Review Train (FZ100 detailed, 20 full size 645D samples, S95 Love Letter, A33, D3100, etc)

Time for a new edition of the "Review Train"! For lens reviews, as usual, be sure to check the Lens Reviews Cloud ;-)

Interchangeable Soul Cameras
The Sony A33 (pellicle-mirror) got its spotlight moment today with a brand new review at Imaging Resource. It has all the usual IR review goodies that can keep you busy for hours and hours of pixeljoyment.

The Nikon D3100 review parade continues, and it's a good thing for the D3100, because once the D7000 rolls out in the review-o-sphere, it will get a much higher priority. The latest new D3100 review has been published at Photo Radar.

I am still alive sings Eddie "E600" Vedder! How do you segue ("segway") from that to the Olympus E600 review at DigiCamReview? I don't know :)

We start with a detailed look at the Panasonic Fz100 at Preview of my Fz100, a French website that has lots of Fz100 action and closes with a *spoiler alert* petition to Panasonic France. Il n'est pas une bed du roses!

Next up, a brand new review of the Canon G12, a "virtual cousin" of the Nikon P7000, reviewed at Photo Radar.

Staying with Canon, David Pogue may have a first, he wrote a LOVE LETTER to the Canon S95. It is not NSFW :) And in a sign of Pogue Power, since his post went up, the Canon S95 has been trending up in sales at Amazon. It's not often a digital camera receives a love letter after all!
