Very first preview of the Olympus AIR MFT camera!

Share

AIR_olympus

The Japanese site DC.watch (google translation here) is the worldwide first site posting a preview of the Olympus AIR MFT camera. As you know the AIR will go for sale in Japan only. ON their site you can find a full ISO test and many image samples. The AIR uses the same 16MP sensor as the other OMD cameras. And here are some of the reviewers impressions:

1) The AIR has no on sensor stabilization because Olympus wanted to keep it as compact as possible
2) Start up time is a bit slow
3) Autofocus is fast
4) Connection with the APP is fast and reliable. And the cool thing is that everything is OPEN source which means everyone can develop an APP for the AIR (unlike Sony QX which is closed source).

It will be interesting to see if that new AIR MFT camera will actually make some significant sales in Japan…

First few image samples taken with the Voigtländer Nokton 10,5 mm f/0,95 lens!

DSLRmagazine posted a couple of image samples taken with the Voigtländer Nokton 10,5 mm f/0,95 lens. All four images they posted have been taken at full f/0.95 aperture. The bokeh is very creamy and the close focusing ability creates a very unique kind of picture. LIke that one:

DSLRmagazine writes that the price of the lens will be announced soon. Full lens specs can be read at BHphoto (Click here).

Yet more reviewers fall in love with the Olympus 40-150mm PRO lens :)

ePhotozine tested the 40-150mm PRO lens and writes:

The combination of great build quality and performance alone are enough to recommend this lens. The fact that it offers a unique zoom range, whilst maintaining a fast f/2.8 throughout is even better. It’s capable of delivering excellent image quality too, and is even fairly reasonably priced. For the most part, it handles well too, thanks to its robust build and relative light weight and compact size, although it’s worth noting that it still may be a little large for use with the smallest Micro Four Thirds bodies. On the whole, this lens is an excellent addition to the Micro four Thirds line up, that will win over many fans.

Also Darren Miles reviewed the lens:
