Andrew:Possibly your readers would be interested in some photographs from a deserted and decaying hospital in Vicksburg, Mississippi, USA. The paranormal researchers often visit this hospital, but I never saw any ghosts. I took most of the photographs with a tripod-mounted Panasonic G3 camera and the Olympus 9-18mm lens (a few with a Fuji and one with a Leica on film).

Jw:Tamron AT 3,5-5,8/14-150 Di III tested in german magazine “FOTOTEST” sept 2014,

Jay:Here are pics from my trip taken last Fall to Oaxaca, Mexico during Day of the Dead. Photos taken using the Olympus EM5 and several prime lenses (Olympus Zuiko 12, 17, 45 and 75).

Sebastian:For the video guys out there, I have created a LUT that helps balance out the colours on Panasonic cameras (particularly the new ones like the GX7 and GH4). I would appreciate if you could promote the link as I am interested to see what results people get out of it

One month after Photokina Voigtlander still didn’t release any official rpice and shipment info of the amazing new 10,5mm f/0.95 Nokton lens (specs listed here at BHphoto).


I hope Voigtlander/Cosina is reading this post and will soon give us an update :)

Reminder: SystemKameraForum got an “Unofficial info” saying the new Nokton 10,5mm f/0.95 lens will cost around 1300 Euro. Few image samples at Bestmirrorlesscamerareviews and Hands-on pics at ePhotozine.

These are the other three Nokton f/0.95 lenses:
Nokton 25mm f/0.95 (here one Bay).
Nokton 17.5mm f/0.95 (here one Bay).
Nokton 42.5mm f/0.95 (here one Bay).
