Panasonic Lumix GX7 vs GX1 Camera Comparison with Barney Sykes (Lumix G product manager).
GX7 preorders are still high at Amazon (ranking here). But let’s take a look to some interesting new GX7 info: On top you can watch a nice interview with Barney Sykes from Panasonic. Barney says this is the best sensor in the area “we are competing” (I guess he means MFT). And if you want to check if what he tells is true check out the first ISO Full Size image sample posted by ePhotozine (Click here). To make it easier for you I linked you to the direct E-P5 and GX7 Full size ISO images:
ISO 100 E-P5 and GX7 (actually 125 for the Panasonic).
ISO 200 E-P5 and GX7
ISO 400 E-P5 and GX7
ISO 800 E-P5 and GX7
ISO 1600 E-P5 and GX7
ISO 3200 E-P5 and GX7
ISO 6400 E-P5 and GX7
ISO 12800 E-P5 and GX7
ISO 25600 E-P5 and GX7
Of course these are JPG results and we know Olympus usually is a tiny bit better here. That said..
