The need for speed: Canon 50mm f/0.95 (Leica M-mount) and the Canon 50mm f/1.2 (Canon FD mount)

Canon 50mm f/0.95 M-mount
If you care about your money you will not spend more than $2.000 for the Canon 50mm f/0.95 M-mount lens manual focusing lens! Nevertheless there is a flickr group (with 576 members!) that has a nice picture collection. The name of the group is “Canon 50mm f/0.95 “Dream Lens”. You can find some image taken with MicroFourThirds cameras (like here for example with the E-PL1).
Now it’s time for a little bit of camera porn: See the lens attached on the Panasonic GH1 (Fredmiranda) and on the Olympus E-P1 (DChome).
You can get the lens on eBay (click here to check out current auctions)

Canon 50mm f/1.2 FD-mount
Canon FD mount lenses are generally high-quality and also cheap lenses. So don’t mind to use the Canon 50mm f/1.2 FD-mount on your MicroFourThirds camera! Some image samples are available here on dpreview forum or flickr.
And now again some cameraporn: The lens on the GF1 (Flickr), on the E-P1 (Rangefinderforum)
You can get the lens on eBay (click here to check out current auctions)

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 vs. DMC-LX3 hands-on (the new Panasonic sensor works better!)

Leonard Goh from CNET Asia compared the new Panasonic LX5 with the “older” LX3. The comparison is interesting because the new Panasonic sensor improvements may will be also visible with the new MicroFourThirds sensor. Leonard said that dynamic range and resolution have been improved. Not bad at all!

The need for speed: The extremely rare Zeika Nominar C-mount M25 f/0.95 !

Zeika is a Japanese Optical brand name combined with “Zeiss”s “Z” and “Leica”s “eica” part (ingenious). It’s a product made in the 1960′s providing the same lens to the US brand, Carl Meyer and Nighthawk.
