To use the Nikon Z7 camera with my Sony system, I needed to make a mount adaptor to attach Sony E Mount (NEX) optics on Nikon Z as none are currently available on the market. “If it is not there, why not to make one myself” is my motto. Since I’ve already made so many lenses to use on Sony A7R, to remake them for Nikon Z mount is too much work.
It looks like Yongnuo aren’t the only cheap Chinese manufacturer looking to expand into lenses. Although, while Yongnuo does typically make the products onto which their names is emblazoned, Neewer generally doesn’t. They simply buy and brand. Which makes this Neewer 35mm f/1.2 APS-C lens for Fuji X and Sony E mount (coming soon) particularly interesting.
A lot of photographers felt excited when the Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 FE was first announced in February. And although Tamron recently said that they might not be able to deliver on time, early reviews of the lens still appear to be positive. The latest is of David Oastler who wanted to see if Sony’s face and eye-detection would work well with the new lens. So, is it any good?
Almost two weeks ago, Meike released the 85mm. autofocus medium telephoto lens compatible for Canon EF, Nikon F, and Sony E-mount. Today, they’ve just announced yet another lens specifically for Sony E-mount. Filling the gaps in their line of E-mount compatible lenses, the new 50mm. f/1.7 full-frame manual focus lens is now available for Sony photographers.
