DPR started its review of the Zeiss ZX1 which you can read here. Below is a summary of their current findings:

Key specifications:

  • 37.4MP full-frame sensor
  • Fixed 35mm F2 lens with Zeiss T* coatings
  • 4.3″ ‘angled’ LCD with 2.76M dots
  • 0.74x magnification electronic viewfinder with 6.22M dots

  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
  • 512GB internal SSD, external storage using USB-C
  • Single USB-C port, supporting USB Power Delivery and HDMI alt mode

Key Points:

  • Minalist camera even though is has an Adobe Lightroom mobile editor inside
  • Sensor offers great resolution
  • RAW files arent very flexable
  • 35mm f/2 is impressively sharp and has pleasing bokeh
  • Could use the editor even though the reviewed didn’t have creative cloud but camera kept warning that a subscription was needed to edit RAW files
  • Missing features from Lightroom
  • Comfortable grip and well balanced
  • Responsive touch screen
  • 10-20 seconds to book camera, like smart phones, but instant power on from sleep
  • Camera consumes power while sleeping
  • Can share directly to Facebook and Instagram
  • Very basic AF system
  • It’s good to see a manufacture do something different

DPRTV: Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3 Di III RXD Review

Tamron has released a lot of great compact lightweight inexpensive lenses lately and it looks like the 70-300mm is another good option.

  • 70-300mm was always popular even though there aren’t many new ones
  • Very lightweight and compact
  • 545g or 1/4 a Nock
  • Even pairs well with the Sony a7C
  • No IBIS in the Tamron
  • 5.8 inches collapsed and 8.5 extended
  • Solid build
  • Should have a lock for lens creep
  • Weather sealed
  • Not a pro f/2.8 zoom
  • AF is fine but not super fast since it is a stepping motor
  • A little magenta cast and not much chromatic aberration in general
  • Sony 70-300mm G is twice the price of the Tamron
  • 70mm is sharper than the sony wide open in the center and corners
  • 300mm is shaper than the sony wide open in the center, but the Sony does better in the corners
  • Tamron has major distortion at 300mm that might be a problem even with correction
  • Cats eye bokeh around the corners
  • The best thing about this lens is its low cost
  • Not a fan of the bokeh
  • Great lightweight travel telephoto
