Just a small update about the MicroFourThirds competition. It seems that Sony is going to announce two or more mirrorless cameras on PMA (click here to read the specs on SonyAlphaRumors). Samsung is also going to announce a cheaper NX camera (source: k-rumors.com).
What’s common with the the two rumors is that it seems that both companies will present very compact cameras (like the Pen-series or Panasonic GF1).
Interesting: Canon and Nikon should not unveil any mirrorless camera soon…

DxO mark just posted their latest sensor test of the Panasonic GF1 and Olympus E-P2. As expected there is only a marginal difference.
Just for fun I added a link to the triple comparison between the GF1+E-P2+the new Canon 550D (T2i).
The Notkor 50mm f/0.95 lens for MicroFourThirds is very similar to the three lenses pictured above. I looked around the web and that’s the info I found about the three lenses. Feel free to add your links by commenting this post.

UPDATE: We added the links to Amazon Deutschland. Interesting -> the blue version seems to be not available in Europe.
