The GX7 viewfinder is killing me!
2 months ago

As a street photographer I find it impossible to use the viewfinder in the GX7. It's just too slow to turn on. When I pick it up to my eye to shoot I actually see it turn on and there's no way I can make the image that way. I really hate it and it's destroying my interest in using this camera for the street. I might as well use a GM1 if I can only use the back LCD screen since it's so much lighter. Any solutions to this? I don't see how you can just keep the screen on all the time.
