(FT4) Schneider Kreuznach MFT lenses coming late 2014. To be displayed at Photokina.

I got some more confirmation that Schneider will (finally!) release the new MFT lenses this summer. The final production version lenses will be displayed at Photokina in September. The lens release have been delayed because of production capability issues. Schneider wanted to first produce enough of their highly requested Cine lenses. The three new MFT lenses are confirmed to have AF support. What I don’t know if in the meantime Schneider changes some of the originally unveiled lens specs which are 14mm f/2.0, 30mm f/1.4 and the Macro 60mm f/2.4.

Let’s see…

Current Schneider lenses (non MFT mount):
Xenon 16mm f/1.2 (Click here to see on eBay).
Xenon 25mm f/0.95 (Click here to see on eBay).
Curtagon 35mm f/2.8 (Click here to see on eBay).
Componon 50mm f/1.4 (Click here to see on eBay).

First GH4 review by ePhotozine: “dream camera”. Five in Stock now at Kenmore!

The Gh4 is now in Stock and shipping at KenmoreCamera via eBay US (Click here).

And ePhotozine posted the first full GH4 review and calls it a “dream camera”:

The Panasonic Lumix GH4 introduces a completely new, cutting edge technology, namely 4K video recording. This is at a price point less than the RRP of the previous model, and is priced without it seeming like it’s been marked up at all, despite being one of the first cameras to offer 4K as well as stills photography.
This would make an excellent choice for those that want high image quality, but want a DSLR styled camera, with the improved (electronic) viewfinder making the camera enjoyable to use in a variety of conditions.
The Panasonic Lumix GH4 is a dream camera for the videographer and photographer alike.

Focus on stills: Panasonic GH4 image samples and tests.

Image courtesy: Imaging Resource

We talked a lot about the GH4 amazing 4K video quality. But now let’s focus on the brand new stills test:
Imaging Resource added the GH4 to their comparometer.
Photograhyblog posted a set of full size image samples and a short ISO test.
ePhotozine also posted image samples, ISO samples and White balance test. You can also download the RAW files.

Would be nice to hear your opinion about the GH4 stills quality. As far as I can tell there is small improvement over the GH3 and also a different kind of handling noise.
