Good news for our japanese readers! The Panasonic G2 will be in Stock on Amazon on April 28.
Sadly we have bad news in Europe and US:

– In US there is still no known arrival date in Amazon and BHphoto.
Amazon Germany doesn’t list the camera.

One more thing:
A special G2 offer + BAG is now available in Japan -> http://panasonic.jp/dc/campaign_g2/index.html

Rice High against DPreview!

Even if this is a non related Panasonic/Olympus post I believe you should read what RiceHigh wrote in his latest post. I believe almost everyone here does read the DPreview tests. A few days ago they posted the Canon 550D review and also compared it with the Pentax K-x.

RiceHigh says that DPreview has not been completely honest in their judgment “In fact, I just have a strong feeling that the writers just don’t want to embarrass Canon against what they have found out and noticed themselves, which is just so obvious and easily noticeable. So, they have to write some words to counter-balance the facts!

That’s a strong statement “against” dpreview . Do you agree with Rice-High?

Editor’s note: I fully respect Dpreview but I admit that also to me the Pentax K-x images do look better than the Canon 550d images.

Happy Easter!

I am currently in Antwerpen with my girlfriend’s family. It has been a bit too rainy for my tastes but I really enjoy it here.
I wish you a good time with your friends and your family. And I want to thank you for helping me to keep 43rumors running. I hope to see you next week on 43rumors because I have some good news to tell you. 43rumors will soon have a new professional layout and new amazing features. And of course there will be rumors! All I can tell you now is that MicroFourThirds competition is coming…

But today is not the time for rumors :)
Happy Easter to all of you!!!
