The G11 is bad news, in a way
Jan 28, 2010

I had the Panasonic G1 with the 14-45 and 45-200, and the Olympus E-P1 with the 14-42mm lens. Tired of carrying DSLRs with heavy lenses, I became a happy man with the 4/3 replacements. Besides, the E-P1 is a real beauty.

Then I bought the G11, a whim, since as pocket camera I already had the S90. Now I have headaches. I spent about 2 weeks comparing the G11 with the G1 and the E-P1, shooting RAW, converting with DPP, Olympus Studio, ACR, DxO... Differences in resolution and color depth are negligible. Dynamic range, oh surprise, seems better in the G11. And white balance and exposure are most of the time spot on, and much more accurate than both 4/3 cameras. That’s the headache: why do I want the 4/3 cameras for and when will I carry them with me? Only for high ISO shooting, I guess.

To me, there is more difference in IQ between the S90 and the G11, due to its better lens, than between the latter and the 4/3 cameras I have. And now what? Sell them?
