GX7 - build & button stiffness (from P5 owner)
Nov 30, 2013

Getting to know the GX7. Will run concurrently with Olympus EP5.

A quick question - I never thought I'd complain about wheels being too stiff but the GX7 is too stiff - especially the mode dial, but to a lesser degree also the front dial.  Usable obviously but takes a lot of conscious effort and I'm not a weak guy...:) Does it get a bit looser after use?

I am brand agnostic but I have too say that the GX7 feels very plastic after the P5. Even the PL5 feels more solid. The P5 really has a luxurious built like a vault feel that is simply impeccable. Again, I am brand agnostic and this is not to criticize Pany as a whole - just that the GX7 feels plastic.  The large grip does grip easier than the P5.

Thanks,

MTMT
