First look on the new Veydra Mini Primes for Micro Four Thirds.


ProVideocoaltition (Click here) is the first site testing the new Veydra MFT Cine lenses:

If I had to describe Veydras in one pithy phrase, I’d say, “scaled-down Ultra Primes for micro four thirds cameras”. They’re sharp, rectilinear, and clean: good, workmanlike optics with no nasty surprises.
They aren’t the fastest lenses available, but they also avoid the soft, soapy renderings you get WFO on lenses like Super Speeds, Rokinon T1.5s, and Nokton f/0.95s: you can shoot these puppies wide open and intercut them with T5.6 shots from the same lenses and not worry about a substantial change in the look.

Digicameinfo spotted that Olympus officially registered the name of the new E-M5II camera at Taiwan’s Nccmember.ncc.gov.tw site. This means our rumors are 100% correct as we reported the name of the camera weeks ago along some crucial info like:

same 16 MP E-M5 sensor
sensor shift shooting mode to create up to 40MP on the fly with up to 8 images combined
no 4K recording (but improved video quality over the E-M5)
announcement first week of February

One more thing: There will be one more Olympus camera announced before CP+. Likely a fixed lens one.
