A couple of days ago I posted the images of the GH2 with the massive Kodak Ektar lens (Click here to read the article). I thought this would be the biggest lens ever used by a MFT camera. But Esben Garn proved me wrong by sending these pictures of his GH2 with 100x lens broadcast lens! Massive combo :)

UPDATE: The lens costs over $200,000 at BHphoto (Click here)!!!

It is true, Lens Turbo coming for MFT the second half of the year.

Share

So it’s real! Mitakon is now selling their first Lens Turbo Adapter with 0.72x Focal Reduce. It works exactly like the Speed Booster adapter from metabones but it costs a lot less. Plenty of Lens Turbo auctions for NEX can be found here on eBay. The official press release can be read at Mitakon’s website.

I asked Mitakon if and when they will make adapters for the MFT system. They told me they will release them the second half of this year! I still have no info about the supported lens mounts. But it’s great to have different options and a cheaper alternative.

P.S.: To automatically get notified when new Lens Turbo will be for sale on eBay just save this search in your Slidoo account.

Olympus patent discloses new 3D camera and lens.

Share

You still remember the huge 3D advertising campaigns? They are now almost gone. We even had a 12.5mm f/12 Micro Four Thirds 3D lens from Panasonic but after it nothing new camera for the MFT system. But at least on “patent-paper” research and development is continuing and Egami (translation here) spotted that new Olympus 3D lens and camera patent. The lens design of the 25mm f/2.8 and 24-41mm f/4.5-5.6 3D lens is made for Four Thirds sensor camera. But I really doubt we will see these lenses for real any time soon…don’t you think?
