Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 Review - Test shots: Zoom, Contrast and Colour Review

”Here are some general test shots taken with the GF2 and lenses as stated to give an idea of performance ability when it comes to image quality, dynamic range, colour rendition and the focal range of the respective optics.”


This festive Santa image taken handheld without flash with the 14mm test lens, camera in program mode and white balance and ISO set to Auto, has produced a pleasingly colourful and moreover sharp result


A 2D image taken with the 3D lens available for the GF2 and with an early production sample of the camera in this instance. The 2D image at a default 1600×1200 pixels is noticeably soft compared with the results from regular 14mm and 14-42mm lens; more of an aide memoire than keepsake


Taken at the wideangle end of the 14-42mm kit zoom, this image betrays itself with some pixel fringing noticeable on the very top branches of the tree


An image which illustrates the vividness of the GF2’s performance when it comes to colours, which veer toward the strikingly warm as a default
