GX7 vs. E-P5

Advantages of the GX7:

- Tilting built-in EVF (should be better for left-eye shooters as well)

- Better Grip

- Software correction in body w/IBIS (new combination - nice for shooting jpegs with pana lenses)

- Better High ISO (educated guess based on rumors and reports + image samples. Look at this amazingly clean 3200 ISO image: http://img.photographyblog.com/reviews/panasonic_lumix_gx7/photos/panasonic_lumix_gx7_12.jpg

- Resolution (no AA-filter (+?). Looks the business to me: http://img.photographyblog.com/reviews/panasonic_lumix_gx7/photos/panasonic_lumix_gx7_07.jpg

- Tilting flash (guessing this can be fixed in a that position like on the GX1 as well)

- Low Light AF (down to - 4Db)

- Magnesium Die Cast

- Better video specs

- Improved Color saturation (according to Panasonic)

- 9 Fn-buttons that can be assigned to ANY function

- Electronic shutter /silent mode

- Better WIFI

- Better Peaking

Advantages of the E-P5:

- 5-axis IBIS

- Design (I like it better)

- Live Bulb mode

- Better jpegs

What do you think?

To me the GX7 looks pretty good. I've got mine on pre order..
