DxOMark published their Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85 sensor review and test results: The new Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85 mirrorless camera achieved an overall DxOMark sensor score of 71 points, with a combination of 22.8 bits color sensitivity, 12.5 EV dynamic range, and 656 ISO low-light score. Attaining a DxOMark score of 71 points, the Panasonic DMC-G85 sensor is one of best performing Micro Four Thirds sensors, just behind the 20.3MP Panasonic GX8 and the 16MP Panasonic GH4.
From DxOMark Conclusion:
Panasonic’s latest DSLR-style Lumix DMC-G80/G85 is certainly an attractive blend of ergonomics, features and performance. As for sensor performance alone, the G80/85 sensor delivers impressive image quality overall. Indeed, it is not dissimilar to the 20.3 MP sensor in the high-end GX8. Perhaps that’s one reason why we’ve yet to see the 20.3MP unit used more widely. Sensor performance is of course just one aspect when weighing up the pros and cons of a new camera, or camera system where other factors such as lens choice, physical size and, of course, individual camera features and ergonomics must be taken into consideration before making a decision.
In addition, the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85 mirrorless camera achieved an impressive 84% overall score and Gold Award from the experts at DPReview.
