Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 review – The competition
Being the smallest micro four thirds camera available, it is hard to find a direct competitor for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 as there is no camera with the same balance of specification and pocketability. However, for the user looking for a large sensor inside something small and lightweight, the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II has a 1in sensor with a resolution of 20.2 million pixels. Coupling this with a 28-100mm f/1.8-f/4.9 lens, the RX100 II is capable of producing fantastic images, but only with a fixed lens.
Another potential competitor for the GM1 is Panasonic’s own Lumix DMC-GX7. It has near-identical specification and functionality, but benefits from an EVF, bulb-mode shooting and 1080 60i video recording.
