Don't forget one of the most dominating "features" of the GX7 over any other camera on the market, the ability to AF in as low as -4EV. I have searched high and low, the best competition i can find is Pentax with the K3/5II and the Canon 6D, all having -3 ratings. Oddly enough, DPR fails to mention anything about this unless i somehow missed it in their review. One would think the best low light AF on the market might garner a mention?

It's a nice feature, but one has to wonder, if you're going to AF in a low light situation like that and it goes down to -4EV, wouldn't that result in a shot that's high ISO, like ISO6400 since the light is that low?

Well you could be shooting long exposures.

Or flash. With a superb 1/320 sync, i plan on using flash often. Will likely buy a metz unit with the body when i get mine.
