New reviews roundup (GF5, E-M5, Sigma 19mm, Leica 35mm)

Sigma 19mm
DSLRmagazine (Click here for the translation) posted the new Sigma 19mm lens review. Resolution is very good and the lens has no CA, no aberrations no major flaws a part of some vignetting at f/2.8. Afterall the two new Sigma 30mm and 19mm lenses are performing extremely well and may be the best choice it you have a limited budget! For my European friends. Take a look at the lens price from Digitalrev as it is cheaper than in Europe (with improt tax icluded!):

Panasonic GX1
Photographyblog (Click here) posted the full Panasonic GF5 review: “With the GX-1 satisfying the needs of prosumers, the GF5 is free to concentrate on wooing compact step-up users, and it does a great job of persuading them to invest in what is undoubtedly a faster, fuller-featured system that ultimately delivers better image quality, in a form factor that won’t intimidate or confuse.
Panasonic GF5 search links at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay.

Leica 35mm
ThePhoBlographer (Click here) tested the Leica 35mm Summicron on the E-Pm1: “Though it can be used to create some wonderful images, it also often left me with less keepers than I’d thought due to focusing issues. However, once that focus is perfectly nailed and the user combines this with careful thought, they’ll be able to get images that they’ll be very happy with.
The Leica Summicron is one of the tiniest lenses and available on eBay (Click here).
