Triple Olympus 25mm f/1.8 lens review.

The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 25 mm f/1.8 complements their offer nicely, being a very interesting alternative to both the Panasonic 1.7/20 and the more expensive Leica 1.4/25.

Camerastuffreview writes:

Already at full opening, the sharpness is high from the corner to corner. You don’t often find that with bright lenses. On the Olympus website, the Olympus 25 mm f/1.8 is praised as an indispensable lens. For photographers with a preference for an affordable, compact, light and qualitatively high standard lens, Olympus is right. The only disadvantage that I can think of was that the lens is not extra well sealed against dust and splash water

A few thoughts about the Olympus 25/1.8 by Duncan Martin.

Time will tell if the Olympus 25 has any negative aspects which bite me in the backside, but so far I’m feeling positive.

(FT4) Panasonic 150mm f/2.8 to be sold end of 2014.


Two sources confirmed the Panasonic 150mm f/2.8 lens will be releases at Photokina in September. And a new source actually told me a small bit on the lens: There was a slight problem with the production of the lens that Panasonic had to solve. That’s why it’s coming a bit later than expected.

Here is the picture of the prototype lens:

New Android application for the Panasonic GH3 / GH4 by Raymond Bakker


Work in progress fullscreen #liveview Android application for the Panasonic #GH3 / #GH4.

Raymond Bakker contacted me to share a cool news:

I’m working on an application that allows fullscreen liveview on Android for the Panasonic GH3 / GH4. I’m also looking at tackling livestreaming next, a feature the cameras should really have in my opinion. Check out the photo of the work in progress application. https://twitter.com/Raymond_Bakker/status/465600777470640128. Maybe you can feature it as I am sure many are waiting on these functionalities.

Good Work Raymond!
