New Micro Four Thrids reviews roundup.


Shootout in the snow – Sony A65 vs GH2 vs 600D from Andrew Reid on Vimeo.

Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital ED 12mm f/2 Review at Photographyblog (Click here): “The lens is an excellent choice for landscapes, architecture and interiors too; as long as you make sure its distortion is taken care of, either in-camera or at the raw conversion stage.” Price check at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Olympus US store, FocusCamera, eBay.

Olympus E-Pm1 review at DigitalPhotographySchool (Click here): “I’m still figuring out why Olympus has launched virtually the same camera in three different guises that this Micro Four Thirds system gear encloses. Beats me!“. There is also a german review at (Click here) and a polish review at Optyczne (Click here). Price check at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Olympus US store, FocusCamera, eBay.

Japanese review of the 14-42mm X lens at Kakaku (Click here).

E-PM1 vs GF3 vs Nikon J1 vs  NEX-C3 image comparison at Tweakers (Click here).

The G3 is the mirrorless camera of the year at Photographyblog (Click here): “For us, the new G3 offers the best balance between the even tinier GF2, the slightly better handling G2, and the videographer-friendly GH2, adding the best still image quality of all G-series cameras, and it’s also a cheaper and for many users simply a better alternative to a full-fledged DSLR. Essential!”

    First, I’d like to say that this site is really great and I check it daily. Regarding the post- The “Shootout” video is probably the worst thing I’ve ever seen. Can’t believe somebody actually attached their name to it.

      What’s so bad about the shootout?

      You could make out how well the various cameras resolved detail (GH2 trumps), handled moire (GH2 wins), and handled low light (GH2 trumps again, am I sensing a trend here?). The 600D was dropped early because it wasn’t anywhere near the league of the A65 and GH2.

      There are areas where the A65 were superior (less black crush), but I remain impressed with the GH2. Although it’s possible that some firmware reverse engineering and hacking on the A65 could even the score.

    Wow, look at the low rating for the GX1! It went from around 8/10 to 3.9/10 almost overnight. Oh wait, somebody “reviewed” some jacket and gave it all zeros.

      interesting way to spam a blog site to get clicks to your store

      I also noticed it yesterday
      @ admin: Could you delete this GX1 “Review”?

    About the Tweakers link: it’s roundup of mirrorless cams under eur 500. The E-PM1 wins, followed closely by the NEX.
