I'm glad you're happy about this,

It makes you glad? Why?

but CR wouldn't know a good camera if it bit them in the butt.

You are acquainted with the testers? And their methods? Or is this just fact-free venting?

GX7 just MIGHT be the best mirrorless on the market, but I doubt they have any idea why or how it got that way.

Really? You read the article? Their reasoning and explanations cast this doubt in your mind? Interesting. Details please? Or is this more fact-free venting?

Trust their judgement on washing machines, but don't rely on their judgement on cameras.

Do you really think they use the same people and methods to test washing machines as they do to test cameras? How do you know that their washing-machine testing is reliable? Or is that also a fact-free vent?
