For GX7 users -- what do you like/not like

I'm contemplating a GX7. I've got a trip for a couple of weeks out to Utah, and was considering a GX7 as my body. I'm not going to list the lenses, as I am hoping to get info on the body, not the lenses, but in general, I'll have a wide, a telephoto zoom and a fast prime.

For GX7 users -- what do you like/not like about the GX7?

I have a NEX6 now, and I love:

  • EVF
  • tilting LCD
  • built in grip
  • pop-up flash that I can tilt back with my finger
  • some nice external controls
  • clean blacks.

What I don't like are the terrible native lenses.

Can the GX7 pretty much replace the above (with, of course, m43's better lenses). Are there particular issues about the GX7 that you DON'T like? (p.s. I don't need to know about DOF differences -- I'm aware of those)

I need to make a purchase this week, so any help is appreciated.
