New Nokton 10,5mm MFT double test.

Bildschirmfoto 2015-06-14 um 09.59.31

Mirrorlessons posted a Voigtlander Nokton 10.5mm f/0.95 Gallery:

The fact that there were many straight lines in my photographs also brought out the slight barrel and perspective distortion produced by this lens, which is nothing out of the ordinary but worth keeping in mind when you are compositing your shot.

Focus Numerique (gogole translated text) writes:

The optical quality of this 10.5 mm disappointed us. In short, it is sharp in the center but only at the center. As soon as one moves away, the details become blurred.Finally, the focus ring is much too long. It’s almost unusable, even with the best digital assistants Manual Focus (peaking and magnification).

New image samples can be seen at Dylan Cuthbert Flickr page.

You can get the lens in many stores like BHphoto (Click here), CameraQuest (Click here) and Photovillage (Click here). In Europe at FotoMundus (Click here) in Asia at Taku (Click here).

Olympus 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO tested at CameraStuffReview.

Bildschirmfoto 2015-05-12 um 07.01.02

CameraStuffReview (Click here) posted their full Olympus 7-14mm PRO lens test:

If you compare the Panasonic 7-14 mm f/4 with the Olympus 7-14 mm f/2.8 at full aperture, then the Panasonic scores a bit higher. If you set both lenses to f/4, then the roles are reversed.
At very short distances (less than 1 meter), the corners of shots made at 7mm are less sharp than for pictures take from a distance of more than 1 meter. This can be the explanation for a number of test reports that have appeared for the Olympus 7-14mm in which the sharpness in the corners is lower at 7mm. The practice shots at all focal distances are remarkably sharp in the corners.
With the fantastic Panasonic 7-14mm f/4, the bar is set high. With the 7-14mm f/2.8 PRO, Olympus pushed it even higher.

Anonymous:Here is a video about an expedition i participated one year ago. It was a very small expedition to an uncharted area in Fireland and i filmed it with the GH3 and Panasonic and Walimex lenses. There had been very tough circumstances and i had to reduce everything to the absolut minimum. The GH3 and especially the Panasonic 12-35/2.8 performed very good under snow, rain and storm and due to this very bad weather conditions i´m really happy with the result of the movie. It´s maybe not this super nice color corrected piece of art, but for me in this case the story about our adventure was in the foreground and therefor with this setup i had a perfect companion. https://vimeo.com/129314206. I also made a lot of pictures with the Olympus OMD EM5 and Panasonic lenses and some pictures of the landscapes of Fireland are in this album. Enjoy! https://www.flickr.com/photos/leopoldfuchs/sets/72157651775474712
