Leica 25mm f/1.4 reviewed on photozone: New resolution record!


The well known german website photozone tested the Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 Four Thirds Lens: “The Summilux has a highly unusual resolution characteristic. It seems to be “Noct-like” (the Noct-Nikkor 58mm f/1.2 is a legend here) which means that it is exceedingly sharp at large apertures but it doesn’t really get much better when stopping down. In fact the lens broke the old resolution record of our previous 4/3 tests and that’s by QUITE a margin … at f/2!

Check out the lens on Amazon or Ebay.

Message to Panasonic: Make a MicroFourThirds version of that lens and I bet that many of our readers will buy it!

The need for speed: The Leica Noctilux 0.95 (P.S: Noktor is shipping)

The $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Noctilux 0.95 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Noctilux 0.95 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Noctilux 0.95 if ($loc == 'AT')

{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Noctilux 0.95 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Leica Noctilux 0.95 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Leica Noctilux 0.95 is the fastest, best and most expensive über-fast lens. The lens costs you $10,495.00 (amazon US)

I didn’t find any review about the Leica Nocitlux f/0.95 used in combination with a MicroFourThirds camera. Only some image samples from the Panaosnic GF1+Leica Noctilux 0.95 on flickr.

If you tested the lens on a MicroFourThirds camera please send me your link! Thanks!
