E-P2 vs GF1 and GH1 vs E-P2 vs M9

Today we found two comparison:

1) Olympus E-P2 vs. Panasonic GF1 comparison at Neutralday. They posted only the first part of the review so final conclusions will follow soon.

2) Panasonic GH1 vs Olympus E-P2 vs Leica M9 by Steve Huff. Steve recently produced a lot of interesting reviews and comparisons. The Leica M9 wins the challenge but costs also 7 times more than the Panasonic GF1!

(FT3) UPDATED -> Panasonic new camera announcement on FEB 18?

I just received following information from a new source. He says Panasonic will announce the new MicroFourThirds camera on FEB 18. The new camera will probably have more to offer than the E-P1/E-P2 or GF1  ( ….I know that’s a criptic message but that is what I have been told ).

If you know something more contact me at 43rumors@gmail.com

UPDATE: I upgraded the rumor value from FT2 to FT3. I had the chance to contact the rumor source and my sixth sense says he could really know something!


FT1= Rumor which is almost impossible it will become true

FT2=Rumor from a new unknown source (not reliable and not confirmed from trusted sources I know)

FT3=Rumor from one or more sources which maybe could become true

FT4=Rumor from one or more sources which already gave me correct rumors in the past. There is a 70-80% the rumors are true

FT5= Very trusted sources gave me the rumor. There is a 90% chance it will become true.

One more thing: We also learned that trusted sources can be wrong sometimes and also Companies can change their decisions or maybe spread false rumors into the wild!

You choose the final new 43rumors layout!

Both layouts are very similar and not in final stage. But now you take the decision!

What’s the difference between the two? One has the central camera database bar with shortlinks to shops and latest news. The other has a smaller adsense bar.

Layout A

Layout B

Here we have the camera database. You can select Cameras, lenses, Adapters (it slides smootly from one content to another). And you have always direct links to shops, latest news and reviews!

Click to enlarge Layout version B

What do you wish the new Panasonic µ4/3 25mm f/1.4 to be like? (Select a maximum of two options)

UPDATED with new screenshot -> future new 43rumors website.


Latest version on top:
Screenshot 4 (it opens the image in a new tab) of the future 43rumors website

Screenshot 3

Screenshot 2

Screenshot 1.

After long discussions I choosed to work on the details of the actual design.

Major changes are:
1) The Logo is new. I hope you like it
2) We added a cameradatabase under the header. Every camera has a quick link to news and reviews
3) We choose to keep the three column design but the main-central content with all the post is now 100px larger. The main content has been also moved up by 200px (Less scrolling)

Remember this is only a very Alpha version of the design. Feel free to tell if you like it or not!
Thanks :)

Are you satisfied with the GH2 image quality and noise handling?
