New digital body for M lenses...


#1
Hope this title won't get too many heart attacks....

Anyway, most people would probably have guessed which body is going to be...

From the initial design, it looks really very promising. 18mm rear flange distance!

From the look of it, even those C mount lenses with larger diameter seems to be able to mount on it.

M mount ... 27.80mm

M4/3 ... 20mm
Samsung NX10 ... 25.5mm
Sony NEX ... 18mm

Going to be an exciting second half of the year.... :)

no heart attacks, only heartaches without news from nikon/canon/voigtlander/ZI coming up with a DRF to compete against Leica. I got myself a m4/3 so I was able to use my m lenses while waiting for my m9 and now it just shoots videos :) other than the rd-1 and m8, I can't c any other cams can matchup to the shooting experience of the m9

I thought these cameras were EVIL, not RF cameras.

Really happy with my evil granddaddy panny G1 with Nokton 35, now waiting for my real digital M RF to come. Hopefully can de-throne it and become my new goto tool to capture more great moments with my sunshine.:)

I'll be waiting for the next PEN and the rumored GF2 with the built in range-finder positioned EVF. Yes, I've been treating my E-P2 as a poor man's M9 :)

Want to get a ~50mm lens? Get the VC 25mm skopar or the faster 28mm f2 ultron.

100mm telephoto? Get the VC 50mm f1.5 or the faster f1.1.

I'm still saving for the wider end 12mm f5.6. After that, I'll stop :D
