If you are looking for a very high-quality and very fast lens (and you have a lot of money to spend) than you should take a close look on the Konica 50mm f/1.2 lens! I found some image samples of the lens used on a Panasonic G1 here: yotarouyokosuka.com Image samples on Leica cameras are available here on < a href="http://plaza.rakuten.co.jp/utsurundesu/20015" target="_blank">Rakuten and Stephen Lee
A small review is available here: portretteur.nl. He also made a comparison with the Canon FD 50mm f/1.2 lens. A little bit of lens porn on Flickr and here

Dear readers, last week we told you that Olympus will launch at least 4 new MicroFourThirds lenses (That rumor came from very good sources).
Now we have a small update (from a different source):
The two primes should be the 12mm f/2.8 and a 50mm (f/2.0??)
The two zooms should be the 40-150mm and 70-300mm.
In the meanwhile two new Olympus patents do discloses the aperture of the 40-150mm lens + a completely new 30mm-150mm lens:
- Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm F3.5-4.5
- Zuiko Digital ED 30-150mm F3.3-4.2
We are now only two months from Photokina and I expect and increase of rumors and news. I can’t watch all forums and websites alone. That’s why I ask you for a little help! If you find some interesting news and rumors feel free to share it on 43rumors!
Here a little how-to:
How to share rumors and news:
Every little piece of rumor helps us to get closer to the real “picture”. You can keep yourself anonymous by sending us a message using the contact form on the right sidebar. Avoid giving me your name and email adress. Just send me the message. You can also contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Only myself will read those emails. I suggest you to create some kind of fake email account so that I can answer you back! Please don’t expect me to post your rumors before I have checked it with other sources. If I would post every rumor I do receive everyone here would get confused
Some tips on how to send anonymous messages and images comes form our friend from Nikonrumors:
(just replace [at] with @ and [dot] with .) by using one of those free services:
Anonymous image hosting (upload an image and just email me the link):
By the way, I don’t know if I will be at Photokina. I need a new surgery because of the broken ligament
Thanks all! We will certainly have some exciting time on 43rumors
