So, I can infer the GH5S is capable approaching 14 stops of dynamic range in a FHD 1:1 pixel recording mode? I guess because they chose to oversample in FHD and so are limited to the 12-bit output. Ol, makes sense. Thanks!

No. GH5S has a pixel level DR of around 13EV in 14bit stills mode.

The listed 2048 x 1080 readout modes are subsampled from the full sensor, with heavy moire/aliasing. And GH5S does not oversample in FHD, it's pixel binned.

Ah, ok. I need to take a masterclass on CMOS sensors and Bayer patterns and all that. So those other resolutions are sub sampling and are technically possible but yield undesirable image results.

I did not know about the pixel binning in FHD. I’m a bit surprised because oversampling has noise reduction benefits.
