As part of our image quality testing for the Panasonic GF5, we've shot our resolution chart with a Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM lens mounted.

Our results from the lab have been compared against the Panasonic GF3, Panasonic G3, Olympus E-PM1, Nikon 1 J1, Sony NEX-C3 and Samsung NX200.

If you view our crops of the resolution chart's central section at 100% (or Actual Pixels) you will see that, for example, at ISO 200 the GF5 is capable of resolving up to around 22 (line widths per picture height x100) in its highest quality JPEG files.

See a full explanation of what our resolution charts mean, and how to read them, in our noise and dynamic range tests article.

Examining images of the chart taken at each sensitivity setting reveals the following resolution scores in line widths per picture height x100:
