(FT2) New 45mm pancake from Panasonic coming?


The new Panasonic 45mm lens is rumored to have the size of that wonderfull Pentax SMC DA 40mm f/2.8 limited pancake.

I got two rumors from new sources saying that there will be a new 45mm X pancake from Panasonic. According to one of the sources there are currently several prototypes of 90mm equivalent pancakes. What really makes me dreaming about that rumor is that the source said it has the size and style of the Pentax SMC DA 40mm f/2.8 limited pancake (Click here to see that lens on eBay). A second source said that the lens will be a X lens with powerzoom, have macro capability like the current Panasonic 45mm f/2.8.. Sound slike a dream lens! If the lens comes for real than let’s hope Panasonic will not set an impossible price for it!

Reminder -> Rumors classification explained (FT= FourThirds):
FT1=1-20% chance the rumor is correct
FT2=21-40% chance the rumor is correct
FT3=41-60% chance the rumor is correct
FT4=61-80% chance the rumor is correct
FT5=81-99% chance the rumor is correct

Which new mirrorless camera from the competition is the “nicest” m43 competitor?

After the Olympus PEN and Panasonic GF3 announcement in back in June we had three new mirrorless cameras from the competition.
I am now curious to hear which one caught your attention, which one is a camera you would love to see with a Micro Four Thirds mount! I added the Fuji X10 camera as option on the poll. It has a fixed lens but it’s certainly an interesting mirrorless camera!

What camera (from the competition) do you like more?

There are some interesting positive aspects on almost any I mentioned here: The Fuji X10 controls, the NEX-7 built-in OLED viewfinder, the Sony NEX-5n sensors. I left out the NX200 because I really don’t know what to like about that camera!

P.S.: On Wednesday Nikon will announce their new mirrorless system!

More Voigtländer price drops. Down to 599 Euro (deal dead now)

The polish dealer “Infoto” sold six NEW(!) Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 lenses for 599 on eBay (Click here). Sadly they sold all lenses within a couple of minutes! But as I told you the price of the Nokton is falling and expect more such deals soon! BY the way Infoto is a well know and trusted store that is also selling the new Samyang lenses: The 7.5mm fisheye (Click here) and the Four Thirds 35mm f/1.4 lens (Click here).

Reminder: A full review of the Nokton is available at Photozone.
