I was looking on vimeo and youtube for some nice new video samples to post within my next “a little bit of everything” article. And I found this, the most boring test video (on the E-M5) ever made. I haven’t learned anything from the video and you?
EU Nokton deal:
We Europeans can’t enjoy many deals like in US but Le Petit Boutique on eBay France (Click here) is selling the Nokton 17-5mm f/0.95 with a huge 160 Euro discount…for Europeans only :)
GF5 and 14-24mm X lens reviews:
Full Panasonic GF5 review at ePhotozine: “The Panasonic Lumix GF5 is a worthwhile upgrade, resolving a number of our original complaints about the GF3, and the addition of improved effects, menus systems, and built in scene modes with guides for beginners are a useful addition for beginners. The screen looks great and the camera feels better than ever with an improved rubber grip and body styling. The GF5 is certainly an appealing camera, particularly with improved noise performance in comparison to the predecessor”

Lenstip posted the full 14-42mm X lens review: “The results of our test show that, when it comes to the optics, we deal here with a typical ‘kit’ lens which doesn’t stand out against the rest of contemporary devices of this type which are added at almost no charge to the reflex and mirrorless cameras of its rivals. The quality is something that makes the Panasonic stick out, though. It is a device produced in Japan, made of solid components with a metal mount.”
