Here is a test of the Leica 25mm lens, against the similar Nikon 18.5mm lens for the Nikon 1 system. It shows that the Leica lens is a lot better (M43photo).

E-M10 review at Toolsandtoys.

Jean:A “next door” story on an unconventional specie. As a professional photographer, I recently worked on an amazing universe, the Sphynx. These hairless cats are an official specie which appeared in the 60’s. Just very few official breeders around the world. That work, made for magazines, was entirely shot with two GH3, a Pana 20mm and Olympus 12mm & 45mm. Link is:

Robert:I’m not sure if this is something you’d show but I shot this video on a local artist with a bmpcc I’m sensor size agnostic but love using m43 for the tiny lenses.

Lee:Hi, the C-Mount on M4/3 Facebook group has produced some exclusive branded T-Shirts for BMPCC owner who just love their C-Mount lenses. Lee Mullen, C-Mount on M4/3 Facebook admin said “We came up with this idea based upon the most frequent question when somebody wants to try a C-Mount lens on their camera; “Does it cover the BMPCC?”, so myself and fellow member Ron Stratton came up with the idea and design to produce a stunning and humorous slogan for the t shirt’s logo – ‘Does it Cover?’ with an image of the Pocket Camera sat in the middle of a vignette complete with dramatic clouds. T shirts and soon coming other merchandise can be purchased directly from our CafePress store: We are also looking at ‘C-Mount on M4/3′ lens bands to help people to focus with any awkward TV lens”.
