The only one of these that is even remotely a concern for me is the IBIS piece, and I don't shoot video so it's essentially as irrelevant as the latter points. I never use P and I can't imagine trying to process raw files in camera, especially when I can use the built in wifi to transfer them to my iPad.

A photograph is a creative interpretation of reality.

Your post makes sense to me.

The IBIS seems to work fine on my WA lenses (that don't have OIS).

I don't use P mode. If I did I would keep track of what both f/ and ss are doing. BUT does this issue affect flash photography? I don't know as that dimension is also new to me.

And I don't understand the "lack of in-camera RAW processing". What is that? Which cameras have that feature? Is it a new feature factor that justifies keeping "the GX7 from earning our highest recommendation"?
