GX7's built-in EVF is supposed to be its USP. But the following make it more a liability than an asset.

  • Strong 'rainbow' tearing effect in EVF
  • EVF is hard to see outdoors
  • adds bulk to camera

A score of of 79 is more than generous.

I think these points are mit really valid. The EVF is the Nest in the market, next to the VF4 probably but with even less delay and higher res.

Rainbow effect is almost not noticable and definately much less pronounced than on previous EVFs.

And bulk? Wth they are calling that big ugly thing on top of the M5 then?

Why exactly are they not valid? You mean the GX7 EVF has no tearing, is not hard to see outdoors, and the protruding EVF does not add bulk?

At least from DPR's point of view, the bulk of the EVF on the GX7 is must more prominent than the bulk of the EVF on the E-M5, E-M1 and E-P5 (VF4).
