Review Train (Hasselblad H3Dii-31, Canon T2i, Nikon D3000, $85 flash, etc)

Time to round-up some of the latest camera and gear reviews! For the latest lens reviews, be sure to check the lens review diary. Lenses are the window to a camera's soul (or is it the other way round?) :-)

It's not often medium format cameras get some action, so we start with a hands-on report of the Hasselblad H3DII-31 by photographer Matt Beardsley.

Don't start the Rebolution without reading Steve's review of the Canon D-Rebel T2i aka 550D aka Kiss X4! Okay, now we got that line out of our system ;-)

Coming in just under before the closing bell is a review of the Nikon D3000 DSLR by Thom Hogan. Hogan fans please note that he will be taking his usual "internet sabbatical" in September!

Strobist has a strobist hands-on first-impressions report on the $85 Chinese-made Yongnuo YN-650 flash.

Next up, a double-sided single from Kamera & Bild - they have reviewed the Panasonic G2 and G10 together (computer-translated). Maybe it's lost in the translation, but in the ISO crops, it shows pictures credited as "G2/G10". Did they take a picture with each camera and then merged them? Even if two cameras are using the same sensor, you usually credit the camera that took the picture :) This is rather strange!

It's not often a Kodak camera gets a review, but it is definitely rare that the same Kodak M-series camera gets two reviews on the same day - at Photography Blog and at Pocket Link (oops - it's not a coincidence, both reviews are by the same reviewer)

For the rumor-hunters out there, notice again how quiet the "review train" is. Not a whole lot of reviews from the usual suspects! Is there an announcement storm coming?
