DxOmark (Click here) tested the GF3 sensors: “We liked the GF3’s low-light ISO performance, its dimensions, and its price. This said, we were less enchanted by its ISO range, which we found limited its low-ISO scores in the Portrait and Landscape categories. (Its limited ISO also resulted in lower scores for Dynamic Range.)“. GF3 shop links: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay.
New Panasonic GX1 review at Cnet Asia (Click here): “We have said before that the GX1 is what the GF3 should have been. Although, we wonder why they stuck with a seemingly industrial design and didn’t opt for something similar to the or the Fujifilm FinePix X10, which seems to be the trend these days“.

Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital ED 12mm f/2 Review at Photographyblog (Click here): “The lens is an excellent choice for landscapes, architecture and interiors too; as long as you make sure its distortion is taken care of, either in-camera or at the raw conversion stage.” Price check at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay.
The G3 is the mirrorless camera of the year at Photographyblog (Click here): “For us, the new G3 offers the best balance between the even tinier GF2, the slightly better handling G2, and the videographer-friendly GH2, adding the best still image quality of all G-series cameras, and it’s also a cheaper and for many users simply a better alternative to a full-fledged DSLR. Essential!”
Photographyblog (Click here) posted a full Olympus 45mm f/1.8 review. The lens gets highly recommended: “the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 represents excellent value for money to anyone on the lookout for a fast short telephoto lens for their Micro Four Thirds camera.”

Photoxels (Click here) tested the Panasonic GF3 with 14-42mm X lens: “The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 [GF3X] is a real winner as an alternative to the traditional entry-level DSLR. You’ll find a camera that is easy to use for a point-and-shoot user with performance and image quality that rival the traditional entry-level DSLRs. Highly Recommended.”

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 review at Digitaljournalofphotography (Click here): “In camera JPEGs and video are very clean, but noise reduction is being applied quite heavily when compared to RAW files. And Panasonic still has a way to go with colour rendition, it’s not up to that of the rival Olympus Pens“.

Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 review at Camerastuffreview (Click here): “The Panasonic 14 mm 2.5 doesn’t show signs of glare or ghosting and chromatic aberration is absent (after in-camera correction). The resolution shown by the Panasonic 14 mm 2.5 is, definitely in the center, but for a wide angle lens certainly also at the edges, very high“.
