PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 is a mirrorless camera that delivers excellent images, but it doesn't quite earn Editors' Choice honors.

  • Summary: The Panasonic GX7 is a full-featured mirrorless camera that offers very good photo and video quality, a highly customizable interface, plenty of useful features, and robust performance. It's marred by a so-so viewfinder, lack of in-camera raw conversion, and a disappointing in-body IS system.
  • Pros: Photos have pleasing color and sharpness, with little detail smudging, In-body image stabilization brings anti-shake to any lens, Well constructed, easy-to-handle body, Quick autofocus and shot-to-shot speeds, Highly customizable, Well-implemented touchscreen, Large and sharp tilting electronic viewfinder, Truly 'silent' shooting mode, Wi-Fi with NFC capability
  • Cons: In-body stabilization not available for image composition, Camera tends to use small apertures (rather than faster shutter speeds) in Program mode, No sensor-shift IS in movie mode, Strong 'rainbow' tearing effect in EVF, EVF is hard to see outdoors, adds bulk to camera, No in-camera Raw conversion, Lacks headphone and external mic ports for video shooters

Panasonic Lumix GX7

Camera Labs

  • Summary: So Panasonic took all of this on board for the GX7 and squeezed in a viewfinder along with Wifi, NFC, focus peaking, 1/8000 shutter, low-light AF, manual movie exposures, lots of controls with a high degree of customization, adjustable tone curves and auto panoramas, while surprising all of us by also including built-in stabilisation. The latter, while widely leaked in the run-up to the GX7's launch, remains a surprise every time I read or write it.
  • Pros: Relatively compact body with lots of customisable controls., Built-in and tiltable high resolution electronic viewfinder., Tilting touch-screen monitor., Built-in image stabilisation works with any lens., Fast AF that also works well in very low light conditions., Fastest shutter of 1/8000 quicker than most mirrorless., Built-in Wifi with excellent smartphone remote control., Focus peaking for stills and movies., 1080p video with full manual exposure control.
  • Cons: Viewfinder shape optimised for HD video, not stills., Stabilisation only gave 1 stop compensation in my tests., Not weather-sealed., Stabilisation not available when filming video., No microphone input or microphone accessory., Viewfinder image prone to tearing artefacts for some people., Image quality not improved over rival M4/3 models.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 review

26 November 2014
  • Excerpt: Panasonic has enjoyed a straight run of five-star reviews for its current line-up of compact system cameras (CSCs), but the GX7 might just be the best of the bunch. It replaces the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 with a slim, rangefinder-style design and enthusiast-friendly controls. It's more expensive than the GX1 was at launch, but it's also significantly better specified.

  • Summary: There's no question that the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 is a real leap forward in comparison to its predecessor, the GX1. Every area of the camera has been improved, resulting in one of the best compact system cameras available for serious photographers looking for a high-quality camera for travel or documentary photography.

  • Summary: Panasonic Lumix GX7 has been a wonderful camera and it has everything going for it – beautiful build, great handling, a high-res EVF which can tilt, an overdose of features, wireless connectivity, great image quality and so on. The silent mode, although limits some options, is a great tool for street photography enthusiasts. In retrospect, we did not really feel stunted by its limitations mode while shooting on streets.

Panasonic’s newest LUMIX is the best compact system camera yet

Good Gear Guide.au
4 September 2013
  • Summary: Panasonic’s LUMIX GX7 is the most feature-packed compact camera we’ve seen. All of these features are useful to varying degrees, but the overall package is a versatile one. The GX7 is a great compromise between the small size of a compact camera and the power of a DSLR.
  • Pros: Complete feature-set, Good image and video quality, Solid build quality
  • Cons: Viewfinder and touchscreen a perilous combo, Over-exposes photos in bright daylight, Wi-Fi is an afterthought
