(FT5) Panasonic 8mm f/3.5 fisheye to be unveiled next week

According to many rumors we received from different sources Panasonic will launch a the new P&S camera but also the long awaited 8mm f/3.5 fisheye lens. It will be smaller than any other 8mm lens on market (smaller than the Olympus 8mm f/3.5Olympus 8mm f/3.5Olympus 8mm f/3.5Olympus 8mm f/3.5Olympus 8mm f/3.5Olympus 8mm f/3.5Olympus 8mm f/3.5Olympus 8mm f/3.5Olympus 8mm f/3.5Olympus 8mm f/3.5Olympus 8mm f/3.5Olympus 8mm f/3.5 and the Sigma 8mm f/3.5Sigma 8mm f/3.5Sigma 8mm f/3.5Sigma 8mm f/3.5Sigma 8mm f/3.5Sigma 8mm f/3.5Sigma 8mm f/3.5Sigma 8mm f/3.5Sigma 8mm f/3.5Sigma 8mm f/3.5Sigma 8mm f/3.5Sigma 8mm f/3.5).

It doesn’t come with optical image stabilizer and it can’t take filter (like the Panasonic 7-14mm).

We don’t know when the lens will be in Stock but we really hope Panasonic will not make us wait too long!

Via Photorumors:
The Panasonic FX75 will have 14MP and a Leica 24mm ultra-wide-angle f/2.2 Summicron lens with 5x optical zoom. The camera will support HD video in AVCHD Lite format. No RAW file format.

(FT2) Olympus future modular camera with tilt-shift option?


The following rumor has been sent by a new source. I post it because I was not able to get confirmation from other sources. Maybe some of you can tell me more about it 😉

According to the new source “One module will use the space that is taken up normally with the mirror to perform tilt&shift functions with the sensor…..so in other words if you think about how tilt and shift was done with the old 5×4 view cameras5×4 view cameras5×4 view cameras5×4 view cameras5×4 view cameras5×4 view cameras5×4 view cameras5×4 view cameras5×4 view cameras5×4 view cameras5×4 view cameras by moving the film plane. The only difference here would be the sensor plane would be shifted……..could be novel because rather than performing tilt and shift in the lenses it would be done with the sensor as in a view camera……this would mean you could have tilt and shift function with zoom lenses!!!
