Image courtesy: ePhotozine

ePhotozine is the first website who shared real world images of the new Voigtlander Nokton 10,5mm f/0.95 lens. They write:

We were able to take a number of sample photos with the lens, and were impressed by the straight edges, as well as the sharpness of the lens.

Can’t wait to buy this lens! Preorders should be up soon at BHphoto.

First video with the new SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 lens.

SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 on GH4 4K World premiere, the very 1st shots from Seb Farges on Vimeo.

Seb farges posted this first video made with the brand new SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 Micro Four Thirds lens and he writes:

My very first impressions : solid, heavy (420g), compact, sharp at full aperture T2.1, only 2cm minimum focus distance.
The ND filter : good first impressions, and two great options on it : lever and hard stop ! Perfect for video !

The press release of the new lens can be read here at 43rumors.

CameraLabs tests the FZ1000 and says it’s the “classiest bridge camera to date”.

In US it’s still hard to get the FZ1000 but some of them are now in Stock at Samys eBay (Click here). And the reason why it’s hard to get is because it’s a damn good camera! CameraLabs (Click here) just posted their FZ1000 review and do write:

Just to recap on some of the other great features the FZ1000 has to offer – 12fps continuous shooting, 1/4 speed 1080p video recording, built-in timelapse and stop motion shooting, 7-frame auto bracketing, fast DFD-assisted 49-area AF, and excellent wifi features. The only things it’s really missing for me are a touch-screen and a built-in ND filter, but there’s still loads of controls and of course the opportunity to mount an ND filter on the barrel if necessary; plus with an electronic shutter option at up to 1/16000, you’ll easily be able to deploy large apertures outdoors for stills.
Sony may have enjoyed a temporary lead in the premium superzoom / bridge market, but with the FZ1000, Panasonic has grabbed it back. The FZ1000 is one of the most exciting cameras of 2014 and arguably the classiest bridge camera to date which naturally qualifies it for a Cameralabs Highly Recommended award.

FZ-1000 preorders at Amazon (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here). In Europe at WexUK (Click here). In Asia at Digitalrev (Click here).
