The preproduction G2 tested by quesabesde (image copyright by quesabesde)

Our friend Iker Morán just posted the new Panasonic G2 preview on Quesabesde (google english translation). They hade a pre-production model so things can change a little bit. They also have some image samples available for download and videos.

– There is a small pointer included! Didn’t know that.
– The 14-42 mm lens shows an excellent autofocus performance when recording video sequences

P.S.: No preorders are available on Amazon or BHphoto

(FT5) Competition is fighting back. 2 new mirrorless cameras from Samsung.

Via K-rumors.com:
There will be two new Samsung NX cameras between April and June. The first will be the NX5 we already told you about on k-rumors. The second camera will be the NX100. The NX100 will be released sometimes in May-June and be the first very compact NX model. It is aimed to compete “against” the Panasonic GF1 and Olympus PEN cameras.

Both camera will use the same NX10 sensor.

Lowest Amazon price ever for the GF1+14-45mm lens

Next price drop on the GF1. The Panasonic GF1 with 14-45mm Lens is in Stock for $730.00 on Amazon (click here)

Generally spoken I noticed that now Amazon BHphoto and Adorama do almost have every MicroFourThirds camera and lens in Stock. Most of the items do have the lowest price ever.
Like the Panasonic GH1 for example which now sells for less than $1,200 on amazon.Or the Olympus E-P2 with 14-42mm Lens and Electronic View Finder (less than $1,050)

And the most sold MicroFourThirds lens ever is also in Stock. Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lens for $399.95.
