Panasonic Lumix GX9 review - Quality

Quality

To measure and compare the noise levels on the Lumix GX9, I shot the following scene in RAW+JPEG mode at every ISO value and took 100% crops from each for the table lower on the page. JPEGs are straight out of the camera, while RAW files were processed in Adobe Camera RAW using sharpening of 50 / 0.5 / 36 / 10, and with noise reduction disabled to really see what’s going on behind the scenes.
