Panasonic GH1+ Voigtlander video (+ final soundimages review)


Mike Kobal posted that nice Panasonic GH1 + Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 test. One more video from Mike is available here: http://www.mikekobal.com/blog/?p=926

And finally Soundimagesplus posted the full Nokton review (part1part2part3). Those are some of the most interetsing statements:
– “there is some vignetting at f/0.95
– “CA and fringing is present, but its much better than on many lenses I have.
– “Wide open its very good, and moving through f/1.4 and f/2 the sharpness improves. I really wouldn’t have any problem using it at any aperture.
– “I’m very happy with the colour rendition of the lens also and the contrast, all of which combine to produce nice punchy pictures
– “Is it sharper than the 20mm f/1.7 pancake? My gut reaction says it is

I would say buy that lens if you can live with manual focus! There are three Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 lens for sale on eBay (worldwide shipment)

The Panasonic 14mm review by Craig Mod!


Stop reading those boring studio tests and reviews! Forget charts and comparisons! Read a real “human” world review of the new Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 lens. The reviewer…ops NO!…The photographer is Craig Mod: “This is a discussion of seeing (and by extension, photography) under the pretense of a lens review. If you want to read about what it feels like to use this lens, this is your place.

I do totally agree with his prime lens philosophie: “By using a prime, you train both your brain and your eyes to think in their space. A zoom lens allows you to shift the lens-space to your brain-space. But with primes you’re stuck in their world. You become intimate with life within their frame until composition becomes second nature.

And what does he say about the lens? “It’s a lovely, sharp, whisper quiet, quick to focus, unbelievably tiny, beautiful little prime lens. I highly recommend it.”

I soo enjoyed it to read that article. Thanks Craig for your awesome work. We want to see more of it ;)

You want to order the lens? Here you have a few direct links:
Amazon US, Adorama, BHphoto, Amazon Deutschland, Amazon UK

Canon 60D vs Panasonic GH2 noise reduction comparison (+ Panasonic Fisheye review)

Dpreview just posted the new Canon 60D review. The good news is that they compared the noise perofrmance with “our” new Panasonic GH2: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos60d/page11.asp. It’s doing pretty well! Maybe we should not pay to much attention at what DxOmark says :)

For out japanese readers: Ascii.jp posted a GH2 review!

Panasonic GH2 price and availability check:
Amazon US, Adorama, BHphoto, Amazon UK, Amazon France, Amazon Japan and eBay.

New Voigtländer 25mm f/0.95 review and image samples.

Mike Kobal posted a new set of image samples taken at f/0.95 aperture only! (http://www.mikekobal.com/blog/?p=869). Those are very nice and sharp images! It has much better results than my Noktor 50mm f/0.95 :)

Soundimageplus posted the first part of his Voigtländer 25mm f/0.95 review and those are some of their key findings:
– I was concerned that I may have problems focusing at f/0.95 but these fears proved unfounded.
– This lens focuses to just over 6″ or 17 CM. This is INCREDIBLY useful.
– The Bokeh is “Incredible“.
– I’ve detected very little CA and fringing

I just checked eBay again and there are Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 three shops from Hong Kong and Germany selling the lens (Click here)[/shoplink]. Worldwide shipment!
