Oh what a surprise! The german website Slashcam.de tested the new Panasonic AG-AF100 (or AG-AF101 in Europe) and their final verdict is very positive. The AG-AF100 is more “practical” and has less Moirée and Rolling Shutter than any HDSLR out there. But a closer look reveals how the GH2’s was able to resolve more detail, with less moire and aliasing than the AF100 (via: EosHD). That tiny cheap GH2 really rules 😉
Slashcam also compared the GH2 vs the Canon 60D and Nikon 7000: “Our comparisons show a significantly higher native resolution of the GH2. Even the noise performance and the artifact formation at higher ISOs is much better“…”the Panasonic GH2, as expected, is the current slashCAM reference in the video DSLRs“.
Panasonic has a real winner with the GH2 but I don’t know how much they are aware of it. The GH2 is still out of Stock in US (hey 6 months after the announcement!!!) and the fast zoom lens is still missing (why delay the 12-50mm zoom?). Anyway, once again thanks to all Panasonic engineers for making such a nice camera! Thanks!
