Just a small update about the MicroFourThirds competition. It seems that Sony is going to announce two or more mirrorless cameras on PMA (click here to read the specs on SonyAlphaRumors). Samsung is also going to announce a cheaper NX camera (source: k-rumors.com).
What’s common with the the two rumors is that it seems that both companies will present very compact cameras (like the Pen-series or Panasonic GF1).
Interesting: Canon and Nikon should not unveil any mirrorless camera soon…
I just received this mail from Noktor: “Senko, Navitar, Yakumo, etc all re-brand their lenses from a single japanese optical company. They do not make the lenses. The Noktor lens is slightly different in mechanical design, and has a different internal anti-reflective coating as well.“

DxO mark just posted their latest sensor test of the Panasonic GF1 and Olympus E-P2. As expected there is only a marginal difference.
Just for fun I added a link to the triple comparison between the GF1+E-P2+the new Canon 550D (T2i).
