Digitalcamerareview posted a 6 page long E-5 FULL! review. You can read their conclusion at page 5 (Click here): “E-3 owners and Olympus fans will be glad to know that the E-5 is a highly capable and rugged imaging tool. Others may be put off by some of the limits of the comparitively smaller and lower-resolution sensor.“.
We just received the info that Panasonic will ship the GH2 from November 14 (Europe). Reminder the GH2 will start shipping from October 29 in Japan and by end of November in US.
UPDATE: Katten posted some GH2+100-300mm lens image samples on Flickr.
A 43rumors reader noticed that: “I had a GH2 Body on my wish list at BHPhoto for the past two weeks. Logged in to my account last night and the GH2 Body is no longer on my list, and BH have removed all references to GH2 Bodies from their price list. Interesting…“.
Meanwhile also Adorama has the GH2 available for preorder.
It’s hard to find good, fast and cheap prime lenses and it is even harder to find zoom lenses! The Canon 25-100mm f/1.8 is one of the few cheap and fast zoom lenses. You can find some image samples at 406club.dyndns.org. They used the Panasonic G1 to take the pictures.
Advent (DVXuser forum user) tested that lens on Micro Four Thirds cameras and said that it is “extremely fast zooming and very sharp”
A cameraporn pictures can be found here at getdpi (Canon 25-100mm on the GH1).
The lens is available at eBay (Click here to see current auctions and price).
P.S.: A high-quality alternative is the Olympus 35-100mm f/2.0 Zuiko Lens for E Series DSLR Cameras but it is 10 times more expensive.
Oh yes guys, the GF2 will come within few months (very early 2011!) and that’s why we are continually having new price drops on the Panasonic GF1.
Just look at Amazon US: The Panasonic GF1+20mm lens is now in Stock for $599 (Click here to get the camera!). One month ago the price was over $800!
And there are also many price drops in Europe. As usual I can’t check every shop in every european country so I give you only a few links to my affiliate shops. Pixmania usually is one of the stores that has very good prices (Click on country name): Pixmania Deutschland, Pixmania Belgium, Pixmania France, Pixmania Austria, Pixmania UK, Pixmania Nederland, Pixmania Poland, Pixmania España,Pixmania Italia.
We told you that Panasonic would lower the price but I don’t believe it will become cheaper as it already is. So if you want the camera buy it

David Long made that nice GH1 vs GH2 comparison graph based on the latest Diwa-award test. DR= Dynamic range SNR= Signal to noise ratio. Click on pictures to enlarge!
Ananonymous source told us that “the 100-300 lens will be available in mid-November, and the GH2 is scheduled to arrive in the US on Nov. 28 or 29.“
