A german friend sent us an interesting link: http://www.colorfoto.de/Uebersicht/Bestenliste-Objektive_425915.html

They tested a lot of camera and lenses. You can notice that if you compare the 14-42mm and 17mm MFT lens the 14-42 shows bettere results!

In case you missed it…Panasonic GH1 and G1 firmware update!

Panasonic has posted firmware updates for its DMC-GH1 and DMC-G1 Micro Four-Thirds cameras. Both updates improve autofocus performance in low contrast conditions and the stability of auto exposure (AE) for the recently released Panasonic Leica 45mm F2.8 Macro lens. The GH1 firmware v1.2 also decreases the AF operation sound of the 20mm F1.7 pancake lens for quieter video recording.

(FT2) Olympus E-5 with HD video?

Jason (look for Jason in the comments) seems to know more that we can imagine…

“The GH1 is a pretty good option for HD video in a DSLR, actually one of the best currently available. The still image quality, however, is one of its biggest weaknesses. The introduction of a new semi-pro “full-size” Olympus Four Thirds camera is coming soon. It will have HD video, along with excellent still image quality. It will combined everything Olympus and Panasonic have done up until now, resulting in one of the best all around cameras on the market. And, as always, you can quote me on that.”

click on the graph to enlarge it!

I checked the prices in US, UK and Germany and I noticed a price drop in Germany (-100 Euro!).

Two big german online stores are selling the E-3 body for 800 Euros only. Normally such big price drops happens when the camera is going to be replaced.
