We need you! New Sonnetar POLL!


The Sonnetar 25mm f/1.1 prototype lens on the [shoplink 23565]Olympus E-PM1[/shoplink].

It is a great honour for me to write this post! As you know a couple of days ago I told you that the great and very innovative lens designer Mr. Miyazaki realized a new lens prototype for the m43 system. Yesterday his staff contacted me to ask me and in particular YOU a great favour. They are a very small team and the lenses they make like the [shoplink 29386 ebay]Leica Triplet lenses (Click here to see them on eBay)[/shoplink] are actually handmade! So they want to know if you would REALLY would buy the lens if they would take the huge effort to produce them on larger scale. They sent me a couple of images I posted here and some images samples can bee seen at KTF-turbo (Click here) and KTFdesign (Click here). This is a prototype lens so there can still be some improvements until the final production version. The lens will cost around $650 like the [shoplink 29387 ebay]Pentax Q version[/shoplink]. Please try to be honest…you really have to buy the lens if you answer yes ;)

Would you buy the Sonnetar 25mm f/1.1 lens?

My personal two cent: What I like most about the lens is the incredibly tiny size for such a fast aperture. But image quality wide open is not 100% convincing. The picture below also show the lens on the [shoplink 29074]Olympus E-M5[/shoplink]. Click on them to enlarge!
