In this article/ video I will unbox the new Sony gear that just arrived at the Lab including the: Sony a6500, FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens, and FE 2X Teleconverter… Links below and thanks again for the support and great comments! Testing requests welcomed….
I will be testing this gear in a variety of ways including the lab and Real World Photography and Video. Anything else??

I have done a little testing in the Lab so far and the quality of the optics looks incredible! Colors, Sharpness, Contrast, and Bokeh all look awesome to me based on my initial testing. I will be taking the lens outside today for some real world testing, so stay tuned for some quality sample photos and video to come soon…

Unboxing – Sony a6500, 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS Lens, and 2X Teleconverter

A few Test Shots:

I did not get anything special yet, but wanted to share a few test type snap shots I took around the house and in the lab yesterday for those drooling in anticipation πŸ˜‰
This first frame was taken hand held RAW Quality @ f/2.8, 1/20sec, 200mm, ISO 400. I was very impressed with the camera/ lens stabilization and sharpness captured with this snapshot!
