Yes, the lack of Panasonic replacement batteries for the GX7 is really silly and frustrating.  Right up there with no all-black GX7 bodies for the US (got my black body from B&H though with the kit lens and 20/1.7 II bundle - should be here on Friday).

I just bought two Power2000 batteries (1200mAh) that claim they are chipped such that the batter level indicator in the GX7 will be accurate - we'll see.  I'm expecting the #of shots with the GX7 to be similar to my GH2 - i.e., it won't last terribly long under heavy use.

At least I'll have one OEM battery to compare the Power2000 batteries to.
