Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 lens tested at SLRgear.

Share

SLRgear published their Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 test. The lens is very sharp, Chromatic Aberration is somewhat high for this lens, Vignetting and Distortion are negligible. And their conclusion is very short: “With sharp results and only slight issues with CA, Panasonic has produced a very nice walk-around lens “. Read the full review (with image samples and graphs) at SLRgear.

M43photo.blogspot compared the Panasonic 20mm with the new 14mm lens.

An FT5 rumor about Pentax coming soon at Mirrorlessrumors.com

As you know a few months ago I started Mirrorlessrumors.com. I needed a place where I can “park” the rumors I do receive about our competition. I didn’t write a lot on that website but now that Nikon and Pentax are coming with their systems it will become very interesting to follow the website.

To celebrate our first Pentax rumor we created a countdown like we did in the old days of when we started 43rumors ;) In a few hours we will post a few (but surprising) info about the upcoming Pentax mirrorless cameras. Take a look here: http://www.mirrorlessrumors.com/hot-pentax-mirrorlessrumors-countdown/.

Panansonic GH2 dissembled and analyzed.

Chipworks dissembled and analyzed the GH2 electronic. You can only read the first part of their article. After that you have to pay to read the rest!

There is a new GH2 review at CNET: “It’s speedy, feature-packed, and an excellent ILC for shooting video, but to consistently get really good photos out of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 requires shooting raw.

(FT4) Panasonic will redesign a few of the current lenses. 7-14mm OIS confirmed.


Image above: the current Panasonic 7-14mm f/4.0 lens.

I have an update about Panasonic lenses: A few weeks ago we received the rumor that Panasonic was going to update some of the current lenses. A second and a third source now confirmed that the rumor is correct. There will be a new 7-14mm OIS lens which should be announced the second half of the year. We don’t know yet what the other lenses are but we suspect the 45mm macro could also get trough some kind of redesign. The sources also confirmed that the m43 version of the current 25mm f/1.4 Four Thirds lens is coming in April (that’s FT5).
