Incredible Panasonic GF1 price drop (and yes GF2 within few months coming)


Oh yes guys, the GF2 will come within few months (very early 2011!) and that’s why we are continually having new price drops on the Panasonic GF1.

Just look at Amazon US: The Panasonic GF1+20mm lens is now in Stock for $599 (Click here to get the camera!). One month ago the price was over $800!

And there are also many price drops in Europe. As usual I can’t check every shop in every european country so I give you only a few links to my affiliate shops. Pixmania usually is one of the stores that has very good prices (Click on country name): Pixmania Deutschland, Pixmania Belgium, Pixmania France, Pixmania Austria, Pixmania UK, Pixmania Nederland, Pixmania Poland, Pixmania España,Pixmania Italia.

And here you have the links to european Amazon stores: Amazon Deutschland, Amazon UK and Amazon France

We told you that Panasonic would lower the price but I don’t believe it will become cheaper as it already is. So if you want the camera buy it 😉

Philippe posted some image sample of the new GH2 on Flickr

David Long made that nice GH1 vs GH2 comparison graph based on the latest Diwa-award test. DR= Dynamic range SNR= Signal to noise ratio. Click on pictures to enlarge!

Ananonymous source told us that “the 100-300 lens will be available in mid-November, and the GH2 is scheduled to arrive in the US on Nov. 28 or 29.

PanasonicGH2 preorders:
You can preorder the GH2 at Amazon US but unlike BHphoto they don’t have the body only option :(
In Europe Amazon UK and Amazon France do accept preorders!

Voigtländer 25mm f/0.95 finally in Stock in Germany (+ RAW image samples)


The german store Fotomundus is the first store having the new Voigtländer 25mm f/0.95 Micro Four Thirds lens in Stock (UPDATE: Now sold out!!). Check out the Fotomundus website or the Fotomundus eBay store (Click here). ANother german store will have the lens in Stock in a few days: Bayern-Fotoversand eBay store (Click here).

Björn Utpott posted two images taken with the GF1+Voigtländer 25mm combo. Thee is also one RAW image zou can download here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1778054/BU_100924_120308_F095.RW2

The new Voigtländer is 1.5 stops brighter than the 20mm f/1.7 lens. The lens alone weights 410g and Björn noticed that “the camera be somewhat unstable held at arms length, reflections on the rear screen can make it difficult to judge the optimum focus distance“. “I’m still debating whether adding this lens will be a priority. On the one hand, it has amazing potential as a low light lens where you can choose to work with a relatively shallow depth of field. On the other hand, it’s quite heavy, expensive and automatic control of focus and aperture are not supported.
