    With an eye towards doing something fun for the current members and attracting some new ones as well, it's my pleasure to announce a Mitakon Speedmaster 25mm f/0.95 lens giveaway!

    Screen Shot 2015-09-13 at 6.11.18 PM.

    The Mitakon is a newly announced, 25mm f/0.95 lens for our Micro Four Thirds system. What makes it particularly exciting is that it is extremely compact and light (230g) for such a fast lens.


    To enter, all you have to do is post a photo in this discussion thread taken by you during the months of September or October 2015 with a Micro Four Thirds camera and like our page on Facebook.

    Link to our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/mu43com

    You can post here and like our Facebook page any time before 11:59 PM GMT on October 31, 2015.


    Additional conditions:

    1) You must be 18 years of age or older and reside in a place where this sort of sweepstakes is not prohibited by law to participate. The winner will be responsible for any customs duties incurred on receipt of the lens.

    2) You may only post once in this thread.

    You can go back and edit that post as many times as you like, but making a second post to comment, etc, will disqualify you from the sweepstakes. The reason for this is that winners will be randomly selected based on post number in the thread, and extra posts would give you extra chances to win.

    On November 1st, I will randomly select a winner. The winner will have 48 hours to respond to notification via both forum private message and the email on file. If there is no response, I will randomly select another winner. The lens will be shipped to the winner as soon as it becomes available (estimated availability from manufacturer is given as late October).

    To post a photo in this thread:
    • Scroll to the bottom of the page where it says "Write your reply..."
    • Type your message in that box
    • Click the "Upload a Photo" button
    • Select the image on your computer/device and click "Open"
    • Click the "Click Here to Insert Image Into Post" button
    • Click the "Post Reply" button
    Alternatively you can post an image using BBcode as explained in this guide.

    Good luck, and don't forget to like our Facebook page!

    Someone who doesn't use Facebook will surely ask whether the Facebook like is an absolute requirement to enter the giveaway. I'm sorry to say it is. Posts about not entering due to this requirement will be deleted in order to keep the thread tidy.

    Good luck all, it looks like this is going to be a great little lens :thumbsup:.

    Here's a shot of the Canyon Creek Complex wild fire in Eastern Oregon; this fire has destroyed over 40 homes, and covers about 200 square miles. Too bad the big dipper couldn't help with an aerial water drop. Taken wide open for 2.5 seconds with the 12-40 on my E-M1, it's not the best shot from a technical standpoint but I like it. P9011208. .

    Well I'm a fan of the 25mm lenses for m43 unfortunately my two are CCTV lenses - not native ones.
    This photo was taken just by Charing Cross station in London last Friday.
    The person in the photo has promised to open her eyes if I win the lens ;-)
    Good luck everybody!

    Trying to show the depth and layers of the forest that never quite seems to come across in my photos. Olympus 4/3 11-22 on my GX7.

    I'm super curious about that Mitakon! Seems like it will be a great lens for the system.
