LensRentals Compares 6 Fast 40’s

LensRentals compared their 40mm range of m43 lenses and came up with some surprising results. The Voigtlander 42.5mm f/0.95 was a great performer that sharpened up very quickly as it was stopped down, while the Panasonic Leica DG Macro Elmarit 45mm f/2.8 showed some worrisome sample variation, which led to disappointing results. I was surprised to see […]

Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 50-200mm: Mirrorless is Still Smaller and Lighter

Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmar 100-400mm f/4-6.3 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. vs DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 POWER O.I.S.

Richard compares the Leica DG 100-400mm f/4-6.4 Leica DG and 200mm f/2.8 Review with both 1.4x TC and 2.0x TC, with some surprising results. I have always personally felt these lenses are pretty closely matched, but the Leica DG 200mm f/2.8 is just an outstanding all-around performer.

Olympus M. Zuiko ED Digital 45mm f/1.2 Pro vs Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm 1.2 and Roundup

The Olympus M. Zuiko ED Digital 45mm f/1.2 Pro is an amazing value by any standard and it compares quite well to the Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 for a few hundred dollars less.
