Double Panasonic GH2 review from Japan

Share

We have two new reviews at DC.watch (Japanese with google English translation) and Akihabaranews (in English).

For Akihabara the GH2 is an “impressive upgrade!” and “the GH1 was and still is an incredible All-purpose Camera that kicked some serious ass to other big names including Canon or Nikon. The GH2  just proved to us how far ahead Panasonic is in this field. As a GH1 owner I must admit that I struggled to get used to the GH2 new button layouts but the improvement made on this camera are really worth the hassle.

DC.watch wrote a less emotional but more detailed review with many Image samples you can download.

P.S.: Still no news about the GH2 availability in Europe and US.

Sorry guys!
We had some major issue with the server and we worked 6-7 hours to fix it. We even don’t know how we fixed it :)
Give me some time to take a Capuccino and than I will start to post the first news for today.

P.S.: My level of frustration is very high but I just received that nice Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 and that makes me a little bit happy now :)

Panasonic GF2 to start shipment on December 03, 2010 (in Japan)


Panasonic Japan just announced the Panasonic GF2 will start to ship in Japan from December 03, 2010. The expected retail price of a single body around 60,000 yen. The 14mm kit costs 80,000 yen and the double kit (14mm +14-45mm) 90,000 yen.

As usual the rest of the world has to wait 1-2 months more before to get the GF2 :(
Amazon UK already confirmed that the GF2 is due to be released on January 24, 2011. Amazon US and BHphoto have no delivery date.

Hmmm, maybe we will see the GF3 announcement before we have the GF2 in Stock? :)

New Voigtländer reviews (I received my Nokton!)

First I have to say that I just received my Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f/0.95 and I had that nice WOW feeling when I opened the box. It’s extremely well built lens and I love to play with the smooth focus ring and I already love that nice “tic” sound when changing the aperture ring. The first thing I noticed is that you have to make a 1 and 1/2 turns to move from a close focus distance (17cm) to infinite focus. I will try the lens this weekend and compare it with the other wide open king, my Noktor 50mm f/0.95. For the record: I bought that lens from Foto Mundus on eBay.

There are two new reviews:

Peter Lueck reviewed the Voigtländer Nokton 25mm lens. Also ThePublicEye published a short test. And a few image samples can be found at dpreview forum.
