New MFT reviews…


Let me catch up with a couple of new reviews of MFT cameras and lenses:

Nokton 25mm f/0.95:
I own this lens and I am always carrying it with me. Definitely my favorite lens! ePhotozine just posted a new review of the Nokton. Another review has been posted in German by The cheapest price I found in Europe is 810 Euro in France (Click here) and 830 Euro in Germany (Click here). As I mentioned yesterday yu can check for price drops via Slidoo :)
The newer sister lens sells for 1.010 Euro via Fotomundus (Click here).

Olympus E-M5:
James Harold posted a 24hours OMD review made while traveling across Europe. And the Crazy Comparison Returns! The $999 Olympus OM-D vs the $7995 Leica Monochrom by Steve Huff.
DOn’t forget that there are always plenty of new auctions with refurbished E-M5 at Olympusmarket (Click here).

    Fotovideo in Oslo seem to have too many 0.95`s in stock. They now sell them for 5000.- NOK, that`s about 700 €. Theoretically, if ordering from abroad, you should be able to get 25% norwegian VAT refunded. Not shure if the guys at the store are willing to be helpful with that process. Worth a try.In Norway micro 4/3 has not cought on fully. Maybe the store as ordered too many and now tey`re afraid demand is too low. Would push the price down to 550 €.


  • My favorite is the 17.5 f0.95 for which I paid full price at B&H (US $1250). I’m not jumping of happiness, but the lens is so sweet that I don’t care any more. I also carry it with me everywhere.

      Me too, it was expensive but worth every euro I paid, and like you, it’s always in my bag. Love the build quality, it’s relly a tank. But optically it’s better than the 25mm: sharper wide opened

        Interesting comment concerning the 17mm being better than the 25mm. Do you find the 17mm being about the same field of view of the human perspective (eyes)?

    Someone mentioned this shop a few days ago: . I think that’s the lowest 17.5mm price in the world – and Australian tax is included in it.

    E-M5 vs Leica Monochrome

    That Leica was so Pwned. :-)

  • I got most of Steve’s pix right but mainly because there was a 50-50 chance.

    But as I have said many times before. If photos from 3 photographers using 3 different cameras in 3 different locations (all jpg or all tiff with tweaking if the photographer thinks so). Are then compared at a set size, something reasonable maybe A4 or smaller if the photographer thinks appropriate. (or screen 1800 maximum side size). When they are presented for visual analyses the vast majority of people would not be able to identify the camera or the lens or the sensor size, in fact I dare to say no one would pick any combination. If the viewers are told the cameras types and lenses a few, a very few, will most certainly pick the differences but not many.
    Maybe start with 1 x m43 and 2 x apsc with a single shot using a native lens then with an M mount lens and an ‘other’ adapted lens, each shot at a different location.
