What I want from Olympus (Kirk Tuck and Bill Beebe wishlist)

As we all noticed Olympus didn’t launch any FourThirds camera since a very long time. Maybe that’s why Kirk Tuck and Bill Beebe tought it would be nice to help Olympus a little bit by expressing their own wishlist :)

Read the wishlist from Kirk Tuck and the wishlist from Bill Beebe!

Thanks noisycamera !

Reminder: Tomorrow launch of the new Noktor 50mm f/0.95 for MicroFourThirds!

The HyperPrime 50mm f/0.95


On March 1 Noktor will launch the fastest Lens for Micro 4/3rds.

Do not confuse this lens with the Leica Noctilux or Voigtländer Nokton.

Keep following us. We will update you with every info we will receive about the lens!

This is what we know for now about the lens:
With a maximum aperture of F/0.95, the Noktor Hyperprime is the fastest lens designed for Micro Four Thirds cameras. At open aperture, the lens renders pictures and video with extreme shallow depth of field for a unique aesthetic.

In low-light photography and cinematography, the lens exceeds the perception of the human eye. From nightscapes to campfires, now you can shoot in situations that are often impossible to capture with a normal lens.
