MicroFourThirds books in Germany and other countries.

Share

I noticed that in Germany you can find some nice books about MicroFourThirds cameras. Now they have two new books:
The Profibuch Olympus PEN: E-P1, E-P2 & E-PL1 (Gebundene Ausgabe) and the Digital ProLine: Das praktische Handbuch zur Panasonic Lumix GF1

Other countries do not have that choice. Amazon UK lists only the Magic Lantern Guides: Olympus E-P1 (Magic Lantern Compact Guides).

The same book is available for US citizen in amazon: Magic Lantern Guides: Olympus E-P1

The need for speed: Schneider Xenon 0.95/50mm


A dpreview forum user tested the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 on his Olympus E-P1. We also found some sample images on flickr (with the Panasonic G1).

The lens is very epxensive! Check it our for yourself on Ebay: $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Schneider-Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95

One more interesting test:
“Ruy” (dpreview forum user) modified the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Hexanon 57/1.2 AR if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Hexanon 57/1.2 AR if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Hexanon 57/1.2 AR if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Hexanon 57/1.2 AR if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Hexanon 57/1.2 AR if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Hexanon 57/1.2 AR if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Hexanon 57/1.2 AR if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Hexanon 57/1.2 AR if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Hexanon 57/1.2 AR if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Hexanon 57/1.2 AR if ($sel != '1')
{?>Hexanon 57/1.2 AR and is using it on his GF1.

Tell Phil Askey (dpreview) what lens he should review next!

Phil Askey (dpreview chief) asked MicroFourThirds user which lens he should review next. The Olympus 9-18mm lens or the Panasonic 7-14mm lens? Sad that he has no time to review both. So you choose!
How can you vote?
Please visit the dpreview thread if you want to convince Phil to review one of those lenses.

P.S.: Greetings from 43rumors to all the dpreview team!
