(FT1) Panasonic GF2 on google


One of our readers sent a screenshot from a google search result that shows a Panasonic GF2 Amazon advertising. The reader reported that when he clicked on the link he landed on the following GF1 Amazon page. Maybe Amazon is just cheating us with their advertising :(

We from 43rumors heard from our sources that Panasonic is working on an ultracompact GF model but we have no confirmation yet that such a model will be announced at Photokina. What we know for sure is that Panasonic has postponed the GH2 announcement on September 21th.

Voigtländer news:
– According to Photoscala Voigtländer future lenses could have electrical contacts!
Luminous Landscape: “I would expect many of their other excellent and reasonably priced lenses to become available in M4/3 mount in the days ahead. This is a major boost for the format.”

UPDATED: COSINA CO., Ltd. Joins the Micro Four Thirds System Standard Group!

Now it is official. Olympus announced that Cosina will join the Micro Four Thirds group! And Cosina posted the lens news on their website

UPDATE: I was told that the lens has a better optical quality than the old and expensive C-mount Schneider 25mm f/0.95 (which costs used over $900 at eBay…used!)

P.S.: Hood is included.

The new Voigtländer 25mm f/0.95 for MicroFourThirds has been announced!

Click on picture to enlarge!

Today Voitgländer will announce the production of new lenses for the MicroFourThirds system!
The first lens to be unveiled is the new Nokton 25mm f/0.95 lens. This lens has been designed for MFT and you don’t need to use any adapter! The Lens is manual only (no autofocus). Expected price $1000 and availabilty by October/November.

The image quality is reported to be on a very high level. The only comparable lenses to date are the old C-mount lenses like the Schneider 25mm f/0.95 (which costs over $900 at eBay). There are also two more 25mm f/0.95 lenses like the Navitar and Angenieux (again C-mount lenses). But those are not designed for MFT and you need an MFT adapter. They are also a little bit more expensive than the Nokton (and the Nokton is new!).

We hope to learn more about the Voigtländer-MicroFourThirds future strategy as soon as possible!

If the image quality is on top will you buy that lens?
