Lenses http://personal-view.com/talks/categories/lenses/feed.rss Mon, 17 Feb 20 10:21:06 +0000 Lenses en-CA Limited-edition Summicron M Leica lenses http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/23540/limited-edition-summicron-m-leica-lenses Mon, 17 Feb 2020 08:10:05 +0000 Vitaliy_Kiselev 23540@/talks/discussions image

Leica Camera is delighted to present three new lenses for the Leica M-System: the silver anodised APO-Summicron-M 75 f/2 ASPH. as well as two limited editions, the Summicron-M 28 f/2 ASPH. and APO-Summicron-M 90 f/2 ASPH. which both come in an olive-green ‘Safari’ finish. The technical specifications of the three new lenses are identical to those of their serially produced counterparts.

The APO-Summicron-M 75 f/2 ASPH. is known as one of the most high-performing lenses for the Leica M-System and is particularly suitable for portrait photography. The new lens variation features an anodised finish and in contrast to the black-paint variant, the feet markings on the distance scale as well as the focal length engravings are inlaid in red, while all other engravings feature black inlays, emphasising the sophisticated design of the Leica M.

Leica is also releasing two limited editions, the Summicron-M 28 f/2 ASPH. and APO-Summicron-M 90 f/2 ASPH. with a special, olive-green paint finish. Both ‘Safari’-edition lenses feature red-inlaid feet markings on the distance scale and red focal length markings, while all other engravings are inlaid in white, creating a stylish juxtaposition with the olive-green lens.

The exceptionally hard-wearing, olive-green paint has a long-standing tradition at Leica. The first Leica cameras to be treated with this superior-quality enamel finish were designed for military use in 1960. Shortly after, the cameras became widely renowned as robust tools that could withstand even the most extreme conditions and what had started with the Leica M1 ‘Olive’ for the German Armed Forces went on to become an enduring success story. While the Leica M3 and M4 in olive-green were still manufactured exclusively for military use, a growing demand among private customers prompted Leica to release the first market version – the Leica R3 ‘Safari’ – in 1977. This was followed by the M6 TTL ‘Safari’ in 2000, the M8.2 ‘Safari’ in 2008, the M-P (Typ 240) ‘Safari’ of 2015 and, most recently, the M10-P Edition ‘Safari’ in 2019. Today, the olive-green cameras are highly sought-after by collectors and Leica enthusiasts alike.

Aside from the Leica Summicron-M 50 f/2, released in 2019, the new Summicron-M 28 f/2 ASPH. and APO-Summicron-M 90 f/2 ASPH. are the only M lenses to perfectly match the olive-green Leica M10-P Edition ‘Safari’, making the lenses a desirable addition to any Leica M Camera. Only 500 units will be available of the Summicron-M 28 f/2 ASPH. Edition ‘Safari’; the APO-Summicron-M 90 f/2 ASPH. Edition ‘Safari’ is limited to 250 units. You can download high-res images here; all three lenses are available from end of February.

RRP:

  • APO-Summicron-M 75 f/2 ASPH. silver anodised: £3,500
  • Summicron-M 28 f/2 ASPH. Edition ‘Safari’: £3,800
  • APO-Summicron-M 90 f/2 ASPH. Edition ‘Safari’: £4,000

High-performance standard zoom lens

Effective placement of special lenses in the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-45mm F4.0 PRO lens allow for the world’s most compact, lightweight design covering a focal length from wide angle 24mm to telephoto 90mm (35mm equivalent). A small and lightweight focusing lens enables high-speed, precise AF for any subject. The lens features a dust-, splash- and freezeproof construction with sealing in 9 places to keep out dust and rain, providing peace of mind when shooting on the go.

Superb macro capabilities

Enjoy intense macro shooting with a maximum magnification of 0.25x (0.5x 35mm equivalent) across the entire zoom range. The closest focusing distance is 12 cm at the wide-angle end, and 23 cm at the telephoto end, delivering a wide range of macro shooting effects such as wide-angle macro shots that emphasize a sense of perspective by capturing vast backgrounds, and telephoto macro shots for more significant background defocusing effects. Diverse macro effects are possible, such as Focus Stacking , which generates a single image on the camera with a large depths of field in focus from the foreground to the background.

Fixed aperture value across the entire zoom range

Effective placement of aspherical lenses and ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating – which provides clear depictive performance – drastically reduces aberrations, ghosts, and flares for sharp, high-definition image quality. Suppressing loss of light at the edges of images makes it possible to obtain bright, clear depictive performance up to the very edges. Because the aperture value is fixed across the entire focal length, it is easy to control the exposure when zooming and recording video.

28mm T2.2 1.8X Vazen Anamorphic Lens for m43 http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/23531/28mm-t2.2-1.8x-vazen-anamorphic-lens-for-m43 Fri, 14 Feb 2020 23:37:59 +0000 Vitaliy_Kiselev 23531@/talks/discussions image

Vazen, a new Chinese cinema lens brand, has announced the pricing and shipping availability of the Vazen 28mm t/2.2 1.8x Anamorphic Lens for Micro Four Thirds (M43) cameras. Vazen had previously launched the 40mm t/2 back in Cinegear 2019. The new 28mm is the 2nd member and the widest of their 1.8x anamorphic line-up. The whole set will contain 3 focal lengths (28mm, 40mm and 65mm) and the 65mm is expected to be out in a few months.

Unlike the 40mm, the new Vazen 28mm features a super compact and lightweight design. Weighing merely 1.59 pounds (0.72kg), it is currently the world’s lightest 1.8x anamorphic lens. Its compactness allows the lens to be used on gimbals or even handheld shooting without a rig. The lens is designed with a 77mm front filter thread for installing ND filters or diopters easily. The entire lens is built up of aluminum and the independent aperture and focus rings are incorporated with 0.8 mod cine gears.

All the Vazen 1.8x anamorphic lenses feature a front anamorphic design. It delivers a butterly smooth oval bokeh, signature blue, but not over saturated, horizontal flare and the widescreen cinematic look. The lens delivered outstanding sharpness, even at wide open, which is unmatched by other anamorphic lenses with the similar squeeze ratio. Similar to other wide anamorphic lenses, the 28mm delivers a relatively cleaner image than its 40mm counterpart and the coming 65mm is expected to have the strongest anamorphic ‘character’.

Vazen chose to adopt a much more complicated 1.8x squeeze design instead of the 1.33x as it creates a much more cinematic look. The 1.8x also produces a cinematic widescreen 2.39:1 aspect ratio to your image when capturing with 4:3 ratio sensors like Panasonic GH5 and Z-cam E2. It also works with the new 2.8k anamorphic mode on Blackmagic Pocket4k or capture open gate via an external monitor. The lens features a ultra-wide 72° horizontal field of view. The closest focusing distance is 2.7” from sensor.

PR

Panasonic is proud to introduce a new interchangeable standard zoom lens, the LUMIX S PRO 24-70mm F2.8 (S-E2470) compatible with the L-Mount system for the LUMIX S Series Full-frame Digital Single Lens Mirrorless Camera. Developed with high-quality professional performance in mind, the LUMIX S Series of cameras and lenses together achieve uncompromised photographic expression..

The LUMIX S PRO 24-70mm F2.8 (S-E2470) is a large-aperture standard zoom lens that boasts high descriptive performance across the entire zoom range. Optical performance is remarkably high, passing stringent LEICA standards.

The rugged dust- and splash-resistant* design withstands harsh conditions and ensures versatile use for landscapes, snaps and portraits with its 24-70mm focal length. The LUMIX S PRO 24-70mm F2.8 features stunningly high resolution and high contrast at each focal length point, with a filter diameter of 82 mm and an 11-blade circular aperture diaphragm. The full-range F2.8 high-speed aperture provides smooth defocus gradation from the focus peak to the neighboring area of the image to achieve a beautiful bokeh effect as well as a rich perspective.

Comprised of 18 lenses in 16 groups, three aspherical lenses and four ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lenses effectively suppresses both axial chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration of magnification. The aspherical shape of the lenses corrects astigmatism, achieving high resolving performance. Furthermore, a UHR (Ultra-High Refractive Index) lens achieves uniform image quality from the center to the edges of the image while downsizing the lens unit.

A double focus system combining linear and stepping motors achieves sensor drive at a maximum speed of 480 fps. This realizes fast, high-precision AF, ensuring the user never misses a photo opportunity. Focus clutch mechanism adoption enables instant AF/MF switching and accurate manual focusing. The LUMIX S PRO 24-70mm F2.8 also excels in video recording performance with a mechanism that suppresses focus breathing, a common problem in all interchangeable lenses designed for still image photography.

By 2020, Panasonic will design and develop 10 or more Lumix S Pro and other lenses, further expanding the S Series lens lineup. More than 45 interchangeable L-Mount lenses are or will be available from Panasonic, Leica Camera AG and Sigma, demonstrating an almost limitless spectrum of new creative possibilities.

The LUMIX S PRO 24-70mm lens will be available in October for $2199.99.

*Dust and Splash Resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this lens is subjected to direct contact with dust and water.
