First test with the unique Panasonic CM1 smartphone!

Matt Granger just posted this video testing the incredible sexy and unique Panasonic CM1 smartphone. Some low resolution image samples have been posted also on his website. There is also an interesting test in German posted by Chip.de on Youtube. This is just an example of how much better the CM1 is than one of the best Smartphone-cameras out there. The Sony Z1:

The Panasonic CM1 is listed at Panasonic Germany, Panasonic Austria, Panasonic France. For now it will be available in those countries only by end of this year for 899 Euro. I hope Panasonic will sell this worldwide in 2015. And now the big question:

Would you buy the Panasonic CM1?

Olympus 40-150mm hands-on review by Pekka Potka.


Note:
Preorder the 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO lens at Amazon, Adorama, Bhphoto, GetOlympus and at Wex UK.

Pekka Potka is the first Olympus 40-150mm tester sharing his thoughts about the new lens

This is what he writes about the Optical Quality:

Optically, I really would say this lens is outstanding. There should be nothing to be worried about when production models start shipping. I did not run into any negative issues with the lens alone. With teleconverter attached I noticed that the combination is more sensitive to extremely bright object inside image than with the lens alone at same focal length when shooting wide open.

This is what he writes about the Usability:

For me this lens feels as very nice from every point of view. It is not big nor heavy but has speed and quality. I have used it hand held (no monopod) for two 9 hour days in airshow and carried it around in the wild without feeling any fatique at all. The lens and E-M1 body with hood collapsed fit easily into a compact backpack.

First real world images of the new Nokton 10,5mm f/0.95 lens!


Image courtesy: ePhotozine

ePhotozine is the first website who shared real world images of the new Voigtlander Nokton 10,5mm f/0.95 lens. They write:

We were able to take a number of sample photos with the lens, and were impressed by the straight edges, as well as the sharpness of the lens.

Can’t wait to buy this lens! Preorders should be up soon at BHphoto.
