Almost perfect vacation camera ... ?

My 8-yr old GX7 is still great. Have not been using it much at home. Using Fuji more at home. But my Panasonic GX7 is surprisingly good (still).

Compare to Fuji X100F, GX7 is better in three ways:

1. More comfortable grip

2. Image stabilization

3. Tilting LCD panel.

Having the joystick to move focus points, built in ND filter and quiet leaf shutter like X100F would make it much much better, but the GX7 with the 20mm lens is proving to be more handy than X100F.  It's just surprising after almost a year of not using it.  I was thinking about selling it, but I think I just changed my mind.  The grip is so good on GX7, I just keep reaching for it instead of my Fuji.
