Panasonic latest patent discloses an adapter for MicroFourThirds camera which adds mirror and phase detection on your camera. Remember only few patents do become real products.
Anyway do you really need to turn your mirrorless camera back into a classic DSLR?
Our friend Dracore which is following the NAB event in Las Vegas told us that Panasonic is “expecting the AG-AF100 to be available in December“. The Panasonic rep gave him the contact info to submit suggestions which may/may not make it into the final product.
I am sure Panasonic will take care of the suggestions of professionals filmmakeras more than the suggestion of our readers. We have also to consider that most of you are photographer more than videographer. So let’s give you some rules:
1) Vote if you really have some experience with video.
2) Vote if you are one of the potential buyers of the Panasonic AG-AF100
DSLRmagazine (click here to read the google english translation) analyzed the new Olympus 9-18mm and 14-150mm lenses. They have a lot of interesting information. An example? I didn’t know the Zuiko 9-18 mm lens focusing is performed through the movement of only a lens. This offers the advantage of minimal inertia of acceleration and braking.
According to dpreview the image quality of the Olympus 9-18mm lens is more or less on par with that of the Panasonic 7-14mm. The Olympus lens costs and weights less but the Panasonic lens has a better build quality, a wider angle and constant f/4 aperture.
