it appears they went "cheapo" on the EVF.

Highest resolution of any EVF

Best colour of any EVF

Large EVF image, bigger than direct competitor EM5

Some compromise on 'tearing' due to the field sequential technology that delivers the above advantages. However this 'tearing' is not apparent when holding the camera still or slowly moving while making video: it is only noticeable when wildly whipping the camera around like a geek who wants to check out this 'problem'. Even then, dpr seem to be exaggerating: Amateur Photographer was aware of it but wrote, "but I have to say the GX7's EVF coped very well with this, with no tearing as I moved the camera around the scene." That is a very good trade-off to me and I would take it over the VF4 or EM5.

This is 'el cheapo'? I don't think so!
