This afternoon, I've been doing some file maintenance and copying files from an old drive to a new one. In the process, I came across some photographs I captured in December 2006 with my then-new DMC-L1 and I must say that I'm quite surprised by how good they look ... better, in some ways -- I think, anyway -- than those captured with the m4/3 cameras that replaced it starting back in April, 2009.
I know the primary reason I switched formats was for the larger file size and newer processing engine, so I don't think I ever directly compared the IQ of the L1 with the G1 (and subsequently, the E-P1 and E-PL1), so I can't tell if these photos are the rule or the exception to the rule.
Either way, I must say that I am indeed impressed with the results I achieved back then using such ancient and primitive technology. Who knew?
