micro 4/3 adapter for enlarger lens (Rodenstock-Schneider-DURST…)


The Adapter

The italian engineer Adriano Lolli created a new adapter. Original description from his website: “Adapter for obiectives by magnifying with screw thread M39 cameras in 39×1 graft Olympus, Lumix, Panasonic, Leica, etc. with bayonet micro 4 / 3. Allows you to mount all the breeding objectives with M39 thread on graft focamere micro 4/3. If somebody has a lens with a different diameter of thread, please note that we realize every kind of fitting. Also check the draft of your objective for allowing focus properly: it must be put into the range of the values shown in the second photo (from 20 mm to 28 mm). We realize the same adapter for different measures, see article: 3189

Nice! Now we can use our “old” enlarger lens on MFT!

Is that a real 55mm F/1.0 lens with original MicroFourThirds mount?

I just received an email from one of our readers which found that lens on ebay. The description of the owner says: “This lens is 55mm f/1.0~f/11 , was manufactory in Japan by Kowa. Lens rework on Panasonic Lumix G1 GF1 GH1 or Olympus E-P1 E-P2.“. The lens fits on a MicroFourThirds camera without any adapter!

(P.S: The lens is currently in auction)

UPDATED with one more review: E-P2 review at CameraLabs and Focus Numerique (and two new E-PL1 previews)

One of my favorite websites tested the Olympus E-P2. Click here to read the whole review made by CameraLabs! The most interesting part to me is when they talk about the E-P2 versus the new E-PL1: “There’s simply no getting away from the fact the E-PL1 includes the most important aspects of the E-P2 at a lower price and throws a flash in too.

One more E-P2 review has been posted by Focus Numerique (click here to read the google english translation)

UPDATE: One more review has been posted by digitalcamerareview.com.

Panasonic basic plans for 2010…a little to basic :)

At a convention in Munich Panasonic “unveiled” their 2010 plan for the G-System. Photographyblog knows the three key points of the “plan”:
– Expand Lineup
– Pursue Easy Operation
– Expand Lens Lineup

That’s kind of a plan! :)
