If I was going to be using smaller lenses like the 12,14,17,20,45mm primes I'd go for the GX7. If using larger lenses like many of the zooms then I'd probably go for the G6 because of the nicer grip. Remember if you go for the G6 make sure you get a stabilised lens for the video.

I'd still want to try them in a shop just to see what they're like in the hand. Ergonomics can be very personal.

A stabilized lens is also required for the GX7 during video.  For some odd reason, IBIS is disabled during shooting video in the GX7.  Does anyone have a good reason why IBIS is disabled during video?  I'm sure the reason is similar to why Panasonic didn't initially release the black version of the GX7 in the U.S. :rolleyes:
