Review Train (D7000, NX100, A55, 60D vs D7000, [Samples: 645D, K-5], etc)

Time for a new edition of the "Review Train". As usual, for lens reviews, be sure to check the Lens Reviews stream. For previous editions of the "Review Train", check the Reviews tag/category archive.

We start with a review of the Nikon D7000 at Photo Radar. Staying at Photo Radar, they have an ISO 100-1600 series of the Bath Abbey taken with the Pentax 645D. Speaking of Pentax, Quesabesde has a brief hands-on along with full-size JPEG and RAW samples taken with the Pentax K-5.

Mirror-mirror on the mirrorless wall, who is the best mirrorless camera of all? That is a question we cannot answer, but a new review of the Samsung NX100 is out at ephotozine.

From the mirrorless we go to the alterna-DSLRs, the pellicle-mirror'ed Sony Alpha A55 getting a new test at Fotopolis (computer translated). Pages #4 and #6 have the ISO/color-charts and samples!

Next we go to Rangefinder Land, where we use our X-Ray vision to find the Invisible Photographer posting "tool or toy" review of the Leica M9 (via myleicablog)

We close this segment with part #3 of the Olympus E-5 review at Zone-10. This segment is 11 pages long! Fire up the kettle! Staying with the E-5, here is a short look at the E-5 at PiXiQ from a new-to-Olympus photographer who has an OM brother in law :)

That's Entertainment: Canon 60D vs Nikon D7000
DigitalRev has an eight-minute video feature discussing Canon 60D vs Nikon D7000, with the City University of Hong Kong as the backdrop. This is DigitalRev-style, sort of the opposite of a dpreview-style 20-page-a-thon.
