3 comments to Panasonic GX1 vs. Sony NEX 5N vs. Olympus E PL3

  • Neat comparison…if it wasn’t for the fact that the selection of lenses for the NEX system is poor to say the least…so yes the camera is potentially a winner (if you can cope with the handling and absurd body/lens size ratio) but only when mount conversion rings will be available…

    On paper the NEX camera is the clear winner but I will wait for tests results for the GX1 to prove otherwise.

    In a issue of What Digital Camera magazine, the Panasonic GH2 produced excellent results with the Micro 4/3 sensor. The GX1 uses that same sensor. Another advantage of the Micro 4/3 is the depth of available lenses. The NEX has limited range of lenses and all are bulky to tote around. Another plus for the GX1(despite the lower resolution) is the Touch interface. The NEX 5N has a touch interface but not as good as the GX1 in terms of usability. The GX1 allows you to use physical buttons, the touch screen or a mix to get that perfect picture.

    I am not bashing the NEX. I owned a NEX 5. It was an excellent camera. But the interface was not that good. The lack of a Hotshoe comprised its all-around capability. The non-availability of a medium zoom lens limited its shooting potential.

    The GX1 may sacrifice some picture quality (the GH2 and G3 test results show that the sensor produces good pictures up to ISO3200 which is the highest ISO that I shoot with my Canon 550D) but the depth of lenses, available Hotshoe, and Touch Interface may mitigate what it lacks.

    I have Sony NEX 5N and Panasonic G3, Panasonic G3 uses same sensor as Panasonic GH2, The image quality of Sony NEX is Excellent, I get really very low noise in high ISO shot, the bigger sensor of Sony NEX gives more dynamic range and DOF (Depth of Field).
