Re: comparison: GX7, E-P5, NEX6, X-E1

I agree that we need to wait to know for sure about many of the camera's features, but I think the EVF comparison with the GH3 isn't meaningful.

First, the GH3 isn't Panny's most recent EVF, the G6 is, and it's been widely praised. Why the difference?  With the GH3, Panny crammed a widescreen 16:9 display and optics into the camera. The G6, and GX7, have a more normal 4:3 screen.

And several previews have already been published that say the EVF is fine, but maybe a little hard for eyeglass wearers to see the edges of the display. Worries about the EVF in the GH3 were already being raised by this point.
