Olympus E-PL1 Review
Compared to... Panasonic DMC-GF1
Studio scene comparison (RAW)
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). Camera settings as per previous pages.

4.4 MB JPEG (4000 x 3000)
With the exception of a very slightly different tone curve, it's clear that the two cameras are producing essentially the same image with indistinguishable levels of detail. The hints of moiré seen in the JPEG comparisons of these two cameras suggested both have very light anti-aliasing filters, this test suggests they're very similar indeed.
