I have to catch up on the reviews front and here is the post that contains them all :)
A special mention goes to my friend Tyson that wrote a couple of “must-read” articles:
Lumix G3 vs the mighty might GF1, or why I chose to upgrade my MILC (tysonrobichaud): “the G3 provides enough of an argument to not be ignored. It ends up, in my mind, as the poor man’s NEX7 or GH2, and I’m happy I saved my money.“. And there are two more articles from Tyson you have to read. One is about the “Holy Trinity” of m43 (Click here) and the second is a GX1 vs GF1 sensor comparison (Click here).
My final thoughts on the Panasonic GX1 vs E-P3 (Steve Huff).
Field Test of the Panasonic Lumix GX1 at The Digital Story (Click here): “Overall I’m very satisfied with the GX1. It feels great in the hand, has lots of external controls, an intuitive menu system, and excellent RAW image quality (albeit JPG just so-so). Overall I’d rate it at least 4.5 stars (out of 5).”
Olympus E-Pm1 tested at Diwa (Click here). Lots of charts for experts!
Panasonic 14-42mm kit lens test at Camerastuffreview (Click here): “Few users will be dissatisfied with the optical qualities of this lens. You can already take surprisingly good shots in terms of image quality with this lens. Simple instructions for the Panasonic 14-42 mm: put the lens on aperture choice, choose aperture 5.6 and try to avoid the highest focal length.”
Panasonic 100-300mm kit lens test at Camerastuffreview (Click here): “The Panasonic 100-300 mm surprises with high optical performance almost over the entire zoom range. At focal lengths above 250 mm (500 mm @ full frame) optical performance rapidly becomes less.”
Olympus 12-50mm review at Fengniao (Click here).
Olympus 12mm review at Sansmirror (Click here): “Absolute pixel peepers will have some problems with the corners wide open, but as fast wide angle primes go, the 12mm f/2 is actually a very good lens.”
P.S.: There is a new 12mm f/1.6 SLR magic lens is now on auction on eBay (Click here).
