(FT2) Hints (or mess) about the upcoming Leica lens on Amazon? Lens available on June 17?

Share

It’s not a secret that dealers already know the specs and price of the upcoming new Leica 25mm Micro Four Thirds lens. And it sounds like someone on Amazon (Click here) is making a bit of mess while preparing the new product page. The page from the old Four Thirds lens is getting elaborated. It says the item will be released on June 17 (that would be amazing if it would be true) and inside the product description it sayd the model is “25mm Micro Four Thirds“. The rest of the page still contains the info from the older four Thirds lens.

P.S.: You can help me to find some info by using google to find leaks about the lens. Drop me a line if you find something! Thanks!

P.P.S.: Fuji X100 preorders are back at Amazon (Click here).

Leica Noctilux comparison on Micro Four Thirds

The Leica Noctilux is so expensive that only a few people can afford it. So it’s quite impressive that 3Dkraft had the chance to test not one…but two different Noctilux lenses on Micro Four Thirds! He compared the qualities of the Leica Noctilux-M 1:0.95 / 50mm with its predecessor, the Noctilux-M 1:1.0 / 50mm. He tested the lenses on the GH2: “The Noctilux mounted to a micro Four Thirds camera results in an unusually balanced combination, but still appears “visually” balanced. If your camera is equipped with an electronic viewfinder providing magnification it is very helpful for precise focusing. The Noctilux 1.0 is said to have a certain focus shift on rangefinder cameras like the Leica M9, which was opimized ith the new 0.95er version. However – on cameras with electronic viewfinders this plays no role.
See the test at 3Dkraft (Click here).

P.S.: Get the Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 on eBay (Click here) if you want a fast lens. It’s “cheap”, has a very good image quality and is native Micro Four Thirds lens!

43rumors has some issues with google!

Hi!

As you have noticed google signs this website as “dangerous”. There have been a hack attempt tonight we solved very quickly. The problem is google blocked the website. I asked google to reaccept the website but sadly  google will need a couple of hours (or even one whole day!) to reaccept the website. In summary, 43rumors has no problem at all, it’s google that is very slow in updating their servers :(

(FT5) Panasonic GF3 will use a 12 Megapixels sensor. Announcement on Monday 7am London time!


And gone are the hopes that the GF3 might uses the same new G3 sensor. The GF3 will use a 12 Megapixel sensors which looks likes to be the same as the one used for the GF2. The specs are the same as the GF2 (same video quality). So the GF3 is only about size reduction and nothing else.
The other news is that the new Leica 25mm and the GF3 will be announced at 7am London time on Monday. As usual I will be here to give you all the links to previews, reviews, videos and other stuff like that. As usual help is appreciated! If you find some link or something I missed drop me a line at 43rumors@gmail.com! Thanks!

Panasonic G3 preorder search links to Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay.
