SONY UNVEILS UNIQUE “ALL-IN-ONE” COMPACT INTERCHANGEABLE LENS CAMERA WITH 24.3 MEGAPIXEL RESOLUTION

New NEX-7 Combines superb imaging, high performance and full palette of creative options

SAN DIEGO -- Sony is taking professional quality imaging and artistic shooting options to new levels with the introduction of the new α NEX-7 camera. Styled in magnesium alloy for strength and designed with a unique blend of classic and modern inspiration, the new compact interchangeable lens model weighs only 10.3 ounces (291g).

In speed priority continuous mode, the NEX-7 camera captures fast-moving action at up to 10fps (AF/AE is fixed) – the world’s fastest burst shooting speed of any mirrorless interchangeable lens camera (as of Aug 2011).

TAMRON WINS EISA AWARD FOR 6TH CONSECUTIVEYEAR

Tamron 60th Anniversary Model— the Easy to use, best-in-class resolution 18-270mm Di II VC PZD (Model B008) — wins EISA European Zoom Lens of the Year 2011 - 2012

August 15, 2011, Commack, NY — Tamron Co., Ltd., celebrating its 60th anniversary, announced that the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) has awarded its European Zoom Lens of the Year 2011-2012 to the Tamron 60th Anniversary Model 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (Model B008). This lens, which is the world’s most compact and lightest ultra-high-power 15x zoom lens, represents the sixth consecutive year that EISA has recognized Tamron, a leading manufacturer of optical equipment

Excerpt from the Award Citation of the EISA Jury
“This compact zoom lens is an excellent tool for travel photographers, who can now carry a single all-in-one zoom lens instead of the multiple lenses that would normally be needed to cover this range of focal lengths. Designed for the popular APS-C sensor format, it delivers a focal range that is suitable for anything from landscapes to wildlife photography. The lens is small and light, and the main zoom ring is comfortable and easy to operate. The maximum aperture at the wide-angle end is well suited for working in low-light conditions or when a shallow depth of field is required, and Tamron's new piezoelectric motor achieves near-silent autofocus.”
