Mirrorless system camera sales in UK (Source: Amateur Photographer)

Over at MirrorlessRumors I summed up the five possible reasons why Mirrorless struggles to become popular in North American and European countries. Amateur Photographer interviewed Mr. Sykes from Panasonic who explains the main problem was that companies were too much focused on trying to sell a certain volume instead of focusing on educate the customer about advantages of the new mirrorless cameras. That’s why Panasonic is “imploring photography journalists to conduct reviews of CSCs ‘against DSLRs’, rather than testing like with like.

Last year mirrorlesss camera sales in UK dropped by 46,000 units. But there is also a good news reported by Sykes: “Compact system camera is now returning to a period of growth which is really pleasing“.

New Olympus 25mm lens reviews by Pixelmania and Steve Huff.

The Dutch friends from Pixelmania posted the second and larger part of their 25mm MFT lens comparison. And I couldn’t agree more with their conclusion:

All three deliver crisp images, have little distortion, and so on. Yes, the Voigtländer is slightly stronger, the cheaper Olympus, Panasonic sharper in the center, and so on and so forth. The big winner is in our opinion the MFT camera user can choose from three great 25mm lenses.

Steve Huff also posted the full Olympus lens review and writes:

I prefer the Olympus as I am not losing much at all over the Panasonic but I am gaining the small size, the nice price and the overall look that matches my other Olympus primes AS WELL as almost no CA issues. I could live with EITHER lens long-term.
