Review Train (Olympus E30 and SP565uz, Fuji F60fd, D3X, LX3, etc)

Welcome to a new edition of the "Review Train", a round-up of the latest reviews from around the blogosphere and review-o-sphere.

DSLR Reviews
The Olympus E30 surprised a few people with its timing and configuration, but regardless, it's a "living camera" now. So what did Digital Camera Review think about it?

There is a new review of the new price-queen, the Nikon D3X, at the website of the print-magazine at Popular Photography.

And the queen of buzz, the Canon 5D Mark II was reviewed by Steve's Digicams.

RAWsumer reviews
RAWsumers are cameras with fixed lenses that have native RAW support. They are only a small percentage these days, partly because we get almost 200 new models from the major manufacturers alone. Yes, the attack of the shiny-silver clones!

With that as an introduction, be sure to check out the Olympus SP-565z super-zoom review at Photography Blog. Before the CES 2009 announcements, the 20X zoom ratio was tops, now not so much.

DP Interface joins the club of review-sites that have posted a Panasonic LX3 review. So, what did they find? Well, as usual, no revelations here!

WE close the RAWsumer-review segment with the Nikon P6000 getting reviewed at Photography Review. It felt like P6000-week in the last few days as it has picked up some new reviews. You can check the list out at the Review Organizer.

Compact reviews
Hot off the presses, is the Camera Labs reviews of the Fuji F60fd. There are some expectations from Fuji this Spring, as they had promised advances in sensor-technology along with a dual-lens/dual-sensor camera. But for now, the F60fd is one of the three active F-series models (F100fd, F60fd, F50fd).

One of the most affordable camera models out there is the Nikon Coolpix L18, available in trendy ruby-red or blue and going for $100 or less. So how does it do? Photo Daily News has posted their take on the L18!

Next up, the "Barbie Cam", the anti-A-series model, the Powershot E1 gets reviewed by DP Interface. It's like a Canon A-series with just basic features and a more "fashionable" look.
