Is that a real 55mm F/1.0 lens with original MicroFourThirds mount?

I just received an email from one of our readers which found that lens on ebay. The description of the owner says: “This lens is 55mm f/1.0~f/11 , was manufactory in Japan by Kowa. Lens rework on Panasonic Lumix G1 GF1 GH1 or Olympus E-P1 E-P2.“. The lens fits on a MicroFourThirds camera without any adapter!

(P.S: The lens is currently in auction)

UPDATED with one more review: E-P2 review at CameraLabs and Focus Numerique (and two new E-PL1 previews)

One of my favorite websites tested the Olympus E-P2. Click here to read the whole review made by CameraLabs! The most interesting part to me is when they talk about the E-P2 versus the new E-PL1: “There’s simply no getting away from the fact the E-PL1 includes the most important aspects of the E-P2 at a lower price and throws a flash in too.

One more E-P2 review has been posted by Focus Numerique (click here to read the google english translation)

UPDATE: One more review has been posted by digitalcamerareview.com.

E-PL1 previews:

Panasonic basic plans for 2010…a little to basic :)

At a convention in Munich Panasonic “unveiled” their 2010 plan for the G-System. Photographyblog knows the three key points of the “plan”:
- Expand Lineup
- Pursue Easy Operation
- Expand Lens Lineup

That’s kind of a plan! :)

(FT4) The competition is striking back: Samsung and Sony ready to launch new mirrorless cameras!

Just a small update about the MicroFourThirds competition. It seems that Sony is going to announce two or more mirrorless cameras on PMA (click here to read the specs on SonyAlphaRumors). Samsung is also going to announce a cheaper NX camera (source: k-rumors.com).

What’s common with the the two rumors is that it seems that both companies will present very compact cameras (like the Pen-series or Panasonic GF1).

Interesting: Canon and Nikon should not unveil any mirrorless camera soon…
