What is the most you would pay for a GM7?

The first GM camera, the GM1 was a miniaturized GX7, trimmed of many convenience features but having the same high image quality and build quality. And there were plenty of people on this forum who loved it, and bought the only slightly larger GM5 to have a built in EVF.

Many of those people would love to see an updated GM camera from Panasonic. This camera would be an upgrade from the GM5, and would have a 20MP sensor, a better EVF, two control wheels, and all the latest software features. It might even have some sort of flip screen, although I doubt there would be a built in flash given the size constraints of a miniaturized camera.

The one thing is would definitely have is the high build quality that sets the GM series apart from the GF series. Panasonic even made a few really great lenses expressly with the GM camera in mind (both kit zoom lenses plus the compact 15mm f/1.7... all three were designed for the smaller body.)

Evidently, the GM series didn't sell very well because there has been no upgrade since 2014's GM5. Many suspect the reason for this was the high price.

So my question is.... if there was such a camera created by Panasonic today, how much would you be willing to pay for it?

around $500. A small camera should have a small price.

around $700. I'd pay that much for a mini GX8

around $900. Yes, but only if it really was small and really was great.

$1,500 or more. But only if Leica rebranded it as a Leica and it had a red dot on it. And then it would need a nice brown leather case included, a three year warranty, and a copy of Lightroom.
