A GX7 would give you a better grip and in camera panos... More expensive but there's been some good sub $650 deals on the body-only option lately.

Absolutely. The GX7 + 20mm would be a good jumping off point. Then add either the 14-42mm II + 45-150mm combo ($400 +/-) or the 14-140mm II. For the sake of simplicity and fewer lens changes, the GX7 + 20mm + 14-140mm might be a better, simpler all-around kit. You get low light and moderate wide-angle with the 20mm and 10x zoom and decent telephoto capabilities with the 14-140mm II, all in a not-too-big package.

The GX7's silent mode is great for stealth shooting and I'd imagine great for grabbing pix of a snoozing squeezer. It also has excellent video!
