I want to thank everyone for the information provided. I have a question very important which camera has live exposure preview what i mean is which camera shows you the actual changes you are making (like changing aperture or shutter speed) before taking the picture?

The E-M10 shows you this I suppose but you really need to look at the histogram (which you can have 'live' in the viewfinder) because these cameras 'gain up' in low light and don't always give you a totally accurate representation of the photo you will get. Like on an SLR you have to select depth of field preview to see what you're getting in terms of differential focus. Compact cameras do this naturally in live view. I presume the GX7 is the same.--
