A wonderful value camera with great ergonomics
6

I was looking to buy either a Olympus OMDEM5 or a GX7 … but bought this with a 14-140 lens for practically the price of the lens. I had assumed I would sell it and trade "up" but after using it i changed my mind. Its high ISO performance is marginally behind these high end models but its viewfinder is BETTER than the GX7 and equal to the EM5. Its handling is IMHO better than either. It is not weatherproof and is slightly plasticky. BUT it is well built. Feels grew in the hand. Has a great fully articulating screen. It has a great touch screen much better than the G5. It is very easy to use has a useful Q menu. It is small but not fiddly. My finding is i have fallen in love with it by accident and would thoroughly recommend it. For more information read the Cameralabs review which says it all
