Impress Watch reports that Cosina displays the new 42.5mm/f0.95 lens:

As always, all texts are in Japanese, but you can click any thumbnails in the article to enlarge. Scroll down to see a couple of cut-model of Nokton and Heliar.

Hope you enjoy it!

CORRECTION REQUESTED:
My bad! The title should read "CP+", not "PC+"!

Thanks for this Akira!
The more I let the smaller format sink in the more convinced I am that the m43 is the sweet spot wrt. IQ and system bulk.

You are welcome, sten! I agree with you. I wish Panasonic will catch up with Olympus in terms of the dynamic range.

m43 is a great idea, that is unfortunately executed by two companies who have their heads in their asses.

Panasonic uses sensors that are about 5 years behind the times, and Olympus is happy to settle for Sony's table scraps, because they blew all their money on coke and hookers.

The system will never be able to compete with NEX IQ, and it's not smaller if you don't mind using adapted lenses, especially if you have a m43 body with an attached EVF.

Olympus m43 has a great double exposure system though.

That is exactly what I thought, but was surprised to see the comparison of the OMD EM5 vs the nex6 and nex 7 in the mansurov review

the m43 systems is getting me very interested, contrary to what we see on Nikon's DX, M43 has constant attention from companies developing lenses and bodies
