Put a 10.900$ lens on the Panasonic G2!

You are not going to see such a combination very often. “Mister Le” has taken some image samples with the Panasonic G2 (which costs $799.00) and the über-expensive $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon EF 800mm f/5.6 L IS USM Lens (£11,099.00 on Amazon UK) if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon EF 800mm 1:5,6L IS USM Lens (12.568,98 on Amazon Deutschland!) if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon EF 800mm 1:5,6L IS USM Lens (12.568,98 on Amazon Deutschland!) if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon EF 800mm f/5.6 (EUR 12.434,99 on Amazon France!) if ($loc == 'US')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM Super Telephoto Lens (over 10.00o$…Click here to see it for yourself !!) if ($sel != '1')
{?>Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM Super Telephoto Lens (over 10.00o$…Click here to see it for yourself !!)

The funny thing is that he used a 2x teleconverter on it…that makes 800mm x2 (converter) x2 (FourThirds) = 3.200mm!!!

Panasonic 7-14mm lens tested at Photozone


One day after posting the Olympus M.Zuiko 9-18mm review Photozone also published the Panasonic 7-14mm test! The Panasonic lens performs a little better but you also have to keep in mind that it cost 30-40% more than the Olympus lens!
Check out the price of the Panasonic lens on Amazon / Adorama / BH
and the price of the Olympus lens on Amazon / Adorama / BH

First image samples taken with the Loreo 3D lens

The LOREO 3D Lens for MicroFourThirds

Don B. sent us following email:
I recently bought one of the m43 Loreo3D lenses that I read about on 43rumors. After looking on the web I noticed that a lot of the image examples that people put up aren’t as 3D as they should be (if at all) because the camera has to be absolutely level (left to right not up and down) or they won’t “fit” together right. The level indicator on the Pens makes this perfect every time. I also created a quick bash script to convert the images from the standard format, which needs special lenses to view, into the cross eyed format which for me has a much more dramatic 3D effect and doesn’t require anything but practice.

I attached the (very basic) script which is for a Linux system with imagemagick installed (Click here to download it). Place it in the same directory as the loreo format images and when run from a terminal will convert all JPG files to cross eyed format (assuming a full resolution 4/3 Pen image size). I also attached 2 sample cross eyed 3D photos shot with my ep2. They are a little harder than most cross eyed images to see for me but once you can align them correctly when crossing your eyes the 3D depth is awesome. It’s easiest to see them if viewed full screen on your monitor moving your head closer and farther to find the sweet spot.

I can’t wait to shoot some video and convert it to the cross eyed format.
Click on those pictures to enlarge:

You can order the lens here: http://www.loreo.com/pages/shop/loreo_products_online.html

Thanks D.B.!
