(FT5) STUNNING !!!! Voigtlander will soon announce the new 29mm f/0.8 Micro Four Thirds lens!


Folks this is simply stunning! This news alone may keep the Micro Four Thirds system alive and kicking :)

Nokishita reports that Voigtlander-Cosina will soon announce the new SUPER NOKTON 29mm f/0.8 Aspherical Micro Four Thirds lens! As far as I can recall this would be the fastest production photography lens of the world beating the (low quality) Ibelux f/0,85. The only faster lenses are actually made for X-ray or other industrial use (see them on ebay).

Knowing Voigtlander I am sure this lens will offer a surprisingly decent image quality at max aperture. Can’t wait to see how big this lens is too! Stay tune on 43rumors for more info soon!

ThePhoBlographer: A Big Misstep For Micro Four Thirds: Panasonic G100 Review


The Phoblographer:

There’s no denying that Panasonic has been focusing heavily on its newer Full-Frame Lumix platform than its Micro Four Thirds offerings over the last couple of years. The company’s push into the Full-Frame arena with the L Mount alliance has seen the M4/3 platform pushed out of the limelight. However, a new M4/3 camera did hit the streets this year. The Panasonic G100 is somewhat of an oddball camera that’s designed to capture the hearts of videographers and hybrid content creators. Does it have what it takes to compete with other cameras in its price range? Find out as we offer our thoughts about it.
