(UPDATED) New GF1 and E-P1 reviews and tests!

Panasonic GF1 on street review …..ohhh! what kind of language is that? Thai! :)


First GF1 unboxing images


Imaging resource just posted some Panasonic GF1 image samples (with ISO comparisons).

And they also finished their E-P1 review: “It’s clear from the image analysis of our test shots that the Olympus E-P1 has more to its appeal than good looks and a fine form...”


Panasonic Lumix GF1 – studio test photos can be seen at

———————————————— reviews the E-P1


Mark (the owner of posted many GF1 versus E-P1 comparisons.

For example take a look at the shutter noise comparison (first set of noises is the GF1, second is the E-P1)

He says “the GF1 is slightly louder and I find the noise more intrusive.You can download the mp3 audio at

Autofocus test are available here (part one) and here (part two)

Good job Mark! ;)

(FT4) Next Panasonic cameras or lenses early 2010

This rumor has been confrimed from many of our sources. Panasonic is not going to release any new MicroFourThirds product in 2009. (They already have done a good job this year!). Maybe a new camera and 1-2 new lenses are expected to be unveiled early 2010 (in February?).

And one more thing, other two sources confirmed us that in 2010 Panasonic will announce more MicroFourThirds lenses than Panasonic showed us on the roadmap!!!

Not only the 100-300mm f/4-5.6 OIS, 8mm f/3.5 fisheye and 14mm f2.8. Some Leica branded Panasonic lenses are expected to be announced during next year!
