GX7 ergonomics are awful

Well I have had the GX7 for a few months now and have a real love hate relationship with it.

It is a very capable camera and produces excellent images even in terrible conditions, but is truly awful to use when out and about.

I think it must have been designed for smartphone users and not photographers.

I would dearly love the GX7 internals inside Panasonics 1st generation G1, now that would really be close to being the ultimate photography tool.

Don't say, get a G6, or a GH3, because neither have all the clever bits inside that the GX7 does. Why oh why did Panasonic stick it inside such a restrictive body?

I write this as a warning to prospective GX7 buyers. It's a great camera, but very fiddly and frustrating when out shooting 'serious stuff' in a professional environment.
