Re: DPR GX7 review is up!
In reply to Cipher, 5 months ago

Nice review, well written and detailed (although there are some omissions, it seems.)

Have been looking at the GX7, because it features focus peaking, wifi and a tillable vf, which are things that my current E-M5 lacks. Surely focus peaking is sth I miss very much (why Olympus doesn't offer it in a firmware upgrade is inexplicable.)

- focus peaking: pity that the review doesn't go much in depth about it, but it seems that it does its' work (except for very low light situations.)

- vf: this was the big question mark for me, and after the review still is. I will have to try out if the rainbow effect is that much obstructive in use. But it is sRGB normalized which is already very good.

- reading about the wifi capability leads me to conclude it is pretty unusable. Pity...

- IBIS: not working in video or during composing photo's doesn't bother me at all. Only preview didn't test it thoroughly… Does it work as well as E-M5?

All in all seems like a good camera. Can't wait to try it out...
