G1 review in AP

As hinted recently the the review is positive in AP delivered to me today. The highlight for me was the dynamic range test of 11ev which was comparable to the Sony Alpha 900 and which bettered the EOS50D, Nikon D300 and D90. Resolution was impressive at low ISO.

Re: G1 review in AP

My only concern is how AP do their DR test, but of course they are comparing like with like.

But DR changes with ISO and this isn't clear in the way AP does tests.

But in the end it's what Angela thought of the pictures that really counts, and she clearly likes the G1

PS I think the E-30, which uses the same sensor, has even better image quality, so it's all looking good at the moment!

Re: G1 review in AP

This doesn't quite agree with the test results produced by Imaging Resource which actually places it below the E510, itself being well short of the A900. I don't profess to know the ins and outs of DR measurement (though the IR testing appears to be consistent), and I haven't read the AP article, so you'd need to form your own opinions. Personally I am looking for a bit of an improvement over the E510 sensor as I find this frustrating at times. So, it'll be interesting to see the findings of real-world tests with a production sample.

Have you got any feel for this yet, Ian?
