The Lumix GM1 achieves a DxOMark score of 66 points and is ranked in 98th place overall above the firm’s respected, but no longer made GH1 model.
If that doesn’t sound impressive the GM1 above most others of the same format, save for the most recent, high-end models such as the E-M1, E-M5 and GH-3. It’s also only one point over the APS-C Canon EOS M and EOS Rebel T3i (600D).
The Olympus OM-D E-M1 has the best color depth at 23-bits of the MFT cameras and the widest DR, a stop more than this new model. The GX7 has a + 1/2 stop advantage in DR.
Low light performance is around -1/2 stop down on the best MFT cameras in our database, and around -1/4 stop lower than the Panasonic GX7.
