Review Train (Panasonic GH2 vs Canon 60D video wars, K-5, lots of P&S)

Time for a break from the Black-Cyber-Friday-Monday madness for a new edition of the "Review Train". All reviews mentioned here are free to read! No coupon required :) For previous installments, check the Reviews category archives. Lens reviews are posted at the Lens Reviews Borg Cube.

We start at dpreview where the Canon G12 samples were added to the high-end compacts group test. Explanation of the update in this short post where they mention you can do a DIY-comparison with the Samsung EX1/TL500 by selecting it from the menu of camera options in the dpreview comparison pages.

Next up, a new review of the Pentax K-5 is out at Photo Radar.

The Lens Rentals blog has posted a long article on "How to Test a Lens". Fear not, rulers and brick walls are included!

Video Wars: Panasonic GH2 vs Canon 60D
EOS-HD has published episode #1 of their Panasonic GH2 vs Canon 60D comparison-review. This is obviously a video priority but also touches upon general aspects of the camera that interest stills-photographers. They also posted a first look that includes ISO comparisons.

Meanwhile, neo-guru Philip Bloom has more of his first impressions with the Panasonic GH2 at ...Movember.
