Summary: I was looking for a camera that I could throw in my bag and keep with me at all times. This is the one. It is compact, light weight, easy to use and produces beautiful images. This thing is tiny with the added benefit of having an EVF and interchangeable lenses. No more ditching my DSLR and just using my phone.
Summary: As advertised. Solidly built advanced machine for those who want more than a point and shoot. The internal stabilization meant a lot to me as opposed to lens stabilization as I have a number of olympus primes. Love the form of this camera.
Excerpt: I moved to this from a five year old Canon T1i. I haven't sold my Canon stuff and love Canon glass..... A lot of what follows is probably due to 5 years of camera technology being brought upon me all at once, and may not be m43 specific. If you buy new bodies every year, you will have a different perspective. The GX7 is so much fun to shoot. Perfect ergonomics. Its just big enough to be comfortable in my larger hands.
Excerpt: This camera is as perfect as a camera gets for me! The Construction is top notch with a cast metal frame. It has a real quality feel to it. The GX7 focus peaking implementation is the best I have seen. The Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) is bright and adjustable. It is the only viewfinder of all the micro 4/3 cameras that allows me to see the entire image without vignetting while wearing my glasses. The GX7 is one of the most ergonomic cameras I have used.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
it mounts all kinds of excellent and affordable Panasonic and Olympus lenses

Summary: You cannot beat this camera for it's picture taking ability, light weight or cost. Big plus, it mounts all kinds of excellent and affordable Panasonic and Olympus lenses. A much better deal than the newer and more expensive Pany LX 100 - check it out!
Excerpt: This camera is gonna be used for wrestling events. The arena's usually have camera policies, this one is perfect for taking a DSLR type camera (that are not allowed)into the arena withought any problems. Images are great and the camera is easy to use. I recommend this to anyone.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I haven't used this for very long, but the more I use it the more I love this camera. I have a 8 year old Canon Rebel XSI that I still use but wanted a smaller travel camera. I love the size of this camera and the quality of pictures. Any fault in pictures so far is mine as I have not really studied all that this camera can do. I look forward to spending a lot of time learning the details of this camera. The only drawback is that the auto flash is not really auto.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Summary: I purchased this as a backup to my GH4...and I ended up liking this little camera so much I use it just as often, if not even more so, than the GH4. It fits quite comfortably in my hands...it has a little "bump-out" on the right hand side of the grip to fit your hand. The biggest "Con" I would claim is that the buttons on the rear of the camera are a little close together...which is expected for such a diminutive body.
Excerpt: Years ago i was shooting with Nikon F801 (Film Days : -)) and also developed and printed by my own. then life took me to other places but slowly i started again this time with digital cameras like Pana FZ35/38. now I wanted a quality camera, compact, capable, with interchangeable lenses ETC. in short i wanted my old camera but smaller...The GX7 has a nice ISO range and comes with plenty of features that are really convenient.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
