Rare finding: Rayxar 50mm f/0,75 on the Olympus E-PL5


It’s the first time in nine years I see this. Image samples of the rare Rayxar 50mm f/0.75 super fast lens shot on the Olympus E-PL5 have been posted by Anadrasi on his eBay auction page (Click here to see the images).

That lens is massive and absolutely sexy on the E-PL5.  But I am not sure you can get anything in focus at full aperture!

E-M1 firmware update 4.0 review by Mirrorlessons.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 – Firmware 4 (Focus Stacking, Focus Bracketing and more)

Mirrorlessons published a review of the new E-M1 firmware update 4.0. They write:

By updating the OM-D E-M1 with all the latest specifications, not only are they prolonging the life of their flagship camera but they are also instilling brand loyalty by taking care of their existing user base.
What’s more, with the introduction of Focus Bracketing/Focus Stacking, the camera has also become one of the most interesting products for macro photographers. It can easily become one of those features that you can’t live without if you like this genre of photography.
With all the amazing technology we’ve been seeing from Olympus over the past few years, I am very eager to see just what the second generation E-M1 will bring to the world of photography.

MS Optical Sonnetar tested on the Panasonic GH4

Annie tested the rare MS Optical Sonnetar lens on the GH4:

“The lens at wide open is too soft for our taste, and has a lot of purple fringing. A bit hard to use at wide open, especially on the 4K. The footage was taken in 4K, and Youtube downsized to 1080!”

You can fin (if you are lucky) the lens for sale on eBay (Click here).
