The need for speed: Zoomatar 75mm, 180mm and 250mm….all f/1.3 !!!

While searching for some news about the new Voigtländer 25mm f/0.95 Micro Four Thirds lens I found those awesome fast and tele manual focus lenses on eBay (Click here). The Zoomatar 250mm f/1.3 pictured above is the fastest tele lens I have ever seen (Did you ever find a faster lenes at 250mm?). The lens uses a Hassellbad mount!

The lens above is the Zoomatar 180mm f/1.3. It uses the Nikon F-mount. I found only a few image samples on a taiwanese blog (blog.xuite.net) and some info at Cameraquest.

There is also a Zoomatar 75mm f/1.3 (mount is unknown to me) and I found one image of the lens used on the Panasonic G1.

Currently only the Zoomatar 180mm f/1.3 is for sale on eBay ($10.000!!!).

I didn’t find any image samples of that lens used on a Micro Four Thirds camera! Would love to see that 250mm f/1.3 on my tiny Olympus E-P1 :)

Can you find some more details about those lenses? Thanks!

Olympus 9-18mm lens for $569.46 (E-P2 and GF1 deals ongoing)

The Olympus 9-18mm lens is now in Stock for $569 at Amazon (Click here). That’s a $30 price drop since yesterday.

If you need a compact MicroFourThirds camera check the current Panasonic GF1 which now costs $670 only at Amazon (Click here) or the Olympus E-P2 + lens+ EVF deal at Amazon (Click here) for $779. Curiously the same E-P2 camera with the same lens but without EVF sells for the $20 more!!! (Click here). And if you need a cheap cam with good video quality get the GH1 for $999.

New russian Olympus E-5 review with production unit!

Olympus.ourlife.ru just posted a new E-5 review using a production unit. You can download a huge ammount of RAW files. It’s incredible how much detail Olympus was able to squeeze from the same PEN 12 Megapixel sensor. Don’t know if you can do any better than this!

The E-5 should be in Stock by late October and you can preorder the camera at Amazon US, BHphoto, Adorama and Warehouseexpress.
