Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-GF3 is less than a year old, but has already been replaced by the GF5. How much better is the new 12.1-million-pixel micro four thirds camera? Read the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 review to find out
As expected from a micro four thirds sensor, the Lumix DMC-GF5 struggles a little with shadow detail, and highlights tend to blow out more easily compared to an APS-C-sized sensor. That said, the evaluative metering and contrast curve seem to compensate well for any slight restriction in dynamic range.
However, for those more used to a compact camera or even a mobile phone, the dynamic range of the GF5 will be more than suitable.
