Panasonic GM1 Review : Sensor Performance and Test Results
Panasonic GM1 sensor performance and test results also contain a comparison between the GM1 vs. GX7. See below for the details and their conclusion.
From DxOMark Conclusion :
While it’s slightly disappointing that the sensor in the GM1 can’t match that of the GX7, the former is a few bucks south of $1000 body only. Nevertheless it has competitive image quality in a genuinely small package and the usefulness of the high-speed shutter shouldn’t be overlooked. Paired with the new zoom or the 20mm f1.7 pancake, the GM1 should prove popular as a walkabout.
From Imaging Resource review:
The GM1 feels strong, light and sturdy, and the compact 12-32mm makes it a go-anywhere camera. The autofocus system on the GM1 was brought over from the GX7, and it’s quite impressive.
