Exclusive Interview: Kenta Honjo On The a6300 Mirrorless Camera and G Master Lenses



In the following video, Doug Guerra, of B&H, sits down with Kenta Honjo, the Sony Alpha Product Manager, to discuss the major advancements of the speedy and 4K-capable a6300 Mirrorless Camera, as well as the trio of lenses that introduce the fledgling G Master full-frame E-mount line: the FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM, FE 85mm f/1.4 GM, and FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS.

They discuss the major enhancements that have been made to the camera’s Fast Hybrid AF system, now equipped with 425 phase-detect points, and the image-quality boost provided by the new 24.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor with thinner copper wiring for better low-light performance and faster readout. They also talk about the new body design with a 3.5mm microphone input and a high-resolution EVF with near real-time response.

Each lens is reviewed in depth, while they focus on the G Master’s overall goal of exceptional resolution, outstanding bokeh quality, and flexibility for stills and video. They also discuss the two new full-frame teleconverters, a 1.4x and 2.0x, that are now available for the E-mount system.
