Review Train (Nikon D3100, P7000, G12 vs LX5 vs EX1 noise-a-thon, etc)

Time for a new edition of the "Review Train"! For lens reviews, be sure to check the Lens Reviews diary.

We start with a Nikon D3100 double-header review, at Digital Review of Canada and Steve Huff Photo.

Reviews shmreviews! How about using the camera "on assignment"? Digital Camera Review took the Olympus E-P1 to the US Open.

From the Noise Department, Focus Numerique has a 3-way ISO comparison between the Canon G12, the Panasonic LX-5 and la Samsung EX1/TL500. Not included in the comparison is the Nikon Coolpix P7000, but don't cry for Coolpixina, it got a review of its own at Neo Camera.

Meanwhile in Japan, DC Watch Impress tests out the Panasonic GH1 with the new 14mm f2.5 pancake lens.

Next up, Kirk Tuck revisits the Canon 60D, and it's not a crown of thorns for the 60D - for a change.

Zoom-zoom at Quesabesde where they post their usual excellent hands-on reports and analysis, this time the Panasonic FZ100 superzoom.

Hey! I iz here nao sez the Sony Alpha A580, the DSLR buried under the pellicles and the mirrorlesses and the NEX camcorder. Color charts and real world samples are available at Fotopolis.
