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.

Noktor price speculation and poll.

Many of you do believe the Noktor lens could be a modification/copy of the Senko lens. The actual price for a Senko lens is $730 (check it out here).

Now if the price of the new Noktor lens will be under $1000 (Euro 750) and the quality decent at 0.95 and good at f/1.2-f/1.4….

What kind of improvements or new features do you want to see for the E-P3? (select a maximum of three options)

The Noktor company response at 43rumors

I just received an email form the company:

Thanks for the message. The company is very real. There are a couple photographers with lenses now, so there will be a lot more images and footage along with the product launch next month. The info from google’s cache is incorrect. It was placeholder text while the site was developed. The main corrections are 480g weight and 23° Angle of View.
Goals? Develop and sell the fastest lens possible :)

As many of you noticed the Lens seems to be acopy of the Senko lens. more infos here: http://thephoblographer.com/2010/02/14/micro-four-thirds-noktor-lens-rumored-to-be-from-senko/

P.S: It is obvious that the lens is neither a Leica Lens or
Voigtländer Lens!
Leica Objektiv or Voigtländer Objektiv!

(FT5) HOT! New Noktor HyperPrime Lens 50mm f/0.95 for MicroFourThirds!

The HyperPrime 50mm f/0.95

UPDATE5: Just received an email form the company: “Thanks for the message. The company is very real. There are a couple photographers with lenses now, so there will be a lot more images and footage along with the product launch next month. The info from google’s cache is incorrect. It was placeholder text while the site was developed. The main corrections are 480g weight and 23° Angle of View.

Noktor will launch the fastest Lens for Micro 4/3rds on March 1st! They also have some image samples here: http://twitter.com/noktor. It is a dedicated MicroFourThirds lens! No Adapter needed!

UPDATE4: The main reason why I gave the FT5 value (which means there is a 90% the rumor is true) is that the website uses the official MicroFourThirds logo. The logo is trademarked and nobody can use it without the permission from Olympus/Panasonic!
UPDATE3: Message to the Noktor company: Can you contact me at 43rumors@gmail.com? Have some questions for you! Thanks
UPDATE2: New sample image here: http://noktor.com/stills/noktor_2.jpg
UPDATE: A new tweet form the company says: “Yes, it will be priced MUCH lower than the Noctilux :)

Google cache saved this data about the lens:

(FT2) Olympus cleaning E-3 stocks in Germany?

Just received that mail:

For a couple of months now, I am closely following an Olympus- Authorized marketplace on Ebay.de, which recently increased significantly the offers of B-ware E3+12-60 & E3+14-54 kits.

http://stores.shop.ebay.de/OlympusMarket

Items are auctioned.
The E3+12-60 sells for about 1100 to 1200 EUR. The E3+14-54 – for less than 1000.
Last night I purchased one. Waiting for delivery.

The sales agent in Germany is LIMAL and here is what it says on their website:
“Olympus chose LIMAL to operate the German eBay-Shop OlympusMarket and handle all logistics and sales transaction”

The items are claimed to be “Manufacturer Checked and Approved” and looking at the feedback on the seller it seems to be confirmed.

For me, it is a clear sign that Olympus is cleaning out the stocks. Hopefully, making space for the successor of the E-3 monster.

Thought you should know.
