On G7X-ISO125-IMG_0312 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (5 comments in total)

Hm, almost exactly the same photo in the Panasonic GM 5 gallery.
This one says it was shot Oct 1, 2014.
The one in the Panasonic gallery says it was shot Nov 4, 2014.
It's a very strange coincidence that the exact same vehicles should be parked in the exact same spots over a month apart.
Was this taken in San Francisco? That might explain it; you find a parking spot there you just don't move.
The two images are VERY similar in color rendition, dynamic range, resolution...
The only difference i find is in the number of birds on the wires at the far right.
The one from Panasonic apparently indicates that it handles motion fairly well- it's got a bird in flight above the building.

The birds on the wires at the right are the only differences i find. Judging from the decorative grass in front of the insurance agency, even the wind is the same direction and speed.

While the lens appears to actually be capable or resolving some decent detail, there appears to be an issue in the rendering of subtle gradations, almost a 'posterized' effect.
Been comparing these to the Canon G7X gallery. The Canon may have a slightly less crisp lens and a little heavier hand on the noise reduction, but the subtler gradations are better preserved even with the rather remarkable dynamic range and the overall experience is much easier on the eye, a much more natural feel.
Panasonic's processing engine results have also always had this sort of 'dipped in skimmed milk' kind of quality with white showing where it shouldn't really be, something i've never cared much for. It shows up in the lady's dark clothes here and may be contributing to the washed out effect in the building.

i like the 'sorcerer's orb' very well. there is no ambiguity of the intent- one more of art than of literal representation. this is not as clear in the shot of Levantine Leopard. first impression of that was that the butterfly was likely the intended subject and the yellow blob to the right is competing for attention. but as an art piece, the abstract, soft edged yellow blob contrasted with the not only hard edged but dramatically angular butterfly holds together much better. but springtime? white and pink and sometimes yellow flowers and pale yellow-green foliage and soft light = spring. the blown dandelion blossom puts the lie to 'spring'.
now, the shot with the fresh pink flower, pale yellow-green background, soft lighting and the three very imperial-looking insects just screams spring.

with small objects, light glare can be a significant issue. i suggest trying a polarizing filter. the loss of f stops is a pain but i think you'd like the increase in detail and color saturation.
