pixelcollector: Is the tripod socket made of plastic?

Bitchy? Serious question. It looks like plastic in the photo but before trashing the thing I'd like to be sure that it is.

Would there ever be a reason to turn this off, besides the need to set it to self timer or burst mode?

the E-P5 is the direct competitor of the GX-7. Why in the world wasn't it included?

i just read the max bulb shutter is 2 minutes. If true, the p5 is vastly superior with 30 minutes. Crucial for star trail photography. Does anyone know if max bulb could be extended through firmware update?

Raist3d: Well see how good (or not) the sensor in this camera is, a Panasonic new design. Hopefully no banding. If the sensor is ballpark as good (ditto if better) as the EM-5/Pen5, I just can't see anyone in their right mind picking a Pen 5 over this model.

can't wait for a comparison of the two. I still love and maybe prefer the P5 design, and if the GX7 will force the price down it may still be a sensible choice.

pixelcollector: How were they able to implement IBIS? I read that Oly had exclusive rights to this tech or that they (pana and oly) had agreed to use different IS methods.

This camera sure packs a hefty wallop. I'll be extremely interested to see if it trumps the E-P5 by leaps and bounds or if the E-P5 will still be the camera to get, if the price drops considerably of course.

thanks for clearing that up. question still remains why they've never implemented it before. ah, actually, it makes sense if they want to focus on sales of I.S. lenses..

Panasonicus: As an owner of a G3 with which I am very pleased (apart from very poor battery life) I am open to an upgrade but not size-wise. Most of the GF series offer nothing over the G series and especially if you require a viewfinder. That this one also allows the use of Olympus lenses while retaining IS is a big deal indeed. I suspect the only wasp in the paste will be the price. Aside from that possible deal breaker, this looks like the best yet from Panasonic--especially if it is as small as my much loved G3.
Update: just read the specs--its quite a lot larger and heavier than the G3. Pity--what is the real advantage here other than more direct controls? No fully articulated screen is a negative.

I am using a G3 and thought my next upgrade would be the E-p5. I'm also shocked if it's true that the GX7 is much larger.

Fully articulated screen will be missed very much indeed.

GodSpeaks: This is the camera the GX1 SHOULD have been.

From a list of features, it blows the Sony NEX out of the water as NEX is so feature poor. Time for Sony to up their game.

Now I can ditch my NEX-6 and go all in on micro four thirds.

to be fair, the NEX 7 is an impressive camera and has been out for quite some time now. Pana are doing something amazing here but they took their time indeed.

In reply to:

rponiarski: My concern is a successor to the E-P3. I have an E-P2 and skipped the P3 as it isn't that big an upgrade. I was hoping for an E-P5, with the OMD sensor in a higher end PEN body. The E-PL5 is nice, but I like the handling of the E-P series, with multiple control dials and a hefty, quality feel to it. Maybe at CES...

it is incredibly disappointing that Olympus have chosen to ditch the PEN that started the whole thing. I'm not holding my breath for the E-P5 to be introduced later. It seems they're trying to force people to get the expensive E-M5 which has proper build quality and dials like the e-p1/2/3.

pixelcollector: where is the flippin' E-P4/5 ?
this is not cutting it. cheap looking design, subpar lcd res.

disgusting marketing ploys. the om-d is a different beast altogether. How are you going to separate that VF?

It's just a mystery to me how they could kill off the line that started it all, with properly built housings and plenty of dials.
It's a right crime that they put that ancient 12mp sensor in the otherwise superb e-p3.
