Toyo Optics 12.5-75mm review.

FacebookShare

We are all waiting for the day that Olympus will introduce their famous f/2.0 zooms in native Micro Four Thirds mount. But maybe you were not aware that there is already a cheaper and faster zoom lens out there. It is the Toyo Optics 12.5-75mm. A reader sent me this link to an one year old review of the lens tested on the GH2. Anyway, while this may be a good solution for a few of you I still hope that Olympus will do some f/2.0 zooms too. Does it make sense for the MFT system? I think the answer is yes!

Some Toyo lenses can be found on eBay (Click here).

The two superb Zuiko f/2.0 zooms:
14-35mm f/2.0 on eBay (Click here) and via Slidoo eBay.
35-100mm f/2.0 on eBay (Click here) and via Slidoo eBay.

Panasonic Keynote on January 8th (Lumix compact cameras coming)

FacebookShare

Panasonic CEO Tsuga will have a Keynote on January 8th at the CES show in Las Vegas. On the camera front we can expect many new compact cameras. No MFT camera should be announced at the event. The main talk will be about new camcorders, TV’s and other electronic stuff. But we will likely not have to wait a long time to see new MFT products. The CP+ show in Japan starts on January 31st and there is a BIG chance to see the new GF camera by than.
And…let’s dream….what about a new GX camera too?
