Beautiful Decay [Panasonic Lumix GH3] from Martin Wallgren on Vimeo.

There are plenty of GH3 reviews and videos to watch! On top you can watch the nice GH3 video sent to me by Martin Wallgren. Than we have Trustedreviews that posted the full GH3 test: “we don’t have any hesitation in saying the GH3 is one of the most intuitive CSCs we’ve used.“. And our friends over at Discovermirrorless posted two new GH3 videos: GH3 Camera Menu Peek and WiFi System on GH3.

Now let’s be confident that this time Panasonic will deliver us the camera next week. Check price and delivery dates at Amazon , Adorama, BhphotoPanasonic USSamys and in Europe at Wexphotographic UK and Technikdirekt.

Lenstip trashes the new Olympus 17mm f/1.8 lens!

Lenstip is the first website to post a full review of the new Olympus 17mm f/1.8 lens. And that sentence kills the lens completely: “This lens is not exactly a successful construction and it should have been thought out better – I write it without scruple. I could even call it ill-considered.

Of course this is just on opinion. You can read different reviews at Ming Thein, Robin Wong and Pekka Potka. But one thing they have in common. No One is really super excited about the lens.

The new Olympus 17mm f/1.8 lens can now be preordered at Adorama, BHphoto and Amazon DE.

(FT2) GX2 in Spring and with no built-in EVF?

FacebookShare

An anonymous source just told me that the GX2 is due for a release in Spring 2013. Furthermore he told me, that it will not (!) have an integrated viewfinder. Other sources told me that it has design changes and the GH3 sensor.
I don’t know what you think about the GX not having an integrated viewfinder. The Fuji X-E1 and the Sony NEX-6 are selling well and I think a competitor against those cameras should be released. Don’t you? My modest opinion is(as you already know) that a Panasonic DMC-LC1 alike camera would be a hotseller. Hope other sources can soon confirm or deny this rumor! Thanks!

P.S.: Some Panasonic LC1 cna be found on auction at eBay (Click here).

Meantime in US and some other countries the GX1 is as cheap as the GF5:
GX1 price at Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay.
GF5 price at Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay.
