Konica Hexanon 57 f/1.2

Few weeks ago I wrote a list of very fast 50mm lenses. But if you are looking for fast lenses you should also take a look on the very good Konica Hexanon 57 f/1.2 lens!

If you want to see some image samples click here:

dpreview forum (on the GH1)
e-p1.net (on the E-P2)
flickr.com (on the GF1)

UPDATE: Lumix L1 + Konica samples http://iztokx.blogspot.com/

The lens itself sells for $550 on Ebay (used). And you need an Adapter!

If you have some image samples send me your links at 43rumors@gmail.com
And also send me your test with other fast lenses!
Thanks

Curious: Sanyo presents the…GH2!

As you know Panasonic owns Sanyo since 2009. So it is a little bit strange that Sanyo unveiled their latest GH2 full-HD cam. Why has Sanyo/Panasonic choosen that name? Does it mean that the next Panasonic GH1 successor will have a different name?
There must be some reason behind that choice…

Spectacular macros with the Panasonic G1 and 75mm f1.9 Kinotel Anastigmat for macro (C Mount)

I confess, I normally don’t like macro photography. Most of the pictures I see on the web are just boring.
But what I saw today on dpreview forum is amazing! You can find even more spectacular pictures from the same author on flickriver.com. And you know what? They were taken with the “old” Panasonic G1 and the unknown 75mm Kinotel lens. What matters is not the camera…it is you!

Awesome pictures Jerry!

Sending your request to Panasonic and Olympus

Few days ago I asked you to give me your questions to Olympus and Panasonic. I collected them all and today I wills end the emails to Olympus and Panasonic.
I have no idea if they will really answer you. Many of the questions you made were really detailled and probably they can’t give you a specific answer to future products. I will let you know when they will write me back. I am really “curious” to know what they say.

Reminder…this are your questions:
for Olympus
for Panasonic
