New Noktor 50mm f/0.95 samples

For ten days, I have been testing the Noktor 50mm f/0.95 lens. I bought the lens from Noktor and they were as kind to send me sample number 000000002 ;)
I have to say that I am not disappointed at all with the lens. I expected much worse results at f/0.95. The lens is very good at medium apertures and it is nice to have the f/0.95 aperture when you absolutely need it. Of course it is soft but it is very nice for “creative” use. The real strength of this lens is when you shoot videos. Videos taken with f/0.95 aperture are sharp -> take a look here on vimeo.

After a few days of testing I can give you some images taken with the Noktor 50mm f/0.95 Lens. By the way, now the lens is on its way to photozone.de where it will be tested!

Let’s start with the classic aperture test. Click on picture to enlarge:

I also tried to shoot at full aperture in daylight and the effect you get is quite “interesting” :)

This lens is very useful when you want to capture details:

And when you shoot landscapes at f/0.95 you get results like this:

The 100% crop of the last picture looks like this:

Shooting in fairly dark situations. The following three pictures were taken in very dark rooms. With no other lens I would be able to take these shots!

Some other pictures:

Should you buy the lens? It depends. If you don’t need the f/0.95 aperture there are plenty of cheaper lenses. If you want sharp f/0.95 pictures get the expensive Leica Noctilux 0.95.
Buy the lens if you want to make videos with it (yes it is good enough!), or if you like the “creative” effect at f/0.95.

Cheers!

The Maitani modular system

Yesterday (read here) we told you that the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-3 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-3 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-3 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-3 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-3 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-3 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-3 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-3 if ($loc == 'JA' OR $loc == 'JP')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-3 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-3 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-3 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Olympus E-3 successor could become Olympus first “modular” camera.

With the help of our readers we discovered that our Olympus guru Maitani had already developed such a prototype long time ago (for film cameras).

You can find more about it here: maitani-fan.co.cc
The MDN prototype was the first Olympus SLR designed to be a full-featured, multi-functional system that could be used for a wide range of purposes by assembling different units, each with a single function. It was developed before the OM-1.
For example, the film is in a single film pack, and the shutter provides just the focal plane shutter function. The mirror is a mirror and has just one function. The user can combine the desired functions to create a single camera.
In designing a system that can be put together in any configuration, it is extremely difficult to design the mounts used to connect the items.
There is also a cheap, mass-market camera as one of the units in the system. Three units are combined together to create a camera. This is the MDS. This camera is made first and later becomes the M-1 or OM-1.
M=Maitani, D=dark box, N= normal, S=simple

43rumors wants to thanks the Maitani Fans for mantaining such an important website about our legendary inventor!
