EU deal: Nokton 17.5mm for 1020 Euro (you save 280)

Share

It’s always hard to find deals in Europe. And I know many of us are jealous of all this constant US deals. So here is a real deal on my favorite lens, the Nokton 17.5mm. Usually you get the lens for 1.289,99 but you can finally have it for 1.019 Euro at FotoMundus eBay (Click here).

This is definitely the one lens I would pickup for my everyday shooting. And if you want to read some review just check out Lepidi, Admiringlight and Pekka Potka’s articles.

New E-PM2 wrap up. Gets DxOmarked, reviews and a new TvAD!

Share


New E-PM2 ad from Olympus.

The cheapest of all new Olympus MFT cameras got DxOmarked and unsurprisingly scored the same result as the E-PL5 and E-PM5. Neocamera also tested (and liked) the E-PM2: “Given it outclasses its predecessor in terms of image quality and speed, it presents a worthy upgrade for those not ready to move to a more expensive model.” For the size and price this little camera may turn out to have the best price-image quality ratio of any MFT camera! Now Panasonic really has to come out with a new GX model to compete against Olympus…what are you waiting for?

E-PM2 at Amazon, Adorama, Bhphoto. In EU at Amazon Germany, Amazon UK, Amazon France. And the Gariz case for the camera in Black (Click here) and Brown (Click here).

A day in Montmartre – [Panasonic Lumix GH3] from emeric on Vimeo.

Some little news about the GH3:

Our friends from Hybridcams shot that nice video with the GH3. Thanks for sharing! And our reader Twills sent me this: “The Panasonic GH3 specs page is being constantly updated as the firmware is finalized. The shutter duration spec did not specify a “Bulb” mode time limit before. Now it says it goes up to Approx. 60 minutes. That is great news as the GH2 is limited to 128 seconds in Bulb mode:
Still Images: 1/4,000 – 60 and Bulb (Approx. 60 minutes)
Motion Images: 1/16,000 – 1/30 (NTSC), 1/16,000 – 1/25 (PAL)
Keep an eye on the page below to see what else is updated when the firmware is finally complete.
