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. Its user interface can be a little unwieldy but has moments of genius in the ability to use the rear screen as a touch pad to set AF point when shooting with the camera to your eye.

Good for

Not so good for

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