Fast, accurate, reliable AF, very good jpegs, solid feeling, I also own E-M1 and I see no differences in terms of high ISO and dynamic range. The IS works perfectly, I love this camera

Somehow, I find it hard to like this camera, unlike the GH1, GX1 and now the GM1, which I always felt comfortable with right off the bat... I got the GX7 back in October because so much fuss was made about how good the sensor was and since one of my main concerns with the Lumix MFT system to-date has been the quality of their sensors (high ISO, noise, dynamic range). For the past two years, I worked mostly with two GX1’s, which I loved for their handling, compactness, good feature set and ...

This is it, the (almost) perfect m43 camera. I most appreciate the focus peakng and ibis. This lets me use my old favorite minolta and contax primes. However, 125 and longer is difficult to focus, as the viewfinder is not stabilized. Ive had the GX7 since September 2013 and used it quite a lot. Its all round excellent, and even for a decent price.  One piece of advice, don't buy cheap adaptors. My minolta 50mm 1.4 was disappointing with the fotodiox adapter, but with the metabones (~$100) it ...

I've had the GX7 for over a month now. My camera experience includes long term use of a Nikon D300, D60, D200, D90, D70, Sony RX100 II, Panasonic LX3, LX5, Canon G11, and Panasonic G1 and GH2. I've been a photography enthusiast since the late '70's. Some cameras really thrilled me when I first got them; Nikon D70, D200, D300, Panasonic LX3, Panasonic GH2, Sony RX100 II. The first day I got my GX7, I wasn't exactly overwhelmed. Functionally, it was very similar to my GH2, but arranged ...

The GX7 will be the camera, better than anything before. Better...Stronger...Faster. The Backstory: Hi everyone! This will be my first user review on this board, I hope my experience serves some purpose to those who are in the same situation I was a few months ago and people who are currently looking for a review that shares their same perspective. You could say this review has been 4 long years in the making, since the day I first got my E-PL1, so pardon my extensiveness. The PL1 was my ...

Lumix G1, having used the G6 (lovely handling IQ similar to G1) and sold it, I now have had the GX7 for 3 weeks. Having lost a lot of money on the G6 I bought a used GX7. The build is much improved, handling good and image quality much improved. Dynamic range is much better now, the G1 was pretty poor in that respect. I love it with the 20mm f1.7, as it fits in my jacket pocket and is well balanced in use. It is a little heavy however. The viewfinder worries me as it protrudes quite a lot, I ...

Bought GX-7 + 12-35/2,8 lenses, for about 2,000 euro. After day of testing: for such money you can buy much better camera. Focus fast enough, but sometimes have delays, colors good, design inconvenient, IQ is not perfect. Touchscreen changes focus point unexpectedly. Nothing groundbreaking. Right for this camera is twice less. Moderator Edit : Everyone knows that this camera is very good like other Olympus and Panasonic cameras, in fact not even the less better Micro 4/3 camera deserves ...

Smaller than I thought, and lighter. Built great, lots to use in this package. I dare say its almost too loaded considering its classic design- almost wish it had a more minimalist design personally. That said, I think its probably the best m4/3 Panasonic has made yet and I suspect  many others will think so too.  I didn't get a chance to eval the image quality yet because I don't have ACR set up to support it at this time- will get into that when I get more time with it with an extended ...
