Panasonic Lumix GF7 Review – Resolution

Using the supplied 12-32mm zoom at 25mm f/5.6, the GF7 resolves approximately 2800l/ph in our resolution tests, which is a reasonable result for a 16MP camera. It maintains this at the lower end of the sensitivity range, dropping to 2600l/ph at ISO 1600. At higher settings it falls more rapidly, to 2200l/ph at ISO 25,600.
