G5 versus GX1 LCD quality?
6 months ago
Does anyone who has used both cameras have an opinion on the quality of the LCDs in these cameras? I recently bought the G5 and so far have been a bit disappointed with the LCD. For one thing, I honestly can't see any visible increase in the quality of the display, although it's supposed to be a 920K--versus 460K on the GX1.
Also, it seems that in artificial light, the GX1 display gives a truer color rendition. The G5 is overly warm. Oh sure, I can tweak the colors/contrast/brightness settings in-camera, but it would be nice to be able to rely on its accuracy without doing so.
As far as the EVF, the one on the G5 seems fine--just as good and accurate as the GX1, whether in artificial or natural light.
I'm quite impressed with the other new features on the G5, but I wonder if anyone else has an opinion on this LCD issue? Thanks for your comments!
