World Premiere !!! SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE T0.95 / 50mm Part II : The Day Tests from Seb Farges on Vimeo.

Olympus PEN Mini E-PM1 review at Cameralabs (Click here): “Although it lacks the E-PL3’s mode dial and flip-out screen as well as some of its other physical controls, the E-PM1 is as capable in most other respects as its larger more expensive sibling, so don’t rule it out if you’re looking for an affordable DSLR replacement or companion.

Lumix X 45-175mm lens test at m43photo (Click here): “The newer Lumix X 45-175mm lens is a good improvement over the existing Lumix G 45-200mm lens. It is better optically, and much more compact and light. It also feel more solid, without any extending section when zooming.

Olympus 12-50mm user experience review at Robin Wong (Click here): “At the center of the frame, I find the image quality of the 12mm end being shot wide open to be more than adequately sharp. I dare to say that it is slighty, yet noticeably sharper than all iterations of the previous M.Zuiko 14-42mm kit lenses, at 14mm widest end.

Lens bokeh “battle” at aleefede (Click here). Surprise, the Samyang 85mm wins! As you know this is a Four Thirds lens and honestly I absolutely love their lenses! But they should get rid of the multiple brands they are using for their lenses. You can find Samyang Four Third lenses on eBay under the following names:
Samyang Walimex Rokinon Opteka Falcon Vivitar Bower You really don’t need that! Makes me not eays to find a lens 🙂

  • I must admit- I was always skeptical of SLR Magic, re-bagging old C-Mounts, and acquisition of Noktor. But the Wide Angle recently, and this- they really seem to be upping the quality.

  • Samyang rules – and I agree, they really need to skip those ridiculous aliases..

    I have the 7.5mm and it’s Fantastic.

    The Slr Magic 12mm is another wonderful lens! I just did a test video for them that I need to send over..

    Admin, you labelled Robin Wong as Robert Wong. 😀

  • Mice

    It’s like someone invented a “focus flashlight” … If you point it on something, it will be in focus!

    That, or the lens makes it look like the world is full of large glowing germs.

  • Can’t use it on my GH2 wihout it having OIS. Anything above 20mm needs OIS in video. This is a shaky, nervous peace of footage.

  • slrgear

    slrgear actually mentioned the 14-42X is even better than 14-45
