HyperPrime 50mm f/0.95 lens for micro 4/3s cams

You probably remember Solomon Chase. If not, check this video out. You do remember now, right? 🙂

Solomon is now selling the new NOKTOR lenses in the US. These are new, Japanese, ultra-fast lenses designed for the micro four thirds cameras, like the Panasonic GH1 and GF1. My guess is that they are probably not the sharpest lenses around, however by the moment the camera resizes down to 1080p, and if you actually need lots of shallow DoF, or to be able to see better in the dark, they do their job.

Funnily enough, the Canon 310XL – a cheap compact Super-8 camera had a 1.0 zoom(!) lens back in 1975-1983. Nowadays, the whole camera can be bought second-hand for about $20.
