M43blogspot (Click here) compared the new Olympus 45mm lens with the Panasonic-Leica 45mm macro lens: “So, which lens is best in terms of sharpness? I think that the Panasonic lens generally does better. The Panasonic lens appears to render a bit better at f/2.8, in my opinion. At larger apertures, there is no comparison, of course, since the Panasonic lens cannot be opened further.

Olympus 45mm first impression by snowhenge (Click here): “This is a fun lens to use, much more so in my opinion that the highly-rated Lumix 20mm. It is light, but well built, with a large, well damped focus ring. It looks gorgeous. And the results are pretty much guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. This is a must-have lens for and Micro Four Thirds camera owner. And an absolute bargain“.

Techradar (Click here) posted a full Olympus E-PM1 review: “The excellent build quality, fast autofocus, compact size and relatively low price all add up to a very attractive package. Beginners will love the simple control layout and image quality from the Four Thirds Format Live MOS sensor.

Also DC.watch (Click here to read the google translation) posted an E-PM1 review. But the google translation tool makes such a bad job that I will refuse to post the conclusion.

(FT5) GX1 will cost around 600 Euro body only, 999 Euro with 14-42mm X lens.

And here are the next “rumors” about the Panasonic GX1. We have been told by tops sources that the camera body will officially be priced at 600 Euro. That’s 200 Euro more than the price of the current Panasonic GF3 and 50 Euro more than the Sony NEX-5n. But it’s likely that the street price will be a little less than 600 Euro. The GX1 + 14-42mm X lens kit will be priced at 999 Euro. The lens alone costs around 430 Euro and getting the kit would save you 30 Euro. Not that much.

Your thoughts about the price:

SLR Magic HyperPrime 12mm F1.6 Test from Bob Gundu on Vimeo.

Digital-photography-school (Click here) posted a full Olympus E-PL3 review: “very sharp pictures and excellent colour rendition.With noise and artefacts the camera is OK all the way to ISO 3200, with ISO 6400 showing trouble. By ISO 12,800 … forget it.
E-PL3 shop links: Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay.

There is also a new Olympus E-PM1 review at Digitalcamerareview (Click here): “If you’re already shooting a PEN camera you’ll be the best judge of whether the latest generation brings enough to the table to get you to move into a new body. If you’re looking to acquire your first mirrorless interchangeable lens model the field is getting more crowded with brands and models, but the PM1 offers some fairly impressive performance at a fairly bargain price“.
