First full Panasonic 30mm macro lens review by ePhotozine.

Share

30mm

ePhotozine (Click here) posted the first full review of the new Panasonic 30mm macro lens. And it earned the highest “editor’s choice” award:

Who could ask for more than a reasonably priced lens that delivers excellent sharpness across the frame from maximum aperture, useful optical stabilisation and life size magnification at its closest focusing distance? Of course the compact size and light weight also help to make this lens one that will win over many admirers.

Cool test: Olympus AIR with the 300mm Four Thirds lens!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One of the advantages of the new Olympus AIR MFT “lens-camera” is that it allows a new kind of shooting with huge tele lenses! The picture on top shows how you can hold the 300mm f/2.8 Four Thirds lens without having to use the tripod. Something that would be much harder to do if you would have a “normal” DSLR or Mirrorless camera on it.

DC.watch posted a full set of images to show how it works (Click on it to enlarge):

Image samples shot with tha combo can be seen at DC.watch.

ePhotozine reviews the new 42.5mm f/1.7 ASPH lens and says it “gives outstanding sharpness”.

42,5mmGX7

ePhotozine reviewed the brand new and yet not shipping new Panasonic 42,5mm f/1.7 lens:

Currently, this lens is available for around £350. The closest equivalent available is the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 lens, which costs almost half as much at around £180. As this lens lacks optical stabilisation, it will be a harder deciding between the two lenses if you’ve a Panasonic, or other MFT camera that lacks in-body stabilisation.
As far as the performance of this lens is concerned, there is little to find fault with. Sharpness is outstanding from maximum aperture, falloff, distortion and fringing are all well controlled too.

Victor:I borrowed the new Panasonic 42.5 F1.7 lens on the panasonic boot on professional imaging in holland. And shot this quick review of it. It is the first review online of this lens! My YT channel is just hobby so it is quite nice to be the first one with test footage of this lens! http://youtu.be/vCTnrMNFtS8

Panasonic GF7 review at CameraLabs.

Bildschirmfoto 2015-03-25 um 11.23.40

There is a new Panasonic GF7 review at CameraLabs. This is a camera that didn’t get a lot of attention from the press and has no real big new WOW factor to make the announcement go viral. But for the money it can do a lot of things and Gordon from CameraLabs really likes the camera:

“The Lumix GF7 is a great little camera and I really enjoyed using it. If you take lot of selfies it is, without doubt, the best option, combining ease of use and fun, innovative modes while at the same time offering most of the things you’d expect from an advanced mirrorless compact system camera. The lack of a viewfinder, or the means to fit one, and the absence of a hot shoe are things that the target audience can probably live without. The poor battery life is disappointing, but not enough to deprive the GF7 of a well-deserved Recommended award.”
