Just a small update about the MicroFourThirds competition. It seems that Sony is going to announce two or more mirrorless cameras on PMA (click here to read the specs on SonyAlphaRumors). Samsung is also going to announce a cheaper NX camera (source: k-rumors.com).
What’s common with the the two rumors is that it seems that both companies will present very compact cameras (like the Pen-series or Panasonic GF1).
Interesting: Canon and Nikon should not unveil any mirrorless camera soon…
I just received this mail from Noktor: “Senko, Navitar, Yakumo, etc all re-brand their lenses from a single japanese optical company. They do not make the lenses. The Noktor lens is slightly different in mechanical design, and has a different internal anti-reflective coating as well.“
The Notkor 50mm f/0.95 lens for MicroFourThirds is very similar to the three lenses pictured above. I looked around the web and that’s the info I found about the three lenses. Feel free to add your links by commenting this post.
