Panasonic GF3 Hands-on Review by Digitalrev.

Pocket-Lint (Click here) tested the GF3: “Whilst the GF3 might not include everything we would have put on our wish list, for those making the step up from a point and shoot camera for the first time, this GF series Lumix is its most accessible yet. Plus, for any new users what it doesn’t offer in comparison to its predecessors won’t be missed”.

Cnet Asia (Click here) tested the new Panasonic G3: “Panasonic has impressed us with the G3’s sleek downsized chassis, but the touchscreen interface could have been more responsive“…”Though the G3 does have its quirks, the new camera offers good image quality and improved noise performance at higher ISO settings.

The polish website with the so complicated name “Optyczne” (Click here) posted their G3 review: “After the test we have mixed feelings. On one hand, the camera offers very good image quality and low noise over a wide range of sensitivity, on the other hand, however, falls quite poorly in terms of tonal range. (google translation from polish)

Panasonic-Leica 25mm f/1.4 gets reviewed at Photographyblog!

There is the next Panasonic-Leica 25mm review at Photographyblog (Click here). The lens gets Highly Recommended by the reviewer: “£548.99 / $599.99 is undoubtedly expensive for a 50mm lens for any system, but given the excellent results, creamy bokeh and snappy performance, we feel that it’s just about justified and a good investment for Micro Four Thirds who have patiently waited for a fast standard prime.”

The lens worldwide shipment starts on July 22th.And those are my affiliate search links if you want to check if it is available for preorder in your country!

E-P3 in Stock at Amazon US and J&R. New studio comparison at Dpreview.

Dpreview posted the Olympus PEN E-P3 studio raw comparison files. But what’s even more important is that unlike Panasonic Olympus is very fast in delivering the new products! The E-P3 is now in Stock for the very first time at Amazon (Click here) and J&R (Click here). And the new top Olympus 12mm lens is also in Stock at Adorama (Click here), BHphoto (Click here) and Amazon (Click here).

One thing I noticed is that usually Panasonic stuff is first in Stock in Asia, than in Europe and than in US while Olympus stuff is first in Stock in Asia, than in US and than in Europe. So it looks like Olympus preference is for the US market instead for the European market.
