This is a post that contains emails from 43rumor readers. Here is the list:

1) Made a short film on the killer whales of the North Sea. Used the GH2 during gale force wind, upto 38 knots. GH2 and zuiko 12-60 and 35-100. Manual focus.
If you like it, nice to add it on your website for a break in between the rumors. The camera has some troubles since I used it, the salt wind, rain and sea water probably reached the electronic components. (but it was worth it) Here is the link. http://youtu.be/Cc2tNVrhAUA

2) I don’t know if its interesting for the gang or not but I recently shot some sample images with my G2 using the Novoflex adapter, a Canon FD 70-210/f4 and a Canon Extender FD 2x-B. You can find the sample under http://der-eigene-blickwinkel.blogspot.com/2011/11/samples-with-canon-fd-70-210f4-on.html

3) Fotofinlandia is THE premier photo contest in Finland. It is now organized every third year.  I have some info on it at my site. The finalists were announced today. My series of images is one of those lucky 12. Your 43rumors readers might be interested to know that this series is shot with E-P2 and D.Zuiko 50mm f/2 Macro.  I had another series among TOP 35. Same equipment. All in all there are some 8000 photographers who have right to participate. The finalists can be seen here: http://www.fotofinlandia.fi/ehdokkaat/
If you click on “KAIKKI EHDOKKAAT” you can see those 33 series (not 35) who were in semi-finals.

4) “Hi Sir, I am a member of 43rumors, I read everyday your articles, specially the Olympus ones :) because since I was a child I have been taking pictures with OM cameras and now with four thirds and micro fourthirds cameras. My dream will be working for Olympus one day :). I have submitted a picture to National Geographic taken with an Olympus E-1 and Zuiko Digital 14-54 lens. I wonder if you could publish an announcement of the picture in National Geographic taken with the OLYMPUS E-SYSTEM. Maybe people like it and can press I like it or write a comment. If I had a minimum chance to win, could you believe it? OLYMPUS in NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC! :) I really wish Michael Woodford can manage to get rid of this problem right now. I truly believe in MFT!!! It´s the future. Anyway I´ll understand if you can´t publish it.
Best wishes,
David Irisarri Vila

5) I see alot of people have been asking how the new Leica 25mm lens serves as a portrait lens. I recently took some pictures that shows how wonderful its bokeh is, and I disagree with those who says it is not a good portrait lens. Anyway, if its something that might be worth sharing, feel free to do so:)
Cheers from Japan
Here’s the link to the pics btw: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nipponbasse/sets/72157628018874014/

7) SLR Magic HyperPrime 12mm f/1.6 Test (vimeo).

    And this one, GH2 ISO 10,000 color footage http://vimeo.com/32204670

    That is some extraordinary videos and photos in 1 post!

  • I really appreciate member contribution. Thanks for these!

  • Frank

    The G2 photos of Klaus are nice, but there is an enormous dust spot on all his pics. Clean the sensor, Klaus!

  • Christian

    The first one is a good example, why we need dust and splash water protected cameras and lenses. I still carry the bulky E-3, which is mainly due to the fact, that unsealed cameras are utterly useless to me.

    Thanks Admin! Can you please send more contributions from 43rumors members in the future?

    • admin

      Yes! Will do that :)

  • Thanks for posting my video admin! If panasonic releases a weather proof GH3 and some weatherproof 2.0 and 2.8 lenses, I start to doubt if I need to keep my E5 and 2.0 zuiko’s. Panasonic micro 4/3rds is becoming more and more a very attractive system. My E5 will be for driving the zuiko 300/2.8 + Ec’s. For the rest I might swap to panasonic if your weather proof rumors become true.

    Did some tight shot testing with the Olympus 12mm f2 on an un-hacked GH2 every-which-way and w/ a Pixco .45 wide converter too.

    Can anyone recommend tutorials for a newbie GH2 owner? I’m a journalist and will be using it for video and photos but I don’t know how – yet!
