Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 review


Price as reviewed:


Dynamic Range

Although the GF2 has not yet received a score from the DxO labs, the same sensor in the G2 reached a maximum dynamic range of just over 10EV.

This is very much in keeping with similar Four Thirds sensors, but is nearly 2EV less than that achieved by its APS-C-format competitors.

The i-Dynamic range does go some way to enhance its potential, but is clearly still at a disadvantage because of the physical size of its sensor.
