Panasonic prepares for “garage sale”, to axe 10,000 jobs (Reuters).

Club Panasonic is running a sale on the Lumix G5 with 1 or 2 lens kits through 1 December 2012.  G5KK prefixed bundles.  The sales range from US $150-250 off list prices, with free shipping.  I haven’t done any checking yet to see how these compare with retailers such as Amazon.  Since they are based on list prices, the online retailers might beat them.

Jurek:Hope all is well with you. I recently flew to Hawaii for nine days and recorded some video of the trip. So this is not a rumor, not a test or review, but it was shot on a m43 camera! Perhaps if you enjoy it and have a slow news day, you are more than welcome to share it with your readers. https://vimeo.com/53177869

Ming Thein published a comparative lens review with the new Olympus 17mm f/1.8 lens: “the 20/1.7 is punchier but has slightly lower microcontrast; the 17/1.8 has lower macrocontrast but better reproduction of fine detail structures – i.e. better microcontrast

ePhotozine published the full E-PM2 review and became their “Editor’s choice“. They say: “The Olympus PEN Mini E-PM2 produces excellent photos and punches well above its weight.

ThePhotoblogapher posted his first impressions review: “Though I initially had some concerns, the E-PL5 is turning out to be one heck of a compact performer.
