Review Train (Sony A55, Nikon D3100, Olympus E-5, Pentax K-5, K-r, etc)

As you may have noticed, the flow of camera reviews has slowed down the last few days as we are in end-of-year Holiday season. For lens reviews, as usual, check the Lens Reviews cabinet. For previous editions of the "Review Train" and other review-related posts, please check the Reviews category.

We start at DC Resource where they have just published their Nikon D3100 review, with conclusions as usual on the Compare page. The next review in the DCRP schedule is the Panasonic GH2.

Next up, the Sony Alpha A55 gets a "home court" review at Photo Club Alpha. [NEW!]

Warning! The next review contains a nude camera taking a shower! ;-) Korean megasite SLRClub has posted a browser-crashing one-page review of the Pentax K-5. As usual, their reviews are published as images, not text+images, so computer-translation cannot help (via Foto Actualidad)

Next up, the current 43M43rds flagship, the Olympus E-5 gets a new review at NeoCamera. Keanu Reeves not included!

Meanwhile, the Pentax K-r, flying a little bit under the radar at the moment, has a new review at Digital Technology Guide Review.
