Canon G1 X is in Stock (will it sell?)

Canon first attempt to counterattack the mirrorless system cameras is the G1 X. And it’s now in Stock for the first time at Adorama US (Click here). Our friends at Photorumors also found the first unpacking celebration pictures at Rust.se (Click here). And Trustedreviews (Click here) tested the G1 X: “The advantages of this larger sensor are immediately clear to overall image quality, with the G1 X offering class-leading performance in this respect. However, in other areas the G1 X lets itself down somewhat with sluggish operation and niggly performance issues. Image quality purists may well be willing to forgive these flaws, however anyone in the market for a snappy advanced compact with quickfire operation may well be slightly disappointed“.

I don’t think the Canon G1 X is the right camera to compete with mirrorless sytem camera.s But I guess that Canon is juts tasting the terrain before the real big deal!

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!

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).
