Panasonic GF2 review at DCresource (+Olympus XZ-1 test at Focus Numerique -> f/1.8 lens super sharp!)

DCresource tested the new Panasonic GF2: “It offers very good photo quality, snappy performance, a touchscreen LCD with a customizable interface, the best Auto mode on the planet, and Full HD video recording. The bad news is that it has issues with redeye, underexposure, and highlight clipping, and one of the available kit lenses isn’t great, either.
GF2 shop links: Amazon US , Adorama, BHphoto, Amazon UK, Amazon DE and eBay.

Focus Numerique tested the Olympus XZ-1 and the results are astonishing! The lens is super sharp even wide open (at f/1.8)!!! Distortion is minimal. The only moderate issue is Vignetting. Image quality is good from ISO 100 to 400. Dynamic range is a little bit less than the Panasonic LX5. Message to Olympus: Great acamera, but please we want more good lenses for our Micro Four Thirds system! Thanks :)

Panasonic UK success report

Panasonic UK just released a press release saying the GF2 will be in Stock (in UK) starting from today. There are a few very interesting info:
1) 1 of 4 system camera sold in December (in UK) is a mirrorless camera (Panasonic calls it CSC=Compact System Camera).
2) Mirrorless share grow 194% vs. the previous year!
3) 1 of 10 of all changeable lens cameras sold were from the Panasonic!

Those are good news for Panasonic. I hope this will convince the head office to increase the camera production to satisfy our demand for a shorter time supply!

The GF2 is already in Stock at Amazon UK, via third party resellers at Amazon DE and at asian+european eBay resellers (Click here to see current auctions).
According to BHphoto (Click here) the GF2 will arrive in February. Also Amazon US and Adorama are accepting preorders.

(FT4) No new Panasonic Gr (or lenses) at the CP+ show?

I had the “feeling” that Panasonic would not announce the G3 or the new lenses at the CP+ show and now one trusted source confirmed it. He told me Panasonic will not announce the Panasonic G3 at the CP+ show which will take place in Yokohama on February 9th. The G3 announcement will be held the month after (March). This is a bit surprising as the CP+ show is the biggest asian show of the year. The source believes that also the lenses (25mm 1.4 and 12-50mm) will be announced along the G3 in March.

So let’s hope the rumor about a possible Olympus press release on February the 8th turns out to be true. Because we don’t want a boring CP+ show! You can read more about the possible product announcements at Mirrorlessrumors.com.
