Gordon Laing just publsihed his Panasonic GH3 review on CameraLabs (Click here). The camera got an overall score of 88% and Gordon writes: ” While many manufacturers are still looking to miniaturise their compact system camera offerings, with the GH3 Panasonic appears to be pursuing a different goal which is to produce a mirrorless camera every bit as functional, capable and robust as a professional DSLR. The Lumix GH3 is evidence that they are succeeding and is more than deserving of Cameralabs Highly Recommended award. Micro Four Thirds goes from strength to strength.”

Alex: “I am still puzzled by the lack of noticing the dynamic range of the GH3, not less after the DxOmark of the GH3 showing it equal to the OMD – Which if you look at the attached can not possibly be true… The OMD is way behind when it when it comes to highlight. The shoot out is from this link: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/post/50378636”
The LX7 just got DxOmarked (Click here). The performance is way better than the “older” LX5 but still far behind the best in class the Sony RX100 (66 points). But witht he recent huge LX7 price drops the Panaosnic is also $350 cheaper than the Sony RX100! Now let’s see how the new Olympus high end compact camera will be (coming second half of the year).
