New Olympus E-5 review at Photographyblog!

Share

There is a new Olympus E-5 review at Photographyblog. It’s a real pleasure to read the first phrase of their final conclusions: “The Olympus E-5 is an exceptionally well-built and rugged digital SLR camera that is a joy to use and produces remarkably crisp images with great colours, and resolution that defies its pixel count.” The camera gets “Highly Recommended“. As you will have noticed almost all E-5 reviews do mention the same (many) strengths but also the same only major weakness….the high price.
There is one more czech review at digimanie.cz (google tranlsated). And if you want to read more E-5 news and reviews click here to read all our E-5 related posts on 43rumors.

E-5 preorder links:

Olympus E-5 (and Panasonic 8mm) review.

Pocket Lint posted the new Olympus E-5 review with the intriguing title: “Has Olympus saved its best Four Thirds DSLR until last?” But their virdict is a little bit strange: “That said, as the E-5 appears to be more an evolution of its existing E-3 owners might also want to consider the likes of an E-PL1 if they want an Olympus feel, less bulk, and a camera that feels a little more in line with current thinking and future development. We do like the E-5, but in a tough present climate we’re just wondering who else will.” Can you really put the E-PL1 on the same level of the E-5??? Click here to read the full review at Pocket Lint.

Photographyblog tested the Panasonic 8mm fisheye: “it is a very specialist lens that provides a unique view on the world. It delivers great image quality in a tiny package“. Build quality is excellent, focus is fast and silent, low CA, high resolution…so what’s the problem with the that lens? The high price :(

First Olympus E-PL1s test at BCNranking (+ E-PL1 double lens kit deal)

As you know the E-PL1s will be available in Japan only and it is a slightly tweaked version of the current E-PL1. It uses the new BLS-5 battery instead of the BLS-1 and shoots up to 6.400 ISO. The japanese website BCNranking tested the new Olympus E-PL1s and the new MSC (Movie and Stills Compatible) M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm II 1:3.5-5.6. You can download and analyze a few image samples (but none of them have been taken at 6.400 ISO). P.S.: There is no plan to release the E-PL1s in Europe or America.

Olympus US is offering a new Christmas deal. You can get the E-PL1 + 14-42mm + 40-140mm lens for $549 at Amazon (Click here)!

New Olympus E-5 review and GH2 and 14mm tests


The video shows the GH2 / 1:1 Crop Mode (from Jean-Baptiste Lefournier)

The Polish site optize.pl tested the Olympus E-5 camera with good results. The final score is 62.82/100. For comparison, the Canon 60D got 59.56 and the Sony A55 got 48.88. We’ll have to wait for the D7000 and K-5 for more direct comparison.

m43photo.blogspot.com compared the new Panasonic 14mm lens with the 14-42mm and the 14-140mm lenses.
