Photographer Peter K. Burian recently posted another comprehensive review on pixiq.com, this time of two Micro Four Thirds cameras: He compares the Olympus E-PL2 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2.
"Digital SLR cameras are very popular because they accept interchangeable lenses for great versatility and are loaded with features. But a DSLR with a lens is somewhat bulky and heavy.
"That's why Panasonic and Olympus developed the Micro Four Thirds system of smaller cameras in 2008. The downsizing was achieved by removing the reflex mirror and the pentaprism; this also shed quite a bit of weight. (Since then, Sony and Samsung have also introduced non-reflex or "mirrorless" cameras.)
"Recently I tested the latest Micro Four-Thirds models, the Olympus E-PL2 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2."
Peter looks at the cameras' large sensors, their features and operation, movie mode, performance, ISOs, and more.
