Kowa wide angle MFT lenses available from Mainlinephoto

We are proud to have added to our growing range of Micro Four Thirds lenses. The Japanese made Kowa range which includes the 8.5mm and the 12mm. Lots of fun to be had with these little beauties!



Also available in Green to special order, I think all lenses should be green….


The 8.5mm 2.8 looks to be a red hot seller especially neat is the close focus of 20cm. This means that it will be a very cool wide angle for video on the GH series cameras and the Blackmagic Pocket Cine Camera. Available to order here.

Voigtlander 25mm MFT Lenses get an Update

Voigtländer has announced a highly anticipated and improved 25mm 0.95 MFT  lens  expected to land in March.

Step-less aperture control – like on the 17.5mm variant – will be possible on the new 25mm lenses.

With tack-sharp optics and that solid brass “Leica” feel, this lens just got much better for those wishing to use it for serious videography work.  Here’s a photo I took last year with the first model and my Olympus OM-D.
