Our lab tests show that the camera sensor performs very well, but that’s only a part of the imaging chain. How well does this camera perform when coupled with some of the best performing lenses in the range? Read on to find out.
We’ve analyzed the image quality of 33 lens models, around 70% of the current range using the native MFT mount, on the new Olympus OM-D EM-10. Read on to find out which of those lenses perform best and which, if any, you should try and avoid when paired with the new camera.
Following the lens recommendations for Lumix DMC-GX7 we’ve now analyzed the image quality of Panasonic’s diminutive GM1 with over 33 lenses to assess the imaging characteristics specifically with the new camera. Read on to find out which of those models you should be using, and which, if any, you should try and avoid.
