Nice test thanks. As for the OP. If you think the GX7 is too expensive or the GM1 should come body only thats great but who really cares. This gentlemans test adds something to the mix and our understanding of photography and photography equipment. The trouble with much of this forum is it's whiners who have nothing to add to dialogue.

Well..if THAT's your attitude then I've certainly nothing more to say to you.. but it SHOULD be the case that manufacturers take at least some notice of prospective buyers thoughts.. we ARE these days a lot more in a Buyers Market than probably for many earlier years..money is tighter and in UK at least, Sales have to be earned right now.. and forcing prospective Buyers to pay a very high price for something which includes a chunk of value that is NOT needed by choice..is not the best way of going about it.
You carry on with your own little World of how it should be... but very many do consider just WHAT they are getting for the price they are asked to pay - and if it's not right.. a purchase is not made.
It's NOT whining..it's constructive thoughts and hopes as a BUYER .. any Manufacturer that ignores that nowadays does so at his peril.. we are not all 'made of money' ..

  • why should we HAVE to buy a lesser quality lens on the GM-1 to acquire the Body, for the benefits that does give...

Staffordshire, UK

The GM1 is out of stock in lots of places so obviously yes, we are in a "buyers market". in a market where PLENTY of people buy the GM1 it seems (just being humorous).
Also, if the lens is that pricey that it would amount to a considerable discount to buy 'body-only', then resell the lens and make your own discount? ebay can give you very accurate 'past prices' for items.
If the body only price after operation above is still too high for your taste, fine. But not sure that warrants a thread. There are PLENTY of things I find too expensive relative to my particular needs.
