Very detailed Olympus E-PL2 review at digitalcamerainfo

Share

Digitalcamerainfo tested the new Olympus E-PL2. It’s a very long review so be sure to have enough time to read it all! They also compared the E-PL2 with the older E-PL1 and yes there seems to be a difference between the two cameras: “Our tests so far show that the color performance of the E-PL2 is relatively unchanged, but the noise performance seems to have been improved slightly.

A first short user report has been written inside the “Just bought Olympus E-PL2!!! WOW! oh WOW!” forum post at Serious compacts. The title says it all ;)

And to conclude, dcresource posted a bunch of new test shots taken with the E-PL2.

E-PL2 preorder links: Amazon, Adorama, Amazon DE, Amazon FR and eBay.

GH2, GF2, G2 and AG-AF100 reviews


The Whistle Bait. Panasonic AF100 PL Mount, GH2, 5D, 7D. From Chris Marino on Vimeo.

We found plenty of new Panasonic Micro Four Thirds camera reviews. Here is the list:

Ganref made a very cool and detailed GH2 vs GH1 vs G2 ISO and resolution comparison. The GH2 shows clearly more resolution but ISO noise is almost equal to the other cameras.

M43photo shows how magnified focus with legacy lenses works on the GH2

There are two non-english GF2 tests. One at DCview and one at Focus Numerique.

(UPDATED) First Olympus XZ-1 review by DSLRmagazine (spanish)

DSLRmagazine is the very first website to post an Olympus XZ-1 review (Click here to read the google english translated text). They made a very detailed and accurate test. Those are a few interesting discoveries:

– The lens resolution is very high at 28mm and wide open (f/1.8)! Resolution decreases on the tele end.
– Moderate distorion at 28mm
– Moderate Vignetting at 28mm and f/1.8
– Very good autofocus and metering!
– Veyr good image quality up to ISO 800.

All in all a very good camera that is on par (if not slightly better) than the competition (Panasonic LX5, Samsung EX1 and Canon S95)

UPDATE: pcpop posted a XZ-1 review with many image samples.

Olympus XZ-1 preorders at Amazon, Adorama, Amazon Deutschland, Amazon France and Amazon UK.

Look at that photo at Flickr. It looks like the Olympus E-PL2 “could” have some red dot issues. Did you find more pictures showing the same issue?

Panasonic LX5 sensor tested at DxOmark

DxOmark tested the Panasonic LX5 sensor which is also the heart of the Olympus XZ-1. As you can see the LX5 is on par with the Samsung EX1/TL500 and behind the Canon S95 sensor.

P.S.: Olympus XZ-1 preorders at Amazon, Adorama, Amazon Deutschland, Amazon France and Amazon UK.
