New handmade Sonnetar 25mm f/1.1 for Pentax Q mount.

I love the creativity of Mr. Miyazaki! He created all sorts of fantastic handmade lenses especially for the Leica M-mount. Like the famous and incredible small . And now he created an amazing Sonnetar 25mm f/1.1 for Pentax Q mount! It’s the fastest lens for Q mount and I am sure it is a top performer too!

You can get the lens right now on . I really like these one man creations and I hope he will make some more lenses for other mirrorless systems too.

Thanks Jeremy for sending me this!

First two X PRO 1 cameras for sale in Europe

Don’t even ask me how that is possible. But an italian TOP ebay reseller claims to have two new X PRO 1 cameras in Stock (). You have to pay an extra 150 Euro for it but they claim that it will ship within three days. I read and re-read the full auction description and it really says it ships right now (no preorder). So if you cannot wait until late March to get the hands on the camera than this might be your chance. Of course if you live in Japan you can find it in Stock at Amazon (Click here).

New Fuji X PRO 1 ISO samples (+ Adorama notification and crazy belgium price)

The french website Focus Numerique (Click here) posted his first short X PRO 1 ISO test. Keep in mind that they used a pre-production camera with non finalized firmware. The conclusion from the reviewer is that up to ISO 1.600 noise is almost invisible. At 3.200 ISO grain is very fine and there is a just a little color noise. A larger chromatic noise is only visible starting from 12.800 ISO. Focus Numerique writes that they are truly impressed by that result!

A couple of days ago another french website Zone Numérique (Click here) said the price for the Fuji X PRO 1 body would be 1590 Euro. Now a Belgium store (Click here) is causing me a light heart attack by taking preorders at 1850 Euro! Hope this is not the real final price! Other preorder options are actually asking you for ZERO money while waiting for the final price info: Expansys USA (Click here), Expansys Canada (Click here), Henrys Canada (Click here) .

And after Amazon US (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here) als Adorama (Click here) is offering a pure notification service.
