Olympus 14-150mm and Panasonic G1 reviewed!

Letsgodigital tested the new Olympus 14-150mm lens: http://www.letsgodigital.org/en/26746/olympus-lens-review/. Their conclusions? On a Olympus body: “For every other photographer, it is recommended for easy and relaxed photography!“. If you own a Panasonic MFT camera than you will lack IS (Image Stabilization).

Alphamountworls also wrote a nice Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 Review: http://www.alphamountworld.com/reviews/panasonic-lumix-dmc-g1-review. Cgarrard has some mixed feelings regarding the G1 but he amdits that “I grab the G1 quite often right now.“.

(FT3) Is it the GF2/GH2 or GF3/GH3?

We know that specs and features is what we are looking for but it would be also “nice” to know the real name of the next Panasonic cameras! A new source contacted us to say that Panasonics new GF camera will be called GF3 and not GF2!

That sounds very likely because few months ago Imaging Resource had a chance to talk with Yoshiyuki Inoue (senior camera planner from Panasonic Corporation). Adn he said that the GH3 or a GF3 may having different AF in movies…

So may we should call them GF3 and GH3!

Reminder: There is a superdeal ongoing at Amazon -> Panasonic GF1 with 20mm f/1.7 Aspherical Lens for $649.99 (click here to buy the camera now!) and BHphoto (same price)

And I would like to know from our readers what they think about the folowing post from RiceHigh “If Size Really Matters, What’s the Meaning of Micro-4/3 Now?

Just my two cent…The Sony NEX-3(5) surprised us all with their compact size, but they also had to sacrifice the usability. Anyway, I am sure Panasonic and Olympus will soon release even smaller cameras…
