Should I buy a used GX7 instead of GX85 or G85 ?

Other than the video, the GX7 actually seems to be better than the GX85 - EVF (?), flash sync, shutter speed.

But what about the sensor? Surely same/similar IQ as GX85 or G85? IBIS only slightly less effective than GX85?

Or am I missing something here? Shutter shock perhaps - but was it hyped or really a serious issue/deal breaker?

The lenses I will likely mount will be the 15 mm, 20 mm, 25 f.14, 35-100 f4-5.6.

And specifically, what would you say to these offers? Price is a major issue for me as I will also be buying some of these lenses with the body.

Should I try to get some kind of warranty? Does KEH extensively inspect the bodies first before they put them up for sale? I have no experience buying used and would appreciate any feedback and recommendations particularly about the GX7. Obviously, if I get the newer bodies I'll just wait for a deal to come my way (but then I'll have to cut back on getting the lenses, which I really don't want to do).
