It has any of the GX7 features, the same level of IBIS, it just doesn't have the panasonic video capability or the ability to mount PDAF optomised lenses... On the other hand it's at least $500 cheaper which you can put towards a 17mm F/1.8 25mm F/1.8 a 12-42 F/.28 a 35-100 F/2.8 or etc...

If you are indeed considering the GX7 purely from a photo perspective then you can consider spending the extra $500 or a bit more on an ultra sharp lens rather than the kit  lens that comes with a GX7 and by the time you spend $1500 for the 25mm kit you will have enough money to buy the Olympus 12-32 F/2.8 which is an infinitely more versatile lens anyway. Even if it's not quite as bright, it's actually still pretty darn sharp.
