Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 review: Compact and Competitive

Sensor Review
Introduction | Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 sensor performance: Good but not great | Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 vs Nikon 1 J3 vs Olympus PEN E-PM2: Competitive Performance? | Conclusion

While it’s slightly disappointing that the sensor in the GM1 can’t match that of the GX7, the former is a few bucks south of $1000 body only. Nevertheless it has competitive image quality in a genuinely small package and the usefulness of the high-speed shutter shouldn’t be overlooked. Paired with the new zoom or the 20mm f1.7 pancake, the GM1 should prove popular as a walkabout.
