“How I saved thousands buying FD lenses” (by Tyson Robichaud)

Tyson Robichaud just tested four Canon FD lenses on his Panasonic GF1!

Following lenses have been reviewed (click on the link to check the lens price on Ebay):

On his website you can see very nice images taken with each one of the four lenses.
And what is the final statement?
All in all, I have to say that I have been impressed with the return for such a small investment.

Thanks Tyson!

P.S.: Two different Canon FD to microFourThirds adapters are available on amazon

(FT2) Olympus E-PL1 bundle with the new 9-18mm lens?

A dpreview user had a small talk with an Olympus representant. According to him the “E-PL1 will be bundled with the Olympus 9-18mm Lens and also with the Olympus 14-150mm Lens at very low prices, he seemed to be hinting at around £800-900. ($1200-$1400)

More infos he received:
new mount options being available via adapters by Novaflex

43rumors message

Today I will finish my latest documentary. The only interesting thing for you about that movie is that for the first time I used short movies taken with the Olympus E-P1. In fact that camera has become very useful for me. Nobody paid attention when I was recording with it! And that created some unique scenes.

So finally stress will be over soon and I can focus on new rumors. During the latest weeks I received some interesting news. A camera announcement is not imminent but I have some hints about what’s coming next. And if the news I received are correct Olympus is definitely going to surprise us!

See you soon!
P.S: Today cross the finger for my documentary presentation ;)

First Noktor portraits at f/0.95

I found some time to take some shots when I was out for lunch today. The first thing I noticed is that it is very difficoult to focus correctly when you are in hurry and in outdoor conditions. Probably an electronic viewfinder would help a lot. I will redo some portrait as soon as I have more time. So do not judge the lens based on my shots!
Here some portraits (feel free to download the images but please not use the pictures for any commercial purpose)

Images taken with the Olympus E-P1 (.jpg / normal settings) + Noktor 50mm f/0.95


And finally my lunch! :)
