Re: DPR GX7 review is up!

Nice review, well written and detailed (although there are some omissions, it seems.)

Have been looking at the GX7, because it features focus peaking, wifi and a tillable vf, which are things that my current E-M5 lacks. Surely focus peaking is sth I miss very much (why Olympus doesn't offer it in a firmware upgrade is inexplicable.)

- focus peaking: pity that the review doesn't go much in depth about it, but it seems that it does its' work (except for very low light situations.)

- vf: this was the big question mark for me, and after the review still is. I will have to try out if the rainbow effect is that much obstructive in use. But it is sRGB normalized which is already very good.

- reading about the wifi capability leads me to conclude it is pretty unusable. Pity...

- IBIS: not working in video or during composing photo's doesn't bother me at all. Only preview didn't test it thoroughly… Does it work as well as E-M5?

All in all seems like a good camera. Can't wait to try it out...
