It’s already time for a new review post on 43rumors:

DSLRmagazine (Tranlsation here) just posted the full Olympus 75mm lens review. As you see from the charts posted on the website the lens provides an excellent performance in every aspect. The reviewer writes that the lens has indeed the fastest AF on the market. And while the lens has a very tele focal length he writes that it’s “ideal for “stolen” portraits and street shots from a distance, more discreet and the focal inadevertido standard documentary.” Bye bye privacy :)

As noted by other before the only real flaw of the lens is that the hood is not included. For 900 Euro Dollar we would have liked to see it in our box fro free.

Some new in Stock status info. The lens will arrive in Europe within the next 2-3 weeks according to Amazon Germany (Click here), on July 31th according to Amazon UK (Click here), on July 20th according to BHphoto (Click here). If you really can’t wait you can uy it right now in Asia where it is in Stock on eBay (here and here) and at Digitalrev.

Comparing the E-M5 (Sony) and G3 (Panasonic) 16 Megapixel sensors.

My friend Tyson Robicheaud (Click here) compared the Olympus E-M5 with 16 Megapixel Sony sensor with the Panasonic G3 and 16 Megapixel Panasonic sensor: “I really wanted to see how these two sensors compared to one another as I have been very impressed by the G3.” Check out his website to learn more about the test!

Meantime I remind you that on July 18th we will see the new G5 which has the same G3 sensor but a newly improved processor. Let’s hope the new GH3 (again 16 MPX?) sensor brings a major improvement in RAW quality too!

New E-M5 reviews (Imaging Resource ad Online Photographer)

This week we finally had the answer about the E-m5 sensor manufactorer. As you know i’s a Sony and you may will look to the reviews I link form now on knowing it’s not just a “re-used” Panasonic 16 Megapixel sensor. Here are the links:

Reviews:
Imaging Resource posted the full E-M5 review: “Not only does the Olympus OM-D E-M5 look great, it takes great pictures, meeting or exceeding the quality of some pretty surprising competitors. Its interface is designed with photographers in mind, with ready control dials and a smart interface, all in a very small package.”
Three first reactions at The Online Photographer.

And here are two readers E-M5 works:
Marco: “give a look to what I did: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcWds9N_hgc
 I wanted to try to test the AF speed of the OM-D with some of my regular 4/3 lenses such as 12-60, 35-100, 50-500 and 7-14. I think that it’s an interesting test to understand how the OM-D performs when using 4/3 lenses. Of course it’s not a great performance, but seeing it filmed may give confidence to doubtful users! Greeting from Rome!
Cem: “I tried my new OM-D E-M5 last night with 4th of July fireworks. It did an amazing job. I tought you may want to share it so others can see what this camera can do!

Pekka Potka’s Nokton 17.5mm review (new X zoom shipping in Europe).

Pekka Potka (Click here) posted the full Nokton 17.5mm review: “It has potential to give you visually interesting images with its own touch. It has also potential for great image quality in strictest technical meaning. But it is not a good choice for a casual shooters. Street photography and moody images in low light are its own territory.

To get the lens check eBay (Click here).

P.S.: The Panasonic 12-35mm X lens is now shipping in Europe. In Stock for example at Fotomundus (Germany).
