Re: DPR GX7 review is up!

GX7's built-in EVF is supposed to be its USP. But the following make it more a liability than an asset.

  • Strong 'rainbow' tearing effect in EVF
  • EVF is hard to see outdoors
  • adds bulk to camera

If all that is true (GX7 users will no doubt comment if they feel otherwise) it makes the GX7 a much less attractive proposition than I thought. Having used an add-on tilting viewfinder I disagree with the reviewer who found no point to it. But if it isn't more visible than the LCD in bright light, what's the point of it? Any users care to comment?
