DxOmark (Click here) posted the full GX7 sensor test. And the big question is…will it beat the E-M5 sensor? The answer is…it’s pretty much on par (70 point vs E-m5 71 points). This is DxO’s conclusion:
The Panasonic Lumix GX7 is certainly a compelling model. Not only does it now feature in-body stabilization (that’s compatible with any lens fitted) but it also silences critics of the original GX1 over the lack of an EVF. Couple that with the competitive performance of the new 16-Mpix L-MOS sensor and you have a camera that’s classy, refined and very capable.
But you know, DxO has his own rules for judging the sensor quality. You don’t have to take them as a given absolute truth :)
So you may watch over at our friend Gordon from CameraLabs (Click here). He also posted a full GX7 test:
I certainly can’t say (as others have) that this is the best mirrorless camera, the best Micro Four Thirds camera or even the best Lumix G camera. There’s both pros and cons here so it really boils down to which features are a priority for you personally. It could be the aspects that annoyed me may be non-issues for you in which case it’s a great choice.
The greatest GX7 news of the week is that finally our US readers can get it in Black too at BHphoto (Click here). About time!
