Here in my town there come junk stuff across the nearby border, I'm sure that all these cameras are not in working condition and some has minor defect that is repairable. There in the port city of Karachi we have skilled illiterate technical persons those make go these junk stuff even by replacement of parts. So I borrow one, read the review and test shots for few days then bargain over price. The micro 4/3rd has the charm of its mount that accepts from other brand and I have collect few of ...

I own two of these from 2014 or 2015, both second hand. Both are dead now. And I'm bidding again on one - as it's dirty cheap now. The good. 16 mpix is more than enough (I had 24 mpix full frame berofe). Camera is perfectly ballanced for street photo. S-AF focus is very fast and reliable, but C-AF not so good. It is heavily packed with features. And with f/1.7 primes it is very compact an fun to use. People are often complaining about the focus speed of Lumix 20mm f/1.7 - guys, put it on GX7. ...

A friend and I both own this camera. I got mine when it first came out in 2013 and he a couple of years later. He had the rear dial replace and mine got flakier and flakier—I can't even set the aperture in A anymore. Since mine is five years old I'm opting to replace it with a used GX8 for $500 which I figure is about twice the cost to fix it. I'm hoping the GX8 is more reliable; since it's weather sealed that's likely. The more logical update to the GX7 is the GX9. I'm rating it 3.5 because ...

Bought this camera. Very good overall image quality with the higher quality M 4/3 lenses. This camera is so adaptable and loaded with almost too many features. Easy to travel with, handle and use. Wish the image quality was a little closer to some of the lower prices APS-C competition.

Bought it used for 330€. As an object I find this camera immensely satisfying. It's a small, well crafted and dense chunk of metal where every square and cubic cm is put to good use. Very logical, no frills, no nonsense. Of course the switch from Sony R1's superb ergonomics to more cramped quarters has taken some getting used to, but I quickly came to like the GX7 and catch myself every day casting admiring glances at it. (My trusty old R1 has been resting on the shelf since I got this 8 ...

I got this camera when realized that my iPhone 5 was not good enough to take decent pictures of my new born baby. I was looking for few things in one package: 1. Compact, I did not want to get another DSLR, I had one of the Canon's and was not using it for the big part because of the size. 2. Built-in viewfinder. I find that I take better pictures when I use viewfinder, so for me it was a must feature. 3. Fast focus. I understood that mirror-less camera will not be as fast as good DSLR, but I ...

I have been a solid Nikon shooter before this camera. I have used 4 Nikon cameras the last of which was a Nikon D800. I cannot say this camera gives the same pixel resolution as the D800 but when you put a good lens on it it is close enough. This also is my 4th micro 4/3 camera. I have started with GF1 (GX1, GX7) and now E-M1. I was always ok with the 16mp. The previous Nikon I had was a D700 and that was a 12mp camera, and I have even printed many 1m x 1.5m prints, and had really nice ...

I have had my new GX7 for three weeks now.  When I saw the news and excited responses about the new GX8, I started thinking "I should send my 7 back and get by with my Canon G12 until I can order the GX8." After reviewing the specs and price of the GX8, I decided that my GX7 is just fine. Firstly, my GX7, with the 14 - 42 kit lens, takes great photos: Lily 2. The eye level viewfinder is allowing me to see the shot when the back LCD is washed out in bright sunlight. 3.  I would not want to be ...

It took me about 2 months to decide a new camera. I am very pleased with almost everything. Some things could be better, but that stands for every camera on the market. GX7 is easy going in ergonomics, weight, ui, image quality. The only thing I would complian about, is that it can be hard to operate with one hand.
