That is probably one of the most funny new lens announcements ever. We have new lenses from “Dog Shits Optics” :)
On their website they say the lenses based on the Vintage 58mm f/2.0 classic 1960’s Zeiss optical design (here on eBay). You can buy them in almost any mount you want, also four Micro Four Thirds and for Four Thirds. The mount will be modified after your purchase. Check out for more info at Etsy.com.
M43photo.blogspot.jp made this video to compare the GH3 ETC vs non-ETC video quality and his conclusion is: “The ETC mode is a very useful feature, but it is best used at low ISO. At higher ISO, the video quality will suffer.”
Ming Thein posted the full GH3 review and ends his tests by saying: “I think the problem with GH3 is that it feels far too much like a piece of consumer electronics, and not enough like a camera. It really doesn’t feel like there was any photographer input during the development process, or the photographers who were involved were of the hipstagram generation and don’t remember that plenty of very responsive cameras were produced without an on-screen menu. This permeates throughout all aspects of the camera”
Ming criticizes the GH3 from a pure photographic point of view while the GH3 has been clearly made with video in mind.
Here are two new Deals and one of them is a bit surprising:
1) In Spain there is an amazing deal on the Olympus 75mm f/1.8 lens which sells for 448 Euro only at CamerasRefelex and DigitalFactory. That’s half the price what we pay at Amazon Germany! I ask my Spanish readers if these are stores we can trust and I am also curious to know if that special price can be found in other EU countries too. Thanks!
2) You can save 35 Dollar by purchasing the GH3 or the GH3 kit at Personal View. Price already includes shipping to US/CA/AU/NZ/Western Europe.
Recently Olympus launched the new body cap lens that has a constant f/8.0 aperture. Many of you argued that f/8.0 is a huge limit and a faster body cap lens should be done by Oly. And actually….Olympus already did such a compact and fast lens in the past! The Olympus PEN-W (ebay auctions here) used an extremely compact and fixed 25mm f/2.8 lens (see picture on top). This Pen Series camera was designed specifically for wide-angle photography (Source Olympus). To see how compact this lens is you can also watch that youtube video. Ok, so it’s possible…but how good is a lens like that? Lars-Göran Hedström posted a full review of the PEN-W on his blog Sculptingwithlight (Click here). Greta pics!
Now let’s see if Olympus can do a lens like that for the MFT system too!
