After years as a Silent shoot & commercial photography work cam (and personal cam too) , this is now in Semi retirement as only gets ued for Theatrical costume shoots and its still up to the job !! It`s done Over 36,000 shots and is getting brassed corners on the body but lens/sensor is still clean and working beautifully. full marks for longevity, predictability and image quality ! ...... over 5 years old and this thing is still hanging in there ! . Still is a very compact emergency backup to the DSLRs . OK, It`d not score 5 stars if released today - but it retains it for its longevity and reliability
Superb advances in Shutter design (which are likely better than relying on EFC-S) and 4K Photo ability as well as a welcoming removal of the AA filter stretch out the ageing 16Mp sensor a bit longer .. for me as a GM5 replacement, it`s about right.. decent flash sync and proper command dials as well as a screen you can actually see without a magnifying glass are a massive bonus, I never had an issue with the GX7 EVF, only the Shock issue with the 14-140-II which the GX80 fixes ........ Nice cam, well made, fast reliable AF and decent ergonomics.......... Would have got 5 stars if it had the 20mp sensor, OLED EVF and Mic jack (all of which it should have had)
