New $50 fisheye MFT lens from a chinese company

SonyAlphaRumors reports about a new fisheye lens that will be available in MFT mount version too. They got a message saying this:

Some info from a Chinese mirrorless forum:
 http://tieba.baidu.com/p/5004916064?pid=104825892670&cid=104826339998#104826339998
 This guy claimed that his little team from Shenzhen, China is designing a super compact fisheye macro lens for E/X/M43 mount. The length is only 6mm. On APS-C it’s a 180 diagonal fisheye. The aperture is F8 and you cannot stop down. The minimum working distance is only 1 cm. It contains 1 AA glass. The corner sharpness wouldn’t be worse than the other fisheye lenses on the market (at least he said so).
 They have finished the first prototype. Several samples are included in the thread. The price is 299 CNY = 43.44 USD. They’ll start a fund raising program from March on the Chinese website JD.com (kind of like Amazon). The early bird price is 249 CNY = 36.18 USD. The product is planned to be shipped from June. But I guess they don’t have any plan for oversea market yet.

(FT4) New Backmagic MFT 4K camera to be announced tomorrow? Watch the live stream!

I just got that rumor about a new Blackmagic Pocket MFT Camera

M43 mount. 4K, same or almost the same size, better battery life, H265 possible. Might see it at NAB although will not ship then (lol – Blackmagic shipping on time).

And tomorrow (March2) Blackmagic will live stream a new camera announcement. But it’s unclear if the camera will be announced tomorrow or at the NAB show in April.

UPDATE: The live stream is over. Black magic did not announce a new MFT camera today. But as our source said yesterday a new MFT camera could be announced at the NAB show in April.

 

Thanks source!
