43Rumors posted a great article by DSLRMagazine (Translated version here) comparing the performance of the new Panasonic 35-100 mm x Power Zoom micro 4/3 lens and the highly renowned Canon 70-200 mm lens.

It’s David vs Goliath… Camera Style!

A hands on look at the Canon EOS M Mirrorless Camera. In our opinion, Canon is just dipping their toe in the mirrorless pool with this effort, and have a long way to go to get on par with the likes of SONY, Panasonic and Olympus. Of course, Canon is a leader and is highly invested in DSLR photography, so it will be interesting to see if they warm up to mirrorless imaging as the industry moves in that direction. Canon EOS M Here are some other mirrorless camera systems that we recommend in the same price range (or even [More]

We haven’t personally tested the Canon, but it looks like a decent offering for those who aren’t in to interchangeable lenses. Our conclusion: The OMD is clearly the “Mercedes” of the bunch, and it [More]

Canon EOS M Mirrorless Camera Hands on First Look. The Canon EOS M is Canon’s first mirrorless camera but inside it has much the same technology as the Canon 650D.
