One more email from Noktor


I just received this mail from Noktor: “Senko, Navitar, Yakumo, etc all re-brand their lenses from a single japanese optical company. They do not make the lenses. The Noktor lens is slightly different in mechanical design, and has a different internal anti-reflective coating as well.

Olympus E-P2 versus Panasonic GF1 at DxO mark!

DxO mark just posted their latest sensor test of the Panasonic GF1 and Olympus E-P2. As expected there is only a marginal difference.

Just for fun I added a link to the triple comparison between the GF1+E-P2+the new Canon 550D (T2i).

The Notkor 50mm f/0.95 lens for MicroFourThirds is very similar to the three lenses pictured above. I looked around the web and that’s the info I found about the three lenses. Feel free to add your links by commenting this post.
