Reviews (A77, E-PM1, J1, Q, X10, GRD4, lots of superzooms, etc)

Now that we caught up with the latest action and yesterday's new products (Zeiss 25mm f2 SLR lens (Canon, Nikon), Hasselblad H4X open-platform medium camera body, and Leica 30mm f2.8 medium format S-system lens), it is time to check some of the latest reviews that have been adding up over the last three days...

One more thing before the review blast - we are now testing a new way of breaking down the interchangeable lens cameras, instead of "mirror existentialism", we break them down by sensor size, with APS-C and above (35mm full frame, APS-C, medium format) in one group, and smaller than APS-C in another (M43rds, Nikon CX, Pentax Q, Kenko). This usually creates more readable blocks of reviews instead of a giant mirrorless block.
