Adorama is now stocking SLR Magic’s line of lenses, including the Noktor 50mm f/0.95 HyperPrime lens and the new Noktor 35mm T 0.95 HyperPrime Cine lens. There are plenty of cool Micro Four Thirds, Sony E-Mount and other lens mount options from SLR Magic.
These ridiculously fast primes could also turn out to be solid mates for the upcoming Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, along with the 12mm T/1.6 lens, which works out to roughly 36mm field of view equivalent on the Super 16 sensor of the BPCC.
Check out the full line of SLR Magic lenses here at Adorama.
The new Sony NEX-3N is now in stock and shipping. Check it out here at B&H Photo and at Adorama.
The upcoming full frame NEX-9 is rumored to accept full frame Sony Alpha lenses; however, it is supposed to do so without the use of the LA-EA3 NEX-to-Alpha converter like the Sony VG900 camcorder uses.
Sigma’s refreshed Micro Four Thirds and NEX primes, the 30mm F2.8 DN and 19mm F2.8 DN lenses, will begin shipping later in March for $199 each.
These new lenses are priced the same as their predecessors and should be solid additions to mirrorless kits – particularly the NEX versions due to the limited selection of available lenses thus far. I own the 30mm in the older version in NEX mount and have been more than happy with the performance it delivered at the $199 price point.
You can order the new, improved versions from B&H at the below links.

Hasselblad has confirmed that its new $5,000 Lunar mirrorless camera will launch next month.
The Hasselblad Lunar will be officially launched in April 2013.
We will, within a short time, launch a new and dedicated website section for the Lunar with all the information.
Recall that the Hasselblad Lunar is basically a rebadged Sony NEX-7 with Hasselblad’s cosmetic changes and a $4,000 markup. I can’t think of a good reason anyone should buy this camera, but I’m open to suggestions…
