US deal: Panasonic 45mm for sub $700 (+ more lens price drop)

Share


The Panasonic 45mm lens is now in Stock for less than $700 at Amazon and BHphoto. That’s a much more affordable price than the almost $900 we had to pay for it months ago. You can read a review of the lens at Photozone.

And also the new Panasonic 100-300mm lens gets a new discount. It’s in Stock for less than $540 at Amazon (Click here). Combine those deals with the recent Panasonic 7-14mm price drop and you will notice that Panasonic is lowering the price of some of their best lenses. To bad the prices in Europe and Asia are still high. Look at the price trend of the 7-14mm lens in Germany:

Pretty boring :)

Thanks JRK

AG-AF100 lens iris noise…

John Brawley tested the Panasonic GH2 and the AG-AF100 cameras. He complains one particular issue the AG-AF100 has:
Listen to the noise picked up by the camera mike as I change the iris on the camera. It actually sounded worse to me than what was recorded in this clip This is a test clip shot on an AF 102 (AF100). that was done using the Olympus 7-14 and a Panasonic m4/3 adaptor. I tested it with a great many 4/3 lenses from both Panasonic and Olympus. They all make the same noise. The interesting thing is that the same lenses and adaptors on the GH2 didn’t seem to make the same noise.”

SLRmagic needs your advice (50mm, 40mm, 12mm lens?)

As you know SLRmagic makes cheap quality and cheap priced m43 lenses based on current CCTV lens design (like the 26mm f/1.4 and 35mm f/1.7 lenses). Via Twitter they are asking m43 owners what kind of lenses they would like to be developed by the company. I thought it would be nice to help them by creating that poll:

What lens would you buy?

Panasonic GF2 review at DCresource (+Olympus XZ-1 test at Focus Numerique -> f/1.8 lens super sharp!)

DCresource tested the new Panasonic GF2: “It offers very good photo quality, snappy performance, a touchscreen LCD with a customizable interface, the best Auto mode on the planet, and Full HD video recording. The bad news is that it has issues with redeye, underexposure, and highlight clipping, and one of the available kit lenses isn’t great, either.

Focus Numerique tested the Olympus XZ-1 and the results are astonishing! The lens is super sharp even wide open (at f/1.8)!!! Distortion is minimal. The only moderate issue is Vignetting. Image quality is good from ISO 100 to 400. Dynamic range is a little bit less than the Panasonic LX5. Message to Olympus: Great acamera, but please we want more good lenses for our Micro Four Thirds system! Thanks :)
