Deal: Sony a6000 + 18-55mm + 55-210mm for $650

Save $500 from MSRP on the a6000 twin lens bundle from costco. The bundle is also $150 less than from Amazon, although the lens in the costco bundle is the 18-55mm instead of the 16-50mm in the Amazon bundle. Both lenses are about equal in performance.

Sony A7r and NEX APS-C Lenses

Carl Zeiss 32mm Touit Lens on Sony A7r
Here are a bevy of autofocus lenses made for the Sony NEX system mounted on the new Sony A7r. The red boxes show a 1:1 or square aspect ratio and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The lenses have rear baffles which were not removed. Most of the prime lenses can provide a square image with a little bit of vignetting. 16:9 images show heavy vignetting, maybe we can extract a 2.35:1 Cinemascope / Panavision image with the A7r's 36 megapixels to play with.

Here are some excellent photos produced by the NEX-5N and the 55-210mm OSS lens with a 1.7x Tele Conversion lens attached taken by zackiedawg. He uses the NEX-5N in A or S mode with Auto ISO. He makes sure that the shutter speed is fast enough to eliminate any camera movement. Autofocus is set to AF-S. He is producing excellent results with such a portable setup.

Here is zackiedawg's description of the VCL-DH1758 1.7x Tele Conversion Lens:
For those unfamiliar, these tele-extenders screw on to the filter threads on the end of the lens, and optically magnify the lens without light loss - so the effective range of the 55-210mm lens with the 1.7x extender onboard goes from 210mm max to 357mm max. This is a very useful range on the NEX body, given the 1.5x crop which allows for over 500mm effective range, and the fact that it loses no additional light means a sl…

Sony NEX-6 Parts Diagram
Here is the preliminary Sony NEX-6 user manual courtesy of the FCC filing. The NEX-6 has WiFi and had to go through FCC approval. The NEX-6 uses the NEX-5R's sensor, and the EVF of the NEX-7. It introduces hybrid autofocus (phase detect and contrast detect), the new mode dial, and multi-interface hot shoe to the NEX system. The camera also includes the ability to use PlayMemories apps which takes advantage of the WiFi interconnectability.
