Curious: Sanyo presents the…GH2!

As you know Panasonic owns Sanyo since 2009. So it is a little bit strange that Sanyo unveiled their latest GH2 full-HD cam. Why has Sanyo/Panasonic choosen that name? Does it mean that the next Panasonic GH1 successor will have a different name?
There must be some reason behind that choice…

Steve Huff seems to not sleep at night! Almost every day he is posting reviews about lenses and cameras and today he published the new Olympus E-PL1 (First Look).

DCresource updated their Olympus E-PL1 review with new tests.

One more (short) review has been published on pcpro.co.uk (found via noisycamera)

The dutch magazine pixelmania.nl also tested the E-PL1 (google english translation)

In the meanwhile the editors from quesabesde had a meeting with Olympus to talk about the E-PL1. After having shared the time with them quesabesde strongly believes that Olympus will sooner or later abbandone FourThirds! (google english tranlsation)

One more thing: The E-PL1 has been awarded (best product design) red-dot.de (found via Olympus Japan)

What intrigues me about the next Olympus FourThirds camera

Since yesterday we know that a new Olympus camera is going to be announced early in April (probably on April 2). The first unconfirmed rumor suggests that it will be a new entry level FourThirds camera. Even if you are not interested in such a camera, this camera is much more important than we could imagine. For many reasons:
1) In a few months MicroFourThirds changed the whole Olympus product strategy. What kind of influence will this have on future FourThirds cameras? For example: Will the next FourThirds camera have video?
2) What kind of improvements will the next FourThirds camera have? It will be interesting to see how Olympus improved the processing engine, the image stabilization and many other apsects of the camera. Some of these improvements could be implemented in future MicroFourThirds cameras.

Can’t wait to know more about that camera!
