New reviews (GF3, SLRmagic Hyperprime and 14-140mm lens)


Adorama (Click here) posted a full GF3 review: “The GF3 is a sleek little camera. Its menu structure is logical, graphically pleasing and easy to navigate, and the touch controls are easily mastered making up for the lack of external controls (there are only seven). The camera is amazingly small yet easy to hold, exhibits minimal lag time (none if you prefocus) and should fit the needs of your typical well-heeled snapshooter“. GF3 links at: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay.

Photozone (Click here) tested the Panasonic 14-140mm lens: “it is a compact ultra zoom lens for people who don’t just want to carry around several lenses and accept the performance penalty that are associated with such lenses.” 14-140mm links at: Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay.

Steve Huff (Click here) posted the full 12mm Noktor review: “When I was asked if I wanted to review this lens I was like “great, a 12mm 1.6 lens that is going to be super soft and a pain to use”. Boy was I proved wrong. So much so that this has become a fave of mine on my E-P3. The combo of the solid build and classic rendering make this a special lens for those times when you want a classic almost cinematic look.“. The lens cannot be preordered yet.
