  • The new rangefinder-styled Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 compact system camera gets a lot of things absolutely right, offering intuitive handling, lots of customisation options, solid weather-proofed build quality, and an excellent OLED viewfinder and rear screen, but some of the headline-grabbing features don't live up their full potential, while both the camera and its price have become somewhat inflated.


  • - It’s a Micro Four Thirds camera that doesn't offer the small-size benefits that are often associated with this style of sensor.
    - AF performance is great too.
    - Image quality is great too.
    - The Panasonic Lumix GX8 produces the best RAW image quality we’ve seen from a Micro Four Thirds camera.
    - Burst performance is superb, and offers several options.


  • What many will want to know is whether the Lumix GX8 is worth its four-figure asking price. Its on-board viewfinder is a competition killer so, with that in mind, the answer is a resounding yes. However, its arrival later down the line than the larger-body Fujifilm X-T1 and its cheaper X-T10 cousin may deter some buyers. The Lumix does have the better autofocus system though, both in terms of speed and number of useful options available.


  • The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 is the fifth Panasonic stills camera to offer 4K video and photo shooting, following in the footsteps of the GH4, LX100, FZ1000 and CM1 models. "Introducing 4k to everyone" is the marketing angle that Panasonic are taking with the G7, and we'd agree that this DSLR-like, mid-range compact system camera is the best suited of all those products to expand the appeal of 4K to a wider audience, especially as it now offers additional 4K photo modes.


  • While the G7's design and build may lack the excitement of cameras like the Fuji X-T10, it has a very well-rounded feature set, with a high-quality OLED viewfinder, a vari-angle touchscreen and Wi-Fi connectivity. Image quality is also high.


  • Let's not beat about the bush; Panasonic's Lumix G7 is nearly the perfect interchangeable-lens camera for the majority of users. It's well-built, fairly compact and light, very fast, takes beautiful photos, is gifted in video (4K/UHD!), offers great customizability... It's hard to think of any flaws! All we'd say is that, because Panasonic was so keen that its G7 should do everything well, it perhaps offers a few too many options... Not much of a criticism, really!.


  • Smaller, lighter and better looking than its predecessor, the new Panasonic Lumix GF7 is an that's particularly well-suited to its target audience of smartphone/entry-level compact camera owners looking for better image quality and more features.
    The GF7's increased focus on taking better selfies is no gimmick, with the tilting screen and a range of genuinely useful modes on offer to make it easier to take them, improve them and share them.


  • Familiar fantastic Panasonic image quality in a fun, light and easy-to use body with a tilting touchscreen and Wi-Fi.


  • The Panasonic Lumix GF7 gets plenty right, delivering an affordable, easy-to-use entry-level system that's not trying to reinvent the wheel, but build upon the series' heritage. Solid image quality in good light, a decent autofocus system that's hard to beat, improved Wi-Fi and, of course, that tilt-angle selfie screen are all successes in their own right.


  • The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 is an ambitious compact camera with a big sensor, a wide-aperture lens, and 4K video recording, but it falls just short of top honors.


  • The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 is the most capable compact camera that we've ever reviewed, offering a mouth-watering combination of cutting edge technology, excellent image quality, and intuitive handling. There are still a few downsides - most notably the lack of a touchscreen or articulated LCD and a rather narrow control ring - but the new LX100 manages to pull off the trick of being both a technological tour-de-force and a camera that's a veritable joy to shoot with.


  • There may be smaller interchangeable lens cameras, but the LX100 is a joy to use. It gives you bags of control and produces high quality images. Just beware of flare when the sun is near the edge of the frame.


  • - Body materials feel a little plasticky compared to the Sony RX10.
    - Connector compartment door is fiddly to open and close.
    - Smartphone app used with built-in WiFi is a bit clunky and unituitive.
    - Plenty of dedicated, customizable controls keep you out of the menu system.
    - Bright, versatile 25-400mm eq. f/2.8-4 lens with very good optical performance is incredibly fun to shoot with.


  • The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a formidable still and video camera thanks to a big 1-inch sensor and 4K recording capability.


  • The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a premium bridge camera for a premium price. And yet, for anyone who requires 4K-video shooting without the need to change lenses, the FZ1000 is a so far unique product within its bridge camera class. But it’s not just about video; as that one-inch sensor and broad focal range equivalent to 24-400mm in 35mm film terms further attests: as it stands Panasonic’s latest bridge camera is arguably its most ‘future proofed’ yet.
