New fast SLRmagic 17mm lens coming soon. And new 35mm f/0.95 version too.

The upcoming SLRmagic 35mm f/0.95 has been reviewed by EosHD. But I have been told that there will be a new updated version of the lens that will ship in September. Everyone having the current lens on preorder will get the updated (and even better quality) lens.

And not only that. Also a new fast 17mm prime lens will be announced soon! SLR Magic is really pushing a lot on the MFT lens development. And some of their lenses are now really of very good optical quality too. Nice to see so much third-party lens offer on the MFT system.

First full Panasonic GX7 reivew posted at ePhotozine (with RAW files).


And finally the first Panasonic GX7 review has been posted at ePhotozine (Click here). They also posted the first RAW files (but how the heck open them?). The conclusion is:

The Panasonic Lumix GX7 introduces a truly unique experience thanks to the tilting electronic viewfinder, and with a new sensor the camera delivers excellent image quality, with particularly impressive noise performance beating the previous class leader at high ISO settings.

Great cam. Let’s hope the new E-M1 has some surprise we are not aware of yet. Otherwise it’s the Panasonic that will that run as best new MFT camera.
