Panasonic GF1 on street review …..ohhh! what kind of language is that? Thai! :)
First GF1 unboxing images http://www.jacobheftmann.com/news/archives/8878
Imaging resource just posted some Panasonic GF1 image samples (with ISO comparisons).
And they also finished their E-P1 review: “It’s clear from the image analysis of our test shots that the Olympus E-P1 has more to its appeal than good looks and a fine form...”
Panasonic Lumix GF1 – studio test photos can be seen at fotopolis.pl
zone-10.com reviews the E-P1
Mark (the owner of which43.com) posted many GF1 versus E-P1 comparisons.
For example take a look at the shutter noise comparison (first set of noises is the GF1, second is the E-P1)
He says “the GF1 is slightly louder and I find the noise more intrusive.” You can download the mp3 audio at http://which43.com/?attachment_id=87
Good job Mark! ;)
Many people is talking about the new Panasonic GF1 and we thought we should summarize you the most interesting forum threads:
1) Japanese are getting the Panasonic GF1 as first and here we have some first GF1 images: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1041&thread=33148117 and here: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1041&thread=33155455
2) Here you have a picture of the GF1 with Leica lenses: http://www.flickr.com/photos/philou95/3952449825/ Generally you can find many pictures here: http://www.flickr.com/search/?ss=2&w=all&q=GF1&m=text#page=0
4) We havn’t got any info from Europe. I still havn’t heard of any european who got the GF1. Strange that Amazon Germany has not even listed the GF1!
Amazon UK says the GF1 will “usually dispatched within 2 to 5 weeks“. It also says that the Panasonic DMW-LVF1E External Live Viewfinder for Lumix GF1 is due to be released on September 30, 2009. So in UK you can get the Viewfinder before the camera :)
amazon France gives no shipment information (“Ã€ paraÃ®tre – Commandez-le dÃ¨s aujourd’hui!“)
Photo review Australia posted a new Sigma DP2 review. And wow there is nothing that we already knew. The usual message is…”Shot RAW and enjoy your pictures!”
P.S.: In less than one month we will see how the Olympus m4/3 compares to that camera! :)
Order your Sigma DP2 at amazon
