Testing various ‘legacy’ 50mm lenses on the Panasonic GF1


I just saw a very good review on Pbase about various ‘legacy’ 50mm lenses on the Panasonic GF1.

Following lenses have been tested (click on the link to see the lens on eBay):

1. Canon 50mm f1.2 LTM
2. Canon 50mm f1.4 LTM
3. Leica 50mm Summilux f1.4 (first version) – M fit
4. Jupiter 3 50mm f1.5 (copy of the Zeiss 50/1.5)
5. Leica Summicron 50mm f2 (pre-asph new version, 1980s-1990s) – M fit
6. Leica Summicron 50mm f2 (pre-asph, chrome older version) – M fit
7. Voigtlander Heliar 50mm f2
8. Leica Elmar 50mm f2.8 (old M fit collapsable version)

It has been a huge surprise for me to read from the test that the Coigtländer Heliar showed the post performance! Do you agree?

He also tested the Black&White performance.
One more test is available here: http://www.pbase.com/nickdemarco/test_3_final

Olympus E-P2 review at Forum Olympus France

Forum Olympus France just posted a new Olympus E-P2 review.

http://www.forum-olympus-france.com/presse/16/03/2010/olympus-e-p2-review-2/

(google english translation)

This review is quite complete on how the E-P2 is in the “real life”.

For instance, you will find pictures of the E-P2 viewfinder compared with an E-3 and a Canon 5D and a picture showing how this viewfinder is efficient regarding depth of field an out of focus area.
