Olympus 14-150mm and Panasonic G1 reviewed!

Letsgodigital tested the new Olympus 14-150mm lens: http://www.letsgodigital.org/en/26746/olympus-lens-review/. Their conclusions? On a Olympus body: “For every other photographer, it is recommended for easy and relaxed photography!“. If you own a Panasonic MFT camera than you will lack IS (Image Stabilization).

Alphamountworls also wrote a nice Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 Review: http://www.alphamountworld.com/reviews/panasonic-lumix-dmc-g1-review. Cgarrard has some mixed feelings regarding the G1 but he amdits that “I grab the G1 quite often right now.“.

And I would like to know from our readers what they think about the folowing post from RiceHigh “If Size Really Matters, What’s the Meaning of Micro-4/3 Now?

Just my two cent…The Sony NEX-3(5) surprised us all with their compact size, but they also had to sacrifice the usability. Anyway, I am sure Panasonic and Olympus will soon release even smaller cameras…
