New reviews (G10, GF1 and LX5)


Photographybay tested the Panasonic G10.

ThePhoBlographer posted a complete Panasonic GF-1 Review

Amin Sabet from Seriouscompacts reviewed the new Panasonic LX5: “The bottom line here is that the LX5 sensor delivers a noticeable improvement compared to the LX3 and is roughly on par with the sensor from the S95 and EX1.“.

A Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 High ISO JPEG Noise preview has been made by Cameralabs. Oh, and one more short LX5 review at has been posted on Macworld!

Both LX5 (the white and the black camera) are in Stock at Amazon (Click here). Both discounted!

    “The bottom line here is that the LX5 sensor delivers a noticeable improvement compared to the LX3 and is roughly on par with the sensor from the S95 and EX1.“

    This should bode well for the new sensor in the GH2, if Panny’s RAW output has caught up to Sony’s Sensor. There will still be some differences due to the size gap between 4/3 and APS-C, but gap in the past was greater then the difference in sensor size. Now it should be less than 1 stop in Raw assuming a similar number of pixels.

      .. but LX5 has CCD senzor .. senzors in GH2 (and similar) are CMOS…

      anyway .. I am looking forward to some DxO tests with these new chips .. GH1 chip was on par with 7D chip (and better in some areas)

    Off-topic. On dpreview home page a poll is running: If you could only have one lens for your SLR, what would it be?

    Zooms (fast std zoom, superzoom) are leading, followed by fast prime and wideangle prime.

    Agree this bodes well. Good to see that you are one of the few that understand there is relatively little difference (approx half stop) in light capture per photosite between apsc and 4/3 size sensors. Folks also forget that Sony’s pellicle mirror wastes approx 1/3 stop too.

    I heavily disagree with the GF1 review linked above…I have used it for over 6 months now, and at low iso i really can’t see this low image quality as compared to my D700…sure high ISO are not the Panny’s turf, but then what? I love the camera…would only miss a better grip..
