Review Train (Leica S2, Samsung EX1, EX1 vs LX3 bokeh, etc)

Time for another review round-up! We start with the most expensive camera mentioned in this round-up (and probably in most round-ups), the Leica S2, getting not one but two recent reviews! The first review comes from Le Monde de la Photo (computer-translated), and the next one comes from the Korean mega-site SLRClub (via Fotoactualidad). Unfortunately SLR Club publishes their reviews as images instead of text, so computer-translation cannot help us non-Korean readers figure the text out. But fear not, they have lots and lots of pictures and camera body pictures!

Speaking of Korea, the Samsung EX1/TL500 takes on the Panasonic LX3 in a Bokeh comparison series at Serious Compacts. The full-size samples from this shootout are available as .zip downloads if you want to pixel-peep them as well.

Speaking of which, the Samsung EX1/TL500 action continues with a photographer-priority straight-to-the-point review of the EX1/TL500 by Rayaz who also has a long ISO-comparison series in his July archives, including the Pentax K-x, aforementioned EX1/TL500, Canon S3 IS, and the last two Panasonic TZ-series flagships (TZ7/ZS3, TZ10/ZS7).

Speaking of which, the "deputy" of the current Panasonic TZ-series flagship, the TZ8 (ZS5) is getting its 15 minutes at Camera Labs where they have published their review of said camera, including the usual review goodies from CameraLabs.

You can't swing a mouse cord without hitting a Canon SD4000 IS (Ixus 300HS) review these days. The latest one to join the review party is Imaging Resource, granting the prodigal backlit child of the Elph family an express review.

For the latest lens review action, be sure to check the new dedicated Lens Review mini-site which does one thing and one thing only - it tracks the latest lens reviews. And (shockingly perhaps) it manages to maintain topic discipline ;-)
