Trustedreviews tested the Olympus E-5. It’s a eight page long review and conclusions are on page four: “Ultimately, though, if this is the company’s last DSLR outing, at least it has saved the best until last. It’s well built, easy to use and can produce some great results. Unfortunately, that’s the bare minimum for a high-end DSLR and while there are still plenty of lenses and attachments for the Four Thirds system, we couldn’t in all conscience recommend the E-5 as a system camera you might want to get into from scratch”

Ephotozine publsihed the new Olympus E-PL2 review: “On the one hand we have a small and rather fiddly camera that needs some considerable care in operation. On the other hand we have a very compact unit that can deliver the very highest quality of results, and this must in the end be what counts”

Focus Numerique tested the ISO performance of the new Olympus XZ-1: “Conventionally, images are crisp 100 to 400 ISO. In this speed range, the pictures are well detailed and grain virtually invisible, even at 100% on screen. Overall, the images lack a little contrast, but nothing dramatic. We may also regret a little dynamic range compared to some competitors, including the LX5. ”
