1. ....the GX7 will most likely have the same sensor as the G6 which appears to be the same sensor as in the G5 which is not as good as the sensor being used in all current-model Olympus m43 cameras.

2.....I wouldn’t assume that the Panasonic IBIS is any good until thoroughly tested.

3. .... I wouldn’t assume that the GX7 thumbwheel is going to be any better than that just because it costs a thousand dollars, and not a quality thumbwheel like Olympus has on its best m43 cameras.

4. ..... I sort of fixed that problem by using a Tiffen 52mm Haze 2A filter and appropriate step-up rings.

5...... If history repeats itself, those who are patient will may very well be able to buy the GX7 for less than $500 within a year. ....

Very low S/N above.

Signal will become evident with use of the GX7 over the next days, weeks, months.

Noise will probably continue.

Double, double toil and trouble;  Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
