Share


If you are in absolute need of speed than Micro Four Thirds is the right system for you :) You not only have the Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 (Click here to see it on eBay) option but now also the Noktor 50mm f/0.95 is in Stock on eBay:
Sold by a Hong Kong eBay reseller (Click here).
Sold by a US eBay reseller (Click here).

I have both lenses and I use them mainly for video. For that purpose both lenses are very good. For stills the Nokton 25mm has a much better and “different” kind of image quality. It’s perfect to take shot pictures from my brothers baby!

Panasonic Leica 25mm f/1.4 review at Optyczne.

The polish website Optyczne (Click here to read the translation) intensively tested the new Panasonic Leica 25mm f/1.4 lens. In short they say the image quality is “sensational” in the center of the frame (even at f/1.4!). The border quality is not exceptional at the widest aperture. You have to stop down to get top results on the edges of the frame. There is only a small amount of Chromatic Aberration and Astigmatism. You can also take pictures of light sources like Sun or Lights as there is no problem with flare. The only “negatives” is the little bit too high vignetting at f/1.4 aperture and marked coma.

The Panasonic Leica lens is in Stock at Amazon US (overpriced), Amazon UK (Click here), Amazon Japan (Click here) and of course plenty of them are sold via asian resellers on eBay (Click here).

More preorder search at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay.

New Panasonic GF3 and Olympus E-PM1 (p)reviews. E-PM1 in Stock.


Engadget (Click here) posted an Olympus E-PM1 hands-on (The video is here on top): “Overall, our impressions of the PEN Mini: affordable, adorable and it took some pretty darn good photos. We really enjoyed this cam
Also Digitalcamerareview (Click here) posted an Olympus E-PM1 preview: “Since size (or lack thereof) is the E-PM1’s biggest difference from other Pen cameras, know that those with big hands looking for a solid grip will not like holding the E-PM1. It’s designed for portability and mobility, and though I didn’t have any trouble getting accustomed to it for an afternoon of shooting, other shooters may find it hard to grip.”. The black E-PM1 is in Stock for the very first time at BHphoto (Click here). You can check the E-PM1 availability also at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay.

Digitalcamerainfo (Click here) posted a full 21 page long (!) Panasonic GF3 review: “In total, the GF3 is a very appealing compact camera that, through sheer association with the Micro Four Thirds lens family, offers incredible upside for anybody—enthusiast or novice—willing to pick it up and give it a try.” Panasonic GF3 price check at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay.

Something else: There is a new Panasonic GH2 page (Click here) with pictures from Bence Maté.
