(FT5) Noktor to make custom lens design for MicroFourThirds….and even faster lenses!!!

Share

Ok that’s unfair. I admit that I received the “rumor” directly from Noktor :) So I guess I could call that “news” and not “rumor”. What did they tell us? “we now have a totally custom lens design in the works (not based on existing design like the Goyo lens)” and “It will be sharper and faster than our current F0.95 lens (but priced higher)“. They didn’t tell us how fast they will make the lens. The only ultra fast lenses I know (because I found them on eeBay) are the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

Noktor is following 43rumors so may you could tell them what kind of lens you need!

The Atlanta rumor could be true? The new “E-system” is coming at Photokina.

Few days ago we posted the email we received from one of our readers. He said that he saw the new Olympus camera (the modular camera) in Atlanta. It is a new source that’s why I posted the news with a low value (FT2= 20-40% chance the rumor could be true).

But I was quiet surprised to see that one of my trusted sources sent me following email:
“I have a good reason the new camera would be seen in Atlanta. The gy who does all the training powerpoints for Olympus lives in Atlanta, and would be hanging out with the Japanese gentleman (probably Akira Watanabe) taking sample photos for use in his technical training powerpoints. The Olympus E-3 could have been spotted in a similar manner back in 2007, and I know this for a fact. ;)

And a second (very good source) confirmed that few people is testing the new “E-system” camera in the field. So keep your eyes open! :)

P.S.: Click here ot read the rumor posted few days ago.

Panasonic G2 available in all worldwide amazon stores (The G10 is only available on eBay). It takes third party batteries?

All amazon stores do have the camera in Stock:
Amazon Deutschland / Amazon UK / Amazon France / Amazon US / Amazon Japan

The G10 is still out of stock and only available here: $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

One of our readers sent us follwoing message:
It seems that Panasonic G2 doesn’t bother is battery genuine or not!
It accepts anything you feed into battery compartment, any object that supplies proper voltage and has proper size..
Ordinary serial G2 specimen just bought in ordinary Russian shop was used for tests. It takes without questions three types of cheap China replace batteries, taken from three different sources. All three batteries were rejected by G1 with v.1.5.firmware.
It’s really strange that none of numerous pre-reviews ever mentioned this most useful feature of G2

One moe thing: New G2 image smaples have been posted at Whatdigitalcamera, Fotopolis and Pixinfo.

{?>Samsung NX-10 and the Canon T2i

1) The NEX images do have slightly less noise than the smaller sensored Olympus E-PL1 but the images do not have much more detail
2) Olympus jpeg engine works better than the Sony engine
3) Very bad handling of the NEX

Overall score:
Nex5 64%
E-PL1 69%
