Introduction – Sony news

Sony company was founded in 1946. Sony is a giant company that makes Bravia TV-s, mobile phones, electronic games, playstations, laptops, chemicals and other products. I remember in the 80’s the most cool thing was a Sony TV. It was like something as I consider a part of the top of the life experience. Later I bought one, not LCD, 50 hertz. The quality was very good, nothing needed to adjust just see it. Still working today, in excellent condition.

Sony cameras 2014 comparison table

This article mostly concentrates on the newest Sony cameras, I also add some other Sony product news as well at the bottom of the page. Sony bought Konica Minolta in 2006. Older Minolta lenses are also can be used on the Sony camera system, such as the interesting 50mm f/1.7 or the fantastic Minolta 200mm f/2.8. Sony also collaborated with Carl Zeiss with some of it’s lenses. Sony produces cameras in a very fast speed compare to other suppliers. Sony focus on innovation very much, and wants to give new solutions. Sony supply sensors for Pentax cameras as well, earlier for Nikon as well. Some Phase one camera also have Sony sensor. According to me the most interested products are the former Nex line and the Full format mirrorless cameras. The excellent Full format sensor gives very good image quality. In picture processing engine department I think Canon and Nikon has a little advantage over Sony.

The new Tamron is simply excellent and much more affordable than the other options, see in more detail in the review. Now I checked the Canon version but sooner or later comes to Sony as well. The Canon version I checked is simply excellent, perhaps better than the Canon 100-400 L which is not a bad lens either. On top of that is much cheaper, unfortunately not so much in Europe.
