Veydra lenses reviewed by TheCameraStoreTV.

Share

From TCSTV: “If you’re a low-budget or independent filmmaker, chances are that cinema lenses are out of reach for most products. Veydra is attempting to rectify that with their Mini-Primes, beautiful lenses made for Micro 4/3. But have to many compromises been made to make them this size and cost?

Veydra MFT lenses are available at BHphoto (Click here).

Full 8mm PRO lens review at SLRgear. And a 7-14mm Panasonic vs Olympus comparison.

Bildschirmfoto 2015-03-14 um 10.48.43

SLRgear (Click here) tested the new 8mm fisheye PRO lens from Olympus:

Images shot with the lens offer pleasing sharpness; corners are often out of focus in wide-aperture (ƒ/1.8) shots because of the subject distance, rather than characteristics of the lens. It doesn’t take much to get the full frame of a scene in focus – just back up and stop down a few aperture stops.

Mirrorlessons (Click here) posted the full M.Zuiko 7-14mm comparison with the Panasonic 7-14:

There isn’t a drastic difference concerning sharpness. The differences in perspective distortion are a question of taste. I would say that the Olympus lens can be a better choice for precise architectural compositions while I could recommend the Lumix version for landscapes. The M.Zuiko version has the obvious advantage of having a faster aperture, which can make all the difference on a m4/3s camera, especially when shooting indoors. It is also more versatile thanks to its closer focusing and bokeh capabilities and has a better resistance to flare.

New Panasonic 30mm Macro review at CameraLabs.

Gordon from CameraLabs (Click here) tested the new Panasonic 30mm macro lens. He writes:

In terms of quality I have absolutely no complaints with the Lumix G 30mm f2.8. It delivers great-looking close-ups with attractive rendering, and when focused on more distant subjects will keep details sharp right into the corners. Compared with the Leica 45mm f2.8, the new Lumix looks like a bargain. Sure the Leica has a focus limiter, a more comfortable minimum focusing distance and more refined rendering, but personally speaking they’re not enough to justify the considerable price difference.

New Panasonic lens store links:

Panasonic MACRO 30mm f/2.8 MEGA O.I.S. Lens at Amazon, BHphoto, Adorama, WexUK or RedcoonDE.
