New Panasonic GH2 and E-PL2 reviews


Panasonic GH2

Trustedreviews tested the GH2: “The GH2 is an incredibly versatile camera, offering image quality that comes close to a DSLR but in a body that’s lighter and more compact. What’s more, the flip out touchscreen, mass of manual controls, and instant-on video capabilities make it not just a jack but nearly a master of all. However, there is one whopper of a stumbling block, and that’s price.
Teh australian magazine Pcworld also tested the GH2: “The bottom line is that the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH2 Micro Four Thirds camera is an excellent product. Its combination of manual and automatic features make it ideal for any type of user and if you want to make the most of its manual features the learning curve isn’t too high
And at last Digitalcamerareview posted a first look article and Fourthirds-user posted JPG and RAW samples on their website.
You can check price and availability at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay.

Olympus E-PL2

Steve digicams finished his Olympus E-PL2 review: “Olympus has taken an already awesome camera (the E-PL1) and made it even better. The E-PL2 has some note worthy improvements that add to the appeal of this series, with the addition of the control dial, beefier hand grip, new conversion lens options, and the PENPAL being my personally favorites.

(FT3) After Pentax also Nikon will announce a tiny sensors mirrorless system? The “nikon coolpix pro”

Is that the “Nikon Coolpix Pro“?

You can stop to hold your breath Olympus and Panasonic. Breathe! If the latest rumor we received from a new source turns out to be true than Nikon will announce a mirrorless system with very tiny sensor in April!
UPDATE: The system will be named “Nikon Coolpix Pro“. The name suggests that Nikon might uses tiny sensors for it and there are patents that support a sensor size of 16mm, and lenses with a coverage of approx 17mm. This will be approx 2.5x cropfactor.

You can read more about the story at MirrorlessRumors.com.

A Mirrorless spring roadmap

I made a Mirrorless roadmap of the possible camera/lens announcements. As usual follow MirrorlessRumors if you want to read news about ALL systems. Thanks!

P.S.: I got some info about the possible Nikon mirrorless system. I will post them soon at MR. If the rumor is correct than Micro Four Thirds doesn’t have to fear that competition. THANKS to the anonymous source that gave me that! I hope to correctly interpret the message 😉

First E-PL2 video with new converters (+compact camera patent design)

The video I posted above is the first made with the Olympus Pen EPL-2 with Macro , Fisheye and Wide-angle converters! Sadly you can’t find them in Stock right now :(

There is also a bunch of new E-PL2 tests at Pixelmania (dutch), Focus Numerique (french) and DCview (japanese). E-PL2 links to Amazon, Adorama, B&H, eBay.

If you are a registered 43rumors member and do own the E-PL2 feel free to add your rating: http://www.43rumors.com/cameras/olympus-e-pl2/#ratingandreviews

P.S.: Forum Olympus France posted a patented design of a new Olympus compact camera which looks very close to the new SZ-10.
