The need for speed: The extremely rare Zeika Nominar C-mount M25 f/0.95 !

Zeika is a Japanese Optical brand name combined with “Zeiss”s “Z” and “Leica”s “eica” part (ingenious). It’s a product made in the 1960′s providing the same lens to the US brand, Carl Meyer and Nighthawk.

UPDATE: GF1 deal gone (price drops also in Japan but not in Europe?)

UPDATE:
The superdeal on Amazon (Panasonic GF1 with 20mm f/1.7 Aspherical Lens for $649.99) and BHphoto (same price) is GONE!

One of our readers also sent us an info where he says that also in Japan the price dropped to 48,500 yen (about $570 USD). Plz send me the link to the store ;)

I didn’t find any big price drop in Europe :(

UPDATE: A very good deal in Holland. 599 Euro for the GF1 with 14-45mm lens at Fotoquelle.nl

Olympus 14-150mm and Panasonic G1 reviewed!

Letsgodigital tested the new Olympus 14-150mm lens: http://www.letsgodigital.org/en/26746/olympus-lens-review/. Their conclusions? On a Olympus body: “For every other photographer, it is recommended for easy and relaxed photography!“. If you own a Panasonic MFT camera than you will lack IS (Image Stabilization).

Alphamountworls also wrote a nice Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 Review: http://www.alphamountworld.com/reviews/panasonic-lumix-dmc-g1-review. Cgarrard has some mixed feelings regarding the G1 but he amdits that “I grab the G1 quite often right now.“.
