New Panasonic GF1 review and GF1 review-cluster launched

If you are interested in the Panasonic GF1, be sure to keep this brand new page handy - it is a list of Panasonic GF1 reviews, what we call a review-cluster. There is a total of 13 reviews, from camera-review "factories" and individual photographers alike.

We are also adding a new feature with this review-cluster, a number next to each review which indicates (roughly) the order in which the reviews came out. For example, DC-Resource [10] means they were the tenth site (in our list) to review the camera. This can be helpful when tracking firmware and early release issues. This was made possible because of the way reviews are ordered in the mini-site.

New Panasonic GF1 review today as well
A new review of the Panasonic GF1 has gone live today, posted by Digital Camera Review. Their conclusions are on the third-page, they no longer use the giant-page form-factor for their reviews. What did they find? Our lips are sealed! Check it out to find out :)

In other M43rds news
If you enjoy photographer-priority "fresh' reviews, you may enjoy the brand new review-diary of the Olympus E-P1 posted by photographer Ferds Decena. His first installment includes concert photography.

Next up, we go deep inside the cameras. Has all this talk of 4:3, aspect ratio and multi-aspect ratio gotten confusing? If the answer is yes, Serious Compacts sorts it out with visuals.

Panasonic GF1 Stock-status update
We have just completed a refresh of the Panasonic GF1 stock status matrix and unfortunately it was another short update. Short because just about everything is out of stock :-(

However, there are some good news! In addition to the GF1 zoom kit being in-stock, two other system-parts are (as of the time of writing) in-stock and shipping according to the retailers product pages:
+ Panasonic 7-14mm f4 for $1100 at OneCall
+ Panasonic LVF1 viewfinder for $200 by Willoughby's at Amazon (see "More Buying Choices" on the right side) [UPDATE: This is not available, according to one of our readers this is an error in the Willoughby's listing, it was intended for the VF1, not LVF1)

UPDATE #2: Panasonic GF1 + pancake is now SOLD OUT
As of Monday AM, this lens has sold out and the shipping estimate has returned to "ships in 1 to 2 months'. The previous update follows unaltered: As of 11:22pm EST on Sunday, we were notified by one of our readers that the Panasonic GF1 + pancake kit is shipping from Amazon for $900. This is by Amazon, not by 3rd-party sellers!
