In reply to:

pixelcollector: advantage over my 2 year old pen:
swivel LCD, weather sealing.
nearly all other features are identical. why is this camera so massive? bulkier camera = higher price tag?

Video improvements all you can come up with? Video features are a nice bonus on stills cameras, not core essentials.

laughable.

In reply to:

bernardf12: The only reason I don't like this camera is because it doesn't have a tilting screen. The flip out screens require too many actions to get to the tilting position. And you have to go through these actions repeatedly through your day shooting. Others may like this, but it's not for me because I use the tilted screen quite often.

do you use the tilt screen in portrait mode?

i didn't think so.

Thomas Kachadurian: A solid camera made better. Who can complain.

I'm happy you're all assuming that this is not a matter of simple cost-saving. I am not buying it. I think Oly are pulling an Apple and have a plan to introduce new tech as slowly as possible, much like iPhone development. Old tech, new design, market as revolutionary.

Happy with my e-p5 but not happy with >iso 1600.

In reply to:

pixelcollector: And again not a word on, not even an image of the fully articulated screen under 'body & design'. Is this such a minor detail to you? There was no mention of it in the preview either.

i've been waiting for one on an Oly body for years. Not going to sell my e-p5 for this, considering the sensor is the same. Let's hope this isn't a one time feature..

In reply to:

donCortizone: I liked the original E-M5, but didn't love it. I'd really like to give this version a shot since it looks like they've refined the controls quite a bit. The sensor, however, kills it for me. No way would I choose to go back to image quality of this kind at this price point.

back from what?

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?

In reply to:

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.

In reply to:

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..

In reply to:

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.
