Reviews, Etc (E-PL2, GH2, D7000, P7000, EX1/TL500, NX11, etc)

Welcome to a new edition of "Reviews, Etc", the artist formerly known as "Review Train". As usual, for lens reviews, be sure to check the dedicated and shockingly still disciplined Lens Reviews mini-hive.

Curious about how the new Olympus E-PL2 performs in the hands of a real-world working photographer? Visual Science Labs has began a series of posts on this new camera, first first impressions and then a sample portrait. Stay tuned to VSL for more.

The Rodney Dangerfield of compacts-with-RAW, the Samsung EX1/TL500 has a new review out at Register Hardware.

If you are one of the eleven photographers interested in the new Samsung NX11, What Digital Camera has posted a short hands-on first impressions.

The Nikon D7000 action continues, this time a new hands-on report is out at Neutral Day.

On the other side of the alphabet, the Nikon Coolpix P7000 has a new review at DC Resource which has also updated their review schedule.

If you are a fan of the review-entertainment genre, there is an 8-minute video on the Panasonic GH2 at Digital Rev.
