A few days ago, we reported that the Panasonic Lumix GH3 had outscored all comers in Consumer Reports testing. Now it seems that the GH3 is coming out on top of yet another test, this one from Germany.
43Rumors posted an announcement from Panasonic Germany (Here’s the Press Release) that German Institute Stiftung Warentest gave the Panasonic Lumix GH3 the best rating of all DSLR or DSLM (mirrorless) cameras – beating out other highly acclaimed cameras like the Canon 6D and Nikon D-800!
“I speak German and know Stiftung Warentest very well, so I know that we can 100% trust them. They judged the overall quality of the camera (image quality, features and so on) and gave them the best note with 1.8 (the lower the score the better).”
Of equal note was the camera that came in second… The Panasonic Lumix G5! (I own one of these and love it)
Congratulations to Panasonic! With the Lumix GH3, they have created what is in my opinion, the best Hybrid Camera on the planet today. In the G5, they have what is technically a “mid level” camera with the ability to compete with top level models that cost hundred of dollar more. At $499 USD with the Kit Lens, the Panasonic Lumix G5 is a steal and it’s no wonder that it sits on top of Amazon’s Hot Seller’s List.
