(FT5) Here is the Panasonic fast MicroFourThirds lens: 25mm f/1.4 (+ fast zoom!)

And finally, here is that fast lens we told you about a month ago. Panasonic says that the following three lenses are ‘under consideration':

– 25mm f/1.4 lens (It could be a MFT version of the Panasonic 25mm f/1.4? (Click here to see the classic FourThirds lens on eBay))

– Bright zoom (this is the new video lens we are waiting for!)

– Bright Wide-Angle

That’s good news! That’s exactly the lenses we need now. A fast zoom for our GH2, and a fast standard prime.

UPDATE: I like that “etc” at the bottom right of the picture :)

First Panasonic GH2 video test!

Prototype Panasonic GH2 Footage from Photokina 2010 from Andrew Reid on Vimeo.

EOSHD posted a first preview of the new Panasonic GH2. You can see some basic ISO-test. He says: “ISO 800 is silky smooth, it looks like ISO 200 on the GH1. It really is virtually noiseless. ISO 1600 is clean and ISO 3200 perfectly useable especially in video mode. Like with the GH1 there is a step change between ISOs higher up. On the GH1, the degradation happened between 800 and 1600 but on the GH1 it only goes down hill between 3200 and 6400 – a great improvement!

UPDATE: Amazon fixed the issue and removed the GH2. Link below does’t work anymore :(
Weird: Amazon has the SILVER Panasonic GH2 available for preorder for…$0,01 only (definitely a mistake!)

New Lensbaby 40mm f/1.6 for MicroFourThirds

Image courtesy: Tyson Robichaud

Our friend Tyson Robichaud just announced the new Lensbaby 40mm f/1.6 for MicroFourThirds lens (Lensbabies for classic 4/3 mount are already available) T.R writes:”This Lensbaby offers not only a relatively affordable choice, but one that will double as an Nikon F Mount adapter. When the standard Lensbaby Composer element is removed, the Tilt Transformer acts as a lens conversion mount which will enable any compatible Nikon lens to function as a tilt lens would.  Think macro with a controlled slice of focus enabling you to shoot an entire bug in focus at f/2.8 or f/4!  Or, create the tilt miniature “effect” with a fisheye or a super telephoto lens!  If you prefer to avoid the tilting portion of the deal, center your lens and lock it down with the locking ring on the Tilt Transformer and viola!  You have yourself an F mount adapter, or a 40mm (80mm efov) f/1.6 portrait lens!”
