New Panasonic GF2 and Olympus E-PL2 Reviews

Share


 

The GF2 vs E-PL2 review battle keeps going and going. Almost everyday you can find new tests about both cameras! Before to start reading the reviews a quick reminder for our US readers (they are the last to get the GF2): The Black GF2+14mm is in Stock at Amazon (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here). And today also the body only Black GF2 is in Stock at BHphoto (Click here).

Panasonic GF2

Panasonic GF2 review at CNET: “Though we still really like Panasonic’s GF series, there are several trade-offs to take into account before you buy the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2. Its raw-format images look extremely good, but JPEG shooters looking for best-possible photo quality may get frustrated by image artifacts. And while lots of photographers will appreciate its relatively compact but functional design and zippy performance–though still not for action shooting–there’s nothing special about its feature set, including underpowered video capture.
The polish website Fotopolis tested the GF2: “In terms of picture quality Panasonic GF2 is very good, always at the forefront. In terms of noise and detail reproduction, we can safely shoot up to ISO 800 without too much concern about the quality of images.
Panasonic GF2 review at EosHD: “The GF2 is an ambitious exercise in miniaturisation which satisfies consumer demand for Canon DSLR quality in a Panasonic compact body. Something still not offered by Canon despite the hints from the market that people want it, i.e. a 10% reduction in Canon’s sales!!
Check the GF2 price at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay.

Olympus E-PL2

Imaging Resource (Click here) posted the Olympus E-PL2 review: “With the 12.3MP Olympus Pen E-PL2, the company has gone a long way to correcting many of the problems that have plagued this line in the past. In particular, the Olympus E-PL2 is a faster and more enjoyable camera to use all around; starting up quicker, focusing quicker, and capturing images quicker“.
Gsnowdon posted a E-PL2 hands-on review.

        He is correct though, I always noticed that…not that it has anything to do with the review or anything…but….OHWELLLLLL.

    • Mr. Reeee

      No kidding.
      I can’t decide which is worse, the whiny tone or the moustache?

    Opps! Yet another typo! Should read ‘reveals’.

  • jeffersonpone

    Does anybody know where is the GF2 for US retail made? Made in Japan or China? Thanks.

    Interesting quote from EosHD. It seems that not only Olympus users are dissatisfied by the slow pace of progress, but Canon as well. And having read Pentax k-r (dp)review, I believe Pentax’s are as well. Seems to me that some camera companies are beginning to lag behind Sony/Panasonic pace of innovation.

    @ Mr.Reeee,

    A hard call. In the end, after much thought,IMHO: a photo finish….
