GH3:
Also Trustedreviews posted a new GH3 preview and writes that: “The only DSLRs that come close to offering the video features and quality it offers cost significantly more. With all this goodness stuffed into a weatherproofed body that’s still smaller and lighter than most pro-level SLRs, Nikon and Canon should be watching their backs – though we’re sparing our final verdict till the full review.
We will soon see if that is an overstatement or not but one thing is sure. Nikon and Canon aren’t’ taking the new mirrorless market very seriously. And it will be hard for them to catch up with the MFT-NEX and Fuji X system.

E-PL5
Meantime the press keeps talking about the Micro Four Thirds system. The largest European weekly magazine just praised the new Olympus E-PL5. Read the article from Der Spiegel (translation here). They write: “The e-PL5 is one of the best compact mirrorless cameras. The picture quality is impressive and focus extremely fast and reliable”. I am a daily Der Spiegel reader and I know they do not often use such words for their reviews!
One more little news: Olympus Japan issued a statement to say that the E-PM2 will ship from October 26th. The E-PL5 is already shipping via Digitalrev (worlwide shipment) and eBay (Click here).
