Panasonic GF7 DR chart

With a peak dynamic range of 12.7EV in our Applied Imaging tests, the GF7 performs well for a Micro Four Thirds model. The range drops monotonously as the sensitivity is raised, indicating increasing noise. Beyond ISO 3200, the very low readings indicate little shadow detail will be recorded.
