Reviews, Etc (D7000, GF2, LX5 DxoMark, E-5 distilled, video-test-experiments, etc)

Time for a new review round-up! This edition is no where near as big as the post-CES mega-roundup, so please don't brew a full pot of coffee :) Lens reviews as usual can be found at the Lens Reviews Cafe.

A new review is out for the Nikon D7000 by Todd Owyoung at I Shoot Shows from the perspective of a music/concert photographer.

Derrick Story has published a distilled summary of his upcoming review at MacWorld of the Olympus E-5 flagship.

The Panasonic GF2 has been flying under the radar with all the other DSLRs/iLCs buzzing about, but it is now starting to get more reviews in the books, the latest one coming at Digital Camera Review.

Staying with Panasonic, the LX5 has now been measured by Dxomark and this means you can compare its measurables with the measurables of other cameras in their system. Here are some pre-filled 3-way comparisons:
+ LX5 vs LX3 vs GF1
+ LX5 vs S95 vs S90
+ LX5 vs G12 vs G11
+ LX5 vs EX1/TL500 vs Coolpix P7000
