does any of the new Panasonic's focus down to -3EV. I doubt they even go to -2EV.

I have an EM1 and a GX7. While there are things I like more about the EM1 AF (face detection, for example, where the "near eye" focus option is just incredibly effective), the GX7 is notably more sure footed focussing in low light, particularly very low light, where the EM1 gives up well before the GX7. This is assuming the same lenses and apertures of course...

Which is not to say the EM1 is anything other than excellent in low light - I haven't seen anything like the OP on this. But the GX7 is better...
