Canon 60D vs Panasonic GH2 noise reduction comparison (+ Panasonic Fisheye review)

Dpreview just posted the new Canon 60D review. The good news is that they compared the noise perofrmance with “our” new Panasonic GH2: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos60d/page11.asp. It’s doing pretty well! Maybe we should not pay to much attention at what DxOmark says :)

For out japanese readers: Ascii.jp posted a GH2 review!

Panasonic GH2 price and availability check:
Amazon US, Adorama, BHphoto, Amazon UK, Amazon France, Amazon Japan and eBay.

New Voigtländer 25mm f/0.95 review and image samples.

Mike Kobal posted a new set of image samples taken at f/0.95 aperture only! (http://www.mikekobal.com/blog/?p=869). Those are very nice and sharp images! It has much better results than my Noktor 50mm f/0.95 :)

Soundimageplus posted the first part of his Voigtländer 25mm f/0.95 review and those are some of their key findings:
- I was concerned that I may have problems focusing at f/0.95 but these fears proved unfounded.
- This lens focuses to just over 6″ or 17 CM. This is INCREDIBLY useful.
- The Bokeh is “Incredible“.
- I’ve detected very little CA and fringing

I just checked eBay again and there are Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 three shops from Hong Kong and Germany selling the lens (Click here)[/shoplink]. Worldwide shipment!

Panasonic 14mm lens in Stock in Europe and on eBay!

Finally non-japanese stores do have some of the new Panasonic stuff in Stock :)
Amazon Deutschland has the new Panasonic 14mm lens in Stock right now!. And so Amazon UK.
That leads us to hope that also Amazon US, Adorama and BHphoto will have it in Stock soon!

I don’t advice you to buy the japanese GH2 (which are currently in auction on eBay) because you have to deal with the japanese menu. But you don’t have that problem when you buy a lens! Japanese resellers are currently selling some of these lenses on eBay (Click here).

P.S: ThePublicEye posted a few Panasonic 14mm image samples.

Panasonic and Olympus financial reports (making less money with cameras)

The first half of the fiscal year 2010 for the Japanese company Panasonic is extremely profitable but the digital camera and mobile phone sales are in decline. The operating division’s profit is 61.3 billion yen (about € 548 million) – an increase of 481% over the previous year (quarterly figures, see table below). Panasonic attributes the huge increase in profits to reduce fixed costs and economies of scale. Source: Photoscala

The Olympus sales

In the second fiscal quarter of 2010/11 Olympus is continuing the downward trend of their photo section. Overall earnings of the “Imaging sector” decrease of 22.4% over the first half of last year. Source: Photoscala
