On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 Review preview (604 comments in total)

This camera is very tempting, especially with it's silent mode compared to my GF-1 which makes such a loud noise that it's very offputting.

What's more offputting, though, is the depreciation on these m4/3 bodies. My GF-1 cost about £600 three years ago and now goes for £80, which in itself represents a bargain but for an early adopter that's dreadful.

Would I notice a huge leap in image quality from a first generation m4/3 to the latest models? Silence aside, that's the other thing that would make me consider this. Given how quickly these cameras fall in value, perhaps I need to stop myself and do the intelligent thing by waiting a year or so!

Like many, I can't help but be sceptical about the motivations of these esteemed photographers.

The camera may well be ahead of the mobile curve by some margin, but their comments seem rather over-enthusiastic.

I wonder what could have caused such excitement??

Mikhail Tal: What's so gorgeous about these photos? They aren't nearly as vibrant, sharp, and contrasty as modern digital photos. They look just as dated as anything else from a bygone ear. Film is dead.

Ear ear!

On a serious note, having colour available turns these photos into a window to the past. Black and white is fine and has it's place, but generally speaking colour really makes an image come alive.

biancmb: I would have loved to upgrade my 60D to the 70D, in order to gain more resolution and maybe a camera that has a better shutter-noise (one that does sound like a shutter, not like a lashed wiggly sole). But after your review (preview) I am really not convinced of the image quality offered.

The shutter sounds on my 550D and moreso my GF1 are pretty loud. What would be quieter alternatives (apart from a pinhole camera)?

My Panasonic GF-1 makes a heck of a noise when it takes a picture, and as a MFT camera surely that's mirrorless? The shutter is very loud in that case..I wonder if any of the subsequent models or the Olympus ones are quieter?
