UPDATED -> New 3D Lens for your MicroFourThirds camera

The LOREO 3D Lens

UPDATE: The only place I found where you can buy Loreo lenses is on Ebay (click here)

I was told that Loreo will soon have their Loreo 3D lens available for MicroFourThirds cameras!
UPDATE: The 3D Lens for FourThirds mount is already available since months.

Text from their website: “The new subframe 3D Lens in a Cap 9005 (patent pending), in development since 2007, is a sports and portrait 3D lens. The lens has a focal length of 40mm and a stereo base of (interocular distance) of 90mm.” … “On Olympus and Panasonic Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds digital SLR cameras, the 2:1 FOV crop factor brings the effective focal length to 80mm on the vertical side of the image frame, making it a telephoto 3D lens. With a pair of 1.45x converters, the effective focal length on 4:3 format units becomes 116mm. The wide image pitch (90mm) allows excellent 3D photographs to be taken from 5 meters or more away.

The 3D effect: “The 3D effect is achieved by transposing two images through a matched pair of focusing lenses and a reflector housing with four mirrors. Beam splitters designed in the 1960s for SLR cameras have a pronounced keystone effect. The new 3D Lens in a Cap 9005 eliminates the keystone effect. It is a self-contained, integrated mirror assembly and lens system that mounts directly onto the camera body and does not need any supporting lens. This means that it does not work with SLRs which do not have interchangeable lenses, such as the Olympus E10, E20 series of digital cameras.

The 3D Lens in a Cap 9005 takes full advantage of the accurate viewing, exposure control and wide range of shutter speeds that SLRs possess. Excellent print and digital 3D images can be produced with this lightweight 3D Lens. Processed 3D prints are ready for viewing with Loreo Deluxe or Lite 3D Viewers. They can also be viewed on computer screens with a Loreo Pixi 3D Viewer.
