Studio scene comparison (JPEG)

This is our standard studio scene comparison shot taken from exactly the same tripod position. Lighting: daylight simulation, >98% CRI. Crops are 100%. Ambient temperature was approximately 22°C (~72°F).

Panasonic DMC-G1 vs. Canon EOS 450D

Camera settings:

  • Panasonic DMC-G1: Olympus Zuiko 50mm F2.0, Aperture Priority, ISO 100
    JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Default Parameters (Standard), Self-Timer
     
  • Canon EOS 450D: Canon 50 mm F1.4 lens, Aperture Priority, ISO 100
    JPEG Large/Fine, Manual WB, Default Parameters (Normal), Self-Timer

3.7 MB JPEG (4272 x 2848)

In many respects the output of the two cameras is very similar, with a hint of color moire appearing on the medals in crop three, but the sharpness of the G1 image is really very impressive. To what extent this is due to in-camera sharpening should be revealed when we compare the two camera in RAW mode (but the jagged edges on the paperclips would seem to imply it). Those artifacts aside, it's hard to describe the G1's output as anything other than very impressive.

I still like to have my G1 as a walk-around tool, for just the photograph by accident. the kitlens still performs well, even with the distortions, but therefore PTlens comes in way handy, all in all, even 2014 a good walk-by setup for the unexpected shot.
