16 megapixels | 3 screen | Four Thirds sensor
dpreview conclusion

The Panasonic G7 is an impressive all-rounder, combining solid image quality, impressive autofocus performance and 4K (UHD) capability into a compact body with extensive external controls.

Not so good for

Users wanting simplicity from their shooting experience. Photographers obsessed with absolute image quality.
