist test, but the camera returned to normal after being aired out you can read more about it in Image Resources writeup.

This is very bad news for photographers that like to shoot in the rain and I really would have like to have seen a GFX in the mix for this test, because as well as the competitors performed the Fujifilm GFX is probably right up there with the Olympus OMD. Well built mirrorless cameras should have an advantage at this kind of test and it also would have been nice to have a Sony a9 involved in this testing for good measure. Sony’s weather sealing has improved marginally over the years, but they still have a long way to go.

Sony a7RIII Sigma MC-11 + Sigma ART Performance and Video Performance Roundup

If you took advantage of the Sigma ART sale and own a Sony a7RIII with Sigma MC-11 you are probably pretty happy with your purchases. It looks like the combination works very well together. I don’t personally adapt glass beside Leica M-mount, but I know a lot of photographers do that shoot two systems or have preferences. Sigma ART lenses are very well known and respected so I am sure there are many that would love to use them on Sony cameras and maybe we will be able to use them natively someday, but until then we will have to settle for the Sigma MC-11 adapter.

The Adapter even works with video, but you might not like the video color performance as much as the Sony a7RII if that was your previous Sony camera. The first color comparison video has emerged and the default profiles look a little inferior. In fact, it might take quite a bit of work to make the Sony a7RIII look as good as the Sony a7RII. Beyond color, the Sony a7RIII does seem to perform significantly better than the Sony a7RII while recording video, but color correcting video can be a chore depending on how particular you are and how familiar you are with the process.
